Assamese in Guwahati

The lunch thalis (₹280 to ₹525) at Paradise are archetypal Assamese spreads, bringing together a wide range of local culinary flavours on one platter. Try the subtly flavoured fish tenga (sour curry) and you’re bound to become a fan for life. There are veg and nonveg thali varieties, with the menu helpfully listing all the items they include.

It's a neat, spacious dining room, with framed prints and smart, red-jacketed waiters.
