If you have had enough of the fat noodles that are over seasoned and in general not very good you should go an visit Merrins to try their chow.

The food is excellent and it has the right ambience for a quite evening out with friends or family. It has a vast array of dishes - the Mughlai dishes are superb. Overall, one of the finest places to dine in Shillong. Don't worry about parking.

Just visited yesterday with a group of frens yesterday. Food was ok. Fish fingers were burnt and very hard to swallow. Crispy veggies were extremely oily and soggy. Service was very slow.

This restaurant actually comprises of two. The smaller one own the road serves only Chinese, while the main bigger restaurant also serves both Chinese and Indian. My tip is if you are prefering Chinese, stick to the smaller restaurant, its got better chinese and well not so deep in your pockets too.
