Nice place to eat - but don't expect too much - it's just manageable food - good for just average last minute options

I'm not to excited about the taste of its cuisines. We had Dal, Jeera Alloo and also Gulam Jamun. Did not enjoy a single one out of the above.

Amazingly clean kitchen and great food. Really a great place to break for lunch or just a quick snack. They seem to have everything covered.

Ordered for parathas and a Paneer dish and they both tasted good. Also went for lassi but surprising the lassi wasn't a freshly prepared one but one in a sealed pack from a shop, not something you expect from a dhaba. Overall though, if you are headed to Kasauli, a stopover at Gyani Dhaba is a must.

It was a sunny Sunday morning in Chandigarh, when all of my family decided to head towards Kasauli. On our way we happened to stop in the very over hyped place called as "Giani Da Dhaba" in Dharampur. It was not the first time we went to this place.

If you happen to cross Dharampur and want have a meal, it's not a bad place to dig into some punjabi food.

This dhaba is situated in dharampur on the Chandigarh-shimla route. Looking at the crowd one must say that it's quite popular specially if you are heading to shimla. Service here was quite prompt considering that most customers are travellers.

Those people who have praised this dhaba, they have 0% idea of their taste buds. We went at this dhaba after drive of 4 hours and were very excited over eating here. I found Giani ji (sitting on cash counter) very arrogant. We ignored him and ordered 3 pranthas with Dahi & Butter. We were served cold paranthas. When i... More
