What To Order?
If being in Punjab makes you crave those stereotypical Punjabi delights, you’ve come to the right place.

The board menu hung on the wall to reconfirm those iconic dishes that we have always heard of. If given me a chance, I would nother bother browsing the menu and rather ask Panditji to serve me the best dishes and sit back and enjoy the scrumptious meal. That’s what everyone should do when you visit an iconic eatery like Kesar da Dhaba.
The Famous Thali
Kesar da Dhaba stands out apart due to the enormous thali that this place has to offer. All the dishes at Kesar da Dhaba are made using desi ghee, so you can be certain that it’s going to be a rich and greasy affair. A big appetite is a must, so skip your breakfast and stick to devouring the thali all by yourself. The Thali at Kesar da Dhaba is served in a big plate with portions of the iconic Dal Makhani, Malai Kofta Curry, Punjabi Chole, Cucumber Raita, Salad and Laccha Paratha. The Dal Makhani is delightfully creamy and the creaminess isn’t because of excessive dollops of desi ghee but letting the lentils slow cook to beautifully bring together the flavours. You can enjoy the dal with crispy and flaky Laccha Paratha, smeared with ghee. The Malai Kofta is delicate and crumbly, teaming well with the curd-based gravy while the Punjabi Chole is home-style and we see many customers go for second helpings of it.
And It Doesn’t End Here
If this wasn’t enough, or simply because you want to eat something sweet, don’t leave without tasting their phirni. This creamy delicacy is served in earthen pots and will leave you asking for more. Watch Kesar Da Dhaba review video On Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66U2Ccof5Pw
