They serve Tasty Momos with Soup,Yummy Thupkas , Noodles. Eating soupy noodles with sea view for dinner was perfect.But dogs and cats running around might upset you if you are not a pet lover. Otherwise perfect place

We spent many an hot afternoon drinking juice, reading books and looking at views from the Tibetan kitchen. Food was reasonably priced tasty and plenty of it. A great place to chill out. Best seats are on the higher level to the left.

Ambience was very simple and average but the food was very good. We ordered Chicken momos and Mutton thukpa. Both were ample in quantity and very good in taste. Momos were served with soup and spicy chutney.
