This place is as authentic as it can get. How do I know? I have been eating TIbetan food in the TIbetan neighborhoods in Delhi, India and this is a 98% match. Probably because the people running the place are Tibetans from India. If you are wondering why from India, brush up your history. Origins aside, what makes the place great is the delicious food on offer. The classics are hard to fault- the momos (yes, avoid the vegetarian ones unless that's all you eat), chowmein, shah baklap, thukpa- they are all a must-have. Their thalis are a great combo of Indian and Tibetan food where food is served in plates with sections for different parts of the meal- rice, dal, vegetables, meat/fish, Indian salad, poppadom. Everything feels like it's home made and fresh and made with love. The food is not too greasy and adequately flavored. So, why only a 98% match? Surprisingly, they do not sell pork momos, a big hit back in India. They don't have the red chilli sauce that we have loved eating growing up- some weird peanut-y hot sauce is on offer. I guess there is some sort of gentrification of the food that has happened- considering this is a spot in an increasingly hipster neighborhood. So, they revamped their menu with some hipster-friendly crap, straying away from their Tibetan delicious roots- often toning down the spice and flavor. Thankfully, their classics still taste great. Go there before the place gets colonized by folks who don't know a momo from a dumpling.

Not many places in Brooklyn for Tibetan food. Food is soulful. There aren't many places to sit, so get there early before it gets busy.

Such a special place. It is located close to the subway station, and when i get out from the subway and enter it, i feel how the day is slow down, and i know i will enjoy good dinner. The place is very small, but it has nothing to do with the quality of the food. If it is too late, i am having the vegetable patty that they make very specially. And if not too late, then definitely pork with rice. Not a fancy place, and no fancy people. But special and delicious yes!

Delicious food at good prices. You might miss Cafe Tibet just walking by, but after you've tried the food, you will take note. Recommend the beef momos.

Very very good. The service was a bit slow but worth the wait. The dumplings are so tasty and filling... I could eat them all day all the time. Noodles are yummy too.

Soups are a must get. Lots of flavor. Service is slow pretty consistently.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. They have pretty good Tibetean food like momos and soups. The decor is cute and the place is quaint.

Amazing food. Surprising and lively, it was a fantastic meal. We still talk about it... Is it possible to be excitedly wistful?
