We went there for evening snacks. The place is small. The service is good. The snacks and the tea we had were good. Their local tea variant called Suja was very good. The food price is low.

We normally try local foods while touring. However, my teenage son wanted to try the Pizza as the restaurant was just beside Shantideva Hotel where we were staying. So we decided to try. We tried the Utpal Special Pizza, just substituting beef with pork sausages. It was excellent. We all liked it. Those serving are also helpful and gentle. The pizza had ample amount of cheese and loads of various veg and non-veg toppings without any extra cost and a free Thumsup (can opt for coke too). We all liked it very much. The restaurant also serves some Bhutanese, Tibetan and Indian dishes. Compared to Bhutan, the price is very reasonable for the large size

Simple perfection.Ambiance of the simple momo joint it is, everything was truly delicious. Went here after searching for the momo house from the Anthony Bourdain episode and were completely happy with everything about this place. Delicious, inexpensive,easy to understand menu. If you are looking for us in Thimphu, we are probably here eating some more of these bad boys.
