A vegetarian delight in narrow dirty lanes.

Reaching this place was back breaking . The route was narrow and had piles of filth every where. We wanted to turn back half way but the e rickshaw driver persuaded us and we landed up there.Can not guarantee the hygiene part because of the general environment in the area.

This place is a must visit for foodies. Kesar is around 100 year old located in the old Amritsar city. One of my favourite places to eat in Amritsar five star quality. If you have punjabi taste buds you can not resist this food cooked in DESI GHEE. Every dish is worth a taste you should not miss dal makhni,... More

The best vegetarian stuff ever!! The folks are helpful. The kitchen is huge and hearts are kind. The parantha is crushed by the server right before it's served to you. It drips with ghee, yet you don't feel stuffed after a hearty meal. The matka kulfi and the phirni are a must. Go ahead, book an auto and then drive... More

Excellent Place to Visit to have food especially Dinner.. Their Signature Daal is great... recently they have improved interiors a but still traditional.. however, be prepared to wait for atleast 30 min before you get to sit.

I went to eat in Kesar Da Dhaba on my friends advice. And it was excellent. I had Dal Makhni, Malai Kofta, Lacha Paratha all this items were mind blowing and mouth watering. If you go to Amritsar you must visit this place.

Don't try to use google to reach this place. Near to Golden Temple. Around 100 years old restaurant. Very nice food. Since a very old building doesn't looks lavish and gives a feeling of unhygenic but the food is good

Overall good experience... Ghee is used quite freely in cooking... take care of your weight if you start indulging
