For somebody who loves to tickle his/her taste bud.... Bhutan Orchid Restaurant is the place visit and hog like a pig. They offer every kind of dish local as well as international.

If you try to find this restaurant all by yourself, good luck finding it withing 10 minutes, even if you are 10 meters away. the entrance is dark alley + stairs, which opens up to a well lit restaurant. Has decent food. We had indian food which was prepared well.

This was the first restaurant our guide took us too. We were worried on how the local food is going to be as we were really hungry. But we simply enjoyed the food. It was like a home-cooked meal. My husband who is not used to Asian food really loved it. Highly recommended.

Actually this is my first meal in Bhutan. My tour guide (lovely lady- Kin) has ordered everything before we go. I like the dried fish so much and very tasty. The famous dish in Bhutan is green chilli with cheese. It is spicy for me but still gave a try and it's not bad at all. The food there is... More

Good spread of bhutanese dishes. The food is authentic and tasty too. Thumbs for that!!!! But location of the restaurant is shady and can do better. The walk up the stair case is not easy and appetizing at all. In fact its appalling and dirty.

Near the town centre and at the top of a building. The walk up the stairs was a trial as the lift was not working and each floor seemed to get shabbier and shabbier. However, the restaurant itself was welcoming and had good views over part of the city - especially the floodlit sports ground. The food overall was probably... More

Of the many local restaurants we ate in, this was the best. It had some dishes the others did not. Because my wife has celiac disease, they brought us some additional dishes that were also very good.

The Bhutanese dishes served during our visit are very tasty. Among the few restaurants I tried during my 5 days in Bhutan, I must say that Orchid provides the best food (this is excluding the food that so tried at my friends' home). View from the restaurant is also quite nice because it is located at the top of the... More

Were brought here for lunch by our guide. Found the mini buffet on offer (no menu) to be limited in choice and remarkably unappetising. It was under some sufferance that we tried the red rice, noodle concoction, buckwheat dumplings, minced beef and a couple of in edible looking vegetable offerings. The tastelessness was partly relieved with some chili sauce. There... More
