List of pocket friendly food joints in Guwahati
1. Street Za
- In front of Akash bani, Chandmari Flyover, Krishna Nagar Rd, Chandmari, Guwahati – 781004
- Sewali Path, Hatigaon, Guwahati – 781038
Street Za is basically a food truck based at two locations serving Chinese fast food for a long time at a very cheap price. You should see the crowd near these two trucks around evening time when youngsters throng this place like bees. I personally love their double chicken roll, chicken momo, and chicken burger among other items.

3. Rigbyz Cosy Kitchen
Location – Opposite Sohum, GS Road, Bhangagarh, Guwahati – 781006
Now here’s a place that serves both Indian and Chinese Cuisine. They are a favorite amongst the new age crowd because of their Chinese items, especially the momos. Soft, succulent filled with meat they are heavenly. But here’s a twist, along with the classic steamed momos or Schezwan momos they have momos with an added Indian touch like butter chicken momos, chicken tandoori momos, etc. Also, the size of the momos is huge. And unlike the above two, Cosy Kitchen has a very small seating area and usually, you have to wait for a few minutes to get yourself a seat.

Here’s something for our vegetarian readers. Prem Cold Centre serves one of the best veg cheese momos in town which are even better than some of the veg momos found at high-end restaurants. The momos are loaded with cheese and it’s a deal with only Rs 60/plate and it makes Prem Cold Centre a pocket friendly food joints in Guwahati. The spicy chutney which they serve along with it is also very good with a hint of tanginess.
