I visited Samyana restaurant in April this year along with my family. After Shikara riding I was in search of good restaurant for lunch. Someone suggested me Samyana,just opposite Dal lake. Service was very good. Restaurant is spacious and well maintained. Food was also so delicious. It is surely recommended.

The Shamyana Restaurant next to Dal Lake was highly recommended during our Srinagar visit. Though it had only a couple of Wazwan dishes, the food was very tasty and the service was prompt.

The place is a nice warm restaurant. The food is slightly spicy, but quite authentic. People interested in getting a taste of local Kashmiri food, this place is the right place.

Great Location and one of the finest restaurants if you want to taste authetic Kashmiri food. Try out the delicious Navratna Pulao and the Paneer Pudina.

Shamyana in Srinagar located on sides of Dal lake offers best food and service in town. The food infact is much better than over hyped Ahdoos restaurant which we found is only for hardcore non vegetarians. Must visit shamyaan while in srinagar.

We tried the Rista and Chicken Handi, Keema Paratha ... We found the food very spicy and extremely oily.. I guess that's how the preparation is in Kashmir... Was an average experience.. However, we saw a lot of people having Chicken biryani.. Do try that.. The restaurant Staff is very friendly and warm
