Hi i visited Amritsar in the last week of Dec 2013. As i had read a lot about kesar the dahaba ,i went there for a dinner one night with my family. what i experienced was nothing but a below average food and a worse service. instead of going for thali, i decided of ordering my own food.
quite a few of the items on the menu were not available and the ones i got were worse than any standard bangalore hotel serves. tried malia kofta and shai paneer both were horrendous with excess salt in one of them. even basic rice was not basmati but some cheap quality instead.
I had better maa ki dal in other restaurants in Amritsar than here. in summary one should avoid such poor quality restaurants and better go for any other average ones at Amritsar.

Had heard a lot about Kesar, so had to go there. Maybe the built up expectations were too high. Reaching here itself is a task, so it had to be that good to make up for it.The paranthas were tasty, but dal was ok. I guess with so much ghee, any dish could turn out good. The service was a letdown tough.
To cut things short, I would not visit again for food, when in Amritsar.

Was a bit skeptic about this place at first, however, took a cycle rickshaw and navigated through the myriad narrow lanes of Amritsar to reach here and were amazed with the maa ki daal topped with ghee, special chana, chopar chapati thali, Alu paranthe thali and topped it off with half liter of lip smacking lassi! Did not have space for Firni after the heavy dinner!

Whenever we visit Amritsar, there has to be one visit to Kesar da dhaba, and I can bet if you go there once, you will long for the food...infact I am doing right now while writing this review from Mumbai !!

The best thing to order is -- Dal, Alu Gobi and Lachcha Paratha....Top it up with Lassi (maybe 2!) and it will be one of the bestest (adding est to best on purpose) experience....

MUST MUST MUST visit once...
