On the way from Shillong to Cherrapunjee, on NH 40 there is a wonderful scenic place in Mylliem: The Soilyna Huts Restaurant . With mountains in the background, this restaurant is magnificent having windows opening to lush green fields of Shillong.
The restaurant has a big dining hall at the entrance and above the hall, there is a series of some small huts that add to the beauty of this place. All huts are installed with a fireplace and are decorated with beautiful lamps. These huts are great if you want to eat in privacy with your friends and enjoy the view of the mountains from the windows.
The restaurant offers Indian, chinese and Khasi cuisine. The quality of food is very good , service is great and the rates are very affordable.
We ordered: Chilly Potato, Masala Omelette, Kadhai Paneer, Butter Naan and Chilly garlic noodles. The food was delicious and service very fast. They can also get the meal packed for you if you want some eatables for your journey.
The restaurant interiors are beautiful and they even have an outside sitting area, if you want to enjoy a quick tea or breakfast in the sun.
This place is definitely not to be missed when you are in Shillong. This place doesn’t only satisfy your hunger for food but also provides a great treat for your eyes. Once you have had a meal here, trust me you would definitely want to come back wanting more.
