Simple unlimited Bhutanese buffet at lunch time is the thing to go for here. Good place to sit down, relax in between your journey, and enjoy the views while having lunch.

Fantastic view, excellent service, definitely the best dining experience in Punakha for us. They understand the definition of service exceedingly well. Try their cheese momos.
