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.

visited on 02 Jan 14 for lunch. had the so called mutton dum biryani and amritsari fish. biryani was soaked in oil and could never relate to any dum biryani so far had. it was like basmati rice mixed in mutton gravy and mixed with loads of butter. its better to avoid. amtisari fish was great but too costly for four medium sized pieces at rs 520 + taxes. they loot the customers badly. they charged rs 150/- for a bowl of plain curd, which is ridiculous. only plus point is the ambience.

Oh god in Amritsar any place is good for food. Another good one is Crystal restaurant situated on Queens road. Must try is tandoori chicken, Tawa frontier chicken, tutty frutty ice cream. Food is so yummy. OMG !!! Still drooling :)

Visited the ground floor which is the real restaurant, the first floor is a party lounge. Be warned the ground floor serves only beer, which is such a waste. But I asked if I could get my own little bottle of whisky, to which they agreed. I had the chicken roulade starter (called the murgh surkh e angaar). Then the grilled fish with basil, mash potato and champagne cream. I didn't know that mash potato could taste so good with fish, usually associate fish with chips but this was amazing with the great sauce. Finally the sizzling brownie, which was alright except they topped it with peanuts! They should do walnuts instead!! Perhaps the best eating joint in Amritsar.

There are two restos called Crystal. We visited the ground floor. The other one is above it.

We had the Amritsari fish which wasn't called that on the menu but we were told that's what it was along with a butter chicken, rice and naan. Food was delicious and service very good. We also had the sizzling chocolate brownie which was excellent.

It was a bit expensive but we knew it was going to be and it was a really nice meal. We went early when there weren't many people there. Go later for more atmosphere I presume.

Make sure you find the correct part of this restaurant, which is situated on the ground floor (there is another place upstairs).
This was a very busy restaurant with lots of locals eating there, and we were warned to book in advance, which was necessary!
A great menu and service was excellent. Food was fantastic and they even went out and bought us a bottle of local wine (quite expensive, but well worth it!).
