Dil-E-Punjab is a garden restaurant with open and covered areas. As the name suggests, it serves mainly North Indian food but also has some other popular Indianised Chinese, Mexican and Italian dishes.
Located along the Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway, this restaurant has a rustic feel with wood plank tables and benches set in pavilion like dining areas as well as outdoors. Colorful paintings and nature scenes decorate the walls. Charpois have been set in the gardens to enhance the dhaba-like look and feel of the restaurant. The restaurant is specially attractive at night.
This restaurant has the expected range of North Indian and tandoori starters like the Veg Malai Seekh Kebab, Bharwan Tandoori Aloo, and various versions of paneer tikka like Peshawari, Tandoori, Lababdar and Lasooni. They also have Chinese style starters – their version of Spring Rolls is specially popular with a crispy wrapping, Indianised vegetable filling, and some cream. The Crispy Mushrooms is also one of their hot sellers.
While they have sizzlers, pastas, Tex Mex and global dishes, it is the North Indian dishes that are the stars here like the Dil-e-Punjab Special comprising paneer and vegetables in a green and red mixed gravy. The main dishes are classified by the colour of the gravy – Brown, Red, Green and White. The kofta dishes are also popular. There is also a good range of comfort foods like Palak Khichdi and Masala Khichdi, Dahi Tadka, Baigan Bharta and Kathiawadi dishes like Lasaniya Bataka and Sev Tamatar. There are also rice dishes and Indian breads – the Cheese Garlic Naan is good and they also have an acceptable Roomali Roti.
