    Everything is amazing. But the serene romantic atmosphere tucked in a small street in the east village is what took me by surprise.

    The tsampa cake is very grainy so you might not like it if you are not used to the texture.

    The khatmandu aloo is by far the best app, especially if you like spicy

    Delicious Tibetan food. Some of the dishes are definitely "different" if you've never had them before.

    Butter tea (bocha) is delicious. Must try! Lhasa Momo is a tasty option for vegetarians like me. I will come back for a tibetan dessert one day.

    Make sure to ask how much things are before ordering. I was charged $2 for an extra piece of bread tonight. Food was good otherwise.

    Amazing Tibetan food. Everything I've i had has been good. Ask for the Really hot sauce, it's purple. Then have the Tsampa cake for dessert.

    Most relaxing, "zen" place to eat dinner. Try to get a seat in the back. Order as many appetizers as you can. So good.
