Mr. Surmukh “Goli” Singh
Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder

When Mr. Surmukh Singh moved to Louisiana, he discovered the lack of authentic North Indian food anywhere in this region. He spun the idea of opening an authentic home-style ethnic North Indian vegetarian and non-vegetarian restaurant, with his friend, Mr. Paul. Mr. Paul liked Mr. Singh’s ambition to expand the gas station into an Indian restaurant serving North Indian cuisine.

Mr. Paul
Chief Administrative Officer & Co-Founder

Since that moment, Mr. Paul and Mr. Singh worked tirelessly to accomplish their mission of opening a great restaurant for their patrons to enjoy authentic North Indian cuisine away from their homeland. Mr. Singh and Mr. Paul joined hands as co-founders and opened their first authentic North Indian restaurant in a gas station - sounds a little off track, but a unique concept.

Mr. Manpreet Singh “Manu”
President & Treasurer

Mr. Singh invited Chef Negi, who was based in New York, to assist in this venture. Chef Negi had experience working as celebrity chef at famous North Indian restaurants in India and in New York. Even though Chef Negi had faith in the concept, he could not move to Louisiana immediately. He agreed to train the team working at the restaurant for four months before returning to New York. Finally, in 2021, Chef Negi came back to Louisiana and joined Mr. Singh and Mr. Paul in this joint venture.

Mr. Gurjeet Singh
Vice-President & Secretary

In 1983, Mr. Singh arrived from Punjab, India to the United States and worked as a Taxi Driver in New York. In 2020, Mr. Singh moved to Louisiana and joined the Punjabi Dhabba team as partner.

Chef Sohn
Executive Chef

Mr. Singh happened to be in New York attending a wedding reception. Chef Sohn was catering that event and Mr. Singh enjoyed the delicious and authentic North Indian cooking and he invited Chef Sohn to join him in this endeavor. Chef Sohn moved to Louisiana in 2020 and has been with Mr. Singh since then.

Chef Negi
Executive Chef

Mr. Singh again invited Mr. Manu to partner with the Punjabi Dhabba team at this new concept. This hardworking young lad enthusiastically grabbed at the opportunity to partner with the rest of the team.

These four friends, from different walks of life, along with the two Executive Chefs, formed the Punjabi Dhabba team as partners and established themselves in providing authentic homestyle North Indian cuisine.
