Caveat: This place is largely for meat lovers. Their veggie stuff is good too but the variety and price of meat dishes is the real draw (especially, if you eat beef). One thing to look out for here is the beef shaptra. Beef cooked with spinach and a pepper gravy, this dish is a little spicy. The great thing is that they are not stingy about their meat. I have never seen such generous portions of meat in any other restaurant. Team this with the tingmo which is fermented maida. Tear a little bit of the tingmo and have it with the shaptra. The bland tingmo complements the spicy shaptra perfectly.
One could also try the thukpas. These are Tibetan noodle soups with some meat, egg or veggies on top. The soup is watery and little spicy. The Egg Thukpas have a thick omlette on top, whereas the beef thukpa has a considerable layer of beef on it. This is rather filling and should suffice for lunch or dinner. It also does wonders if you are suffering from a mild cold.
Another specialty here are the momos. The succulent steamed momos are quite unlike the normal fare available at umpteen restaurants. The non-veg ones have tons of meat in them. The sauce they serve along with the momos is quite good. The momos are undoubtedly the best I have had in Bangalore. Thianthuk (flat noodles), noodles and fried rice are also available here. The beef fried rice here has a wonderful flavour and if you are in the mood for something heavy and fatty, you must try it. Also try the chowmein noodles. These crisp, deep fried noodles are served with a spicy tomato pickle and is bound to appease your taste buds.
The service is extremely quick and efficient. The decor is serviceable with some Tibetan motifs. They do not have a restroom. Go here for the wonderful food (and not for a fine dining experience) and you will be satisfied. Taste of Tibet serves authentic Tibetan cuisine at very affordable prices and is a must try.
