“Typically Assamese”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

To one who has stayed in Assam for a while, there are no great surprises. There is a new branch of this restaurant at Six Mile, whose experience I narrate.
1. Maihang proclaims itself as a Northeast specialty restaurant. Only a couple of items in the menu are from elsewhere, the rest is Assamese. Surely the other 6 states of Nagaland, Arunachal, Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur and Meghalaya also have their own cuisines ? Liar, liar.
2. The decor is good, all done up with wood and bamboo. Wood ? Is that eco-friendly ?
3. One of the pork dishes had three options, of which I chose the lemongrass preparation. When it arrived, there was no distant whiff of lemongrass. Cheat.
4. The preparation of a vegetable thali and this pork dish took 30 minutes. Looks like they started with thawing the pork and chopping the vegetables.
5. The crescendo. When the bill arrived, they had discreetly increased the base price compared to what was printed in the menu. When pointed out, they decreased it, but still charged the vat and taxes as per the earlier amount ( charged as a percentage of the sum of basic pricing.) And they conveniently disbursed with returning the change.

Final opinion - truly Assamese. Never step into this state without a tour operator from your own place- every expense pre-paid.

“Maihang, good asamees resturant”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

If u want to taste asamees food do indulge in traditional asamees thali. it contains different veg curry, 2 types of dal and kheer also. it charges Rs 130 for such a nice thali. Besides that u should try mutton curry which is one of its asamees delicacy. its entirely different than usual mutton curry but brilliant in taste. u may also try fish khorika which is grilled fish with asamees spices. if u like pork it has a preparation with bamboo shoot. its brilliant. so if u at guwahati and want to indulge in asamees delicacy its a must place to visit

“Guwa Hearty !”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

In my opinion, this place is the epitome of true north-eastern cuisine. I tried mustard green stir fried, banana flower stir fried, black daal, boiled rice and red rice kheer (dessert). The chef was quite cooperative and will to accommodate our request for an atrocious amount of spice in our food. This place is a Lonely Planet recommendation. I loved the food so much that I could not resist visiting this place once more before leaving Guwahati
