This is an actual restaurant as opposed to most of the outdoors type restaurants in the area. It is more expensive than most places and the food isn't necessarily better. Unfortunately smoking is allowed inside. The live music was good and there was a great atmosphere and the staff were very nice. Depends what you are after!

The place interior and exterior design is nice, but i didn't really have a good experience at this place. First, friends and i visited at brunch time so they were serving only snacks, which was totally fine, but the waiter was very rude and intolerant. As soon as we had a seat, he said he won't give us more than... More

They had an amazing ambience. Had a dual seating- on the outside next to river and the inside. The Live music was good however, the singer needs to work on the lyrics as he knew most of the english but very few hindi. The Service was fast. We didn't have to wait for hours for the food and repeat orders.... More

So, let me start with my rating. I was searching for a 1⁄2 star option to rate and it was unavailable. That is why I used the one star rating. The honest rating is much lesser than that. Me and five of my friends were in Manali for a tiny vacation. As we all are / were foodies we made... More

Nicely done interiors with huge outdoor seating space. Very limited options in menu We being vegetarian tried Kung pao paneer which was nice and mushroom dish which was out of the world. However I felt that alcohol was tad expensive. Overall nice place to chill and grab few drinks with friends .

This place has a very nice view of the river. It has outdoor and indoor seating. The staff are slow in taking order or responding. Food is good and the place has its interiors done very nicely. Place is slightly expensive as compared to its counterparts.
