    Good, but not stand in line for 30+ minutes good. Recommend momo combo or if you want just one kind, get the beef momos.

    Loved the pork chili and the hot sauces are incredible! The thalis will get you great variety for a lower price.

    This place is a must if you're into tibetian/asian food. Never had so many delicous tastes at the same time. Very friendly staff. Worth more than just one visit.

    This place is amazing. Extremely small and intimate. Arrive 20 minutes early so you can leave your phone number and grab a drink down the street.

    Beef Momos: "A plateful of these spicy, thick-skinned Himalayan dumplings is well worth a jaunt out to this friendly Ditmas Park hole in the wall." Read more

    One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants! Love sitting outside and siping butter tea. The curry noodles are a fave too and beef momos. Byob too which is a plus!

    Chow Mein may not be the most adventurous dish but I'm hooked on Cafe Tibet's smoky version. Share it with Beef Momos and some vegetables on the side.

    Truly the best Cortelyou has to offer. Bring a bottle of wine and forget your impatient attitude. You want fast service? Go down to Coney Island Ave, make a left, and follow until you hit McDonald's.

    Jay Casey · October 6, 2013
  • Meredith P.

    Don't let the awful service turn you away, this place is amazing!

    Meredith Pharis · September 29, 2013
  • Deb W.

    The Tsam-Thuk soup is superb, as is the butter tea

    Deb Wunder · September 14, 2013
  • Dmitri R.

    I feel like sitting outside writing, maybe having a conversation and being stimulated by ambient street sounds, passerbys, the rumble of a subway car below and the café's music all at once.

    Dmitri Russell · September 6, 2013
  • Christina C.

    Butter tea. Period.

    Christina Celleri · August 28, 2013

    Cheap, friendly restaurant with excellent Tibetan food. Vegetarian-friendly.

    BYOB! But not good for large groups.

    Alex B. · June 9, 2013
  • Micah M.

    If you're looking for cheap eats on Cortelyou, this charming cafe is a must. The kitchen closes at 10:30.

    Micah McKelvey · June 3, 2013
  • Ravish M.

    Get the Veg. Thali! Great bang for your buck, and delicious too!

    Ravish Momin · May 24, 2013
  • Netsirk

    For drinks, get a Tibetan iced tea or a butter tea!

    1) it's cash only. So leave the credit cards home. 2) you can bring your own bottle of wine for your meal.
