Tricky to locate, this small dhaba is located in a narrow lane in Shastri Market, but it’s totally worth the search. Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Yash Chopra and Rajesh Khanna are said to have eaten here. Their signature dishes include Dal makhani and Phirni, but you should totally try the Kulchas here (Aloo, Gobhi, Paneer etc).

Location | Near Telephone Exchange, Chowk Passian, Shastri Market, Near Town Hall
Meal For Two | Rs 500

Go ahead and feast away because Amritsar aaye aur kulche nahi khaye?
