The food is still good but not as good as it used to be. Still the best in that area though at affordable prices. A good stop on your way to Shimla/ Chail

For old time sake, revisited Gyani Da Dhaba. Has become overcrowded and the staff finds it difficult to cope with the lunch-time crowd. Food quality is going down with the crowds swelling. Parking on this highway still continues to be an issue. One quite place on this road has now become a big marketplace. Nothing great about it now.

Although all the Dhabas in Punjab and Himachal offer quality food. This one offers a real delight of authentic Punjabi flavor. The setup is not very trendy and it is like good old 'Dhabas'. The food (both Veg and Non-veg) is awesome. You would get the taste of each and every Punjabi spice with each morsel. Still the spices won't... More

Very embarrassing ! People staring at u eating, waiting for u to leave. Needs renovation urgently. Food quality is also just ok , nothing to... More

Over the years, the service quality has gone down and so has the taste. The place has become very overcrowded and behaves like they don't want business anymore. Better options exist at Dharampur like Haveli / Hot Millions.
