Village Voice's Description

The Tibetan food here is excellent, and it's a happy reminder that New York is still, sometimes, a place where on-a-shoestring family restaurants can thrive. The menu nods to the country's Chinese and Northern Indian influences, but the best choices are listed under "Tibetan Specialties." Do not miss the homemade beef momos, which have a chewy, fresh skin; nip it open, and beefy broth comes oozing out; the ground-beef orb inside is flavored with ginger, garlic, and onions. Even better is the gigantic momo, called paysar momo, listed under the appetizers-it's the size of a softball and harbors an entire boiled egg along with spiced beef. The sha-baklap are also noteworthy: more of that garlicky ground beef gets swaddled in fresh dough, formed into a neat disk, and deep-fried. The homemade noodle soups are hearty-we especially like the thenthuk, full of confetti-like, hand-torn noodles in a milky broth.

    Love the veggie momos and veggie thali. The veg thukpa soup is great too--homemade noodles!

    Cheap, friendly restaurant with excellent Tibetan food. Vegetarian-friendly.

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

    Chili Chicken is a must have

    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.
