Undoubtedly the best experience. Hundreds of devotees eat together under the same roof. The food is hygienically prepared and extremely delicious. The hall is kept extremely neat and clean and cleaned after a set of people finish eating and get up. The langar is eaten sitting on the floor and utensils are to be picked up by self after partaking... More

If you have not tasted the guru ka Prasad at guru ka lungar, your visit is not complete. Large scale cooking of lungar and tasty and delicious food cannot be seen anywhere in the world. It is unique experience.

The setup here always leaves one awe struck. About 100000-150000 people eat a free meal every day. It is open 24x7. Roti, dal, kadi and kheer is what we were given. Delicious. And used dishes are cleaned in a four step process. All of this can be seen close to the eating area. Volunteers serve food and do the cleaning... More

My submission would be that one had to go to feel it, its just not about food which is offered here,but amount of love, care, and equality. Best part is to seeing everything happening there, There are people who is serving from heart & core. We went to celebrate new year and I believe there could have nothing better then... More

Must have a taste of the Guru Ji's langar. Simple food and even a small quantity satisfy the soul. Though you need to have patience to wait for 10-15 minutes for your turn to come. Overall you can be free in 45 min to 1 hour.

first of all, i would like to share that its not a restaurant..i dont how someone started this thread here in the category of the restaurant.. as the "langar" is the term used in the Sikh religion for the common kitchen/canteen where food is served in a Gurudwara to all the visitors (without distinction of background) for free.

Situated inside the golden temple. I think around 75000 people are fed here every day for free. The food was also delicious. Dahl, rotis and rice pudding!
