Having never tried Tibetan food, we were really impressed with our meal. The atmosphere is nothing fancy - simple setting with some cultural décor - however, the food was well presented and delicious. They even specify items on the menu that are vegan! The food was similar to Thai and Indian, but had slightly different taste. Our waitress was so... More

This was our first experience with Tibetan food. It was similar to Indian food. It was really delicious and the service was great (even though there was only one waitress). It's not cheap, but well worth the price.

While on a short vacation to Victoria, four of us visited this charming small restaurant on the recommendation of a family member who had enjoyed the place before. All our dishes were well prepared and interesting. The momos and samosas were especially yummy. I definitely recommend Tibetan Kitchen and would go there again in the future.

Unusual (to me) food, well presented. Serene atmosphere. Lovely gracious server. Serving sizes were a little larger than expected but we were happy to take the leftovers. we will return.

I've been going for some time, and there seems to have been some dips in service and quality, but they're back to their normal high standards now. For those with allergies, it is nice to find a restaurant that is dairy free, and has many gluten-free options. I love the momos :)

I used to come here for lunch quite a bit and thoroughly enjoyed the food. My husband and I came with another couple using a Groupon last year and enjoyed our dinner. We finally came again last night and were totally shocked by the difference in quality and the high prices. The watermelon salad was $13 - so my expectations... More

We went with friends who chose this place and were pleased with the food, though it was not at all "over the top" as we had expected. We had the Shepka, chicken version and our friends had various curry based dishes - they liked the hotness level they ordered, my wife and I were pleased with our varied levels of... More

We lived in Victoria for 5 years and never found this place, but were introduced to it by a friend. The meals are reasonably priced and flavorful. We would recommend the daily special, as it is inexpensive an very tasty. (Hot - spice wise - is not HOT, so if you like spicy food go all in). The watermelon salad... More

Have had lunch here more than once, and recommend it to all our visiting friends. The restaurant offers a rare local opportunity to taste something different. A nice selection of Tibetan and curry menu items are offered. I could fill myself up on the Tibetan Momas alone. This place is always full for lunch, so come before the lunch crowd... More
