This is an age old dhaba on the way to Kasauli. Its not nearly as good as used to be, but still almost always full.

Slightly over-rated but Gyani Dhaba has a legacy and food is always fresh. Service, Taste and Hygiene might not be very consistent. Parking is a headache, rather dangerous, since the turn sees fast vehicles. Hot food is generally tasty and hence GD scores on this. Probably needs to build a better toilet and deck up its interiors.

Its perhaps the biggest eating restaurants on NH22, Dharampur area. Food was good, tasty and value for money (not really cheap). Service was moderate OK types, Another option is Modern Dhabba (500mtrs from Gyani) smaller but tastier food.

Stop by and order anything. Great food. Though vegetarian, other members simply loved the non-veg. Parking can be an issue at peak time - but is a fast moving place. Service can be slow, but the good taste makes up for everything else. Just stop by and enjoy.

This ones certainly one of the oldest and still the best when it comes to north Indian dishes. I have tried many other restaurants near by but still end up there spl. for breakfast.The view can be verified by the number of cars parked out side and the waiting period.

Giani Da Dhaba serves very tasty food like lemon chicken, dal makhani but their ambiance is very low and rates are on higher side. You can also buy local made cheap fruit wines and fruit juices from here.

Have been eating here since I was a kid, it has become a ritual to stop and have the food here. Still love the simple kheer they server along with Black dal, paneer and tandoori roti.

Must try brown dal & butter chicken. If its a season & peak hours then you must know trick to pounce on table for you by standing on head of the person eating right now.

The food is excellent. However if you go during lunch time (12pm to 4 pm) expect a lot of rush. The staff is friendly. Do try the Amritsari Kulcha (although its not available during lunch time).
