Fish is their speciality. But ain't worth if you have tasted them in Delhi.. For the 1st timer a good to try. Liquour served at rock bottom prices. Don't have to carry your alcohol.

We got into this place for lunch. First of all it was during the demonitization time in india n such a well established place we expected them to accept Credit card payment but they it accept only cash.

What else is there to say. Went all the way there (a half hour trip) based on glowing reviews i read. The food was alright at best. Cldve gotten the same quality in the area I was staying in. Service was blah. I speak Punjabi but couldn't understand them for some reason. And they couldn't understand us. And no one... More

This is one of the places to come if you are on a food tour in Amritsar and like having non veg food. Had visited this place with a group of friends just for their fried fish and have to say that it's the best that I have tasted till date.

The restaurant very basic to say the least and has sparse seating arrangements. Residents use the outlet more from a take away perspective, but you have to remember its Amritsar, the land of milk and honey, food is about freshest, purest ingredients, fantastic taste, if you are looking for ambiance you best remain in Mumbai or Delhi.The Amritsari fish is...

Our Taxicab driver took us to some great Punjabi tandoor and grill place. We had grilled items (Tandoor Chicken and Fish) - they both were excellent and awesome - will come back again when in amritsar

This is one such place that everyone will recommend you to visit for the Amritsari Fish when in Amritsar, but the most non customer friendly place! The attitude of the waiters & the other staff is pathetic. We visited the restaurant with our toddler & thus requested them for a sofa seating. All except one were already taken & that... More

I have heard a lot about Makhan fish, it was on top of my must visit place In Amritsar. But I was fairly disappointed by fish which was overly priced and moreover it Avg in taste as well.

This is small dhaba type place selling fried Fish very famous among locals. The price is on higher side. The quality of fish prepared and served is out of the world. During you won't get fish if you go after 2030 h.
