Yes this place used to have food to die for but sadly that's not the case anymore. Infact they should change their tag line to '100 years of great taste that was...' So if you subscribe to panju food = truckloads of butter n ghee n to hell with the taste.. Then this is the place. Over crowded.. We shared... More

Before visiting this place, I had not even heard its name but our local guest (or you could call her a host even! ) strongly recommended for Kesar Dhaba for the dinner. There was no reason to reject the recommendation and we stopped an e-rickshaw and asked the driver to take us to the Kesar Dhaba. I am not sure... More

Situated in narrow lanes of old Amritsar you can taste the authentic veg Punjabi food . Best is maa ki dal and parantha over flowing with pure desi ghee . desi ghee gives the true blue Punjabi favours only available at kesar dhaba.

Kesar da dhaba is a culinary delight. Dont count your calories when you are here. Just indulge in the super awesome aloo parathas along with dal and any paneer gravy. Finger licking good food. For sweets, gulab jamun and rasmalai are really popular. Finish of your meal with a tall glass of creamy Lassi.. yummy.. The place gets crowded so... More

Pros: 1. Authentic punjabi food; very filling gobi paratha. I could only eat 1 owing to the huge size. 2. Lassi was too good. The glass is huge. Cons: 1. The place is located about 1 km from Golden Temple & can be reached by rickshaw for Rs 10. However the streets are not very clean. So avoid walking. 2.... More

The most authentic Punjabi cuisine available in Punjab. A mandatory visit. Leave the calorie counter home if you wish to enjoy the food there. Dal makhani, palak paneer, choley, lacha paratha, bhurtha in the main course while phirni, ras malai in the deserts. You can also see the kitchen and the tandoors.
