Punjab Arlington

Not much have changed at Punjab in Arlington since I first wrote about this place almost three years ago. I used to have lunch here every Monday but with all the new Indian places opening it's less frequent now but usually still at least once a month. The price of the lunch specials went up a dollar a while ago but are still very reasonable. For $8.95 (chicken dishes), you get soup, typically lentil soup but on occasion, they have other soups, an entree, linen napkins and impeccable service. It's also service with a smile, a lot of Indian restaurants seems to take pride in hiring grumps.

They are located in central Arlington with free on-street parking and there is also a (metered) big parking lot behind the restaurant.

They have a small patio seating in front of the windows and it's such a pleasant place to have lunch especially on a sunny day like today. They do serve the lunch specials seven days a week unless there is any hint of a holiday.

Today it was the standard lentil soup that is very good and really tasty. The condiment containers are spotless, something I never noticed until I had a meal down the street where they were less than spotless.

One of my favorites here, Chicken Saagwala ($8.95) ordered medium with perfectly cooked basmati rice. Their concept of medium spicy I would call marginally on the hot side, but this is fine with me. This dish is soo good and is now even better after I found out I could order it with dark meat only. Occasionally the white meat was a bit dry. The onion chutney is also seriously tasty and hot. One thing that has changed is the Chicken Vindaloo that used to be excellent but is now more of chicken in tomato sauce.
