The line at Painted Burro spilled out on to the sidewalk and dashed my hopes that Chucky and I would be able grab a quick bite. So, instead we meandered into the half-empty Punjabi Grill. Punjabi Grill is fairly new; the 4th Indian restaurant to occupy that location in Davis Square. I ordered my standard (saag paneer) and Chucky opted for 2 appetizers: the chicken tikka and a potato coquette-like dish (I forget the name).
I thought my saag was excellent; good spinach flavor, mild heat and tender cubes of cheese. The chicken tikka was moist, and his fried potato coquettes were tasty. I was pleased with the meal and will certainly go again when I’m craving Indian.
