Naming the best dhabas in Amritsar is a mighty task! The city offers you many vegetarian and non-vegetarian Dhabas, each serving delicious specialities. So, come treat your tastebuds to the delectable cuisines at these famous Dhabas.


  • Bhrawan da Dhaba
    This famous award winning Dhaba has been serving traditional and authentic Punjabi food since 1921. The food is prepared in pure Desi Ghee without an overload of it, hence it is light on the stomach as well as on pocket. The Dhaba offers delicious and tempting dishes and is truly a delight for foodies. Try their specialities like Cheese Tomato, Thali, Rajma Chawal and Kheer.

    The Dhaba has now become a multi cuisine restaurant but they still call it Dhaba to keep the charm intact. Gorge on rich breakfast, snacks and mouth-watering main course meals anytime from 8am to 11:30 pm on any day of the week.
    A meal would cost between INR 80 to INR 200.

  • Kesar da Dhaba
    The Dhaba was founded by Lt. Lala Kesar Mal and his wife Lt. Smt. Parvati in 1916 in Sheikhupura, Pakistan and then served only Parantha and Dal. After the partition, it shifted to Amritsar. Located by the side of the temple and just a rickshaw ride away, it now serves many delectable punjabi dishes, their speciality being Dal Tadka, Dal Makhni and Phirni. Dal Makhani is cooked overnight in Ghee, so if you find Ghee floating on top of your Daal just mix it and enjoy the rich flavour. Do try the Thali, Phirni and Gulab Jamun.
    Almost a century has passed, but the old sitting arrangement has been kept unchanged to restore its charm. What makes this Dhaba unique are the recipes which are maintained so as to keep the original flavours intact.
    Shell around INR 150 to enjoy a hearty meal.
