I had chicken curry with rice. One of the best curry and rice I had in Paro. The restaurant should do something about the flies.

It is a small little restaurant located in Paro main market. We ordered Indian and Chinese food which were delicious. I especially liked the owner, who is a friendly and helpful lady.

Bad food, bad service. They have pretty much nothing that I would have liked to try. They sure had all the Indian food.
