We heard a lot about this place, so we thought about checking this out. This is the best place to have the Himalayan trout. Good ambiance and nice place to hang out.

Went to have dinner and sure was disappointing after reading and hearing so much about it.The Lasagna ordered was good but the Bloody Mary served was dilute and was not thick. The pizza ordered lacked salt and was average - i don't know if the chef forgot to add it.

The billboards boast of a lot and the decor kind of matches their tall claims, the service is really sad rude waiters and the food it just plain average.. all the fuss about their trout menu is a farce.. the fish doesn't taste ravishing as they project.Their deal on happy hours is just for name sake...Try hangouts at old Manali...

Loved the food, Music and ambience. Choose seating next to fire place. But beaware there are two hotels by the same name. If you are going up hill from square it is the 1st one.
