Dhup dhup is tasty!

We had lunch there. It was raining and no other customers there. We sat outside and had a Indian set menu ( paratha , butter chicken, curd, chutney) with beef dhup dhup and cold beer. I liked the dhup dhup. It's not so hot like other Bhutanese dish. With warm crispy paratha that was very tasty. We... read more

We had our lunch from this restaurant. I need not call it a restaurant it is more like a mess. The food was not bad however the place is little untidy and staffs are not that friendly. Unless you have no other option you dont need stop by this restaurant. Near to Musk there are couple of good Indian restaurants... More

We visited this place on 26th December 2012 and ordered Pork Manchow and Tee Momo set. Tee Momo was ok but the gravy was not hot and didn't taste upto the mark.We found strand of hair in pork manchow. The same was replaced after the complaint and we requested for Pork Thukpa, I must say have had the disastrous Pork... More

Food was pretty decent, but the best part of the evening was listening in on the conversations the locals were having. Worth stopping in, even if just for a few drinks.

This is your average Bhutanese restaurant complete with the chicken chopped up with bones. You bite into it because it is all chopped up and you think you will encounter soft meat. But no, you get bits of bone. I was there on Thursday where they had the Nepali thali: a big round polished metal plate with pickled vegetable, papadarm,... More

They have all cuisines, and have very friendly environment. I think the owner has many friends and they all come there only, which makes it appear like many groups there and all know one another. The football lovers always prefers Zone over this, and cricket lovers comes to Musk. Isnt that great how sports have found its own identity in... More

Had musk soup and veg chowmein - latter was a bit greasy, former was interesting. Nice place to hang out and watch the world go by if you get an outside table. Don't expect "Hi, I'm Tad and I will be your server for tonite"-type service - it's Bhutanese with all its charms and oddities.
