The tandoori chicken was the star of the meal - juicy and oh-so-tender, it flaked immediately on touching. Unlike the typical overly-spiced, angry-red coloured chicken that you get in Delhi, this was mildly spiced, had no extra colouring and was delicious. The owner came out to greet us warmly. The waiter was informative and helpful. Even offered to get a... More

Been here on every visit to Amritsar. The service is fabulous and efficient, and the food is also great. The mutton kebabs are a must must try, they melt in your mouth, along with the tandoori chicken and amritsari fish which are close seconds. The prices were slightly high in my opinion, where we ended up paying 8000 for a... More

This place was recommended by quite a few of our friends so we decided to have one dinner at this outlet.

Service was really slow, so... More

This is an awesome place. The food is very good, authentic indian without being dumped with oil. Cleanliness is topline which is a rarity in small indian towns, owner takes personal interest in ensuring you are taken care of ... A must visit if u r in town.

Food here is amazing. Amrtisari chicken, Tandoori and Mutton ( Lamb) was all recommended by the owner. I am thankful to my wife for having followed up to visit this place. Please take the time and make this must visit on your trip. About 15 min travel time from the temple complex. The place is neat and very very clean.

Surjit restaurant, located in the Nehru Market on Lawrence Road / Mall Road crossing has just about the best tandoori chicken I've ever tasted. The interiors are spartan, impeccably clean and the service is prompt. The owner, Surjit, warms up to sharing his photos with various celebrities if one strikes up a conversation. He is assisted ably by his two... More

We went there after we saw it on Lonely planet food guide. The ambiance is totally basic, but the food is lip smacking! Minced Mutton cooked in butter was totally amazing. It is also frequented by celebs(They even have a photo album on it). Must eat here.
