“very rich and heavy”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Too heavy for health. Too rich. Though good in taste but the pouring ghee overtakes the taste. Avoid the dessert

“Great food - Must eat place”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

The restaurant is in the small lanes of the old market. The kitchen outside is nice to see. The food is great. The service was great too. Very authentic food and place. Enjoyed the makki ka roti, latcha paratha, sarson ka saag & deserts ( phirni, warm gulab jamun & rasmalai).

“Finger licking punjabi food”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Pl check which dhaba u go to, all have similar names and there's just one really authentic kesar a dhaba. The aloo paratha, lassi are def worth trying out.
Very simple seating, no fuss. Basic cleanliness maintained.

“Completes Amritsar”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

They say that if you have not eaten at Kesar da Dhaba you have not eaten in Amritsar. It is a MUST do if you visit Amritsar and surely a must do after the visit to the Golden Temple. The walk from the temple amongst the lovely alleys is a treat too! They love their ghee (none Indian's read that as lots and lots of oil) so be prepared!
