“Authentic Amritsari Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Authentic Amritsar Food, we ordered Special Amritsari "Culche" it was served with "Chole". The food was excellent. Highly recommended.
Tip: Do not order south Indian food or any thing else except the "Punjabi" food at the place for a true Amritsari experience.

“Virsa is heritage, but this is recreated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

The place has potential and definitely a labour of love. But experientially a lot seems missing. The manufactured dry well, the unhealthy dirty colts, the fidgety lovebirds and the private boozers segregated in multiple pools do not inspire comfort in an otherwise place of cultural kitch.

Are you sure you reviewed for the correct place?? We don't have a "Dry well", and what are the "unhealthy dirty colts" that you mentioned?? As for the "private boozers", alcohol is neither served or permitted as per law....
I would request you to please review your 'review' as there are many other restaurants in the area.

Regards

“Must visit in Amritsar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

During our week long stay in Northern India, we thought that we had enough of typical punjabi food i.e. Kulche 'n' Parathen etc. So we resolved to have some different food like South Indian food. In Amritsar, there are not many eateries offering south Indian delicacies. But we were lucky to find Restaurant Virsa where we ful-filled the urge of our tongues to have south indian food i.e. dosas and Idly. The location is right near to the entrance to Jallianwala bagh. Ambience is fine. Restaurant is well furnished. Food will certainly not disappoint any body.
