We got the korma and Chana masala- both were great! Apricot/date naan was delicious, like dessert naan. Went on a Sunday and there were other customers, great cozy quiet vibe.
The buffet is everything you want in an Indian restaurant. Chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, curry, veggies, pakora, and heaps of rice. As a nice bonus, there was hot chai masala tea, which is delicious.
Like every time I’m at the buffet, I have about three plates, but I Zero in on the next stuff. Which, here, was the Paola. It was perfect.
The new Shan-A-Punjab is definitely a step up from its old location! Use to go there for their 6.95 lunch buffet for students, which was definitely worth the price but no where close to their current lunch buffet. The goat curry and meatball dishes were amazing. Also had one of the best chickpea dishes I've ever had (was mixed with some of their spinach or "palak" and very well seasoned). I will admit their tandoori chicken and massala chicken were a little dry, but the flavoring and sauces were still on point. Also don't miss out on their chai tea which is delicious as well! Overall great experience and left feeling like an oversized glutton. Win.
