I have heard about the dhaba from my uncle who visited few days back. They tried Aloo paratha thali and lassi. We too tried aloo paratha thali, paratha thali, lassi and firni. The thalis and the lassi was awesome. The firni was so so.

We absolutely loved Kesar da Dhaba place, food was amazing, it's clean and personal is very friendly. I've been 3 times to india, but this is one of the best food I've tried so far. Definitely must visit in Amritsar :)

Very Good food, quick service, very helpful, Good Amritsari vegetarian cuisine, cooked in true Panjabi style. Value for money. Please bear a little with hygiene.

This was the statement I over heard on my arrival at Amritsar Market, between some people. So being a foodie I was curious as to aisa kya hai yaar yahan pe. It was then that I decided to pay this eatery a visit. Located in the bylanes of Amritsar you will have to ask for directions as it is not... More

Kesar da dhaba is a default name you'll hear when you inquire about authentic Amritsari cuisine. The place well known for its daal, does complete justice to one's expectations. Don't expect swanky sitting area, service etiquette and clean surroundings. The waiting is constant. Discount the ambiance and you'll enjoy your meal.

Ok... It feels congested simple because the number of people who want to dine here is always more than the space available. But the moment you taste the food, you know why people want to dine out here. I still can't forget the kheer and gulab jamun we had here. We went there twice during our stay in Amritsar.

Visit this place if you are craving for amritsari crispy parathas Though service is not up to the mark but the taste of parathas would make you ignore that aspect

it is just brilliant and a must have the crisp outer layer with no hint of ghee and the moist white inside are a delight Please sit in the family section on first floor only and have patience for the order which they take their own time in taking but once ordered the food arrives in max 5 minutes.

I was taken to this place by a local with lots of hoopla about Kesar da Dhabha, after a lovely visit to Golden Temple. we took cycle rickshaw from Temple and after a lousy ride in the lanes at about 9 PM reached this place in a dinghy lane with nail flowing on both sides. But the crowd waiting for... More

A century old eatery, in the narrow lanes of the old city. The food was as good as anywhere else in Punjab. Liked the rickshaw ride to the dhaba. The ambience was old-world.
