“This is what you want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Good Food?
Excellent Food !!
One of the most popular Punjabi Food restaurants.
Dal, Thali, Lassi, order whatever you want to and taste the authenticity of the city.
Do try their dal, the dish they swear of.
Must Visit Place.

Thanks

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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!!

“Never to be forgotten lassi....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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 with ghee and the makhani dal in it glistens in its purity...too heavy, too rich...delicious but only for those who like and can digest heavy food.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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 a most amazing taste sensation go there!
Everything we ordered was very good.Yes,maybe a bit too much GHEE,but the food just wold not taste the same if it was not drenched in it.
Messy but amazing.

Outside there was a little desert stand and something really tasty being sold in a little clay dishes....cannot remember the name of the dish but my husband and rest of the family cobbled up numerous portions!!!

GO THERE!

“OLDEST DHABA OF PUNJAB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

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..
