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

One of the best locations you can have for a restaurant. The river gushes by it roaringly and there is a wonderful breeze. We ate indoors though and I enjoyed the interiors. The food was good. I don't remember it being exceptional but I remember it being very nice and satisfying. So if you are going to manali, id recommend... More

Perched over the edge of the river, locations in Manali don't come much better, and fortunately the collar matches the cuffs as the food is good too.

The Lazy Dog situated on cliff overlooking the river is definitely one place worth going. Had the most tasty fresh rainbow trout . The service and ambiance also was warm and friendly. Even the owner himself extended his services to make my friends and I feel at home. I definitely recommend a visit both for the amazing view from the... More

We were recommended by a friend to visit this place. We came in around 20:00 to a lightly packed restaurant with a really surprising westernized interior design. I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. My friends ordered the Thai Curry and the Chop Suey. The food was exquisite. Every dish was tasty to perfection, an I...
