Without any doubt or second thoughts, the Hansraj College has the best DU Canteen.
Literally the boss, be it academics be it co-curricular or be it food, simply put tasty, fresh, hygienic at prices which everyone can afford! The most popular combo is Chocolate Frappe with Grilled Sandwich for just Rs 50. It can seat more than 150 students. Very upbeat music is played, this canteen is also bustling with people. .
