We had a number of dinners here during our stay at the hotel itself. Our experiences are probably a little colored by the rather poor breakfast buffet. All in all the food is exactly what it promises to be; nothing more and nothing less. While this is not necessarily a problem it is also not something to write home about, especially considering the prices which are steep. Shillong, however, is hardly a culinary destination, in fact we struggled quite a bit to find decent food. Most of it, especially the Khasi dishes are, unlike for instance Assamese food, very fatty and oily. Pork tends to be a fatty chunk of meat; the chicken is often a better bet. This hotel restaurant is an okay place, if you are staying in the hotel you have the added advantage of already being there, but if you are staying in town itself I wouldn't recommend making the detour.

This restaurant is quite off the beaten path of restaurants in Shillong. That's probably what is best about this property for a quiet & good meal in perhaps what is the most calming ambiance that the city can deliver. The food is nothing to write home about - in terms of options (by options - I mean professionally crafted continental, authentic Chinese etc) - but by not means does it lack quality. You cannot go too wrong with what the local chef churns out of his kitchen. Desserts are limited - but that goes with the colloquial choice. What really stands out are the floral decorations and the noted effort to make the dining experience as naturally exquisite as possible.

We'd done a prior reservation for dinner.
Reaching the place was a bit difficult esp as it was way past dark when we started and we'd no locals to guide us (we used nokia maps to reach). The ambiance was good and the staff courteous though not upto the expectations.
The food quality and quantity was very good.
By the looks of it the rooms also looked cosy to stay though all rooms being occupied we couldn't get a "dekko".

We were a large group of 12 people and enjoyed chinese cuisine, which is a specialty range with them. The ambiance was also indeed royal

I went to visit my in-law's in Shillong and we took a chance to experience the food in Tripura Castle Restaurant. The food was awesome!!!! especially the pork barbeque. The Castle has wonderful staffs and very hospitable too. The place and the surroundings was clean and well- maintained. Looking forward to visit again...... It's worth going..............
