...and perhaps the lassi. Don't go crazy when you see the amount of ghee floating in the daal. You are not going to eat that everyday, so enjoy this in all its glory and lap it up with the laccha paratha and some lassi. The rest of the dishes are average to be honest but they cannot be beaten on... More

Kesar da dhaba as shown on the Trip Advisor app is at a wrong location and we went walking from our hotel asking people for the location and found it. It is in a congested area with seating spread across both sides of the road. Limited menu but perfect amritsari food. We got the best lassi here along with mouth... More

Recently been to Amritsar with my family and did my little research beforehand. Kesar Dhaba was so much raved about and was a must-visit for us till we reach there... I have no problems at all with narrow lanes, bumpy rickshaw ride or a small basic eating joint...but the food itself is not great! It is full of Ghee, very... More

Food is quite good and does lives upto the expectation but the location and lack of dining space u can definitely opt for other dhabas which are equally good if not better!!

What an nondescript location and decor for a place that finds 5* rating here... When the food arrives and you soak in the aroma, then you realise why Kesar da Dhaba is the place to have food at. The lassi is full of rich cream and thick milk and its taste...waha, never to be forgotten! The aloo paratha thali shimmers... More

Visited Kesar da Dhaba with my Indian Relatives while on a trip to Golden Temple in Amritsar. It was a short but very bumpy Rikshaw ride away from our little hotel.Unless you really know where you are going its very hard to find. If You are used to spotless and clean dining experience dont bother but if You are after... More

This DHABA has history and you will enjoy if you order right...Order only one bread each if you are normal eater..Forget about Cholestrol when you are there as bread is going to be wrapped with pure desi ghee,, Try PHIRNI also..wish they had better seating..
