First of all, this isn't a restaurant. It is part of Sikh tradition to serve those around them by participating in a common kitchen and serving all those who come to partake in the meal. Yes its free food, but its not viewed as food but as prasad (communion).

The food is exclusively vegetarian. And most importantly, it is not appreciated if you waste the food. You can ask for seconds if you want, but then gluttony isn't also taken to very kindly.

Having said all this, its one of the finest meals you can have. Its simple food. Its delicious food and nothing compares to it.

We went for breakfast as the place seemed really busy the rest of the times we visited. In the morning around 8am we didn't have to queue and went straight in. Just wash your hands, grab a plate and spoon from the guys giving them out and then make your way to sit down on one of the mats on the floor. Food was simple but tasty and it was a nice experience. I'm glad I went.

There is an office on the pool side where you turn in to the restaurant where you can give donations.

Guru ka langar, serves only Vegetarian Food. The food is simple, home-cooked style and tastes amazing. We had it as a part of our dinner. The platter was simple and items poured in systematically. The platter had Chapatis, Sweet Rice, Dal Makhni and pickle.
At a time a large number of people sit together. The experience is amazing and should not be missed.

The Guru ka Langar or the community kitchen or dining hall withing the Harmandir Sahib Premise is a amazing experience and a must visit. Food a very Simple....Delicious....gives a satiety that no where else you will get...such a blessed platter it is....very systematically arrange ...where every mins some 200+ visitors are fed....food we had Daal Chappati Sabji and Rice Kheer...which is cooked by pilgrims like us ...it is served also by various visitors at the shrine doing the sewa... Feeling Blessed.
