We had the pakora, momos, quinoa stir fry, and palak paneer, and it was all quite tasty. The chutney for the pakora wasn’t bad, but didn’t suit my tastes. It’s always good to find food that’s easily digested when traveling.

Stopped in at the Tibetan Kitchen for dinner after a recommendation from a friend. We had the special which I probably won't order again but only because I don't need the calories in the appetizers. But I will most definately go back for the dinner!...More

This is a great option for people who need a gluten free option. The local lamb curry was great and I liked that there was the option to have it w/ brown rice.

The Tibetan Shepta and curries are so good this restaurant is one of the few at which I don't leave food on my plate. It's a quiet spot - not touristy - and the owners and servers are so pleasant. The atmosphere is serene and...More

Food is made from scratch, including stocks made from local free range chicken. Lots of Vegeterian and Vegan options are offered. Born and brought up in North East India in a Tibetan family Pemba came to Canada in 2006 after working 12 years in the hotel and F&B Departments while working for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Pemba and her staff strive to to go above and beyond to satisfy her customers by serving only the best food with a smile. Menu is kept small and simple so it can be perfected, dining room is very simple with zen type of soft music at the background. Local wine and beer on tap are also served. Please come and enjoy food cooked with love.
