Eating and drinking

Tezpur has a handful of restaurants. KF has a cool modern feel and a quality menu, featuring veg and chicken burgers, pizzas, and Indian and Chinese favourites, including some tasty prawn curries (Rs90–165), plus an attached ice-cream parlour, cake shop and bar. Chinese Villa, on the second floor of the Baliram complex on the corner of NB and NC roads, 300m northeast of the bus station, has huge windows, stained-glass panels and red hanging lamps. Although there’s a separate Indian menu, opt for the Chinese dishes (Rs70–130), such as barbecued lamb. Downstairs, Veggie Foods is an informal, wallet-friendly place serving dosas and thalis (Rs15–35).
