Yes - decent coffee is what we found here. We were in mid afternoon slump & desperate for good coffee. Our fabulous BMV guides took us here. We also settled into nice comfy lounges & good wifi. All the necessities.

Got to know about this café from our Driver and he claimed this is one of the best coffee place in Thimphu. Karma’s Coffee is located on the second floor of Zhamling Building on Phendey Lam When you see the general area and the building, you wonder how on earth a decent coffee shop could exist there. It’s not located... More

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.
