“Laidback cafe in lazy Shillong”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

It is a quirky little wooden cabin with wonderful yellow lighting and an elaborate continental fare which is quite delicious. The small matter of getting to watch some of the rarest music performances on the big LCD TV – music that the owner has collected over several diligent years – is the proverbial icing on the cake. The café is set up in a car park and hence it has a wonderful vibe to it with youngsters flocking in their cars, chilling and having the delicious food. The gourmet maggi noodles are delicious and so are the various improvisations on the french fries. The coffees, shakes and mocktails are all fresh. I can also assure you all the preparations are made fresh in front of you with supplies bought early in the morning on that same day. I will want to go to Shillong again for several reasons, Munchies being one of them.

“THE place to hang out in Shillong”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Lovely, lovely place. One of the best beef burgers I've had in India, and that's no exaggeration. Great vibe with a cool young crowd. The owner Anand has an awesome collection of rock and metal videos that are playing all day long. Pretty much everything on the menu is fantastic. You really can't go wrong, no matter what you order. And the most incredible value for money. 110 bucks for the most lavish beef burger with bacon. Plus, refreshing glasses of tang for 15 bucks. Can't ask for more. I was in Shillong for 4 days. Ate at least one meal here every day. Couldn't recommend it more.

“Yummo!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Cool venue to hang out with friends, snack on yummy food while sipping on delish milkshakes from their beverages menu. I've been to Munchies several times and the staff have always been friendly. Would love to go back again for a midweek meal on the deck.

“a hippie place in the northeast”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

great burgers and milkshakes , and should i mention the music - classic contemporary rock like grateful dead and stones . the cafe has an open vibe which loads of other places do not have which make u feel like a box. its like karabi or Goa kinda beach shack look. the service is good and even though u need to wait , there's the music and the road view that keeps you occupied.

“Chill out in Shillong”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

If great food people music n ambience is your thing, then you must visit this cool place. I was pleasantly surprised by their spaghetti bolognaise which was thinner than usual in a tasty gravy with meatballs, the juicy cheese burger. And to top it all, the musical legends of Shillong hang out there too, incl Elvis himself:)
