The Dochula Restaurant is located atop the Dochula pass and has a semi-circular glass enclosed sitting area apart from outside sitting and toilet facilities. The restaurant offers a buffet service as well as ala carte menu with varied food items. We had lunch - chicken curry & rice and topped it with a pancake-type dessert & coffee. The view of... More

A restaurant at the most beautiful location in Punakha, Bhutan, i.e., Dochula Pass. Can't say much about the food as we just enjoyed our tea-coffee at the place but definitely a well maintained restaurant. You can enjoy a much needed break at this place. A place worth it.

The food was not memorable, but adequate. Very pleasant dining room. There is a very nice, but very expensive gift shop with high end Bhutanese art work.

Our group had a pre-arranged breakfast buffet at the restaurant after spending time walking around the pass. The breakfast was good with a lot of different options (we had vegetarians with us who were provided good options as well). We enjoyed our time there as well as the service from the staff.

I went when there were just 2 other tourists apart from me. Since am a vegetarian there weren't too many options for me. The hotel staff is slow and they had to hunt down the cook so he could cook me a simple vegetarian meal. However once the order was placed the meal was quick to arrive. If you are... More

You should enjoy the warm local dishes sitting on the terrace of the restaurant. The snow cap of the Himalayan ranges are often visible (in case of clear sky) from the open space in front of the restaurant

This was our first restaurant arriving from Paro airport as we were enroute to Punakha directly so had to pass Dochula. The day was foggy so we could not see the Himalayan peaks. (We had a return trip and had better luck with weather that later day) Food was served as a buffet which we soon learned was universal way... More

We stopped here for lunch on the drive between Thimphu and Punakha. When the clouds and the weather is in tune October and November) one can see a whole range of snow capped peaks of the eastern Himalayas. The food here was probably the best I had in Bhutan! In addition, if you are in to shopping for genuine Bhutanese... More
