We were absolutely starving when we chanced upon this restaurant! The ambience was really chilled out and the staff was ever so pleasant! Do order the Red Thai Curry and you won't be disappointed, the spicy tuna roll was pretty good as well. There's a choice of outdoor seating as well. Food is pretty decently priced.

It's a nice looking place by the riverside with outdoor seating having swings etc making it a very cool and romantic place to dine in. They also have live music every evening. They have a nice bar. Food is average, some items are good some are average.

Lazy Dog seems to live up to its name. While it does have an excellent ambience, drinks and food orders take quite the time to get to you. You've lost your appetite by then. The food is okay and the staff seem a little too busy

We took a trip to old Manali and had already decided to have a meal at the Lazy Dog, after reading various reviews. The entire experience is amazing. They have a bar and restaurant. Indoor and outdoor seating if weather permits and a menu that will satisfy any taste bud. The service is prompt and pleasing. The food is out... More

The bar indoors is well stocked with a wide variety of spirits and offers a plethora of cocktails and mocktails. You must try their cheese, olive pizza and veg... More

The restaurant is set by the river in the heart of old Manali. We chose to sit outside by the river which was great, The food served was below par. The chicken was stale and unedible, the vietnamese rolls bad and the kung pao chicken was full of raw garlic. On the positive side the presentation of these dishes was... More

Lots of gr8 reviews at tripadvisor led us to this place. No one cared if the customers walked in, it was early evening and they were busy among themselves. The location is good and there is an option to sit out, the prices and the choices are like a metropolitan pub. We walked out after waiting to be attended.

I visited this restaurant with my wife recently. We literally had to ask the waiter 10 times to come and take our order. This was when the restaurant was not completely packed up with crowd. I wonder what service speed would be at peak time. However we just walked away :(

Dear Alok, I am really sorry for not being able to serve you during your visit to the Lazy Dog last weekend. August is low season for us, and we were completely unprepared for the big rush that hit us on this 4-day-long Independence Day/Janmashtami break. Four of our staff were on leave, on very valid grounds. There were marriages... More
