This is a very old and famous dhaba of amritsar. The tourists specially visit for its special amritsari flavours. No doubt about it, it does have a very distinct and nice flavor specially in the dal. The locality is a little dirty though.

It is deep inside the Town. You have to leave your vehicle about 350 metre away from the narrow lane Dhaba of more than 100 years old. Tandoori Paratha with Desi Ghee, Urd Maan (Dal Makhani) with Onion is the best to eat with Local Desert of Phirni. Bench sitting with 6 on a table and long que to eat... More

Great amritsari kulchas with amazing stuffing served with dollops of butter and spicy chanas and chutney. Dal makhni is also amazing, cooked to perfection and perhaps the best that you could have ever had. Phirni or kheer is also a must try.

This place was suggested by my friend when I went to Amritsar. This place was quite difficult to locate but it was worth the time. The place was heavily crowded for dinner time. Being a vegetarian, I was excited to try this pure veg place. I was fully satisfied with the quality and quantity of food. The food was full... More

Kesar ka dhaba is a must visit on a trip to Amritsar. It serves up delicious dal makhani, vegetables and khasta rotis and paranthas. Such paranthas (with layers of flour) are only cooked in select places in Amritsar and not found in other parts of the country. The seating and ambience is rustic and dated, so don;t expect much. But... More

There is no restaurant near this for Indian food anywhere in the world. This is the best you will ever have. Lassi, aloo gobhi and off course Dal Fry with aloo kulcha is best. Also pl donot miss kulfee. This place is completing 100 years of establishment this year.

Absolutely worth the hype. Authentic Panjabi food with no pretence. Finally has an AC. It is only about the food and nothing else. Not for those who can't handle rich food.
