Not impressed at all with the food and highly expensive considering the fare offered! The food was coldish, the service staff were unmotivated, the coke was flat ( an unforgivable sin in my opinion) and was realllly expensive. Seems like more a tour bus stop kind of place , not exactly a culinary experience.

The Bhutanese food and the service here were excellent. The location was also central. I would recommend this place.

This is a good place besides the Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant where foreigners can taste Bhutanese cuisines to suit to the palate of westerners.

I went there with a friend because basically, we were starving and saw that this restaurant was on Trip Advisor, decided to try it after shopping. First off, to get to the place you must go up several flights of stairs and there is no elevator (don't really mind, but just pointing it out). This restaurant is like a buffet... More

I visited Bhutan Kitchen one lunchtime whilst in Thimphu and I'm glad that I did. There were a mixture of tourists and locals (always a good sign) and the food was served buffet style. It was all really tasty and the place had a great relaxed atmosphere. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Bhutan.

This is a very good place if you want to have a taste of Bhutan. For vegetarians I will not advise to try Bhutanese, as really flavor of the local food is there in its non vegetarian cuisine. The price is affordable if you go for buffet. Otherwise you may find it little expensive.

Going well and truely justifying the name, Bhutan Kitchen is well known for its authentic bhutanese food. We really enjoyed the ambience, the food and of course, the traditional bhutanese drink - Ara that was served in a very traditional yet trendy bowl. Awesome experience and a must visit for all. Cheers!

It is ideally located in bazaar, having ample seating capacity, neat and clean. Best place to taste Bhutanese food. There is buffet system. Food is tasty having good quality. Only thing we dislike is a glass of cost 100 Nu. ie very costly.
