Most unhygienic place with uncourteous staff and awful food. Never ever go to this place. If there was an option to rate them in negative I would have given minus 100 raised to power infinity!!!!!

The floor looks like it hasn't been washed in ages. It's a pity to see bad management of a once popular place.

Without any double thought the best jalebis in the entire northeast & everything sells like hot cakes. Also, try samosas & dry namkeens locally made of various flavours

Overall taste of whatever served was sub standard. But this is only option in Shillong if you want to try north Indian snacks like papri chat etc.
