Had a quick lunch at this restaurant during travel break from Shillong to Guwahati. The food is really nice and service excellent. The owner seems to be personally involved in the upkeep. Only complaint is that the ongoing work should be completed at the earliest.

Stopped for lunch on the way from Kaziranga to Shillong. Observed that most patrons were ordering Chinese rather than Punjabi. So ordered Fried Rice and Chilly Chicken. The food was average and chicken was non-spicy, on the sweeter side possibly due to excess onion. Their sister concern City Hut Dhaba, in Shillong, is way better.

Things have however really detoriated and what you... More

The best mid journey eatery for travellers to and from Shillong/Guwahati. Could be a hassle if you desire to munch on some exotic item from their menu at 20 minutes + in prep time but the usual crop of puri sabjee should be a jiffy. Looks clean and hygienic and a large parking area that no other traveller's restaurant in... More

I have always stopped at Woodlands to have a quick bite enroute to Shillong. Something like the midway between the 103 km distance from Guwahati to Shillong, Woodlands is located in Nongpoh and came up much later and now seems to be the preferred stop over for people in transit on this route. Woodlands is a simple restaurant with ample... More

Food is good certainly above average. I visited with my family. Service was with a smile. Atmosphere was good even though renovation was on. I would recommend this gladly.

This restaurant is situated in a very spacious compound with excellant parking space. However the food very much average. And I have noticed that the waiters focus more on the tourist taxi drivers than the tourist or other customers.
