Punjabi by Nature Restaurant Review

: Perhaps one of the most intriguing fast-food eateries in the area is this Leesburg Indian destination with a lengthy, creative menu. Start with jus egg parantha (fried herbed bread) or one of the rolls/wraps, such as the tava lamb seekh kebab roll or the chicken tikka kathi roll. Tandoori specials include grilled lamb chops, and indeed the non-veg dishes are more plentiful: goat lababdar (goat curry) and the butter chicken come with rice or naan. The bread selection is extensive; the best bets are garlic naan and the green chilly (chili) parantha, though the onion kulcha may tempt as well. Drink options are minimal, and the kitchen offers only two desserts: gulab jamun and rasmalai. Place your order and wait for the waiter to bring your tray. Also located at 13955 MetroTech Dr., Chantilly, 571-830-0123.
