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.

Found Lazy Dog to be an out of this world experience, a pleasant surprise in the Old Manali terrain. The interior designing and decor is very innovative, soothing and warm. You can look out at the beautiful river from inside the restaurant or sit outside on a big protruding ledge that doubles up for a fantastic green open air balcony... More

The best part of the restaurant is the view of the Beas River and the loud noise created by the gushing water adds... More

The layout and the food are the best thing about this place. The only reason it falls behind will be the approach from the road, however the courteous staff more than makes that up. Vegetarian members of the troupe like me had some great dishes to savor on as well. One visit is definitely recommended.

Dear Aman, I have investigated your claim with the stewards, the captain and the manager. I'm very confident that no such incident has taken place, and that your claim is frivolous. Your allegation is serious and I hope you have evidence or information to back it up. 1) What were the 'belongings' that you claim were not delivered to you?... More

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
