Perfect place for a romantic dinner.. open seats next to River Beas sweeten the deal... the food was nice but a little on the expensive Side.

“Service as name”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

I visited this restaurant with my wife recently. We literally had to ask the waiter 10 times to come and take our order. This was when the restaurant was not completely packed up with crowd. I wonder what service speed would be at peak time. However we just walked away :(

Dear Alok,
I am really sorry for not being able to serve you during your visit to the Lazy Dog last weekend. August is low season for us, and we were completely unprepared for the big rush that hit us on this 4-day-long Independence Day/Janmashtami break.

Four of our staff were on leave, on very valid grounds. There were marriages and family functions, and it would have been unfair to deny them. We were left with just the captain (doubling up as bartender), one steward and one trainee for service.

Fortunately of unfortunately we did get completely packed in the evening, and there was nothing we could do but tender our apologies to guests for the slow service, most of whom were so kind as to bear with us. A lot of them were people who have been visiting us regularly and have experienced good standards of service here. We barely managed thanks to some friends who were visiting from Delhi and gracefully helped out with the service.

This is not an excuse for not being able to serve you well, and definitely not an attempt at justification. Once again, I apologise profusely, and solicit your patience and indulgence considering the circumstances we were faced with during your visit. Please do give us an opportunity to serve you again. I assure you will not be disappointed.

Warm Regards

“Amazing location. Good food. Superb interiors. ”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

One of the best locations you can have for a restaurant. The river gushes by it roaringly and there is a wonderful breeze.

We ate indoors though and I enjoyed the interiors. The food was good. I don't remember it being exceptional but I remember it being very nice and satisfying.

So if you are going to manali, id recommend you look beyond the so called New manali and spend a good time in Old Manali and have atleast one meal in The Lazy Dog.

“Great Location”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Perched over the edge of the river, locations in Manali don't come much better, and fortunately the collar matches the cuffs as the food is good too.
