Great service great food

The best on the street. The lady from there is the best guest ever. Food is also tasty, and the prices are OK. I have been there 4 5 times. This is that kind of place where you want to go more times until you eat everything they have in the menu.

We were staying in a hotel across the street and wandered in one evening looking for a meal. Not a large restaurant but nicely cooked food. Wouldn't hesitate to try anything here. Nice flavours. Good service.

It was the first time we've tried Tibetan cuisine and it was a very good experience. The restaurant is quite small and simple but the food is very tasty and the service friendly. Would definitely recommend it!

I found this restaurant in a hurry and was pleasantly surprised. It was small and unimposing, yet the service was quick, friendly and our waitress explained exactly what we were enjoying. The food was interesting, and even though I am unable to speak to its authenticity, I enjoyed most of it. If anything, the main courses were a bit bland... More

I came here because I was craving momo's (Tibetan dumplings) and I wasn't disappointed. The food (momo's and no- momo alike) was good quality and great value. Everything was simple but really really tasty. This is good, honest food, in a cozy setting. The service was also really friendly too. I will definitely come back here.

Went There a Sunday and had one of the 2 person meals with a starter and 3 different main courses, followed by a cup of Tea. Really great tasting food with the picture of Dalai Lama on the wall. Besides this, the vaitress was very kind and helpfull, and we did not Pay too much either:-) Recommendable👍☺
