It was 8:30 pm we were passing nearby Jallianwala Bagh towards Golden temple with a thought to have dinner at a restaurant. On the left hand side first floor I saw a display board stating Gujrati Lodge. I was sure the room rates must be good for budget travel. Gujrati lodges and Marwari Dharamshalas are one of the best for budget/local travelers. I prefer such stays few times if lodges and dharamshalas are neat and clean specially the bathroom/toilet.
I walk inside and via stairs reached the lodge. Upon query I was told Rs. 435 per night is Non-AC room with Double Bed and Rs. 975 per night with AC Double Bed. 435 is budget stay in Amritsar. And then I saw dining space. I inquired – food?
Yes, said the person sitting at reception. Unlimited thali for Rs. 90/-. I requested for two thalis. The image shown above is a live example how good it was.Â Ghee on top of roti, Bhindi ki Sabzi, Dal, Dahi and one more vegetable along with Rice and papad, pyaaz, acharÂ of course. What else one can dream of. It was a nice unlimited thali and the best – it was straight coming from the kitchen. Hot in-short. Fantastic dinner – I whisper. Timings: 9 am – 9pm. Open for breakfast/Lunch/Dinner. Amount paid.
