We were seeking directions to a much advertised vegetarian South Indian restaurant in Shillong. It was suggested that we try Madras Cafe for more authentic Tamil taste, albient in average ambience. We accepted the suggestion and were not disappointed. We had masals and sada dosas,...uttapa and filter coffee. The coconut chutney and sambar served with the snacks were 90%+ authentic, as were the uttapa and filter coffee, and the dosas were 70% authentic.More

Still not a bad place for dosas especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They get the crisp of a dosa quite well and waiters are attentive.

Once upon a time, Madras Cafe used to give New India Restaurant stiff competition. Considering that the latter has long gone, I was quite disappointed that the quality of food isn't much to write about, though the price may be reasonable for some. The staff...are ever courteous, if one can get them away from the TV. I wouldn't go all the way there for a meal as so many options are now available in town.More

It's a reasonably priced hotel. Not expensive at all. Don't recall the exact price, unfortunately.
