This place captures the spirit of Shillong. In the evenings the young crowd hangs out here, and apart from the regular musicians, the guests sometimes give it a try. Even though quality of that entertainment becomes doubtful, but the enthusiasm makes up for it, and makes it more than just a restaurant. The menu is well spread out, and being... More

This is a popular place for both locals and tourists. They have regular music evenings and great food. There are two branches in town, but we prefer the Laitumkrah branch, though both are good.

Its just recently renovated and has s lovely view and located near Don Bosco Square in the prime part of the city. Although its a bit expensive but the place is worth a try. Ambience and music is good and the waiters/waitresses are polite and kind. The steak needs to be worked on as well as the mocktails, otherwise its... More

We visited RI Kanjai for lunch. Must say the property is breath taking. Facing the Umiam lake the few from the restaurant is so serene. The food was a bit on higher side but it was good. Menu has a whole page dedicated to the North East authentic cuisine. The only disadvantage is their service they take too much time... More

Very good food at a reasonable price. Not for budget travelers. We enjoyed good Naga food there. Steaks are also available.

Definitely a must visit when in Shillong esp. over the weekend for the live music. Great food and coffee. Quite buzzing, seems to be a favourite amongst Shillong youth. The singers on Saturday evening were fabulous - complete Rockstars!
