One of the most famous dhaba's in Amritsar, located in the inside lanes. Hence, we had to take a man riksha to go there. At whatever time we go, there is always a rush & have to wait to get any sitting. Actually, I found the food average & I don't think I am keen to go there on my... More

An excellent joint for delicious Punjabi Food, a must visit for all those visiting Amritsar, quite pocket friendly and offers good variety. They can improve ambience but may lose their traditional look of Dhaba.

Dieters and Poor Eaters need to miss this place.With lots and lots of Butter and Ghee and Traditional Pure Punjabi Recepie combined with the Ever smiling waiters compensates for the ordinary ambience.I found the Kulchas the best in the world and the Lassi was Just Fantastic.Prices are reasonable for us City dwellers

Have mixed feelings about the place. Most of the food items tasted good. However menu is limited. Whatever we ordered initially, all were unavailable and we were forced to eat the items we didn't intend to. Few gravies are a bit spicy and oily. Overall, an okay place to try Punjabi cuisines once. But based on all the positive reviews... More

The place is in shambles but the food is good. Don't order too much coz the food is loaded with desi ghee you won't be able to have much. Try the plain prantha with dal tadka. You might spot a rat inside the restaurant. The service is quick and deserts are also good.

Thank Parul B
