For veg lovers this one is too good. Lovely atmosphere, painting's awesome, feel like artistic place. Beyond that food was ultimate one. Dont miss if you come to shillong.

I are dinner at Madras Café on a Sunday evening and ordered a Paper Masala Dosa. The waiters were really prompt in taking my order, getting it to me and helping me with the billing process. The food was good in taste and quantity.
