Pure Veg, must visit place for authentic Punjabi Food. Served with smile and courtsey. Plenty of options in food, cooked in desi ghee and also served amply with lots of ghee. Location is little off beat but for real taste you need to take some pain too. Worth of all efforts to reach this place. This place is in middle... More

Oldest vegetarian eating place in old city of Amritsar . Walking distance from Golden temple . Food is very mush the same taste as it has been for ages and quality is excellent . Parking is a big problem . You have to walk a lot in dirty small lanes of Old town but its worth.

If you think of old Punjab days, when it used to be Tadka Dal, Sarson da Saag, Lachha Prantha, You can relish that old taste here in this Dhaba. You can not resist this taste when you visit Amritsar. Its smell is awesome, its food is Yummy.

The visit to Kesar will take you deep into the lanes of the old city and that in itself is an experience. Walk or take a e-rickshaw from the golden temple. Try the daal, the lassi and the parathas . Everything is great . Don't watch calories please

Amritsar is top on the Food Tourism locations.. Kesar Da Dhaba is top attraction for any foody in Amritsar. Access to the place is not easy, it goes through small lanes but you get good A/C or non A/C place to enjoy the amazing food.
