“They have had to change their name due to not getting the licence to call it the "govt officail" one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I don't usually go for this sort or activity at home but my fiends are no stranger to it so I went along with it all and ordered a medium banana lassi. No effect. Went for the strong one, great times all round. The guy (only known as Dr. Bhang) who owned the shop explained how another shop in town had bought the rights for the govt. bhang shop title so they had changed it to Lassi shop. Also sold cookies which were good, but unlike the lassi weren't very tasty but were as potent. Also he was invaualbe when one of our group walked off and couldn't find his way back the Dr, who sees all pointed him in our direction. It's open from around 9am to 11pm so you can get a good sesh in.

Loved the family that run the place.
Bhang is good quality and certainly does the trick....go for a super strong and walk around the town......memorable! This place is the ORIGINAL BHANG SHOP!

“Big no no”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Scary! Greasy man trying to tout you in. Offers "massage" -yeah right- as if you wanted him to spike your drink after that...

“Find the right one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Awesome place! Really friendly staff, lots of flavor choices, good business practices (concern for your well-being and having a positive experience), and great prices compared to elsewhere in India (about $2-3 per drink). Ask about the cookies!

***To find this place-the actual original-it is located right near the entrance of the fort. There is another with the same name around the other side of the fort which serves these lassis, but I heard that they do not have the same quality/standards and concern for customers.
