“HOPELESS”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

yes, this place used to be best in the area once upon a time but now this place does not belong to Puran Singh or his family. It is sold now. Serving worst food and I agree Mr. Rahul J probably must be selling desessed chickens.
All food flat, no taste,

Rather search other places apart bus stand.

“The legend and the original dhaba is no more...!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

When I first saw four “Puran Singh da dhaba” and each proclaiming to be the original, I was confused. I had heard a lot about Puran Singh's meat dishes and keema and that the plate was refilled with 'tari' even before you finished and Puran Singh closed his dhaba well before 5 pm so that other dhaba walas could do the dinner business, etc. But here I was with 4 of them and none of them looking hygienic or inviting.

However, I noticed a big banner on top of one of the dhabas adjacent to the cantt. bus stand proclaiming that Rocky and Mayur of the 'HOMP' fame had been to that dhaba, I decided that that was my best bet to be original Puran Singh's.

Well, the taste of the food, ambiance and unhygienic condition of the dhaba left a lot to desire and nothing that I saw or ate was worth a mention, it was like any other road side dhaba. And beware, I have seen the following on many dhabas on NH1, they may serve a useless plate of salad without asking giving an impression that that was complimentary but later on they will add the cost of salad to your bill.

“Average Now - Was Great Earlier”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

I am an Ambalaite so know this place pretty well. Have been there many times. Unfortunately its only the name that is left now and is remembered by what it was in its golden days when it was run by Mr. Pooran Singh himself. Earlier you wouldn't find a place to sit and eat here and who knows if you were even lucky enough to get his much famous chicken post 1400 hrs. But now you would find 3 pooran singh's dhabas there by the name "Asli Pooran Singh Ka Dhaba", "Pooran Singh Ka Dhaba" and "New Pooran Singh Dhaba" which is said and heard that after Mr. Pooran Singh passed away, his 3 sons divided and opened 3 different properties in the almost similar names. But The Authentic Pooran Singh Taste is only missed and remembered now. The food that you get now at either of the pooran singh dhabas is just like any other regular punjabi food joint.
