People at the restaurant are cordial, helpful and inviting. The service is fast with good food and you get varieties of local food to continental. My advice is to try Pork Ribs with rice and it comes with hot chili cheese. The best part is it is centrally located in Thimphu city.

You have to choice to sit indoor or outside terrace. We went there for coffee and sat outside, it's a cozy place. I checked their menu and they serve variety of meals from Bhutanese to American. It's a popular place as we sat outside drinking of coffee, we enjoyed watching both young and office goers going inside for their meal... More

Cozy yet very busy bar, easily accessible, lovely food, people who drank enjoyed it. All the items served were very good. A joint as good as any of the best ones in my place, Bangalore.

Good food, good variety of drinks. Visited during lunch hours. the place is very small and the tables are very close to each other. The place doubles up as a bar in the evenings. place is bang opp. the football stadium.

Thimphu doesn't have too many options for food lovers. The Zone has many varieties of western foods to offer in a cheaper price. Taste wise very good and we loved the ambience. A must visit restaurant in Thimphu.
