Astha Saikia (FoodLust)
I ordered the non veg akhaj which included plain rice, yellow dal, black dal, khar, leafy vegetable fry, veg anja, chicken khorika, chicken gravy, pitika, kharoli, pani tenga, home made pickle and kheer.
I loved the food here, totally worth every penny. So many delicacies for just Rs 245. The mutton dishes here are amazing as well.
I highly recommend this place to everyone.
This place is definitely a first when it comes to authentic assamese food.
Khorikaa is my no.1 Destination for pork thalis in Guwahati because it's easily accessible and everytime I visit Guwahati, I eat there a minimum of two types. The pork thali is love ❤️( apart from one night when I received only fats in Curry and Smoked dish). You don't need to order anything else if you order Thali, it has everything you need. The service is average, sometimes there's a delay due to the crowd but they try their best.
Not a very fancy restaurant, but a humble, down to earth place frequented by locals regularly. I went there for lunch on a working day and was pleasant to surprised to experience full restaurant! A waiting of 15 mins on a Thursday afternoon. School children, working people and simply hungry folks including me (a completely clueless person) were definitely waiting patiently for some authentic khana.
Thalis after thalis were being served. Potions looked great. I order a bowl of rice, sesame pork and pigeon chilly fry.
Didnt know what to expect from the pigeon but was surprised that it actually tasted great!! The pork curry was green from mustard leaves. I just dug in with my fingers, sleeves rolled up. The distinct flavor of the fresh mustard leaves were welcome!!!!. I simply loved it. Oh! I dno this ladys name that suggested the dishes, but so helpful and humble, if ur reading this, u know who u are.
Try it out if u want to check out authentic Assamese flavors without robbing a bank.
Damage was 605 rs and it sufficed for two.
It was my first time at khorikaa. I reached here at 3:55pm one fine sunday, just 5 minutes before they were closing the kitchen and quickly ordered a no brainer- pork thali. Every single thing that they put on the thali were delicious. They gave two kinds of pork: barbequed and curry. Yum yum yum. I enjoyed it, my family and friends enjoyed it. Will I visit again? Definitely yes. Will I recommend this place to anyone? Yes ofcourse. Liked the food? Loved it. Happy tummy happy soul.
A good place for some authentic local cuisine. Service is a bit slow but that’s ok since it gives you time to have a conversation! Mostly always packed so plan on an extended time frame. Recommended 👍
We went for a trip to Arunachal Pradesh in may 2019. We started off with Guwahati from where we would go to Bhalukpong and onwards. We had heard about this place and planned to have our lunch here. The place is situated in the heart of the city. We ordered the non veg thali first. It consists of steamed rice, yellow dal, black dal, green leafy vegetables curry, two mixed veg curries, a rohu fish preparation, two local fish preparation, churney, papad, curd and pickle. The thali itself was a wholesome meal. But we hungry souls also ordered a pork dish and a chicken dish. Each and every food item was delicious. Staff were so friendly. Ambience was pleasant with traditional Assamese decor. Prices were okay. Nice experience.
Was in town for work and had about an hour for lunch. Decided to eat in Khorikaa as Zomato said some authentic Assamese food is right here and I was standing barely 200 meters from the place.
Went in and it appeared to be a simple place with the familiar chairs, and tables “Hotels” of the past.
The Large “Xorai”, The offering tray with a stand at the bottom (one of the traditional and respected symbols of Assam used in felicitations too) at the billing counter drew my attention. It looked lovely.
Wanting to try some veg this noon so ordered bhaat (rice), Aloo pitika (Local version of a potato mash), Yellow dal and Koldil bhaji (A dry preparation of banana flowers)
The rice was steamed well, daal was good and the Aloo pitika was great. freshly done, the flavors of the chili and onions in it was awesome.
The Koldil bhaji is the best I have ever had! In fact, it was so good that I did not want to order any non-veg for the fear of interfering with this flavor!
The best Koldil bhaji ever! The earthy flavor of the dry koldil with potatoes fried in it was just terrific.
Service was average. Had to call them a few times and though just 3 tables were occupied, the pace with which they operate is kind of a slow motion. even for the bill I had to ask twice. A led down for a place that serves some authentic food.
The price is reasonable.
This place is Awesome af. Let me give u a suggestion, dont take the thali, go for ala carte items. They will not disappoint you. We generally go there in a group of more than 10 amd been there more than 5 times in the last 1 year. We tried several items and loved those. Whenever we think of a party, Khorika for assamese cuisine or Barbeque Nation for North Indian.
