I got the meal as my expectation. But takes a lot of time for making food. So, If anyone plan to be there, take some times in your hand.

The restaurant is one of the best local ones in Paro. We had some amazing pork and chicken dishes there. Their speciality... Black Pork should be ordered at least 5-6 hours before your meal. Service was a bit slow because they prepared everything from scratch.
