I had a wonderful evening with my family at this cafe. We were lucky to experience a new group's live jam session. The food, the drinks were very nice. I will go there again whenever I am in Manali next.

The place is nice but on the expensive side. The food portions are small and not delicious at all. If there is a live band then the sound is too high and it is difficult to communicate. Try to reserve tables as it gets busy...in the evenings.More

I discovered this cafe by fluke and was pleasantly surprised. This place really throbs with energy, vivaciousness and zest.The music brings the entire place to life. Cheers to artist Raj (lead singer) and his team! My family and I were mesmerized by this group of...talented boys. The food was awesome (we ordered Indian) and so was the ambiance. Other striking feature of this place was its hospitality. Pleasant staff and employees and i think it certainly percolates from higher management i.e., the owner of the property Ram (special mention and thanks to him for going out of his way to drop us back to our hotel). This place is good for all age groups, family, couples, friends who simply wish to have fantastic meal time. I encourage all the travelers to visit this place and experience its vibe.More
