I had to entertain several Bhutanese guests for dinner and was told by a Bhutanese friend that they would probably not enjoy the kind of restaurant that serves "authentic" Bhutan food to tourists. She recommended Musk, near the Clocktower in central Thimpu, and even called ahead to order our meal. Musk is a cheery little place that attracts local cognoscenti,... More

We had lunch there. It was raining and no other customers there. We sat outside and had a Indian set menu ( paratha , butter chicken, curd, chutney) with beef dhup dhup and cold beer. I liked the dhup dhup. It's not so hot like other Bhutanese dish. With warm crispy paratha that was very tasty. We had our food... More

We had our lunch from this restaurant. I need not call it a restaurant it is more like a mess. The food was not bad however the place is little untidy and staffs are not that friendly. Unless you have no other option you dont need stop by this restaurant. Near to Musk there are couple of good Indian restaurants... More

The same was replaced after the complaint and we requested for Pork Thukpa, I must say have had the disastrous Pork... More

Food was pretty decent, but the best part of the evening was listening in on the conversations the locals were having. Worth stopping in, even if just for a few drinks.

This is your average Bhutanese restaurant complete with the chicken chopped up with bones. You bite into it because it is all chopped up and you think you will encounter soft meat. But no, you get bits of bone. I was there on Thursday where they had the Nepali thali: a big round polished metal plate with pickled vegetable, papadarm,... More

They have all cuisines, and have very friendly environment. I think the owner has many friends and they all come there only, which makes it appear like many groups there and all know one another. The football lovers always prefers Zone over this, and cricket lovers comes to Musk. Isnt that great how sports have found its own identity in... More
