Just another dhaba

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Shoghi. We were a large group of 12 people but managed to get a table right away. We ordered a number of dishes from which I sampled two - Hari Mirch Paratha & Chicken Curry. The Paratha was enough to make smoke come out of my ears while the Curry was... read more

M not going to rate this place based on ambience, service etc etc..but purely on food..not good..just about average and no "Dhaba" taste. The best thing we had here was Missi Roti..so go figure..

On the first day of our visit to Kasauli we decided to visit the famous Gyani Dhabha. It's an old establishment which is still living in time warp and not in a good way.. It is neither old and quaint nor modern and clean. One detects in the owners and waiters a sense of apathy. The Dhabha is not clean... More

A nice highway stop for a quick meal. Catering to both non-veg and veggies; Dal Makhani and Malai Kofta is one of the specialities to relish

We stopped here for a meal. The service was very slow. We had to call our thrice to make sure we were getting our food. It seemed like the had forgotten about us after they took our order. The food was delicious. No complaints there.

It used to be the BEST and now they it seems they have compromised their quality just to earn money. As said by my previous fellows in the comments it is surviving on it's name only. Please improve your quality as it used to be...
