We were looking for a good vegetarian restaurant in Thimphu and New Grand was suggested by our taxi driver. We went with his suggestion and decided to have our dinner here.
The place was full of Indian travellers, could be because it's a pure vegetarian place and hence a preferred choice. The menu had quite good options. They do serve South Indian food too in the mornings.
Our order was taken fairly quickly but it took a while for the food to arrive. Long wait time (per Indian standards) is quite common in Bhutan though. Food was served fresh and hot. The taste of the food was good too. The best part was that they served wheat phulkas / chapatis in a casserole. Since we found this place decent we decided to eat our lunch too here the next day.
Please make sure you place your entire order (except rice which is always quickly available) in one go unlike in India where we order one course at a time.
They do accept credit cards with 3% extra charge on the total bill and you go to pay the extra charge in cash.
