We'd ordered the Trout fish in pepper sauce - trout fish is their specialty - French Fries and beer. The fish was absolutely mouth watering. One of the best fishes I've had in India with the exception of coastal regions.

Foods good, they are renovating I guess so less options. But yep a tasty place and tasteful music. It may look expensive and classy but has wide ranges. Has a lovely play room with pictionary and carrom. I did play solo chess :)

Very good food and drinks. Slightly on the expensive side but worth it. I've always enjoyed the food here. Whether its the trout or duck dishes. One of the places to go and have a meal in Manali.

Johnson's has been the most consistent place over the years. Great food, easy service and family friendly - this is definitely one meal you want to have when in Manali.
