It’s a Punjabi Affair owners Amanjit and Mauli Sarkaria have made it simple for locals to try Punjabi-style Indian food.

When you visit the quaint hole-in-the wall restaurant, you’ll find the guesswork has been taken out of ordering. The easy-to-navigate menu contains a sampling of entrees and sides designed with Americans in mind. The spice has been dialed back to accommodate local palates, but the cooks will cater the heat to personal preference on every order. And, everything is spelled phonetically to help patrons order easily.

Since Punjabi’s May 5 opening, the most popular dish has proved to be the creamy Butter Chicken. For the more adventurous eater, the Biri-Yani – spicy for those that like it hot – and Nakh-rah Naan, a flat bread sandwich with a zesty sauce that’s messy but worth the added clean-up. This summer, cool down with refreshing Nimbu Laid – lime and ginger lemonade.
