“Great food - don't ask more ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Location - heard of City. Within a kilometre or two from Golden Temple in a narrow lane.

Ambience - desi dhaba, be prepared to sweat, noticing fancy, very basic. Believe they have a AC seating in an opposite place - with some different board

Hygeine - Average. Do not peep into the kitchen - you may not end up eating

Service - high headed waiters who know you are here for legendary value and do not care to provide a difference

Food - oily, heavy but yum. The Kulcha is very well prepared. I was bowled over.

“Not worth...owners are arrogant and waiters are careless.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

It is understaffed and waiters keep forgetting the order. The owner wouldn't care. Food is just average and too oily.

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

You can expect to have a typical mouth watering punjabi fare here but do not expect something exceptional which is not available in other eating joints in Amritsar. every second restaurant serves excellent food. This character in food comes from the water quality in amritsar. go enjoy your food here but don"t regret if you did not get the chance to have a food here... other
road side eating joints in town are as good , go and enjoy food where ever you get chance to.....

“Disappointed ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

There's too much hype about this place, it was definetly not one of the best..the paranthas were crisp but very bland and full of ghee..the subjee was full of oil too..the desserts were average..we didn't enjoy our meal but ended up with a heavy tummy ;(

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We visited this place after receiving very good review from my relatives. Location is in old city area but food is really worth going there. Specially deal makhni and tandoori parantha. A must visit place in Amritsar for all food lovers.
