planned to had lunch at giani da dhaba after seeing so much hustle there, but as - it was "unchi dukaan fika pakwaan" No waiter came to our table for almost 30 minutes. When i felt restless, went to the owner for a solution. Instead of listening, he just said if you want to have food here... wait or leave.... More

Good North-Indian veg and non-veg options. Food wasn't spicy or oily, like you normally get in other dhabas. Very well-balanced and delicious. Really liked the murg makhani and the lemon chicken. Timings should be noted : 9 am to 9 pm. They do not entertain new guests after 9 pm, so please make sure to grab your table before 9... More

I usually pack chicken from here while travelling across it. Their chicken is pretty good. However, I feel that they should do a bit more (better seating/ambiance and toilet facilities) for travelers who prefer to sit and eat here.

Food is good. But Ambiance and Service is average. Rates are optimum. Sometimes too overcrowded.But good food covers most of the flaws. They need a professional touch.

Gyani da dhaba was reigning at one time but he kept the same lower standards throughout. With the opening up of more good restaurants around it has really lost it's ground. Still not that bad.

There are very few good eating joints in Kasauli. This being on the Chandigarh Shimla highway is a very convenient stop, and good option for people staying about 10 kms away in Kasauli. Food is good , very quick ...loved the dal and paneer bhurji. Can be cleaner...but then by dhaba standards very good. The clean toilet was a lifesaver.

We happened to stop over at Giani Da Dhaba on way to Chail. The restaurant as usual was packed to full and this was around 10 AM in the morning. The restaurant needs some renovation urgently now. The lighting inside is pretty dim and there is hardly any walking space in between the seating places. The no of waiters are... More

The food and preparation is very good and only problem is you have to stop eating as after the meal you have to again hit the roads in a hilly terrain.
