Description: In a city steeped in tradition, from its historic buildings to the commercial activities, there is only one family owned restaurant that has endured for 80 incredible, edible years. Crystal Restaurant opened its doors in Amritsar in 1935. Crystal's authentic brand of multi cuisine cooking became a staple in the city, and has continued in their tradition spanning more than three generations. Crystal has also served many beloved stars from Bollywood, sports, business and society. Today, Crystal has remained an iconic family owned and operated business, where friends regularly come to enjoy tasty sumptuous meals, celebrate a special occasion or share in a romantic evening out in our cozy, inviting restaurant & lounge. The sophisticated yet intimate ambience is just a prelude to the pleasures of the exquisite cuisine complimented by extensive and carefully selected wine cellar.

While not being anything spectacular (We were swayed by the #5 ranking on TA), Crystal is somewhat of a landmark in the city. It has served its most loyal patrons for decades and this was evident in its clientele.

We went there for dinner on 31st May and I'll have to say we came back satisfied. I went there with my family and they were courteous to offer us a seating fairly quickly even though the place was packed. The chicken was well cooked, the mixed-veg was a standard North-Indian-Jalfrezy-tasting melange while the dal was very good.

Overall, if you are saturated with all the chola kulcha and fish Amritsari, Crystal will offer you a nice break and not disappoint you. However, if you're in Amritsar for only one night, there are better places to pick for your only dinner in this foodie city.

We had dinner on 29th may 2013.food was good. Ambiance good. Service slow. But very much costly. Lots of noise around. Good crowd.
Food given to us was not value for the money.
It is alright for executive and burocrates.
Not for tourist like us.

OK, if you want a big city experience and are not the person who takes to the local cuisine very easily and needs the table, cutlery and table cloth, this probably could be one of the best in Amritsar. It has everything on the menu - Indian, Chinese, Italian, Snacks...so if you want a break from the Amritsari cuisine you can come and have your fill. Yes portions are big, the Chinese is your typical North Indian Chinese, however not bad in taste and very decent. Being in Amritsar I cannot compare the Indian you get at the local outlets or say a Kesar da Dhaba. Service is slow since I think most of Amritsar's upmarket gentry visits this place.
