“Authentic at No. 312”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Like most successful Indian businesss, Lassiwala too has its share of imitators in its immediate purlieu -with exactly the same name but varying tastes and quality. Thanks to an elder of the city I knew, Shop no. 312, MI Road is the real deal. There are about 5 more lassiwalas within the next 15 meters, and the real deal-breaker is that they are all snack bars, only No. 312 makes and sells Lassi, only Lassi.

Coming to the most important part, the taste. It really is heavenly! The curd and sugar are mixed in a balanced proportion such that no ingredient overrides the other. I don't think making lassi can ever be a part of NASA's program, but yes, the balance of mixing the 2 ingredients for ideal time is critical to get the prefect blend, and these guys look like they have achieved that!

PS: If you look closely, each one of the 5 people sitting there look relaxed and content with what they are doing. Management mantra for success?!

“Very fresh lassi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We very much liked the fresh lassi in the clay pots. It's nothing more than a hole in the wall, but very clean and friendly and not expensive

“Good Lassi, but definitely not worth hunting for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Oh I almost lamented on probably missing out on the famous Lassiwala of Jaipur, especially after reading so many great reviews on TA. Especially as we were on the MI road, where they are located, almost every day.

On the last day I managed to locate THE Lassiwala. As there are atleast 6-7 on the same road. I am hoping this is the actual guy, he is located right opposite the Natraj Veg Restaurant on MI Road. Look for the Black board with Lassiwala written in silver. Also says since in 1944.

About the actual Lassi drinking experience, probably thanks to the high expectation I went with, the Lassi with a thick coat of cream was bit of a let down. As I recollect having tasted better on in Punjab. So it made me wonder why people were going so gaga about this humble but refreshing drink. Again the Lassi was good and tasty, however according to me not worth hunting for the shop and spending time specifically on.

“Superwala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Simple simple simple....no pretentions no variety just one type of fresh fresh lassi..
Not those thick lassis that r set in glasses and become thick as they rest...the lassi here is prepared as soon as u order..one guy measures out the curd the other churns it with sugar the third pours it in a earthen glass (2 sizes) and tips it with malai(cream)...
Be warned the larger glass is about 400gms...
Have 2 & u won't need a meal for the day...

“Don't go with much hyped brand”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I had read so many reviews about Lassiwala's in jaipur and thought of trying it. After reaching M I Road, we discovered that every lassiwala claims to be the original one but ultimately they all are same. As i stayed there for 5 days, I tried lassi at 3 different places and all were of same taste. They serve lassi in Kulhad and thats the USP. I have been a lassi lover hence had tried lassi of different cities. The kind of lassi you get in Amritsar or Bhopal, you cant find it here in Jaipur. Lassiwala has now become a brand for foreigners but it did not make any difference to me.
