In the end we came twice to this haven. On both occasions I opted for trout - the local delicacy. The first time the caper sauce was delicious. The second time I discovered that they also have smoked trout. And they fillet the fish for you, if you ask. The setting is stylish. The toilets are clean. What more can... More

Being a huge fan of bacon, i never expected to find the best bacon wrapped chicken i've ever had to be in Manali. But the texture, and that chutney was to die for!

Centrally located. Average food with really poor presentation - see pictures Average service Currently they have construction going on. Has a good parking place, so that's a plus point. Old manali has better places to eat

Johnson's is a perfect place when you have time on your hands and want to pretty much do nothing but sip over a tall cup of hot chocolate, dig into a meal at leisure or just enjoy a beer at the bar. The crowd that comes in is pretty cosmopolitan, from families to backpackers to large groups to the solo... More
