Great sandwiches, coffee and cheesecakes. Moreover the USP of this cafe is the warm cozy English pub ambience. Great location, bang opposite the stadium.

Sadly, I can't tolerate hot/spicy food, so I was delighted to have our tour guide surprise us with a stop at The Zone for pizza. Every type they brought out was delicious.

quite small dining area with lots of options for both drinks & food, anything we tried there was amazing, and true to the authentic taste. the burger patty was very crispy and quite delicious to eat.

The zone is one of the best tavern/pub type places in Thimpu. You gotta try the Yak burger and some of the local brews.
