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.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Butter chicken, Fish Amritsari, Kebab platter and crisp Tandoori Rotis are but a few of the must have. The service is average but the food has remained good over the years. Many Crystals have cropped up, the Original one in the ground floor is still in the lead. A must try restaurant in Amritsar!

“Good Food”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I had lunch worth 2 uncle and my wife. The food, ambiance was good.The staff there are cooperative and fast. However, they don't keep cloth napkin which I recommended them to have it. Every thing was fine. Dal Makhani was Awesome.

“Good food, slow service..”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

My 2nd visit to the City and to this Restaurant..

the place is centrally located, almost always fully occupied. Mostly caters to the tourists - of all kinds.. this is much evident from their menu which has selection from almost all kinds of cuisine.

The food is above average (as one of my friends put it), the selection is vast, the ambience is ok, the service is tad slow. Knowing they are almost always full capacity, they should add more staff I guess.

We ordered, Chicken Lollypop (chinese style, OK), Veg Kebab (not too great), Brain Curry (I am told was ok too), Mutton Roganjosh (I liked), Tava Chicken (different taste, was good), Paneer Makhani (again average), Roti n Naan.

The best part was the mouth freshner :)

Given all this, the place is a bit on expensive side. Rs. 250/- for a pint of beer - is a little too much..

May go there, if you like an experience of fine dine with vast menu options.

“Confused @Crystal”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Its kind of funny how many restaurants have the same name in Amritsar. The same compound that houses the oldest variant of Crystal, has three others with the same name.

The restaurant is decent and does a combination of Indian and Chinese cuisine and has decent fare. The food is not out of the world but you do get most of the stuff that you would want to try in Amritsar : Kulcha, Butter Chicken,Tawa Chicken etc.

The other positive is that its one of the cleaner restaurants in Amritsar but a tad expensive too from Amritsar pricing standards.

Its not a must do place like Chawla Chicken, but its a place that you can certainly try .
