This was my first visit to Manali. I was wandering around old Manali and came across the Lazy Dog restaurant. I was amazed at the excellent staff, food and best of all it's on the beautiful river. You must not miss this place on your visit. Great food! Great staff! Indoor and outdoor seating. Also they have amazing events.
