Best paneer dishes in NYC!
Posted by ADAM on 06/23/2010
I have eaten from this restaurant countless times and have to admit that the food is the best tasting Indian food. After trying a few places, It's the only place I will order from when I need delicious, full of flavor, authentic Indian food. I regularly place orders and find that the staff is extremely friendly, willing to go out of their way to accommodate your request. If you prefer your food to be spicy or not, you can certainly request this. Also, the food is delivered in a timely manner, never having to wait too long like some other restaurants.

Very Authentic Taste, absolutely love it! I havent had such good punjabi food in East coast!! From Chicken dishes to Bhel, everything is yumm....cant get enough of it! I work in midtown and Punjabi tadka is way better than any other Indian restaurants...simply uncomparable.

I have never been to this place but order from it all the time and must say it is a great value for the money. They have large portions.

There are 2 Desi Junctions: One is vegetarian and the other is not. This one listed is NOT strictly vegetarian. The other one is. They are also both on 10th avenue, only a few blocks (I think 3 blocks) away from each other. The owners are different so they are separate entities- they just happen to have the same name. I think some of the disagreement in the reviews might be because of this. I have eaten at Desi Junction (the non-vegetarian one) and the food is ridiculously good. I love Indian food and this has got to be one of the best I have ever had in NYC. And it is true like some of the reviewers said, it does taste like home cooking - trust me, I may not be Indian, but when you try it, you'll know what I mean. Word of caution, however, this food is not for the faint of heart - the food is spicy. I, myself, love spicy food, but even this I had to catch my breath here and there. The Tandoori chicken is moist and not dried out, not too spicy yet creamy- oh my god..getting hungry just typing this. They have a lunch special: for around 6:50$, you get basmati rice and you can pick three choice of dishes. He usually has 2 kinds of meat dishes and I think 6 vegetarian/cheese dishes to choose from. When you walk in, he has all of them set up like hot foods you find in deli's, except you don't actually help yourself. You pick out what you want and the guy puts it all in a styrofoam container ( a big one). If you want, you can eat there. Past the cashier, there is a decetly sized room with TVs and tables and chairs, kind of like a pizza joint style. But don't kid yourself, not somwehere you want to bring a date. This isnt a restaurant- like I said, it's kind of like a pizza joint, except with really kick ass Indian food. The place does look run down, but the food tastes fresh and to be honest, after I tried their food the first time, I really didn't care - particularly since I take out always. The only thing I wish this place would do would be to actually put little signs of the food so I don't have to make the poor guy explain to me every single dish.

I have been to this restaurant several times and it is because the food is as authentic as it can get in NYC. Unless of course you travel to India. My family is into Punjabi food and they always insist on take out from Desi Junction. We travel from Queens for this!

The Food is really good. The service is quick. The closest I have come to have Home cooked Punjabi Food. Highly recommend it.
