Although it was pretty difficult to find (it isn't near the ferry port it's near Santa Cruz Basilica) it was worth the search. It's a fairly scruffy little place but all that's forgotten when the food is promptly brought out. We had beef momos in soup (20 pieces), non- veg Thupka, roast beef and rice and a cutting roll. The bill was less that RS600 (£6). The girls that served us sang happily as they prepared the meals and had lovely smiles as they served us. All in all, it was so worth tracking down.

Yes the actual Restaurant is hard to spot and yes the interiors leave a bit to be desired but the food and the friendly service make up for it. Tried the momos which were great and tukpa which was a really good noodle soup with good mild flavours. Will definitely keep going back to eat my way through the rest of the menu.

A small but amazing food joint, the Tibetan Chef 's Restaurant, is situated near the Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica church at FortCochin. It is 70meters from the main road (K.B.Jacob Road) as it curves in front of the church. A Kathakali Center board too competes for attention at the begining of the 70 m lane, which comes on the left hand side, as you stand facing the Cathedral.
Run by a Tibetan family, they ve set the simple ambience with Memoralia from Tibet. The Thupka and Momos are the highlight of the place. Food is very tasty. Good quantity and value for money.
To note, since it is a small family run place, if you reach there little too late, you might be disappointed to know they ve run out of some of the items on the menu.
