Very good tibetian cuisine. Just know the groupon does not apply to yak dishes but there's other very delicious things on the menu to explore!

You can't order any dish containing yak except the mo-mo aka dumplings, which were great. The barley pasta dessert is a must try...who eats pasta for dessert? Thibetans that's who and it's really good.

Read the Groupon fine print before redeeming as it clearly states that Groupons can't be used for Yak dishes.

Dumplings are too dry and yak is tough.

The food was good but nothing special. Bela, around the corner is a much better meal for the same price.

From Our Editors

When China invaded Tibet, Thondup and Dolma Tsering's family escaped to India, and the two children enrolled in school for Tibetan children. They graduated and eventually moved to the United States in 1997, where they founded a business that would celebrate their culture: Lhasa Cafe. Today, as the cafe celebrates it's tenth anniversary, chef Tenzin Tsewang leads the staff at the restaurant, and Thondup and Dolma can still be found helping out around their authentic Tibetan restaurant on weekends. In the kitchen, chef Tenzin and Namdol cook all dishes to order and make dumplings in-house from scratch; they use only fresh ingredients and refuse to use MSG or decorative glitter.

The staff follows recipes according to the Tibetan culinary tradition, which incorporates subtle seasoning and a lot of ginger, garlic, and the emma peppercorn. There’s also an emphasis on yak meat, which is lean and low-cholesterol and tastes comparable to beef. It takes center stage in dishes such as traditional mo-mo dumplings, pan-fried noodle dishes, and stews. Also on the menu: vegetable dumplings, vegetarian noodle soups, and lamb and chicken curries.
