Awesome defined

I was in Katra for 2 days and I wanted to get the best Dhaba experience in town. So I decided to ask around. The first night I was recommended Manoranjan and landed there wading through huge wave of humanity. As I entered the lane leading to the restaurant I got a feeling this was the right place... read more

Ambience: Perfect setting of a traditional dhaba. Food: Taste is awesome, Ordered Paneer Parantha You can walk into the lanes of market and find the place very near to Bus Stand Overall : Satisfying exp.for a food lover but do not expect a fine dining setup

Manoranjan Dhaba is exactly what one would expect a North Indian Dhaba to be like... Great food, personalised service, economical as hell and a smiling owner to say Thanks to. After the climb to Bhawan, this is the best place to stockpile the lost calories. Must visit restaurant while in Katra.

Food was good for the price paid. The biggest problem is it is extremely noisy and due to this you really can't enjoy the food........

Dingy lanes & sweaty servers aside. The food is so good that you will forget everything else. While we had to wait for almost 20 minutes to be seated (the place can cram in about 150 ppl) the food was served very quickly. Please don't even think about counting your calories here coz every thing was dripping with butter &... More

When we visit entered the lane in which this restaurant resides we were very sceptical. The look of the dhaba reinforced our skepticism. But the reviews on Tripadvisor were compelling enough. We ordered our food & it was delicious to say the least. Certainly recommended for everyone.

Its the best place to eat in Katra. Very economical food and authentic. All food is without onion garlic. The Daal Fry is awesome, so is the Rajma. We also loved Mattar Paneer. The Roti here is also very good. I just loved this place. Cannot find a better place to eat. We ate 3 times in our stay there.
