“A little delicious and cozy place ...”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Traveling and exploring a new place is always exciting, yet nothing is more comforting than having a place where one can go just about any time, for a bite to eat, several cups of masala cha (tea), or anything you can think of home-made, decent Indian, Nepali, Tibetan food, topped off with a bit of south American touch from Chili. For the wine lovers, a nice and affordable bottle of Chilian wine, taste some Pisko (a fruit-flavored Chilian whisky), or my own invention of mixing it in the masala tea ... The owner has such a big and fine heart for Shangri-la and just anyone who comes through or to rest here. He takes you as friend and makes you feel like home in no time ...

I have truely enjoyed eating there, spending a lot of time watching sun moving its shadows outside, drinking endless tea, meeting new friends with their own adventures, and chatting with a rich-lifed owner as well as his friendly staff.
While on the road, this would make fairly a good place both for one's mind, and stomach.

“Great Atmosphere, even better food!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We love Tantra Restobar! We always go to get great indian food in town. Their samosas are awesome and great with the curry. Everything is super fresh and the service couldn't be friendlier.

My personal favorite is the Indian Masala tea. Authentic, made with a milk base.

“Coffee, Crackling Fires, and Cool People”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Tantra Restobar is a wonderful, homey resturaunt nearby Shangri-la's old town. I went with my Colgate University study abroad group and we were welcomed by Ricky, a warm fireplace, and delicious Indian and Nepalese style food. I greatly enjoyed the broccoli and garlic sauce dish, the excellent and fast service, and steaming cups of coffee and tea. I had a great conversation with Ricky, got warm by the toasty fire, and overall had a wonderful time. The next time I go back to Shangri-la I will definitely eat at Tantra Restobar!
