Not the best

The food choices were very limited given the location of this resort, though the rooms and the location makes up for everything else.

After a bumpy 2 hour road trip 8am take off from Thimpu, we arrived for a pitstop and tea break and had a wonderful view of the Himalayan mountain range- although not so clear as it was snowing. The thangka shop inside the resort was made by one of the best thangka artist of Bhutan -- from $400 to upwards... More

This lovely restaurant perched at an altitude of around 10000 feet is just the place you would want to be at after a freezing sunrise view. With fireplace and breakfast served amidst stunning views ...you would'nt want to leave the place. The washrooms were reasonably clean , and the restaurant was clean and warm .

Liked the large but cosy comfortable restaurant/café on a cold clear winter's morning. Being able to admire the stunning views of the eastern Himalayas with a hot chocolate.

Due to its isolated location near Dochu La, visitation to the hotel is often spotty and unpredictable. That explains why the service can be spotty. They do try to please, and the food is OK. If you spend the night here during the high season (winter), plan to have them serve you tea on the roof deck at dawn. Then... More

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
