The setting of the Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant is rather inconspicuous. One would not necessarily know that a restaurant is hidden behind the wall when approaching the gate.

A good place to visit if you're looking for the true taste of Bhutan. Most dishes served in a traditional way, so a nice choice to go as a group.

The folk heritage museum has a set bhutanese menu which is easy on the wallet and oh so tasty. Wish we had more time as we would have loved to go back for more meals.
