This cafeteria does enjoy the sky like view for travellers and don't have to worry on not having any packed lunch in their back. After hours of hike, you can feel fresh with snacks and tea and lunch of local menu too.

The only solace is the AMAZING view of the monastery from here and place to rest, with clean washrooms and plenty of tea/coffee. The food (lunch) was strictly okies, but was very expensive! Having said that, it was a boon, given that one hikes four...More

The Taktsang cafeteria is on the way to the Tiger's Nest monastery and has beautiful views of the monastery. However, the food options here are limited, probably because of the location of the cafeteria at the height it is at. The cafe is very expensive,...More

DONT BOTHER STOPPING FOR LUNCH at the "Taktsang Cafeteria" - the food is a disgrace. When I was at the cafeteria last week, food was presented bai maree style - cold and inedible. And apparently, this is not a one-off occurrence, it happens frequently.

The only stop for snacks and toilet on the way up and down Tiger's Nest. They serve coffee / tea / milk and some biscuits. Also standard vegetarian buffet. The toilet was average. They also have small souvenir shop.

Not at all recommendable. My experience was not good. Crowded. With very few choices. Only thing you can sit there for a while during your hike to the top.

Tell your tour operator Hell No if they suggest this place. It is nearly inedible, and since most Bhutan buffets are horrible, it says a lot that this is the worst.

This is a midway of the hiking trail to the amazing Tiger's nest monastery. The cafe offers an amazing view of the monastery. This is also the only place for tourists to relieve themselves and use toilets. The food is purely vegetarian. It is not...More
