Amritsar is a vegetarians’ paradise with so many food joints everywhere. But it’s the Kesar Dhaba that stands out for us. The journey (mostly on a Rickshaw) through the small streets and high buildings to the Dhaba is memorable. We would recommend Dal and Laccha Parantha, a THALI though would be your best bet. The calorie conscious would have to take a break here as each order has loads of desi ghee!Do not fill yourself too much as a glass of LASSI after the meal is essential. You can also have a look at the kitchen. The place gives a sense of how food was cooked back in the days in huge utensils. Dal that they serve is cooked for many hours before it reaches the plate.

What an experience for a die hard foodie. Can't be described in words, it needs to be experienced. The approach is not the best as in any city old parts. Once there and having dug into the 1st bite everything else is forgotten. Love going there every time I am in the city

The place is good. it suits the average common man. the food is not highly priced. it is a mixture of taste. The food was tasty and was served in good quantities. Its worth visiting the restaurant whenever you visit Amritsar.

Located in a congested street as mmost of places in Amritsar are.
I have been to this place many times but never able to finish 2nd parantha! Even during my recent visit it was the case.
True is that the place is not hygenic and so are the servers. There is a air-conditioned room on opposite side but whe we went there some staff people were resting on seats and one was had even his shoes on table... so we moved out to regular side.
Food is very heavy but delicious. Firni is a must try.

I wouldnt mind paying little more if the place and its staff becomes more cleaner!
