ENTRÉES - VEGETARIAN
Palak Paneer (Indian)
Fresh home made cheese cooked in ever so lightly spiced, blended spinach. Served over Rice
Kathmandu Daal Bhatt (Nepalese/Indian)
Very lightly spiced lentils served with Raita, over Rice. This is a staple base dish in Nepal and in India and heavenly with ghee (clarified butter) to add to the buttery taste

ENTRÉES – NON-VEGETARIAN
Lhasa Momos (Tibetan) 10 pieces
Available For Dinners Only. Momos are meaty Tibetan beef dumplings steamed in a flour dough wrapper. Served with our own special Yak and Yeti hot sauce. If you ever visit a Tibetan home, as a special guest, this is probably what you would be treated with for a meal
Coconut Shrimp Malai (Indian)
Shrimp sautéed in flavorful coconut cream sauce. Served over rice
Lamb Curry (Indian)
Marinated lamb curried in a slightly spicy(hot) sauce. Served over rice, with Raita. In general, sheep and goat meat are the tastier meats to cook in a curry because their flavors tend to complement the spices very well. Goat curry is a favorite of our chef’s and we hope to have it on our menu in the future
Spicy Goat Curry
when available. A favorite of our chef’s. Similar to lamb curry but stronger in flavor and Spicy
Chicken Tikka Masala (Indian)
Tandoor-barbequed marinated chicken simmered in tangy cream sauce. Served over rice, with Raita
Kalimpong Shapta (Tibetan)
Tasty stir fried spicy pork, Shapta is the Tibetan version of Buffalo wings and served with Tibetan steamed buns. Excellent with a chilled Coke or Alaskan beer. As in all good pork, good for Alaska and good for you
Tibetan Chicken Curry (Tibetan/Indian)
Cornish game hen cooked Tibetan style. Served over rice, with Raita. Tibetans, having lived in India for half a century, have either integrated Indian spices into their cuisine or tempered Indian cuisine. This dish is an example of the latter. Served over rice, with Raita
Pork Vindaloo (Indian)
By popular request we have introduced this dish which was brought to Goa, India by the Portuguese and made flavorful by the Indians. As originally created, this dish starts with pork marinated in red wine vinegar and then cooked in Indian spices. We are serving this dish with a heat index of medium but can bump it up upon request. Served over rice, with Raita
Keema Curry (Indian)
Ground beef and peas curried in mild spices. Served over rice, with Raita. This is not a dish that you would normally find in many Indian restaurants but we love the unique taste of this dish and would like to share it with you. Served over rice, with Raita
COMBINATION PLATES
Daal Bhaat and Shapta
Served over rice, with Raita. Tibetans living in India and Nepal have adapted their adopted countries’ cuisine to suit their own taste, generally by adding meat to the standard Indian/Nepalese fare. Daal Bhaat and a side dish of meat or meat with vegetables has now become a standard in many Tibetan homes in India and Nepal
Daal Bhaat and Lamb Curry
Served over rice, with Raita. Indians and Nepalese supplement their main meals with a meat dish and lamb curry is an excellent accompaniment to the daal bhaat base
DRINKS
Darjeeling Chai (Indian/Nepalese)
Classic Indian/Nepalese herb spiced Darjeeling tea with milk. Served warm or iced
Delhi Iced Coffee
Long before coffee became popular in the US, iced coffee was a big hit in Janpath, Delhi. Try our version of this refreshing drink made with Indian coffee
Lhassi (Mango or Strawberry)
Traditionally served in India with just sugar or salt, we have added mango or strawberry to this mouth cooling yogurt drink
Sodas
Pellegrino (23.5 oz bottle)
DESSERTS
Kheer (Indian)
Classic Indian Rice pudding garnished with nuts. Served chilled
Gajar Ki Halwa (Indian)
Delicious carrot dessert cooked in sweetened milk. Served warm

They serve some very well seasoned himalayan food. The pork sandwich and lamb gyro were both delicious. The seating area reminds one of a cafeteria in highschool.

my only complaint would be they need some fruit options, but their rice bowls are GREAT!! Love the yams and spinach and pork and chicken - oh, heck, love them all. They bakery items are also varied and a nice sweet treat.

This is small quaint restaurant with food that has big flavors. The lamb curry is tender and delicious and the pork vindaloo is robust. When in town I try to eat here.
