It’s a mish mash of Chinese, Indian with a splash of Bhutanese. Best to avoid and definitely not worth the price.

This is a place tourist guides will take you after a morning's sightseeing. It's neat and clean, but the food just about averages okay.... It's the usual Bhutanese fare. But more so the staff are rather stiff upper lipped and non too helpful. It takes...More

We had the tourist lunch with the same dishes as most other buffets in Bhutan: garlic chicken, rice, mixed veg, stir fried noodles, fiddleheads.... It was barely ok but nothing too memorable. On a positive note, the restaurant is clean, western washrooms (with toilet paper)...More

Great place to eat with families or friends. I went there to have my lunch and the food was delicious and they use mostly locally grown vegetables. Clean place and great service.

Neat and clean inside the restaurant. PUnakha is a remote part of Bhutan and don't expect the Taj out here. We had a quick fairly reasonable lunch which the hostess made for us all vegetarians .

Lonely planet had listed only this place for Punakha and had mentioned it as the best one in town. But the experience we had was quite the opposite. It scarred my previous experience of the incredible Bhutanese hospitality. I could totally swear off Lonely Planet...More
