Although a bit on the pricy side as far as Indian food in the area goes, the food was some of the best in Manali. Beautiful outdoor seating. Because of it's location it wasn't really ever super busy which made it a nice place to get away and eat some great food.

The sound of the river flowing beside the restaurant gets so soothing as the night comes about. The food is good, with a nice bonfire to keep you warm on the cold nights. Like most places in Manali, it features a menu filled food from around the world, but is more famous for its fresh sea food. They also have... More

I went to Lazy Dog with heightened expectations because of the location. The location is undoubtedly great but I was a little disappointed by the service. The french fries were crispy and they served very chilled beer. The decor of the place is perfect to make you 'lazy'. Though I wish they had better music and attentive service.

The place is at the beautiful location on the bank of beas river. The sound of river rumbling over the rocks and steaming tasty food makes this place one of my fav in Manali. You have option of outdoor or indoor seating, both having their own perfect ambience. Do try their trout fish and Sunny side up.

The little terrace at the back with a hammock, wooden chairs and the river flowing below is a delight. Especially when the clouds set-in. The menu... More

The vegetable curry was one of the best I've had in India. There is outdoor seating next to the river and relaxed indoor seating at tables or floor seating too. Service can be a bit slow but overall it's a good place to eat and/or drink.

bit noisy due to the running water noise in the background but unlike the name, there is nothing lazy or doggish about this place. Its actually well opposite and a warm place to visit in Old Manali. go there for the non veg platter, great chinese food... dont try anything European as the chef doesnt seem to understand the occidental...
