Best Food - Non Resto

Located inside the golden temple. Well organised, decent basic Indian meal and best of all, it is for everyone regardless your gender, social status, caste, etc. This is the only public free food that won't reduce any dignity of the receiver.

I was overwhelmed by the dedication of the community servers who offer voluntary services and prepare delicious food for all who visit with proper hygiene and cleanliness around. Enjoyed to serve in the kitchen to clean the utensils.

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
