Taste of Amritsar..

We were at Kesar ka dhaba within 20 minutes of landing in Amritsar. Have had food here before too and the memories pulled me back again. The thali has the same dal, chole and raita with choice of laccha or different paranthas. Was disappointed that the taste of dal has deteriorated as it's not the... read more

Being a chef, it was indeed a pleasure to savour the exotic yet simple, heavy yet subtle cuisine of this kitchen... amazing food I would say... it was simple home style traditional indian cooking... where people worked religiously just with one motto of making some fantasic food... hats off to all of them. .. I am definitely coming back to... More

I think this simple dhaba is one of the HIGHEST RATED PLACE in Amritsar. To reach here one has to travel through a maze of narrow roads. At first sight Kesar Da Dhaba looked very ordinary, but tasting the food made me realise what all the fuss was about. Diet conscious people should avoid as everything served here is loaded... More

We had gone there on a Saturday night and the first thing you struggle with is the location. This dhaba is located in a very narrow lane. Anyway, we ordered FULL rajma and kadai paneer and was "shocked" to see the quantity! The taste was very average as per food that you get to taste in Punjab. One can get... More

Nothing much good about it. Everything is excess ghee, phirni is not a miss though. Without ghee it is same as you get in Delhi. Order only dal fry and aloo paratha if you want to try out this joint.

Interesting atmosphere and good food. Took a bit of work to find, but everyone knows where it is if you ask. The breads were excellent but we were less impressed by the curries, which were drenched in oil.

I sincerely wish i could eat a lot more than i can. This is yumness galore - especially the chana and the dal (makhani). It is UNBELIEVABLE! Please do order these dishes along with a glass of lassi! yum! Price is cheap as well.

Most amazing, delicious, yummy, tasty food I ever had. Very good preparation and recipe. Although place look quite old and in a congested area but I can travel to any place for such a food. Rasmalai was awesome...never had such rasmalai in my life. I would like to visit this place again and again !!
