This was a winner! Everything, top to bottom, was first rate. Momo were plentiful and tasty with a light wrapper. My friend and I both had Baklap; him the vegetarian version, me the meat version. The only reason I marked them down a half star is the the shell was a little charred. But the sauces and the overall food was amazing. Even the dressing on the simple salad, a sweet and tangy vinegar and oil based dressing, was a delight. OK, it did take a little while to get the food, but the staff was still attentive, refilling our water continually, and pleasant as could be. The decor is simple; prayer flags, quotes by the Dalai Lama, and photos of Tibet and Tibetans. I look forward to returning often enough to work through the entire menu!

The best restaurant in the hood, my favorite place in all of NY. You may wait a bit if it is packed because it is a small place but you cannot fault them for that. Go now before the snobs ruin it because they like to pay for "atmosphere" instead of good honest food in a good honest establishment. Recommend the Thali, Momo and Shogo Ngopa.

The last two times I've been to Cafe Tibet, they've been incredibly slow. First, it took well over an hour for two of us to get food. Second we were told 20-25 minutes for take-out, but it took much closer to 55 minutes. If they had said 55 minutes on the phone, it would have been fine. But instead I got to wait 35 minutes outside the restaurant. I would have left, but they had already taken my money before telling me how much longer it would be. I was a little angry about that.

I love the lamb curry (5 stars). Momo's are good, though portion is too big. I feel guilty throwing away leftovers. Can you make them smaller? Ordered the salad once and it was huge. Maybe add side salad to the menu? But seriously, if you change one thing get a bike, preferably one of those electric jobs. I would definitely order more if you had delivery weekdays, 5 to 7.

Ginger Chicken was amazing. Meat Patties were a serious bomb diggity.

I have read so many great review and was excited to try it. We I got the Café Tibet Thali(vegetarian) and my friend got Tsel-Baklap. I didn't like mine or my friends dish. I left practically everything. I love Indian food and Thai food, I tought I would enjoy Tibetian food as well, but that was not the case.

This place is a little gem right off the tracks on Cortelyou Rd. The dishes are a wonderful blend of spices, aromas, textures and colors. We will be back.
