Miles beyond in terms of quality and authenticness from the restaurants near stupa. The real deal - best momo and thenthuk in town. Cheap prices. This is it.

If you are looking for cheap and delicious food and to be treated like family, this is your place. Amma-La is one of the finest and kindest people alive.

Host was disrespectful. After waiting for 30 minutes and finally finding the owner, he comes and refuses to serve us at 1:15 PM for lunch. Not for people who are hungry.

Been a couple of times but never had what I wanted from the menu. Had a good soup but would've preferred to not eat buff Momos in the green veg thick broth. Service is super slow. When you use the restroom you'll be able to see how clean the kitchen isn't. Cozy interior and a good place to meet people,... More

Double Dorje is incredibly authentic Tibetan place with great and charming old couple running this place. Everything is cooked fresh, so it needs a bit of time but momo and spring rolls as well as other dishes were great. Not mentioning the fun while trying tongpa - another thing definitely worth to experience in Double Dorje.

Cosy restaurant, tucked away in back streets away from touristy centre. Serving dirt cheap and delicious Tibetan food with comfy sofas to relax back into.
