Village Voice's Description

It's a bit hard to find Phayul ("Fatherland") in Jackson Heighs, but once you reach this devoutly Buddhist restaurant (a Dalai Lama shrine is the principal décor), you'll find yourself in culinary bliss. The Tibetan fare skews toward the Sichuanese (no kidding!), apparently since that province hosts many Himalayan expats. As a result, choices like tongue salad, braised bean curd, and chicken with bean curd are littered with Sichuan peppercorns, and all the better for it. But neither are Tibetan standards neglected, including luscious momos (big meat-or vegetable-stuffed dumplings), thenthuk (a pallid soup with wonderful ragged noodles), and gyuma (a homemade blood sausage). And don't miss the mung-bean jelly called laphing.

  • Serious Eats on 11/04/13

    Homey, friendly, and authentic Himalayan restaurant with a spicy array of noodles, soups, momos, and more.

  • Van S. on 02/18/13

    Some great gluten free alternatives! The shredded potato is an excellent example. One of the best healthy food options in this area!

  • Roopa K. on 07/26/11

    Spicy tofu dish is my favorite - tofu is perfect texture and sauce is flavorful and not at all greasy.

  • Eater on 01/07/14

    There’s blood sausage, meaty curries, the ragged noodles called thenthuk, and don’t miss the wiggly mung-bean jelly laphing, carpeted with Sichuan peppercorns. [Eater 38 Member]
