    1. Punjab Grill, Multiple Outlets

    2. Pritam Da Dhaba, Dadar

With Persian elements thrown into the mix, this place seems interesting from the moment you walk through the door. Khatiyas lay all around in the non-AC section and an atmosphere like that just calls for you to order a plate of Butter Chicken, Sarso Da Saag, Roti and a tall glass of Lassi. Although there is an AC section, the khatiyas are where the fun lies.
