      Uma Paro Restaurants

      At Uma Paro, our approach to cuisine is modern, light and respectful of local nuances. Menus revive traditional Bhutanese offerings as well as offer contemporary interpretations of neighbouring cuisines. These include Indian dishes from the charcoal tandoor oven. The experience is nourishing, relying on fresh produce grown in the surrounding region, from hand-churned butter, to wild mushrooms and honey. All this can also be enjoyed on room service menus. We also offer classic comfort dishes from pizzas to burgers. Uma Paro works with a local farmer in the Paro Valley who maintains the hotel’s market garden. This means you enjoy the freshest produce, brought from field to table with minimum delay.
