Nice cozy place but very small. Appears overrated in the reviews. Reasonable place. Expected live music as per reviews. Quick service and reasonable prices and hygiene but no live music

The cozy ambience, smiling staff and delectable food - it was a thoroughly enjoyable lunch experience at Shillong Cafe. Never had such juicy and tender Pork steak before.

Just back from cafe shillong where we had a cheesy veg burger and Greek salad. Staff behaviour was excellent. Food was awesome. My daughter loved the place. Special thanks to Saima ( do not know if spelling is correct)...she was so sweet

Heard a lot about this Cafe so went with a lot of expectation. Ordered Shillong noodles and chilli pork.which came wrapped in leaf so nice presentation but the noodles was of average taste. My friend ordered chicken momo which was good but not great. Price...was ok. Service was fast. To sum up you should visit for the ambience and the experience but not if you are looking for seriously good food !More

Visited Friday afternoon and got a table without problem. Had their Veg Thupka and Veg Fried Rice both of which were very good. Had Blueberry milkshake which didn't taste like Blueberry and a Caramel Coffee which didn't have any chocolate! Overall a good experience. Recommended.

It used to ba a happening place in Shillong and still some times its difficult to find a place to Sit. to have a view of Laitumkhra road you can sit outside. You will like the place if you come during a live Band. You...can try BTW cafe near Rani Motors Mawblei if you and to have a better view.More

One of the most chilled out places with excellent food. Went there for lunch - the pork thukpa & Shillong Fried Rice was out of the world. The kids also freaked on pastas.

We visited Cafe Shillong with high hopes. We ordered Thukpa which was below par. The service was good however the mediocre food is a let down.

Honestly I didn't enjoyed dining here. Selected this place after seeing all the reviews. But to my disappointment, the dishes were not at alla upto the mark. The only thing I like was the chicken momos.. So can't recommend that much

Very nice cute and trendy restaurant on the first floor. Went there twice and all dishes were excellent. The pork momos are the best I have ever had! Prices are very resonable, great service and portions are good.

We were in Shillong for 5 days and discovered Cafe Shillong on our second night. Ordered the pork momo soup and a Northeast pork dish. The 2 giant momo dish with a broth and spicy sauce was outstanding. The second contained bamboo shoots, which I...love and my friend doesn't so I ended up eating all the pork! On our second visit we ordered the momos again and the pork with sticky rice noodles. It was our last night in Shillong and a perfect meal to end our trip with. Dessert options can be improved. Overall a vibrant place that shouldn't disappoint you.More
