The district's restaurants offer a number of options for food from Indian, Chinese, Continental to local Naga cuisine, however street food should preferably be avoided. Also while the cuisine is rich, colourful and adventurous in its non-vegetarian dishes, the choices are somewhat limited in case of vegetarian food.
Various preparations of pork, bamboo shoots, chicken are popular. Also, since Nagaland is a dry state, it might not be easy to find alcoholic beverages here, however a local specialty, Rice beer
is available and can be enjoyed at some joints.
