“Best Nepali food in town.”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

The stairs to the restaurant are terrible but the climb up the pretty grimy stairs is all worth it when the food arrives. I has to be the best Nepali food in Thimphu. And the price is very reasonable.

It is a must go to for me.

“Best Indian restaurant in Thimphu”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We had our lunch here. The food was really yummy!!! They serve a lot of punjabi and north indian dishes. South Indian dishes didn't taste as good as the North Indian ones. The restaurant was neat and clean. The staff were warm and friendly. Best place to have Indian food in thimphu

“surprisingly good food”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

We were on this tour to bhutan and had to fend for ourselves one day for lunch in the marketplace. Now, Thimpu, like any place else in Bhutan, looks a deserted place with hardly anybody on road (I am thinking Gurgaon in NCR where I live, so pl bear with me) and chances of finding any eating place in this one street simple market looked really bleak. However, we were assured by our guide that good food awaits if we could only get ourselves to climb 2 floors.
Must say that was asking a bit much from 55+ age group, that too after 4 hours of local sightseeing (including a exhausting walk in the zoo) but since there was no option, we slowly made it. The place is decent in size, with nearly 30 covers and it was nearly full with 2 big group of europeans. No one seemed to have time or inclination to look in our direction, but when they did, they did a spendid job with food and service. The food is essentially Indian ( safest to stay with this cuisine when on the streets). So keep a note about this place when you are in thimpu. Don't think there is any other place outside the many hotels where you can get a decent meal anywhere in Butan

“Nice Indian Food”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

We came across this restaurant thanks to Tripadvisor. It seemed like an oasis in the desert. The food was nice indeed and we even tried the thali for lunch which was sumptuous that day. Dinner was on a la carte basis but no complaints. Would recommend this place for people who long for Indian food in Thimphu.
