“Awesome FOOD !”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

I am a big time Foodie ! Love to eat different cuisine and variety of food. I traveled to Amritsar for 3 things , 1. Golden temple , 2. Wagha border and 3. FOOD !

Kesar Ka Dhaba ! I read about it a lot and hence went to the place , The cycle rickshaw ride till the restaurant was exciting and we loved it. It's a typical Indian restaurant no frills , no show off. The food is very very tasty. I loved the Palak Paneer , Dal Makhni and the lassi ! everything is prepared in GHEE (I love it) and lots of ghee. All the calorie continuous people need to forget everything for 1 day and should enjoy this food.

I loved the food and will always come here whenever I am in Amritsar or around. This is once of the places which still serve authentic Indian (punjabi) food and guys I loved it.

“Food to die for...”
Reviewed October 28, 2010

Awesome food...everything's good....daal, subzi, paneer....especially the stuffed parathas (they have like million things in it)....not to be missed....They have separate A/C section for families but do take time to look at the kitchen...the place gives us a sense of how food was (and still is) cooked back in the days...

“Great meal”
Reviewed March 27, 2010

This place is like a hidden treasure...one really has to go through the bylanes of Amritsar to reach it. Also, this place is meant only for those people for whom a clean, simple and small restaurant is a good place to eat. Those looking for 5 star surroundings please avoid it.

The visit is worth it, especially for those looking for a heavy Indian meal in pure ghee. Do not miss this place if you are a lover of Punjabi Food.

“An experience to remember.”
Reviewed December 14, 2009

I have been to this place about a hundred times and every time the experience is as good as the first. The typical Thali is amazing and total value for money. You get 2 types of lentils, 1 type of curd 'raita', 1 katori of salad and 2 Paranthas LADLED with Desi Ghee. You can alway order for extra vegetable dishes like Bhartha, Kardi, Palak Paneer etc.

To add to this extra ordinary dining experience, you can always end with local deserts. There is a choice between the Tender and Hot 'Gulab Jamun' (excellent choice for winters), the cool 'Firni' and the Rich & Chilled 'Kulfi' that can be had throughout the year.

The ambiance is very 'Desi', do not expect a five star or restaurant type environment. The service is quick & prompt. If you do not want the second Prantha to get cold by the time you finish the first, you can always ask the waiters to get it one-by-one.

the restaurant is in the heart of the city, so i would advise you to take a rickshaw. going by car will only increse your hassels of parking and walking a bit.
The dhaba is packed on the weekends, so you might have to wait for a while, but the wait is totally worth it. I hope you enjoy the experience and the food as well.
