Good food

I have been visiting Gyani Dhaba for over 18years now. Initially the place served excellent food so much so that we used to look forward to our meals here on the way to Kasauli from Delhi and way back. We would even make a trip down from Kasauli to have a meal here. The prices were pocket... read more

We were there during Diwali last year. Having heard a lot about this place from everyone on the internet and being a foodie myself,couldn't resist going to this dhaba. We went there around lunch time and it was packed! Got two tables joined,since we were a large family.The service is painfully slow. I guess, they need to hire more waiters.... More

Find some space for parking and the rest will be a good memory. Great place to have a variety of parathas with hot tea and pakora on the side.

I had two meals at Gyani da dhana--lunch and dinner. Food is tasty and the place quite clean. Service could be better though. The wait staff was not very attentive even though there weren't many people in the restaurant (we went there in January which is low season for tourism in Kasauli area).

Will never go back to this restaurant. Had eaten here 6 yrs back on the way to Shimla so went back this time on the way to Kasauli but the elderly gentleman serving us always had a frown on his face & when we were ordering more food, he made such a angry face as if he was doing us... More

The food here is not that great, it is like that we are very hungry by the time we reach Gyani Dhaba after a long journey, the food automatically tastes good, butter chicken is average but dal makhani is good, desi ambience, slow service, expensive food for a dhaba, parking problem and least the waiter attitude one has to face!!!

I have been there 4-5 times. It is located on the highway. I found the quality of food to be good. In terms of ambience, they have a scope to improve since it is one of the most famous dhaba on that road. Overall a good dhaba for both veg and non vegetarians.
