It is dirty to the core with thousands of flies all over. Floor dirty and food real bad. I will not recommend this place at all. You want to have upset stomach please please go here.

We had heard a lot about this place and were told not to miss this place for lunch. But we found the food quality to be middling and definitely not equal to the reputation. Overall a disappointing experience

If there is one thing I've learnt during the course of several (work related) visits to Amritsar, it's that the people over there really enjoy food! So when one asks around for the definitive food experience and is overwhelmingly pointed to one destination "Bharwan da Dhaba", I'd say that it has to be a 'must try'.

Set at the edge of the chowk next to the Town Hall, in a fairly large, well lit, reasonably clean looking hall with simple furniture, Bharwan da Dhaba passes my primary test (appears hygienic enough). The attendant was quick to appear and take our orders from a rather limited vegetarian menu and equally quick to deliver the Amritsari aloo kulcha with channa and lassi and a side order of maa ki dal. Of course it was loaded desi ghee and butter, but thankfully less than I had expected and simply put, the food was fresh, well-balanced and very tasty! Initially appearing deceptively little in quantity, beware - it is a rather heavy meal!!
Although perhaps inspired by fast food take aways, the menu has diversified to include dosa, some sort of chinese and even a vegatable burger (with Coke!)!! I'd suggest you stick to the restaurant specials - kulcha, maa ki dal, channa and baingan ka bharta (didn't try this)

Sure, it's not the epitome of gourmet Indian cuisine, but definitely an excellent dhaba and when in Amritsar, worth a visit.
(Tip: The area, which is also close to the Golden Temple, seemed far less crowded in the evening than during the day. Kulchas however are meant to be breakfast fare! Personally however, I don't see how anyone can begin the day with such a heavy meal... :-))

I'm not sure of the history but am told that the original Bharawan da dhaba was divided into two, each owned by a brother. So there are two now, the other one being called Brother's dhaba. But having had a meal in each, I can recommend Bharawan over Brother's anyday.

The fare is entirely vegetarian with stress on local Amritsari cuisine. Once in this city, we had to order Kulche and lassi and both did not disappoint. Ordered Dal makhni for main course and it was again top-notch.

In a nut shell, this place is must visit in Amritsar. Follow your nose once you leave Golden Temple, Bharawan is not more than 2 minute walk away.

We trekked to this place after a visit to the Golden temple and frankly one found it trifle dissapointing. The small tables are set against each other and although one gets own table, it feels like one is in a community tiffin. The food is delicious but dripping in desi ghee. Everything yummy and deep fried:) Leave your calorie counter behind.
