I've eaten here a dozen times over the last few years. It is a standby lunch buffet place for me, a mostly vegetarian. There are always several vegetarian options. The quality and selection seems to very a lot, by which I mean that some days I enjoy the lunch much more than other days. There is a large variety of... More

Came here for a late dinner with a friend. We took a long time to make a choice, but the waiter was very patient. The food was good, I also really enjoyed the cinammon lhassi.

Conveniently located near Mass Ave , in between Harvard and MIT, this little wooden cafe/restaurant is ideal for a quick lunch. The buffet is delicious fresh and nourishing and not overwhelmingly large ( which is a relief!) . The charming serene staff add to the experience. For a delicious, nourishing lunch this is a great find.

Family of 4, after some shopping at Kittery Premium Outlets, drove back, hungry, not too exciting ambience, friendly waiters though, ordered a few unknown dishes, real quick service, reasonable portions, reasonable prices, however, all dishes bland without salt , apparently is the tradition in Tibet, rather unbelievable, overall not what was expected and little disappointing.

There is a good lunchtime buffet. Sometimes people going back for more get stuck around the corners of the buffet. Don't let this happen to you! Otherwise, food is on the bland side. I do not know anything about Tibetan cuisine so I can't comment on "authenticity." I do know that the servings (if you come at dinner and order... More

This is truly a hidden gem in the city. The food is fresh and tasty, and not the same old same old. Great vegetarian foods, even veg dumplings are delish. And the waitstaff is so polite!

If you are from India, the dumplings here will remind you of Momos back home, and the chowchow will certainly bring back memories of Calcutta street Chinese. Lovely to eat here!

This cozy little place just off Central Square has an extensive menu and friendly service. As a party of four, we ordered three appetizers and three mains, plus the mixed pickle (very spicy) - it was plenty of food, though nothing was left to bring home. We recommend the eggplant dish (from the mains) and the flatbread-like appetizer stuffed with... More
