This is a institution. You will love all the food items including paratha's, dal and veggies.

Gulab Jamun is must have. Crowning glory is Phirni. i bet you will have not less than 2.

First time in Amritsar and first time in Punjab. We were looking forward to the famous Punjabi hospitality, big heartedness and love and we aren't disappointed.

Day 1 for lunch we decided to go to Kesar da dhabba. We were warmly welcomed inside and treated like royalty. The food was very rich and delicious. Laccha parathas are an absolute no miss, try them they are delicious. And the dal which is slow cooked for 12 hours and served with dollops of ghee and love. The service and hospitality there was one of the best I've seen ever.


The dish that stole the show was the phirni. It is so rich and delicious. We were stuffed with food but managed to eat 5 phirnis between the 3 of us. Don't miss this phirni.

We asked to visit the kitchen after our meal and our request was graciously accepted. We were escorted inside told the history of the place and allowed to click pictures and stay and speak to their staff as long as we wished.

This simple looking place stole our hearts and made us promise to come back again.

Kesar dhabba if you're reading this - you've got your service and good bang on. Keep serving with love and that will be your USP.

This nearly century old place has been a golden standard for good indian food over the years. During our recent visit this just got reconfirmed. The only regret is that our appetite is not big enough to taste all the goodies. The dal roti paratha were excellent.

The charm of walking through the narrow lanes is an added bonus.

An iconic little place of sorts nestled in one of the winding alleys near the Golden Temple and buzzing with eaters of all stripes (quite a few regulars)... has retained the rusty feel of a dhaba when others choose to grow big and choose to gentrify. But the food...oh... absolutely delightful... never had parathas feel and taste so good in the mouth... and those huge-sized amritsari lassis are equally curdled in frothy delight... and could fill you up all by itself.

Very good veg dhaba in Amritsar specially for Maa Ki daal and phirni. Dhaba is in narrow lanes of Amritsar one can reach by cycle rikshaw or by walking (15 mins) from golden temple. Staff is friendly. All dishes are made in desi ghee and taste yummy specially Maa ki dal. Must visit if you are visiting Amritsar.
