Most of the rural Punjabi cuisine restaurants are situated on the highways called as Dhaba and serve authentic home cooked food. They are built with local available materials and have earthy feel. Rural Punjabi restaurants do not have air conditioners. Natural light and ventilation is one of the key factors. Rangla punjab was designed keeping in mind these principals and designers have tried to adapt rural construction techniques with local materials in the decor.
The open terrace of the restaurant has a feature of an actual truck that acts as a main feature and is used to go on the upper level. To lift an actual truck to the terrace level that is about 24 meter above ground level was the biggest challenge. It was achieved by lifting it with the help of a crane, secured properly with cables.
