We were here in the afternoon for a quick bite and had a problem in the sense that all of us were strict veggies, but were surprised when we found and menu which had a decent number of veg options which were also served very promptly. Special mention about the Thupka and the Momo. really nice.

A small cramped up place. But they make the best momo I have ever tasted! Be it their cheese momo, pork momo or beef momo ... simply mouthwatering! !! A visit to bhutan is simply incomplete without a visit to Zombala.

After reading so many reviews about this place, I just had to try it out. It was pretty busy but we managed to get the last table. Didn't even wait for the menu and ordered for the veg & cheese momos. I have to agree with the reviews below, they were really delicious! Even the chili sauce that came with... More

this place has the good momos for sure but when it comes to hygiene... I won't be visiting again. flies sitting on my food. No space and it's all cramped up inside. Waitresses were unfriendly and including services

eveyone knows here you get the best momos (dumplings) in town. and everyone is right. the meat filling is juicy and tender. the cheese filling is tasty and soft. you can not change a winning horse. go for the momos and forget about the other things they may have. the tibeten owner is very particular in maintaining the quality and...

Agree with the consensus... great momos. Very limited food choice but a great place and reasonably priced.

If you like Tibetan fare, a visit to this quaint little joint is an absolute MUST ! We tried various versions of momos and beef and vegetable thukpa and just loved it...the service is also great ! The only downside might be that it is always packed and there is often a queue for getting to a table.

Enjoyed the famous Bhutanese snacks served here. This place is known for its awesome momos and i enjoyed eating them. A great place to enjoy Bhutanese snacks like the thukpa, momos etc.

We really had to find the place when we visited first time. It’s right opposite the seasons pizzeria (everyone on the street there knows) Probably the best beef momo’s in town. Always busy, so you just share a table with other people.
