We were staying at the hotel on MAP basis and the amount of food we could have ordered at meals on this plan was seriously generous. The menu is extensive, with plenty of choice for vegetarians. My favorites were the veg kofta and the vegetarian burger. Breakfast choices included channa bhatura, a real treat for me!

We went to this place every night while we were staying in Manali. The staffs are really friendly and the foods are awesome. You must try Nachos, I ordered every time when I was drinking. Not only the foods are good but also bartenders know how to make proper cocktails as well.

This is an absolute 'not to be missed' place. Awesome location, good views, delicious food, excellent service. Not very pocket friendly though. Even during the happy hours they offered just just 20% off (non 1+1 etc offers). Apart from that, overall experience was good.
