    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.

    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.

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

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

    Definitely try the Tsampa Cake for dessert. It's delicious and so smooth in your mouth! Who knew barley cake tasted so good?

    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.

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

    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
