A good stopping place between towns

When we were there it was jam packed but the buffet held up to the challenge. Great wait staff and good views. Clean bathroom.

Great position for this restaurant on Punakha Valley. Staff extremely nice! the place is very clean and the food, typical bhutanese, is good! We had red rice, cheese with chili, spinach, chicken and vegetables,and all was very tasty and good. It's a turistic place, coming from Thimphu after Dochula Pass, but is highly recommended?

We had lunch here twice with a group and it was always nice and fresh food, much less oily than in most other restaurants. The place was also very clean and interior design is nice. Clean restrooms too.

The food smelled and tasted good and the service was great because of a very attentive owner. Otherwise of course it is the usual buffet style Bhutanese tourist cuisine so one has to be realistic in their judgement.

Much of the food in Bhutan is fairly mediocre but the ‘Village Restaurant’, although still offering food buffet style, serves freshly cooked dishes that have been prepared in small batches and replenished quickly when necessary. This is a far cry from other restaurants where food is... More
