“Try and avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

It seems that Bhutanese guides like to bring guests here....I can't think why!
The only point is the view, not the food which was both tasteless and tough.
The staff were grim and humourless.
Bhutanese guides do find another place!

A nice place to relax after the tortuous trek to Chimilakhang temple.The view is very soothing and the service is good.The food is ethnic Bhutanese.

“poor tasteless food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I have spent 9 days in Bhutana nd this place was the worst. The food was just aweful, tasteless, smushy. The ice cream has more starch than cream.
if you want to lose weight, go eat here.

“Well run and the food is good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you here you know already about the Bhutanese food for the tourist industry... there is only so much variety you can realistically hope for.. The Chimi Lakhang Cafeteria seems efficient, pleasant and the food is well cooked . Variety of soft drinks and the usual Bhutanese beer are available. The tables are pleasant, the nicest location being by the large window. The service is good. It is also a good starting point for a hike through the rice fields to the temple of fertility or browsing in Sopsokha stores including some nice souvenir places and the ever popular phallic store.
