Let’s Raise a Glass for Punjabi’s 8th Anniversary!

This Wednesday, April 8th marks the 8th anniversary of my favorite Indian restaurant in Beijing – Punjabi! With my close proximity to Punjabi’s location at the south end of Lucky Street (the strip of restaurants just north of Chaoyang Park West Gate), this restaurant is not only my go-to place when I’m craving curries but it’s also now become my favorite delivery service when I want amazing food fast (recommended if you live in the Chaoyang Park neighborhood).
Having been open in Beijing before the Olympic mad rush that consequently led to a flurry in the capital’s F&B industries, Punjabi has flourished under the test of time, in spite of the Beijing food scene’s fickle tendencies. And what I admire and respect most about Punjabi is that they are always looking to improve and innovate with new dishes and drinks on a regular basis (which keeps me coming back time and again). Most recently, they’ve been hard at work getting ready for the upcoming launch of their upstairs modern Afghan Lounge concept called Bamiyan -another event to look forward to!
But this Wednesday, it’s time to raise a glass and celebrate all the feasts, parties and good times Punjabi has hosted over the past 8 years with a full-on Bollywood bash!
