If you want to have a change from a normal Bhutanese food, try a burger at the Zone. Just located above the Football stadium in Thimphu it serves the best burger with french fries.

We went there for a simple family dinner and we never expected that it would be so wonderful for us. Food is pretty good, and I can easily call it TGIF of Thimphu. I went on a day when there was some big football match, it seemed to me that this place also enjoys loyal football fans. Its a must... More

I found this place very near to my hotel (Norbuling) in Thimphu during my trip to Bhutan. This place is nearby to the main Thimphu market. This place looks very simple from outside but once you are inside the things are very different, happening and uptown. The profile of the crowd are also very cultured & educated. Staffs are very...

Tried their chicken cheese burger. When it came I was a bit skeptical, but the taste was bang on. The atmosphere was great, with helpful employees. Funky ambiance. Hope to go again to see how people party here. Has wifi. Accepts cards. But their password still had 2016 in it, haha.

People at the restaurant are cordial, helpful and inviting. The service is fast with good food and you get varieties of local food to continental. My advice is to try Pork Ribs with rice and it comes with hot chili cheese. The best part is it is centrally located in Thimphu city.

You have to choice to sit indoor or outside terrace. We went there for coffee and sat outside, it's a cozy place. I checked their menu and they serve variety of meals from Bhutanese to American. It's a popular place as we sat outside drinking of coffee, we enjoyed watching both young and office goers going inside for their meal... More
