Taste of Bhutanese cuisine

I liked the location and ambience. The surroundings are very quiet, at least in the evening. Dishes served were authentic Bhutanese, except that there was a tad bit more salt in some. Wait staff were very courteous and service was very good. Downside is that there is no option for mix and match... read more

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.

This restaurant is most ideally located which is next to Folk Heritage Museum and serves very authentic Bhutanese cuisine in the city. Professional works here and only limitation the restaurant has is that they need to have proper table booking.

We went for lunch to the Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant. They have two set menus, one which is basic for Nu. 300/- and the elaborate one for Nu. 500/-. We chose the basic menu. We chose to sit outdoors on thin cushions and a low table. To begin we were served with maize and Sud-Ja which is Bhutanese tea (salty).... More

Fantastic traditional food cooked and presented to the highest standards. Great atmosphere. The museum is a wonderful introduction to the Bhutanese way of life. The staff always try to give the guests that extra level of service.

It was truly a highlight for me and my colleagues, who landed here on a short notice but were still served a traditional and sumptuous meal in no time! A MUST go place! For foodies and non-foodies alike! It's housed inside a museum - so the historical context and the nice airy courtyard - are additional attractions! Still dreaming about... More
