This ever popular restaurant in section 28 now has 3 outlets in the mall. One has AC, one without and one al fresco. All serve delicious, very fresh, good value food with excellent service.Best butter chicken in northern India. Recommended *****

I had heard so much about the place so wanted to see what it is all about. Food was just OKAY. and to top it all I had to see 1 piece of Rubber band in my Butter Chicken. So Disappointing that was.

I ate here twice in two days. Need I say more. My driver in Chandigarh recommended to eat at pal's ...There are two of them adjacent to each other. Don't know which is the original, both are good, I prefer the one which is not on the corner.

It is located at sector 28. Very easily accessible. Two can dine for Rs. 600. There are two premises old (non AC) and new (Air conditioned) right right next to each other. Mutton roganjosh was excellent.

My friends told me "Don't miss Pal Dhaba, even Prime Minister of Canada has dined there...". I followed their advice. Quite a let down actually. You can find food like that across Chandigarh and Punjab easily. The food is too oily, too much masala, and served rather unhygienically. The place smells of food cooked over the years. Not the place... More

I had heard a lot about this restaurant and seen mixed reviews on trip advisor. Decided to give it a try anyway. Tried two of their curries, mutton roghan josh and butter chicken and I have to say the taste did not disappoint. Service can be improved.

Ultra high prices and decent food prep, service can be better as the same outlet has been enjoying the royalties of decades, yet they fail to provide decent rates in town

Tari Chicken is a worth a try. Reasonably priced. Quick service. However parking is an issue. Non vegetarian dishes are all good

A must visit food joint for Non Vegetarians specifically Mutton Rogan Josh is awesome. Dal makhani is similarly delicious and gives you a taste of ethnic Punjabi flavours.
