    Came in for something quick, probably the best but and sour soup I've ever had. Homemade, natural.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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