My friends and I always aim to try new / different cuisines each week. We picked here b/c it was "not thai". I was a bit nervous going in, but the food was great and not too expensive. I would most certainly come back here if I was looking for something different again. But not the place to go if you're juts craving Pad Thai. Duh.

Went with my boyfriend on a whim. The food was excellent and the staff was very pleasant. We had the Khampa Momo to start, then I had the Sauteed Shrimp - Yummy! The sauce with the Momo can be a bit spicy, but if you get the Thara to drink, it really helps to offset. And if you want some dessert, I'd definitely recommend the Tsampa Dessert (barley cake). Can't wait to go back!

I went to Tsampa with three of my friends on a Wednesday night at about 8:40. It took them about five or ten minutes to seat us- only because they were distracted, not because it was super busy- and once we were seated it took another 10 or 15 minutes to bring out menus and water. That being said, the rest of the evening was great. I ordered the Bocha (tea), which was not to my liking, but I'm glad I tried it. For dinner I ordered the Bhutanese Chicken, which I can safely say was one of the best meals I've had lately. My friends were less impressed with their chicken and noodle dish, saying that it was good, but like any generic Thai dish and they lost interest in it fairly quickly. For dessert we shared the barley cake with ice cream and fruit- two people/cake. It was delicious. I would go back Just for that dessert! The atmosphere was nice- we were in the back part of the restaurant. The decorations were interesting, and we were seated next to a window looking out on some lit up plants placed against a wall- which was nice. The restaurant wasn't too loud- we could all have a conversation- but it wasn't empty, either. All in all, a great experience, and I would go back here again- I may actually just day dream about that Bhutanese Chicken until I can get myself back there!

My boyfriend and I have gone here for dinner twice in the past three weeks, and can't wait to go again. The food is delicious, and the portions are very, very generous. You can tell that all of the dishes are prepared with care. We had never tried Tibetan before, so I have no comparison, but the flavors and spices are so tasty. Don't miss the barley cake for dessert!

Overall, the experience was disappointing. We shared the Khampa Momo, the Eggplant Saute, the Gyathuk Ngopa, and a side of bread. The price was not bad, but the portions were. We left wondering what we would eat for dinner. The flavors were decent, but could not compare to my prior experience with Tibetan food (if in Boston, see Martsa's on Elm, in Davis Square). Happy Dining.

We went here on New Years Eve 2008 and it was awesome! The chicken is free range and a bunch of the menu items are organic. Lots of vegitarian options! The portions could be a little large... but then again I'm a bigger eater than some. Peace

We wanted to try something new and we were impressed by the reviews. Tried the lhasa momo, the gyathuk ngopa and the tse shogo ngopa based on what other reviewers recommended. The dishes were splendid! Very interesting flavors. I highly recommend trying Tsampa's fabulous food...we'll definitely be back...this time we'll eat in...the atmosphere seemed really nice!
