The restaurant is located on the first floor in Lower Sohra (Cherrapunjee) near the three road intersection after the petrol pump. They also offer accommodation for travelers though I'm not sure of the costs. The restaurant is run by a group of young and lively men and women who serve Indian, Chinese and a few other main course dishes. You... More

First of all it is easy to locate being situated at a junction. The place is clean and the food is good. Service is a bit on the slower side but that's ok, it teaches you how to be patient. The menu is extensive though very few items for vegetarians. Overall, a great place for lunch.

Avron is one of the best restaurants in Cherrapunjee and caters several items from various cuisines. For those domestic travelers looking for familiar Indian curries, this could be the best option. However, the service is extremely slow even when there are less customers!

But Cherra is an exception perhaps, here i have never seen any special room for cabby... More

Courting Indo-Chinese cuisine lovers. The richest curries and sauces taste like they've been simmering for 24-hours. The owner knows his food, and delights in feeding happy tourists. I'm a chili chicken and vindaloo lamb fan, can't go wrong, and our new backpacking friend from Switzerland felt the same. I have no exact idea where I was, but we had just... More

Me being vegetarian, had to tread carefully in Meghalaya. Avron restaurant was one such place where there were limited vegetarian options & I went for roti's & subzi. What was delivered tasted really spicy & good. For non-vegetarians, this place would be a haven!

The only notable and decent restaurant in the whole of Cherrapunjee, The food is just as good as any good restaurant in Shillong. Should try out the Honey dried pork. Its amazingly good.For hungry tourist visiting Cherrapunjee, its the only place to stop in for a good meal. It is very important to list this as it will help people know where to find someplace to eat in proper Cherrapunjee else they will have to travel all the way back to Shillong with an empty stomach.
