Community Dining Hall
The Solar Kitchen, by far the most popular lunchtime eatery in Auroville (though open for dinner also), prepares simple vegetarian food to over 1000 lunches, of which 540 go to the schools, 200 go out by tiffins and 260 to 300 are consumed in the dining hall.
The Kitchen asks guests who intend to eat there to book in advance. If you go unannounced without a booking, you have to wait until 1 pm. After that un-booked diners are welcome.
