Since its inception, Punjab Grill has become one of the most critically acclaimed gourmet fine dining restaurants in India and is considered by many to be a crown jewel of North Indian Frontier gourmet cuisine. It takes you on a culinary journey into the grandeur of undivided Punjab. The experience is an exploration of the extraordinary diversity of the Frontier region’s food and the rich influences of Pathani, Punjabi and Haryanvi cuisine; a tradition carried south by immigrants of West Punjab, who have lovingly cherished and preserved it. Punjab Grill’s interiors are a reflection of this influence and create a dynamic visual journey and experience through the space; adapting traditional narratives and imagery yet interpreting them in an original and contemporary manner.

We are confident that the addition of Punjab Grill to Abu Dhabi will enhance the restaurant scene not just in the city but in the country. The launch is a significant step for Lite Bite Foods in the Middle East as well as internationally.”, he said.
