About Sao Aiom

There is no better way to appreciate the beauty of Shillong than enjoying the brilliance of its local food in the company of the amazing views of this gorgeous city. And one restaurant that promises you all this is Sao Aiom, which is a part of the Khasi-inspired boutique property, Ri Kynjai - Serenity by the Lake. It is a North-Eastern restaurant that offers a range of delicacies in Indian, Continental, and Chinese cuisines. When dining here, some of the must-tries are Jadoh (a meaty khichdi, made with rice and pork, shot through with turmeric), Do O Pura (a gentle-tasting dish of chicken in green mustard leaves and powdered rice) and the famous Cherrapunji chicken. Even before you get thrilled by the taste of all this delicious food, you will be totally in awe of this place for its amazing views of the Umiam Lake. The entire experience of dining amidst the woods that lead to the azure lake with a gentle wind blowing in your face is truly amazing.
