Such great reviews and such a disappointment. I guess we are spoiled by good food. We ordered chicken curry, spring rolls and dumplings. Wrapping of spring rolls was mushy, overcooked and something mushy and overcooked was inside. Dumplings were same as from the frozen section...More

After passing Tsampa on a food crawl over the summer, my wife and I told ourselves we would have to come back and try it. So one Friday night, when we didn't know where to eat, I told her to meet me there, and I...More

A simply amazing meal.... dined here on a Saturday evening and began the meal with an off menu appetizer- beef momo, the each dumpling had a unique blend of spice that melded with the beef and each dumpling contains a small amount of broth so...More

This place certainly has the flavor that it advertises, a typical home-made meal. While I cannot claim to know what typical Tibetan food actually is, the flavor of the baked noodles I ordered certainly tasted like a plate that was prepared just for me and...More

There is no shortage of good restaurants in NYC however this one is a favorite of mine in this price range. The ambiance was great and the food was very good. I will go back the next time I am in the city.

A good array of Himalayan food across India, Nepal and Bhutan set in a ambiance that is inviting. Good service. Do not miss the Himalayan Momos.

Tibet is indeed far and difficult to get to from most parts of the world. But you can have a taste of it right in New York City. The food is tasty and carefully prepared. The atmosphere is other worldly.

which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
