Visited in April 2016. The chef cooks up an awesome variety of dishes. Must try: warm apple juice, mushrooms and desserts

I had the good fortune to eat at ZaSa several times during my recent trip to Bhutan. We stayed at the Khang Residency right next door and so access to this comfortable, well-run restaurant was particularly easy. What stood out was the freshness of the ingredients and the variety of the tastes/textures in the dishes I tried here. Vegetarians, lovers... More

A good meal can ease my jet lag and travel disorientation. A great meal can etch in my mind as memory to savor again and again. ZaSa is firmly engrained in my tastebuds memory

Came to Zasa twice for dinner and the food both times were tasty, well-prepared and a fun mix of bhutanese and fusion dishes. The dessert both times was simply outstanding. The restaurant is housed in a warm, cozy space but you do need to book as it is a popular location for travellers and do mention what type of food... More

Bit away from town. We stayed at peaceful resort so it's walkable. 3 of us cost under nu700. We didn't order any alcohol or soft drinks. Free water and deserts offered. Mushroom cooked in a way Noone can tell what are they we had to ask chef. Will recommend to people staying nearby. Best call check their opening time.

We had dinner and lunch on couple of occasions. The dishes were wholesome healthy and delicious. Some were fusion dishes. Service was first rate too. Highly recommend trying out this restaurant when you are in Thimphu.

This restaurant is really something of a fusion restaurant. It was the only restaurant that I've eaten at in Bhutan where each dish had a distinctive flavor. The blend of east and west in both vegetarian and meat dishes was excellent. While I would not rate Zasa a five on an international scale, it is by all means at the... More

My husband and I travelled in Bhutan for 9 days, and this was hands-down our best dinner. We ate the local Bhutanese meal (need to call and inform them before-hand). The dishes, as compared to other meals, were fab! Ambience wonderfully romantic and homely, and most importantly, the owner offered to drop us back to our hotel post dinner -... More

The place is difficult to find as there is no signage. It is right next to the Khang Residency hotel and looks just like someone's house. The place has great views, apple, peach and many other fruits and flower plants in their garden. Food is made fresh everyday to order. It is advisable to order ahead. We landed there for... More
