I was on my way to Shimla. I've had some very ordinary experiences at this place in the last 5-7 years. Every time I step into it.....it's with a hope that things would have got better & also thinking that how much lower can the food/service/management levels fall to. But 'Gyani Dhaba' is now the pits. Some owners feel that... More

Quality of food is OK but cleanliness and service needs improvement. Prices are also reasonable. It scores high points because it is one of the few good joints on Shimla Kalka road. Don't expect too much. Certainly over-hyped but in the absence of competition, does a good business.

Giani da dhaba used to be the best eatery about a decade back but now there is deterioration. The food is pathetic and not properly cooked. The service is very bad. It also lacks in hygiene. I was surprised to see that vegetable were being cut just outside a dirty toilet. I will never go to this dhaba again.

The food and service are disgusting here Giani da dhaba was a known for its pranthas and food couple of years back but now they are left with just name and fame to which they are earning and rest is just disgusting. The low class eatries which are nearby serves delicious food with respect and charge less.

If you are driving from Chandigarh to Shimla, you should not at all miss the tandoori paranthas here. This place offers great taste and i am sure you will feel like visiting here each time you visit Shimla. The food is also awesome,the perfect dhabba feeling you will get here.

During my Delhi days whenever we used to visit Kasauli a hault at Gyan'f was a must . Now it seems that the service is missing. We ordered a Paneer dish and dal makhani & found it to be ok. I wish that GD resolves the issues impacting its servicd and regains its past glory

It was once (92 - 93) a great place to stop. The food was good. Now its pathetic and the owner does not give two hoots about any feedback. He doesn't have to.....living on his past laurels.... Please do not waste your tome stopping here for below average food.....

We had been told to have Gyani's lemon chicken when we recently visited Naldehra. Friends vouched for it very strongly. Fortunately for us we reached in time for an early lunch. The lemon chicken as promised was very tasty. A simple dish without the usual overwhelming masalas it was flavorful and tasty. And the dal Makhani was also very good.
