Good atmosphere and rustic feel. Popular with locals. Lassis are tasty too. The food, although good was nothing overly special. Glad I went one and tried the thali but wouldn't go back. It takes some finding too. Staff are helpful.

Amazing place.... great food.... This is surely a place for all the food lovers. Amazing daal... Best lassi ever.
Only problem is the food contains a lot of oil and the place is very much crowded.

Went there with family ,its inside an old street but one must be prepared to visit this place due to authentic taste of food andnot the ambience or the location, Dal tadka we took but we ordered plain as well after looking at the first one to balance the xtra desi ghee , which worked very well and was reordered in same way, sarsoni ka saag was awsome , great parantha,of course food is extra ghee but we dont eat such food everyday , if you are in amritsar you must leave your calaorie meter at home , KESAR is really authentic punjabi really tasty food , we ate even on way back brought it decently packed just before we boarded the train to enjoy the last meal and avoided the shatabdi food as it was below average !

KESAR DHABA is really worth a visit if you go with lower expectation , dont think it is a restaurant , its old style dhaba food cooked for longer time in traditional style so taste is waht brings us here not the ambience , it was clean and everything was excellent , Keep up , mist vsit but keep expectations low , try lassi , rasmalai and everything you can and to go easy on oil just mix one dal tadka with normal dal !

maaki oti missi roti , parantha everything was awsome ,

thanks for keeping our traditional food and taste alive !!!

We'd read about this place on a food blog, recommending it for the best Ma ki Daal in town. Honestly, the daal was a bit disappointing, as it was over-salted and didn't really have any other standout flavour. The ajwain parathas we had along with it though were another story. Flaky, buttery, perfect with strong bits of ajwain here and there, they were utterly delightful. Was it really worth the long walk through filthy roads? Maybe, but more because of the people we met along the way, who were happy to direct us to our destination. I think that we could have had great food at any of the dozen other places nearby though.

I had the best traditional punjabi food ever. The maa ki daal, sarson ka saag, paneer and roti were mind blowing. People eat the traditional food in here coz dis place basically for you to taste the basic food of punjab not the high fi dishes. Have to eat in here everytime in visit amritsar. Highly recomended.
