We ate here on a Saturday night as part of a group of 14 people during a tour of Bhutan. The restaurant is situated on the 5th floor of a modern building with an elevator for ease. The restaurant is modern and of the standard...you'd expect in any western city. We were fed a Bhutanese buffet which was excellent. They offer a good range of drinks including several Bhutanese beers. The place is popular which local people which is always a good sign.More

very disappointing. they took over an hour to get our food. The chicken was raw and the rice was smelling rotten. three of us shared one small plate of mushrooms and left. I was rather surprised because I've never had bad food or such pathetic...service in Thimphu ever.More

I visited Benez with a Bhutanese friend for dinner. The restaurant is pleasant and the staff were friendly and our order was taken quickly, however the food took over 40 minutes to arrive even though there was only one other group of about eight eating...that evening. When the meal did come, it was really tasty. I had chicken in a chilli sauce. I would have marked it as very good if the service hadn't been so slow. It may have just been a one off and I would like to go again as the meal was good, so I will check future reviews.More

A bar and a very good restaurant on the 5th Floor with elevator of a new building next door to Le Meridien Hotel.

The setting is average. Choice of food is limited. However, it is quite attractive as a bar/pub. Typical drinkers club. Seems like every one knows another one.

Great atmosphere, Friendly owner. Good views over Thimpau. Only stopped for drinks. Not too obvious from the outside- on the top (5th) floor

I visited this place by accident- was looking for Lemongrass for Thai food, it was Monday & the restaurant was closed so I walked into Benez. Am glad I did. Benita was a pleasant young lady and served excellent chilli beef with veg fried rice,...in no time at all.More

Great ambience, offers nice aerial view of Thimphu city. There is a corner bar with a fairly good collection. Very tasty food and great hospitality. Good value for money.

Very tasty food, wide variety (chicken with peppers - something I will always remember) and most of all, great service. Premisses are very clean. Lovely, very hospitable manager. The restaurant was not very busy when I visited, thus was privileged to be served by the...chef herself. I had lunch as part of my Bhutan tour package and can only recommend this place.More
