This place is in route to Cherapunjee. I found the food here to be one of the best meals I had while I was in Shillong. The service was a little slow but was worth the wait. This place has no mobile network though. The view around the place is very scenic...so do enjoy the smae

It was a quaint cottage-like restaurant with lodges and tents for night stay. I liked the decor and the outdoor landscape as well. The legend and history of the place add to its allure. The food was good as well.
