Opening Punjab Grill was a decades-long dream for Karan Singh.

“Ever since I started coming to the U.S. and saw that Indian food wasn’t so well represented here, I’ve been wanting to do something to make Indian food more of a mainstream cuisine,” said Singh, co-owner of the Tysons Corner restaurant American Tandoor and CEO of Punjab Grill US, which has locations in India, Singapore, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.

And planning for that dream was no small feat. Unlike other restaurants that take about a year to build out their space and open their doors, Singh spent five years planning the design and development for Punjab Grill, located on 11th Street NW, just a few blocks from the White House.

Permits and construction are often to blame for opening delays, but Punjab Grill’s source of slowness had a lot to do with its aesthetics. Nearly everything in the 5,000-square-foot restaurant — from the marble floors, to the sandstone walls, to the 3-ton faceted ceiling — was built in India and shipped to the U.S.

“The floor that you’re standing on right here, it was cut and pieced together painstakingly then taken apart, numbered and sent to us. And we actually put it back together here like a jigsaw puzzle,” said Singh, who sent his American contractor to India to spend time with the artisans and builders to “coordinate everything down to the last screw.”
