Good place for Lunch

We had our lunch here. Again, resonably priced and good food. Some of the curries were a bit spicy though.

One of the oldest restaurant from the time when Shillong was the capital of Assam. Must try Chinese especially Hakka noodles & chilly chicken.

We went here based on a recommendation of our friend and the experience was a bit average compared to the hype. Food was good to ok, dosas could have been a bit more better. Though there are many seats, the ability to accommodate large groups could be a constraint. The Indian dishes seem to be more feasible than the others... More

We were tired of eating Chinese and local food. Thought to try south indian food in North East and it was a huge success. We had awesome dosa and very good idly. Thought it was not equal to chennai idly sambar, still it scored a lot when compared to other place.

Regal has been around for ages. It's just right for affordable and tasty meals at the end of a shopping trip to Police Bazar. The Chinese and Indian food is good, and it's best-know for the dosas.

Shillong is NOT a place of delightful dishes. Most of the places serves awful food. But this place is something close to a good meal. Nothing special, but affordable, 3.5/5 dishes. Probably the only place (I visited) which is worth my money and stomach.

The Regal restaurant located in Police Bazar, Shillong serves tasty south-indian delights like masala dosai which is a crowd favourite, idlis, vada and many others. Its always full the whole week through and its very difficult to find a table sometimes :-)

I truly love the restaurant . It has excellent service very polite waiters and whatever I have ordered I have not been disappointed. The cafe is always full. It is a great place to meet families and schoolchildren and young couples khasi and non khasi all come here to eat which is a wonderful experience. The prices are also good.... More

Used to visit a lot since childhood. Used to be first few restaurants to be serving south Indian food. All time favourites were idlies. Other than that, I always order Chhole bhature, potato chaat or Paani puchkas. Their coffee has always been the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Nowadays the food is still good but with a few changes. Idlies... More

This restaurant started as a very small establishment around 20 years back. They started with your normal dosa and chole bhatura kind of menu. The quality has remained the same for decades, infact I personally feel they are improving with time. Now ofcourse the menu has chinese as well but I go there just for the fresh crunchy Paper Masala... More
