title: Punjab Palace
html_text: Lots of things can make a restaurant great, but sometimes it just boils down to the simple stuff. "I like to give people good food," says Parmjit Singh, the owner of Punjab Palace in Allston. "As long as they come back happy, I'm happy." It's hard not to be happy at a place where chefs use a deft touch when developing and executing one mouthwatering recipe after another. While Bollywood films play on TVs overhead, forks dive into lamb masala, flaky samosas, goat vindaloo, and ginger-garlic vegetable jalfrezi. It's no surprise that Punjab Palace has been lauded by Zagat for six consecutive years and was nearly voted into Congress as a write-in candidate.
