Punjab in Arlington Center started a couple of doors down the street and then moved to the current location. Excellent Indian food and they serve lunch 7 days a week for a very reasonable price.
Interior is a bit dark but very pleasant and nicely divided. If you get a table at the far end you can watch the chef work at the Tandoori oven.
I like to get a table at the "Patio" section near the windows where you a have a nice view of Arlington center. There is a small herd of animals in the window that somehow seems to be growing.
You get a cup of Dal soup to start with, nothing special but nice. Did I mention the linen napkins? Or the nice silverware?
Chicken Saagwala is one of my favorites, ordered medium spicy but borders on hot which is fine with me but can be a bit of a surprise to some. Basmati rice is nice with a very fragrant aroma. The onion chutney adds a bit of different heat to the dish. Service is very good and the place is impeccably clean.
The thought of the Day
I hate it when a car stops to let you take a left turn when he's the only one there and nobody's behind him. Doesn't do anybody a favor apart from declaring that he's an idiot that has no clue what goes on around him.
