After walking passed the restaurant several times and reading the reviews online. we thought we had to try it especially as we have never eaten Tibetan food. We loved it the restaurant itself is very cosy and we were lucky to get a table. The menu has a great choice we ordered several dishes to share. The couple who own... More

Fresh and delicious tibetan food, cooked with a great use of spices. Nice selection of curries, and momos (steamed tibetan dumplings) with vegetables/cheese or meat are great as entrance to share.

Had dumplings for starters, which were as nice as I've had in Chinese restaurants back home. The chili sauce that came with the dumplings was fantastic. The Spicy lamb stew was also great, and you get a massive bowl of rice with your meal. Very nice, cozy restaurant and quite cheap all things considered. Well worth a look.

Admittedly, this was my first time having Tibetan food, but I wasn't blown away. The food was fine, and the service was very good, but it seemed a bit under seasoned or just on the verge of bland. I wouldn't steer anyone away from this place, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it either.

I left this restaurant with a large smile on my face. The food was amazing, the staff was so kind to us, the atmosphere was cosy. The food seem to be relatively un-westernized, which is a good thing. I would pay another visit next time I'm in town.

Consistently great food, excellent service, cosy environment (a bit smelly but nothing that cannot be endured). We went there for more than 10 times, bringing friends or for a quite dinner & I definitely recommend the place!
