This little place was already packed with locals on the first night of the Thimpu Tsechu, and I prepared for a long wait with 5 other fellow travelers. However, upon seeing our foreign faces in the doorway, the locals immediately consolidated around the tight tables and assembled random chairs together to make a bit space for us. Of course they...

there were places where food, ambiance, choice of drinks etc were better. Zombala was just average but centrally located average, next to hotels I stayed. So it turned out to be the place I went to eat, not to collect one or another experience. It was somewhat dirty, the service was not too fast, there was no wifi but it... More

The beef Momos that we had were one of the best that I have ever had. However it is not one of the 'classy' eateries, so maybe if you are too concerned about hygiene better not try it out- you are not gonna miss much, just the best momo money can buy :).

A local from Thimpu suggested this place, luckily close to our hotel. Loved their Cheese and Beef momos. Veg Chowmein (stir-fried noodles) were impressive as well. They ran out of Pork momos, so maybe during our next visit. Only part which was strange that they didn't have/offer any menu card. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
