Free Wi-Fi and nice view on the road. We prefer however Seasons for the Pizza's and Pastas in Thimphu as their food just tastes better. However, Seasons is closed on Monday (so you could go to Upstairs for Pizza and Pasta on Monday, which is as good but offers better views from their outside balcony).

The restaurant looks nice from outside, but the food, especially the Pizza, is terrible. They don't have a proper Pizza oven and thus the Pizza is cooked only from one side.

The pizza was up to international standard, the service quick and friendly and the views over the mountains very restful. The space is also tastefully decorated - A very good place to relax and enjoy a good wholesome meal.

I asked for an all veg mushroom pizza but what was brought had meat toppings (I'm a vegetarian) and no apology whatsoever was given. I had to order another veg pizza (this time I clearly had to say NO MEAT TOPPINGS, NO MEAT AT ALL) and pay for the non-veg as well. I expected a lot when I first saw... More
