if you are coming from Shimla....once you cros all that Giani...other dhabas...keep driving for a bit and left handside is a dhaba type called B&B...basil and bean....has got a Orange signboard. it has fantastic views...and good food. the washrooms are very clean. we were there day before and we had delicious Veg sandwiches...55 bucks a plate. their coffees are very good and they have good cappuchinos, mochas etc. I know the family who owns this place. they also own a very successful restaurant in chandigarh. you must try it...and post review. this is before the railway Phatak after you cross Giani.Had lunch at giani dhaba, on way back from shimla a week back , to me it was overcrowded, overpriced and not great food, just ok type.
we had food therejust for using washrooms, , now with other options around, i guess we will avoid giani dhaba.
Giani da dhaba has lost its charm. Eating a jumbo burger at Hot millions makes my mouth water. You should try it when you do next timeHaving been to Giani Dhaba many times over the years, I have actually seen their service quality deteriorating badly. Many years back, they used to treat customers very well, and all were welcomed to a clean environment and clean tables. Now, its over crowded, over priced, loos stink, food quality has gone down and worst still, they don't give a damn about you being there. Last month I stopped there with my family to be ushered to a dirty table which remained dirty for 15 mins as there is only 1 guy who would clean the table and he was busy. Finally after I decided to move out after waiting in vain for 15 mins, I got dirty looks. I then proceeded to Hot Millions which was fine in food quality and seating. I will not return to Giani again.
