  • Must order the pan fried momos!!
  • If you're a fan of the savory, try the Bocha Himalayan tea. It's basically a salty bitch slap.
  • Chili Dofu was phenomenal!
  • Chasha Shamdey is exceptional
  • a little hidden gem on East 1st street. Great lunch special and excellent authentic tibetan food.

  • Really delicious and surprisingly cheap. Get the dumplings (momos) and chili dofu
  • This spot is great for vegetarians. Definitely try the Chilli Dofu, it's delicious. It's no longer BYOB, but they have cheap beer and wine.
  • Momos , chilli dofu ,lamb curry , chilli shrimp are really good

  • scrumptious chicken dumplings and just a really nice place to be
  • Great chai. very cheap. nice people.
  • My favorite vegetarian dish is #16 Tsel Gyathuk Ngopa, which is sauteed noodles mixed with fresh green vegetables and tofu. Make sure you add the chili sauce that you get on the side.
  • Best Nepalese dumplings (Momo's) ever
  • Best momos. Chili chicken and gyathuk takpa were amazing. Top spot!
  • They serve the best momos on NYC.
