With the same zeal and excitement I took the initiative and convinced all the group members to have lunch over there. WHAT TO EXPECT: Since the dhaba is located in the... More

Amritsar is the city for foodies and there is no better place than kesar da dhaba. Yummy food is served here and just forget the calories. Palak paneer and dal makahni are a must. Great value for money. Phirni is a must over here.

this is not the most conveniently located place. its quite a life endangering experience trying to reach it due to the narrow lanes which will test any vehicle.. but the food here is heavenly.. u must try the gobi paratha and the maa ki daal. also the pheerni is absolutely amazing.. the food from kesar da dhaba is even better...

It is one of the best amritsari kulcha parathas I ever had. Service was really good and lassi was awesome. Tried the matka kulfi and firni.. dont have enough words to praise. Little difficult to reach as it quiet inside the streets, but once there its a delight. Whenever I just think of it, I really wish to be there... More

I had read on WikiTravel that this places serves the best Dal Makhani in the World. However compared to that, the taste wasnt that extraordinary. Lassi was great Parathas were nice Dal Makhani was good, but not extraordinary Its good to try this places, if you havent ever eaten at a dhaba.

If you love authentic north indian food then this place to visit . Though you will not find a very posh enviornment but you can feel and taste the real punjabi authentic food here . The daal makhani was just out of the world served with amritsari kulcha's.
