Student verdict

What do you like about the place?
“The Ramjas cafeteria is known for its spaciousness. It’s the biggest in the entire north campus. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food is available. One can get fried chicken leg piece for Rs. 30,” says a botany student. Though there is no plan to renovate the cafeteria, students want a Nescafe stall to be added

Do you get your lunch from home? If yes, what?
“We get our tiffin from home. I prefer bringing paranthas, macaroni, sandwiches, butter toasts, fried rice, roti sabzi, etc. This is usually the best way one could save money. Moreover, home food is healthier and more nutritious compared to the cafeteria food any day,” says Bharti Rautela, a botany student

If you’re eating in the canteen, what do you expect to be served?
“We have both vegetarian and non-vegetarian thalis which have chapati, rice, vegetable, dal, raita and salad. Enough of quality and quantity is there available for Rs. 30. The vegetarian thali has paneer which is substituted with chicken in the non-vegetarian thali,” says Nilza Angmo, a botany student

Are you happy with the canteen food?
“I don’t think there is much nutrition in the cafeteria food but it is filling. It is definitely value for money. The Chinese items are usually oily. The juice corner provides fresh fruit juice,” says Rathore

The best thing you like about the college cafeteria?
“One thing about the Ramjas cafeteria is that you can eat anywhere you wish to. Apart from the ground floor cafeteria, we also have the second and the third floors,” says Rautela

Straight from the students’ union

Is there any person in charge of the cafeteria? Does the institute monitor what is being served?
“Yes, there are cafeteria committee members who are concerned about the things being served in the cafeteria, related to quality, price, quantity and cleanliness. The committee is open to all kind of suggestions and any sort of complain is very well addressed to. The issues raise are being looked upon and sorted,” says Sabahat Jahan, treasurer, Students’ Union, Ramjas (2011-12)

Are the students offered food of high nutritional value?
“Handling of food is hygienic. The committee conducts surprise visits to the kitchen. The complaint cell is active. The committee members are also concerned about the nutritional value of the food and hence have assisted in bringing a lot of fresh fruit juices and healthy wholesome food like upma,” says Jahan

Any changes likely in the current menu list?
“A lot of changes have been implemented in concern with our principal. Our idea is to give the best nutrients and hence we have added food items which are nutritionally-enriched like pizzas with lots of vegetable toppings, lassi and macaroni blended with lots of vegetables,” says Praveen Singh, president, Student’s Union (2011-12)

Any plans to upgrade the food quality?
Food quality is kept in mind by the students’ council. “As already mentioned about the complaint cell being active, our motto is to increase and improve the quality along with the quantity. Being a union member, I can say that we are more concerned about the hygienic and cleanliness factor,” says Singh

What we liked about this place
The furniture is in good shape in the entire cafeteria. The seating capacity is more than 200 students. The air-conditioned floor has modern furniture and so does the top floor. The ambience is very calm and soothing. An overall view of the college can be taken from the top floor of the cafeteria. It feels relaxed when one tends to sit in the open air cafeteria

Saaf safai
The cleaning staff really cooperates in maintaining cleanliness in and around the cafeteria. The utensils are nicely washed and wiped. The premises remain clean during the morning but get a little dirty by the evening
