A small place on the first floor along the main road of Paro town. Good tasty food, they removed the seeds off the chilies in the potato chilly bhutanese dish and this made it palatable and tasty. Also has Chapati and dal.

We ordered just a few basic indian dishes with us being the only customers at the time. It took them 60 minutes to deliver the order. Seems like a lot of reviews for this restaurant are fake

Is the highest rated restaurant in Paro I dont know why! The Datshi was watery and the food average. The worst Bhutanese food we had in a week when we only ate Bhutanese food!
