If you like Tibetan food, this is the place. Right downtown on Main Street. The family that runs it are extremely warm and hospitable. Wonderful, fresh ingredients. Perfectly spiced. Excellent vibe.

Incredibly delicious! The vegetable dumplings were fresh and flavorful, and the potato dumplings were fragramt, substantial, and gingery. The pillowy bread was great dipped in the homemade hot sauce and duck sauce. The chicken curry was spicy and creamy, and the vegetable curry was good too. Definitely would recommend!!

A small cafe with great food and fair prices in Northampton. They specialize in Yak, which is a very healthy meat with a great taste. Somewhat unknown but sure to become sought after. The menu also has stews and pasta with chicken and meat, and the portions are properly sized.

Granted this was our first visit but given that it was such a disappointment we won't return. We had yak dumplings that were quite bland. The spicy dipping sauce was quite nice but the dumplings themselves needed some flavor. Fortunately, the the tiny garnish of nicely spiced cabbage/veggie mix gave our taste buds something to latch onto. The yak curry... More

My meat eater husband and myself, a vegan, both found something to eat. The portions were sized just right, perfectly seasoned and just absolutely delicious! Very healthy too with lots of fresh veggies with each dish.

I like the varied menu, with all items being tasty and nicely served. As a vegetarian, I found lots to choose from on the menu. Not expensive; I eat there with my family.

A friend and I stopped by on a whim looking for something new to try - we were pleasantly surprised! Wonderful service, clean, and absolutely fabulous food! The hardest part was choosing what to order - we wanted one of everything!

My daughter took me here for a Father's day treat. The mo-mos(dumplings like dim-sum) were delicious. I had the meat assortment assortment which included Yak, beef and chicken. They were served with a slightly spicy tomato based sauce. Iced chai tea washed it down and we shared a dessert of barley pasta and brown sugar, really good!

My wife and I go to Lhasa café for there great food. The service is always nice and attentive. The owner and family are always there to make sure you experience is good. The food is Tibetan food. So you will have a good selection of stews, soaps, and other Tibetan food. Always fresh and always good. Great comfort food.

Me and Mom went to this restaurant before a visit to the Parlor Room for a concert by Twisted Pine. The food was very good, and I finished off with the mango ice cream. The service was very good. There was a young female wait staff.
