Authentic khasi food... the place is small but very clean & tidy . Can get very busy very quickly. Best place for Khasi food in Shillong!

This restaurant is located in Police Bazaar,Shillong. This restaurant is opposite to Delhi Misthan Bhandhar. This is a small restaurant and seating is not that comfortable. The table is also small. They only have a limited things to offer(I think there is no menu card...here). There is no parking space in front of this restaurant so plan accordingly. We went for lunch & ordered a jadoh pork platter and rice with fish curry. Both the ordered things were simply superb. Food is served immediately once we place the order. jadoh pork platter had small quantity of many pork dishes and it was good in taste. I especially liked the pork meat ball. Fish curry was also good. The quantity they serve per plate is just sufficient for a person and rates are also decent.I am not sure if this restaurant has many things to offer for vegetarians. I will highly recommend this restaurant for having Khasi food called jadoh.More

The Place is in VR Mall in Anna Nagar. The food and the desserts are good. The place is a little expensive.

Came here in the high hopes of a great authentic local experience but it was a bit of a let down. Seeing the pics with kids made me believe it was a family friendly restaurant but not really. We came here for lunch on a...rainy day. The place is super small and tables are really narrow and so is the seating - so it was tough to accommodate our 18.5mo old with the booster chair i was carrying. The owner is very friendly and warm and food comes really fast! But overall place isn't very clean, no bathroom and just a very small dirty sink available :( on a rainy day the floor gets dirty quickly and very slippery so wouldn't advise for families unless you are used to such conditions. Anyhow, we ordered pork and chicken thalis - both had very little meat and quite tough to chew - so again not very child friendly. Thalis are cheap but not much quantity actually and the taste was good but not what i was expecting given the high rated reviews. We honestly didnt enjoy the entire experience and was very put off. Perhaps need to come back once our kid is older and try again this experience. I usually take a lot of photos of all my food experiences but i was so put off that didn't take any :(More

A perfect destination if you are in Shillong to try the ethnic Khasi dishes. A perfect place for a non veg lover. Do try the Jadoh and this is a perfect lunch / dinner thing. You can also try the various fish, chicken and pork...items as well.More

This place offers very good food. You may need to wait to be seated considering the crowd. But it is good.

We were scanning the Police market area for a place to eat khasi cuisine. Its then that we noticed this little hole in the wall shop where a lot of locals were going to eat. When we sat down we were unsure of what to...expect but the owner walked forward and literally explained the menu to us. We ended up ordering the Pork platter and the Fish platter. While the pork platter was heavenly, there were some issues with fish scales and bones in the fish thali. But the quality, variety and quantity of the food overall were excellent. Visit it to have some authentic khasi food without burning a hole in your pocket.More

With a name like Trattoria, I expected something fancy so when I saw Trattoria - I was a bit taken aback. It's a real hole in the wall with the feel of a dorm room eating joint. There is nothing fancy about it except the...food. Richard the manager explains the food quite well and the Khasi food is absolutely fantastic. It tastes fresh, great and probably what an authentic Khasi meal should taste like. Don't miss it.More

Its a small and unique Bus -like seating place serving authentic Khasi Food. If you are new to this cuisine, then the owner would recomment the Pork or chicken platter which has a little of all the items. They close by 8Pm so you have...to be there for early dinners.More

Obviously there are but khasi food is for sure more of non veggie than veggies! If you are a pure vegetarian then I would not suggest this for you. Keep travelling and eat local!

They don't really have a website or a Facebook page. It is a small but old and very renowned eatery though.
