“Good food, bad hygiene”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Reaching Kesar da dhaba on a rickshaw is quite an experience.
Chana and Kulcha was great. Tastes great.
But we saw cockroaches near our table....and there was a rat moving around.

“The best authentic stuff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

if you really like the authentic food with lot of oil(pure ghee) then this is the place. Even if you are diet conscious then too you can always have a go. Try everything and don't forget the "PHIRNI" the great dessert in the end

“History in a Kulcha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Ignore the ambiance enjoy the dhabba atmosphere.If the guy sharing( all tables are share tables) your table is a amritsari you are in luck.Get him talking.
You won't get a better Kulcha/Paratha this side of the peshawar.
The parathas are soaked in Ghee.They melt in your mouth. Just enjoy it. Even after a very heavy meal we did not feel any discomfort or heaviness.
It's an experience ,not just dinner.Don't miss it.
