“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Visited the ground floor which is the real restaurant, the first floor is a party lounge. Be warned the ground floor serves only beer, which is such a waste. But I asked if I could get my own little bottle of whisky, to which they agreed. I had the chicken roulade starter (called the murgh surkh e angaar). Then the grilled fish with basil, mash potato and champagne cream. I didn't know that mash potato could taste so good with fish, usually associate fish with chips but this was amazing with the great sauce. Finally the sizzling brownie, which was alright except they topped it with peanuts! They should do walnuts instead!! Perhaps the best eating joint in Amritsar.

“Good food at the Ground Floor one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

There are two restos called Crystal. We visited the ground floor. The other one is above it.

We had the Amritsari fish which wasn't called that on the menu but we were told that's what it was along with a butter chicken, rice and naan. Food was delicious and service very good. We also had the sizzling chocolate brownie which was excellent.

It was a bit expensive but we knew it was going to be and it was a really nice meal. We went early when there weren't many people there. Go later for more atmosphere I presume.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Make sure you find the correct part of this restaurant, which is situated on the ground floor (there is another place upstairs).
This was a very busy restaurant with lots of locals eating there, and we were warned to book in advance, which was necessary!
A great menu and service was excellent. Food was fantastic and they even went out and bought us a bottle of local wine (quite expensive, but well worth it!).

“Nice enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Serves beer, and a good butter chicken. Nothing super special but felt like a reliable place to have an evening meal, when you have exhausted the local dhabas.

Lovely food. I recall having the Paneer Makhni and the Frontier chicken which was delicious. Nice ambience with very lively staff
