Suffered through many days of mediocre coffee and butter tea until I found this place. Super friendly service, I asked for a banana cake, and the lady asked if I wanted the largest piece. I was totally sold. (But the banana cake, as with most food in Bhutan was not as flavourful)

Very average burger. Standard frozen patty was used. Bread was a bit crumbly. Someone was having a loud video call which i felt management could have asked not to.

Karma's Coffee is one of the few places serving fresh coffee in Thimpu. The cafe is a bit hidden from the main 'town centre' and might be tricky to find. Having said that, be on the look out for signboards. It is located in the upper floor of a building so you have to climb up some steps. Inside, the... More

Nice place to chill out with wifi provided. However need to improve in the quality of food served. Eg spaghetti is too dry.. toast is too hard.

Serves delicious coffee, snacks, and meals. They also have a meal of the day, mostly Bhutanese dish. My favourite is Fish & Chips. Besides, they provide fresh watermelon and papaya juice. A big public parking space is being built very close by and it would provide enough parking space for the Karma's Coffee customers as well as for other hotels... More

After searching for it nearly 35 minutes found the place. Lovely decor, welcoming staff, good wifi and above all the finest sandwich and coffee that I have had in a long time. Recommend people not to miss it.

I was a bit tired of weak and bland coffee served in Bhutan wherever I visited but you can savour strong flavoured coffee at Karma's coffee like the one you sip every morning if you are from Western countries. It was just tea break with my tour guide and driver, so we had only coffee and banana smoothie. Coffee: 110... More

This is by far the best coffee joint in town. Mr K cares about his coffee and it shows.......It is as close to a London coffee shop as you can get in Bhutan.Nice food too, I thoroughly recommend it.

Thank William T
