Lazy Dog Lounge

Multicuisine in Manali

This slick restaurant-bar produces flavoursome international food – from roast-pumpkin soup to peri-peri chicken, quinoa salad to semi-deconstructed pad Thai (Thai noodles in tamarind sauce). The inside space is classy yet earthy, or you can relax in the riverside garden with its weeping willow fronds and Buddha rocks.

There's an extensive drinks list (beer/shots from ₹280/190), shisha water-pipes to puff (₹480), and a trancey soundtrack with varied live-music sessions in season.
