This restaurant is hard to find but well worth it. It was the best meal I had in Thimphu over the entire month of my stay and I visited many.

I had the pleasure to eat here three times, 2 dinners and one lunch. This was the best food throughout my 10 day stay in Bhutan. The staff are very friendly and the host is extremely charming. I will go back! and I urge anyone who visits Thimphu to go there too.

Eating in Bhutan without this experience would be something you would regret the rest of your life. The food,atmosphere, and service is THE BEST IN THIMPU NO...in BHUTAN! Do not miss the opportunity!

Great outdoor space where they had a bonfire and nice appetizers. Some couches indoors and plenty of long tables which was great for our group of 50 people. Owner Yanki was very accommodating.
