Came here for lunch after a local suggests it. I have never tried Tibetan food before. The place is small but cozy. The decoration is beautiful. The music they play is some kind of contemporary Monk incantation accompanied with instruments. It was pleasant but after...More

I would never rate a restaurant harshly unless I am confident in my review. As much as I loved the food, unfortunately, $15.00 was taken from my table by (most likely) one of the staff during my lunch buffet there. It's a small space with...More

Brought here by some friends who have been regulars. An excellent selection of Tibet food. Probably best to come with a few others so as to sample the various lamb, chicken and beef options. No problems.

First try and Tibetian, which ended up as a pretty nice find. Went with a friend and tried some dumplings, noodle dishes, and a few fresh juices. Not on a major street but good cuisine if you are interested in finding something different.

Really enjoyed my food and the atmosphere at Rangzen. Very reasonably priced as well. Similar to other Asian foods, but enough differences to keep it interesting.
