Eager To Return

The food and the service was excellent. The price was reasonable. The atmosphere was relaxing. It is a place to go if you want good food and be able to hear your friends conversation at the table. The owners are delightful.

Visited for lunch on recommendation of a couple of friends. Had the beef fried rice for $14. It was outstanding and indeed one of the best versions of this I've ever had. Serving size was big and arrived at our table very quickly. There were ample pieces of tasty thinly sliced tender beef and a cornucopia of fresh and tasty... More

I was in Victoria in late January on business. My colleague recommended this place for dinner so 8 of us made a reservation to try it out. All of us were very satisfied with the food quality and quantity. About half of the food on the menu seemed to have an Indian influence with many curry dishes and other familiar... More

Went last Saturday at 4:30pm and we were first in for the evening. Noticed that over half the tables had reservation signs. Wait staff knew the menu inside out - they had the time and took the time to help us with the menu. Many choices for those with special diets. Ordered the kale and onion rings to start -... More

I have to start by saying how good the servers were, they were very nice and attentive! Now, the food was amazing! There were so many different spices and flavours and it all blended perfectly! The samosas and the curry were on the spicy side, so watch out! I have never been to Tibet, but if this is what tibet... More

Our food was excellent - fresh vegetables and prepared in a healthy way. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and cheerful. And the prices were very reasonable. The restaurant itself is attractive and comfortable. We highly recommend.

The waitress was exceptional. She was really cheerful and quick and I suspect Tibetan to boot. The décor was very Tibetan and the photo of the monks laughing in the women's washroom totally made my day. The food menu was varied and we ordered 3 plates to share amongst three people. The food mostly all looked and tasted the same... More
