I simply cannot get enough of this quaint and charming Tibetan place. It is a very small restaurant and you will inevitably bump knees with fellow diners when seated but it is totally worth it. The authentic, Tibetan style momos, thukpas, beef, chicken and noodles are to die for. Since space is a an issue, sometimes you have to wait... More

This place is busy because it is good! We requested for less or no oil and it was promptly taken care of. We had chicken & egg noodles, rice (I think she forgot to add salt), chicken manchurian gravy. May be the only complain would be that pieces in gravy was too less. Price was decent.

With Family we went. Ordered soups, momos fired rice, noodles and some chicken dish. Momos and fied rice were good. soup was below par. Rest all were disappointing. Ambience also poor. Definitely needs improvement.

Mutton momos and Thukpas were delicious. The restaurant takes last order at 8:30pm, so be there well before as you can expect a queue

We decided to give the local hotspot a try and while the menu was extensive the taste didnt quite match up. This could have been overlooked if not for the a very unhelpful and discourteous hostess. We wrote our own order which was fine but when she reviewed the order she did not have the courtesy to advise us that... More

Dropped in for dinner today. Generous portion at pretty low prices. Tried steamed beef momos, mixed beef chowmien, chicken egg thupka and chicken fried rice. All the dishes were yummy. Service was fast.

The quantity and taste of the food is good. Nice ambience and a pleasant food joint. The food is worth for the money. Must try Fuyong , momos and fried rice.
