The worst restaurant in Manali I have been too.Food tasteless not even fresh, service very very very late and hospitality they don't know what is it. I went to this place after seeing it in Ronnie & Barty show.I thought Rohan Thakur would have advised...good places in Manali,but I after visiting this place I am so disappointed.Staff is least bothered about anything they don't care how is food how is the service.Even owner Anubhav Gurung is least borthered about it that's why there is no manager to whom you can even complaint.It was wastage of money. Really disappointed with Rohan Thakur advise really eat place in the show soul trails.More

We got to know via trip advisor and experience was one of its kind, food preparation took sometime but taste was worth the wait.. We had mutton shammi kabab, butter chicken, methi chicken and bhindi masala with fulka roti for main course The dessert was...consumed with rich homemade ice cream flavours of toffee and strawberry both yummylicious, chocolate cake...we couldn’t stop so added chocolate mouseMore

What got me inside this place were the stunning flowers that are at the entrance . The gorgeous garden continues inside and then you order the food. That's it. You are hooked. The owners, Rati aunty, the credit of the phenomenal flowers is all hers,...Anubhav, the chef behind the cafe itself. The food, the layout, the ambience... its all fantastic. There is nothing on their menu that has been less than delicious... The family is delightful themselves. The place is PET FRIENDLY and I travel with my dog so its ideal with the lawns and open spaces. The Gurung family also runs a quaint little cottage stay down the road and you can avail of a fabulous breakfast too. Away from the madness of Manali and off the beaten track, this place is my absolute favourite.More

A must visit in Manali! tucked in a shy corner, this was a delight...great place to unwind, enjoy the natural beauty of Manali, home-grown ingredients make the food even more personalised, the owner’s pets will keep you entertained...tough to decide if it’s a cafe or...a botanical treat :)More

Cafe sit-out faces snow-capped hills which is just outstanding. Food is good, homely taste with lesser oil and spice (you need to inform the serving staff upfront). Non-Indian food is good as well. However, there is still some scope of improvement in the following areas....Hopefully, the cafe owners takes care of them: 1. Breakfast is mostly Indian style with options of poha, poori/sabzi, idli/sambhar that varies on daily basis, which does not taste as great as the other à la carte menu items. Although cafe has limited options of bread, omelette, boiled eggs and cereals. 2. Tea/coffee/milk tastes extremely diluted (more of water less of milk). 3. Cereals are only corn flakes with no Muesli options at all. 4. Bread could be bit fresh (I understand that getting daily fresh bread in such hilly region is tough, but still it can be softer one). 5. Food orders takes long time to serve. 6. Think of including Mediterranean food options.More
