“The magic carpet ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Dr. Bhang's bhang lassi is one of the smoothest and best I've ever had. Upon one hour after consumption, the camel ride felt like a magic carpet ride and me being lifted halfway in Mid Air.

Make sure you get the correct shop- the name of the shop is now changed to "Lassi Shop" due to political reasons. There's a phony "Bhang Shop" in Fort Parking; approximately 300m from the real one. To make sure you're on the right one, go in and ask for the manager- "Dr. Bhang". Then, ask for the written reviews others have left down.

“Lassi shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 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 via mobile

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.
