“Hot humid sorry interiors noisy n crowded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

If you don't mind sweating as you wait and eat among a lot of noise on uncomfortable chair, this place is fine.

Boiled rice with pork / chicken curry or smoked is the specialty here.

Budget Rs 300 per head.

So budget place but you can't relax n eat but rather get stressed out.

So won't recommend for having a good time.

“Incredibly delicious - a wonderful taste of Assam cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

It's difficult to put into words how much I love Khorikaa. I've been there several times now, most recently last week. It's my favorite lunch spot in Guwahati (they serve dinner also but I like going there at lunch time, when I'm the most hungry!).

Khorikaa is the name of the smoked meat, of which they have a variety - chicken, mutton, pork, duck, pigeon, fish... all the traditional fare. The meat is incredibly flavorful. Foreigners should be aware that the smoked pork and mutton (but especially the pork) are quite fatty, and in case of the pork, if you get four pieces, two of them will almost certainly be entirely made of fat.

The non-veg khorikaa thali comes on a traditional large brass plate, with all-you-can-eat rice, and a variety of sumptuous veg and non-veg offerings, along with smoked meat of your choice. Included is khar (a green papaya curry made with alkali that's good for digestion and a good, traditional way to start the meal), two kinds of dal (black and red), three sabjis (we had roasted tomato, aloo pitika/mashed potato with mustard oil, and seasonal veg sabji), a meat curry of your choice, and dessert (typically kheer/rice pudding). It's a huge amount of food and for the two of us, including a bottle of mineral water and an order of extra meat, we paid only Rs. 400/- (about $8) for a meal that was as delicious as it was filling and satisfying. We couldn't even finish all the food, there was so much of it.

Service is good, not super friendly but professional and prompt. There are two washrooms, one in each dining room, which is convenient. The restaurant is clean and comfortable, and gets packed, so go a little early (before 1) to get a good table at lunchtime.
