The restaurant was recommended by the Hotel Manager at The Himalayan. It’s located at Old Manali and by the river. It has indoor and outdoor sitting. The food had been the best in Manali that we went there 2 out of 3 nights and regretted...not going there again on the 3rd night. It serves Indian, local and abit of pan mix food. The juiciest chicken tikka and if you like fish I would highly reccomend their local trout in butter and lemon. You can eat here without any worries about the food. Highly recommended place. Just have your meals here.More

Before reviewing about this pathetic place, I am rather disappointed by the dubious rating given by TripAdvisor. I personally always trusted their opinion to get a clarity about a place, but with time I think their standards have gone down drastically. Now coming to this...restaurant, I would advice anyone who is looking forward to visit it..." Please please don't even think about it" The essence of any good restaurant..." Good food".." tranquil ambience ".." courteous staff".." prompt service "...the restaurant failed in all these departments . I went there with my wife and 2 kids on 6th June 2023. On entering we found the indoor section partially occupied...with few places still vacant, but the manager who was standing there never even bothered to help us .So we tried to find a comfortable table ourselves, which we found outside in their lawn area ( whatever it was) The place was dimly lit with saggy chairs and invaded by mosquitoes. It was drizzling a bit, but they had not arranged anything as such.. Still we decided to ignore everything and just when we were about to settle down...one of their staff came to us and with lot of arrogance and rudeness says " Ek baar baithne ke baad aaplog table change nahi kar sakte" Seriously??...is he for real? TripAdvisor has rated this place among the Top 10 restaurants in Manali. What's their criteria of rating any place? First of all...we didn't make a fuss about anything and secondly we never complained about the table we got. So is this supposed to be the first thing I would expect a staff to say at any restuarant?? So so disappointed...More

Lazy Dog Manali. Such an attractive name with a really good interior and the restaurant goes into the premium class isn't it? When you are coming to Manali and searching for food options, there will be hardly any page of Manali that will not include...this place.i also made my itinerary before leaving on my trip, old Manali was just a one day stop. And Lazy Dog was definitely a part of my itinerary. I went there today for dinner, just coming back and seriously found it a lot of hype. I ordered their special lazy dog chicken pasta in mushroom sauce and chicken kimbap roll. The interior live music location and the crowd was really good. But food, a big no. Pasta had some hard chicken parts, which were not supposed to be there as in the pasta or other such dishes , it's always chicken parts are boneless , so hard chicken parts were something unexpected. But I didn't complain about this. I was trying to understand what that small hard particle was, and it was left over of chicken cartilage part of chicken thigh or other bones. 2nd it was chicken kimbap rolls. Ohh my god what was that? The seaweed was so sticky that it was difficult to eat the roll properly, the inner filling had no taste, it was chicken boiled or steamed, zucchini, rice and carrot. There was no taste in kimbap rolls and it was a waste of money. I told the staff about the super sticky ness of seaweed and told him that it's not how seaweed tastes, waiter took the plate to the kitchen and came back after a few minutes and asked me to try again, and it was worse after that. I asked for the bill leaving the food on the plate and left, expecting apologies at least for having no taste in kimbap but nobody came for even that. I paid the bill and left the place with never to include this cafe on my list. On the way my husband asked me to write a review this time. He always asks me to avoid writing reviews but this time he asked me as he said nobody else should go with these much expectations to that cafe. My kid wanted to eat pizza which to my surprise was not available in Lazy dog, so we had to go to another place for that. I understand that some food items may be good, but I tried two and they were not good. If for all I will give 5/5 points to the cafe, I will give 2/5 for food, that is below average and no point for service , I was expecting atleast a small sorry for those rolls for which I complained.More

Visited in March 23 after seeing reviews online and offline but it’s not what you expect The food is quiet bland which is was acceptable to a certain extent but the server was very rude We were served by Mr Gagan Staff here is cold...and rude. As it was cold outside we requested them to shift us inside within 15 mins of ordering food but to our surprise they refused even when half of tables inside were empty. And when we said that we will take away the our order to our surprise he had packed the wrong food and debated that he was rightMore

The ambience of the cafe was too good. After a long bike ride we went to the cafe and were welcomed with a live performance by solo performer. The song, the food and the ambience were too good. It took is quite sometime to get...moving even though we had completed our meals 😂 The café had a good indoor and outdoor seating. There is a fireplace at the outdoor area and both the indoor and outdoor seating areas provide a good view of the river Manaslu flowing next to the café. The food was quite good and there are too many options to choose from as well. Food - 5/5 Hygiene - 5/5 Location - 5/5More
