My friend and I strolled over old Manali and found the place in an alley. It was late quiet afternoon and we were a bit tired and wanted to find some drink and light meal. The restaurant had a serene ambiance and attracted us from the exterior front door. It gave distinctively stylish feel than other restaurants along the road.... More

I stayed there after I read some of the reviews and it was the right choice! It was afternoon on a sunday, very quiet, except of the river, but that's a beautiful thing, and quite peaceful. The food was just as delicious as the service was warmhearted. And the owner has a special sense of humor for philosophical comic strips.... More

The location of the place couldn't better, Manalsu river, mountains, fresh wind. Quite spectacular. One can choose to relax inside by the fire place or enjoy the sun outdoors. Food is excellent. Being vegetarian can be challenging while travelling, not so at the Lazy Dog. Salads are quite different from other restaurants, fresh and seriously good. Indian food couldn't be... More

I have been visiting The Lazy Dog for the last 5 years now and it's my favourite restaurant in Manali. It is, by far, the best located. Lazy Dog overlooks the Beas. It has a lovely willow tree in their outdoor area, and a terrific view of snow capped peaks. The food is consistently good: I like the trout and... More

So we stumbled across this cute place called Lazy Dog. As the name suggests its a cozy place just right for a great time with friends. Its located right next to the river and hence the sound of the flowing water and the outside seating (my fave part of the rest) just added to the whole experience. We spent quite... More

Lazy Dog, Old Manali is a charming restaurant right next to a beautiful stream. One has the choice of enjoying their remarkably good food under the stars listening to the sound of the gushing stream or inside the cheerfully done up restaurant listening to some great music. Either-way, it is a must-visit destination in old Manali.

Super cute joint right by the River manalsu...we had a really early dinner here...we saw a lot of young crowd downing a couple of drinks with the appetisers and never getting around to the main course. But Im glad we had a complete meal right till the dessert. The place doesn't have the sophistication in terms of staff and chef... More

I was recommended by a friend to visit this place. ..Location and ambience score high points ...But to the contrary service is poor and waiting time is quite high which tests the patience of empty stomachs ....If improved, the place can be is an excellent combo of good food, location and ofcourse good mood
