About the restaurant
Found on Preston’s High Street, Privileged Punjab Authentic Indian is bringing quality Indian cuisine to Melbourne’s masses. Amid body shops, tire stores and car washes, Privileged Punjab is spicing up the area with incredible Indian food hailing from the northern region of the subcontinent. While Punjabi cuisine is generally less spicy than its counterpart from southern India, Privileged Punjab is known to throw a hot dish or two into the mix for good measure.
Locals from across Thornbury, Preston, and all over the Melbourne metropolitan area are raving about the delicious food on offer at Privileged Punjab Authentic Indian. At this local hotspot, it really is a privilege to get served such excellent cuisine in such a hospitable environment. The interior is decorated in dark colours, but the dishes are bright and colourful, all freshly made to order, and spiced to your liking. Owing to its cosy size, it’s always a good idea to book in advance at this busy eatery on High Street.
A popular restaurant for both lunch and dinner, Privileged Punjab Authentic Indian is proud to serve some of Preston’s best South Asian cuisine. Make sure to take one of several dishes cooked in the tandoor, a clay oven found commonly in the Punjabi kitchen. Go for fusion dishes like the veggie Manchurian, a vegetarian specialty made using a fusion of Chinese and Indian flavours – choose your spice level and enjoy your dish as hot as you like. If you’re up for something traditional, try the cholley bhature, a classic Punjabi dish made from cooking chole (spicy chickpeas) with bhatoora, a fried bread. A hearty and unique dish, it’s a must-try for Melbourne foodies looking to expand their repertoire of South Asian favourites.
