Located just in the middle of Dharampur, one time use to be great stopover for dhaba food. Cramped place and service is pathetic. Not a hygienic place. Food served is just average and nothing great. Totally over rated place. Its just normal Dhaba and nothing great about this place. Dal, Baigan Bharta, Butter chicken, Rajmah, mix veg we tried all... More

Probably why I didn't find it that great because I had heard too much about it. The food was good, just like any other punjabi Dhaba. I couldn't really find anything extraordinary about the food. We ordered, chicken, dal, paneer main course items and even stuffed paranthas. The best part was maybe the chai (tea), really tasty. It's an average... More

This dhaba has lost the taste with time. The butter chicken was one thing we used to have everytime we visited kasauli or shimla. But now the food is not at all good. Almost all dishes have same gravey with ALOT of tomatoes in it. If you are used to north indian food, you will not like it. Other may... More

I was here with friends. Ordered makke ki roti, Sarso Saag, dal fry, pander do pyaza and rotis. Food was absolute crap, esp the daal which we just couldn't have more. This when we were really cold and hungry. This place is a must avoid. Frankly anybody who likes this place must be having zero idea of what good food... More

The title of the review says it all. The parathas were nice, not my best of choice though. Lassi was excellent. If you are pure veggie, the smell of noon-veg due to crunched up place might irritate you.

If you like non oily, non spicy food, like your mutton well cooked, and your rotis crisp, do stop at this place for lunch. The meat, in all probability, is jhatka, but is well cooked (probably boiled, not bhunoed), and the service is prompt. The pictures don't do justice to the food, to be honest.

One of the popular stopovers on the way to Shimla. Hygeine is not good. Parking on the road is risky.

Great homely paranthas and good service. Worth stopping at Dharampur for this place. We had our lunch here.
