SERVING TRADITIONAL PUNJABI CUISINE SINCE 1946
The Punjab restaurant in Covent Garden is the first and oldest Punjabi, North Indian Restaurant in the United Kingdom. It was founded by Sardar Gurbachan Singh Maan in 1946, to be a home away from home for his fellow country people, with Punjabi home cooked food from fresh ingredients.
Today, the Maan family continue to keep Sardar Gurbachan Singh’s values, ethos and many of his recipes alive.
Punjab Covent Garden remains a mid-range restaurant popular with people from all walks of life, including from local residents to city professionals, from students to tourists both national and international. It has become an iconic feature of Covent Garden having been based in Neal Street since 1951.
All have always been and always are welcome to the Punjab Restaurant, and we embrace our complex British Punjabi history, as the many pictures on our walls tell. We strive to treat all patrons as guests attending the Maan family home.
