Where to Eat in Amritsar: The Best Restaurants and Bars

September 30, 2017 Venice Greaves

Amritsar is a major commercial and cultural centre in the heart of Punjab. The city is the spiritual and cultural center of the Sikh religion and is home to the Harmandir Sahib, also known as the Golden Temple. Respectfully marvel at the Indian and Pakistani soldiers who march-off nightly at the Wagha Border, and at the Jallian Wala Bagh the site of the 1919 Amritsar Massacre in 1919.

Kesar da Dhaba

Reviewed By rjsh123 - New Delhi, India

A visit to Kesar Da Dhaba through the narrow by-lanes from Katra market was worth every step.
Still maintained in its old charm, we had to really wait ( & so were many others ), the food when it was served was worth each n every bite.
We enjoyed the Gobi Parantha Thali with matar pulao and along with enjoyed the delicious sweet lassi with Makhan which was really incredible.
Finally, the lunch ended with a matka kulfi.
Not only is the food great, it’s a complete VFM.

Crystal Restaurant

In a city steeped in tradition, from its historic buildings to the commercial activities, there is only one family owned restaurant that has endured for 80 incredible, edible years. Crystal Restaurant opened its doors in Amritsar in 1935. Crystal's authentic brand of multi cuisine cooking became a staple in the city, and has continued in their tradition spanning more than three generations. Crystal has also served many beloved stars from Bollywood, sports, business and society. Today, Crystal has remained an iconic family owned and operated business, where friends regularly come to enjoy tasty sumptuous meals, celebrate a special occasion or share in a romantic evening out in our cozy, inviting restaurant & lounge. The sophisticated yet intimate ambience is just a prelude to the pleasures of the exquisite cuisine complimented by extensive and carefully selected wine cellar.

Located at queens road, I heard that the restaurant usually has a waiting. Went here for lunch and it wasn’t fully occupied. The interiors of the place are quite decent, food menu is elaborate, food tastes well too. Overall it was a good meal- the only let down was the service which could have been better - both in terms of time as well as attentiveness of the staff

The lassi was delicious. We just ordered large glasses of the lassi and were served in the car. The place was jam packed and so it was easier just have it there. The taste of the lassi was good. Freshly whipped yoghurt and just a tinge of sweetness. Wholesome, natural goodness. Must have !

Kulcha Land

Reviewed By patel536 - Brighton, United Kingdom

This place is a traditional shabby looking place but sometimes you have to wait for a table. It is a typical local place, greasy tables, no formal menus, just 5 items on the board. You just have to go with what other people are eating. It is exactly opposite Holiday Inn, The best Kulcha I have ever eaten and the most important comment ...... No we did not suffer from Delhi Belly !!!!! Thanks to the local guide for taking us to this place.

Bharawan Da Dhaba

Reviewed By Khushbu M

Another legendary Dhaba of Amritsar. This one is located in the Harmindar Sahib complex itself,thus easily accessible. This place is been renovated I guess, so looks more like a restaurant than a dhaba. It's a huge restaurant,lots of Seating space. Staff looked attentive. We weren't hungry so didn't order food, just had d phirni. It was amazing,out of this world. Creamy,kesari delight. So if ur just roaming around in d complex, do stop here for d phirni.

Giani Tea Stall

Reviewed By TrotGlobe - Singapore, Singapore

Went there for morning tea and light breakfast after early morning visit to Golden Temple. It's a non-descript place but highly frequented. We ordered tea, butter toast and kachori. Kachori was different but lacked taste. Nothing great about other stuff.
Expensive for the venue and experience...May not visit again.

Brother's Amritsari Dhaba

Reviewed By Randy H - Grande Prairie, Canada

We visited 3 of Amritsar‘s higher rated Dhaba places while we were there.
Of the 3 Brother’s Amritsari was the one I liked the least. (I rated the other 2 if you’re interested)
The food was pretty good. I liked that they offered mini-meals. They’re basically small thalis. The paneer butter masala was nice. We ordered the “Just Cheese” naan for our daughter, who doesn’t like spicy food, but it was not as advertised and came spicy.
The service was pretty good as well.
It’s a good place to go. You’ll get a great meal, but the others we visited were just a little bit better.
