I had heard about the place last time i visited Amritsar but couldnt visit. This time however, we went out for lunch. The aloo parathas and lassi were the standout options for me If you are diet conscious, it serves almost everything with over the top Ghee or butter (but thats how Punjabis do it anyway) Worth a visit if...

If you are in Amritsar and want to have a delicious food, this is a place to be. The place is not like a modern restros but a very basic place to sit. Food is filled with butter and Ghee and little spicy, but definitely not going to create and health issues. Tip: Don't wait for anyone to come and... More

Our Hotel suggested this place; quite impressive as witnesses continuous inflow of customers. Most delicious Parantha thali - paranthas were these big that are enough of two people. Ordered sweet lassi; Served in huge glasses topped with malai and nuts and a spoon given to eat that is worth a try, really the best one I have ever had.

Food is good - try the stuffed paranthas, phirni and chole. Portions are huge. You can ask any rickshaw puller and they can drop you here.

While in Amritsar do visit the place to have delicious Dal fry and plain paratha which will leave you yearning for more.End the meal with Phirni ..just the right consistancy at the right temperature and sweetness. No wonder despite the mind boggling location...people find their way to the place.

Very very yummy lacha paradha with dal makhni shahee paneer.paradhas were really crispy full of desi ghee.one should definitely visit this place if in Amritsar.purely vegetarian place.Do try lassi n phirni it's totally out of this world. But is in very narrow street n sitting arrangement is also not impressive n comfortable.there is a need to change the ambiance
