Like everyone said this is not a restaurant and is part of the Golden Temple activities. when we visited the Golden temple, we got the opportunity to have 'Prasad' and got to see how many people are getting food at this noble service. People volunteer to cook, cut vegetables, wash dishes, serve food and clean up on a regular basis... More

It is not a restaurant but a pious place where everyone - rich or poor- eats at the same place. There are hundred of volunteers offering plates, glasses and spoons. You sit on the ground in long rows and are served the tastiest food, cooked with love and devotion. Once in a lifetime experience.

Firstly I would encourage anyone who is financially able to make a good donation. Regardless this is not expected and everyone is welcomed equally to sit down on the floor and eat together. For myself, I am white, western and with a shaved head clearly no Sikh. Nevertheless I felt very welcome and completely comfortable taking a meal at the... More

Its community kitchen not a restaurant. More than 1 lakh persons taking food there. Its not a quality food but religious feeling and feeling of taking Prasad is attraction to the place. This may be the reason we have not found any foreigner taking prasad there

To cook this, 500-700 volunteers, and that too new devotees who are visiting everyday, work dedicatedly, to do the needful, including doing the dishes. The... More

Everything moves with clockwork precision. Guru ka Langar has served the community in many ways. Women and children also participate in seva -service for mankind. Women prepare meals, and the children & men serve food to the pangat. Langar also teaches the etiquette of sitting and eating in a community where there is no differece in caste or creed ,... More

Having food in this langar is a divine feeling as you came across dedication of the Sikh community . Respect this place as feeding people is the true religion .
