We skipped the cafeteria on the way up and stopped for lunch on the way down. It was a decent lunch, all vegetarian. You can go as many times as you’d like.

The food at Taktsang Cafeteria is delicious. If you like Bhutanese food, then you will enjoy the offering. And if you do not like Bhutanese food, they have several dishes to make you feel at home (and no longer hungry).
