“Lassi shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Look for the small shop to the right of the main fort entrance. Like others said this is now called "Lassi shop". This is the original shop and the one you may have seen on documentaries. Now someone else has payed more money for the title of "government approved" so they can't put that on the sign but its all good, the other shop has been making people sick.

I tried the lassi and took some cookies... they hit the spot... but take it easy because it is strong!

“The one and only”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

It's one the best kept secrets (or may be not anymore...thanks to the zillions of travel shows)...the one and only Licensed place to get Bhang....had to search a bit for it...and don't fall for the "private" shops...there is only ONE governement approved and managed shop...near the bike/car parking area...ENJOY..but with restraint :-P

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We were 4 people who rarely drank bhang lassis before. In the bhang shop, which was the gov. legalized one, we drank one strong cold coffee and one light lassi. We shared one for two. After 2 hours we started feeling terribly bad. The owner of our hotel told us that the owner of the bhang shop changed lately. I don't recommend this place at all. We even hat to cancel our camel safari on the next day, because also on the next morning we felt terrible.

“Dr Bhang!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

After visiting the other Bhang shop (the one with the official government sign) which turned out to be the wrong shop and not the one with all the great reviews - we stumbled across dr bhangs lassi shop and we were not disappointed!

Dr bhang was lovely to talk to, told us lots of funny stories and about his family history in the bhang trade - very interesting!

We bought some cookies and some memorabilia, we will definitely visit dr bhang again before we leave jaisalmer.

Great place to visit to chill out, an excellent experience in Jaisalmer.

“Gourmet Approved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

It has great drinks. I had a Bhang Lassi. I liked it very much, but it was a bit strong for me. I've never had it before so it was a great experience to try one.
