On the way yo Chimi Monastery its a nice stop for your lunch or tea for any kind of various menu. Call before arrival..so that the resturant will be waiting for until you arrive. Otherwise great view from the place towards the village upfront..

This cafeteria is located at Mestina village. Enjoyed delicious authentic farm food. Taste of Indian cuisine, spicy. I didn't expect I could have my favorite ice cream served here. While enjoying lunch here, the beauty of terraced rice fields also caught in sight.

It is a restaurant where you could do time pass by having a beautiful view of the temple of madman,and you have a selected menu lunch or dinner or snacks. It is an average restaurant with decent toilets.

We were a group of 18 and visited this restaurant en route from thimpu to punakha. The food was without any taste and expensive, given the quality of it. The lady incharge of the outlet is outright rude. Avoid, if u can.
