Oye Punjabi, Kalyan - Good food in a Punjab themed restaurant

We went there on Holi day for a “pit stop” lunch driving back from Deolali. Located in Kalyan before the start of the Nashik Mumbai expressway.

Cute “Punjabi ambience”  with lawns and several lifestyle statues of men, women and children in traditional Punjabi attire.

It has seating in the wide verandah around the building and a huge indoor air conditioned section.

It has a nice rustic look and feel with a Punjab ambiance.   

There were three of us. We went through the creative looking menu and ordered the Murg Sarson Kebab (an Oye Punjabi special) from the tandoori section. We followed this with parathas from the breakfast menu. We had green peas paratha, gobi paratha and mutton anda paratha. Each was served with dahi, chana dal and aloo matter bhaji. The parathas were stuffed full and very well made.  

Beer is available and it has ample parking space. The main entrance is flanked by a paan shop so one can end the meal with a custom made paan 

Cost – very cost effective: a good meal for under 400 per head

Verdict: we would visit again, likely to take visitors from overseas, and certainly whenever we are in the vicinity – travelling on NH3
