“Avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Went with expectation . Totally disappointed . You get better food in less known places . Poor service and basic vegetables . Owner must act and taste his own food to save the prestige . Only worth dish was Lassi . Rest all is waste of money

“Awsome food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

I would really recommend this place to everyone visiting amritsar. It is located near golden temple in near by gallies. but the food here is so tasty that it is always full. People throng this place. One can try the thalies here.

“highly overrated restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

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.

“Good, but nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

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.
