It’s good quality and it’s reasonable and the food is so so yummy. The best thing is it’s so light and tastes closest to homemade that you can get in a restaurant. One of the few places. In the city where you can get beef.
Their minis are their best. I’d definitely recommend their beef items. Ask for Doma - ।she’ll serve you something to suit your tastes. Authentic home cooked Tibetan.

It feels good when I see people from my favorite Hills are doing startups here in my city. After The Whistling Kettle, and Mamamomo (in collaboration with Bonisha from TWK), another place has opened in Kolkata. Shim Shim is right up my alley. Tibetan foods, Nepali items, you name it, they have it. With the authentic hilly taste. Nothing much to say about the food items. Those are just fantastic. Choose any item, you won't be disappointed. So genial is the staff also. Everyone from my favorite Hills is so cordial. A photo of HH Dalai Lama the XIV will keep blessing you from every corner of this 16 seater restaurant. A huge wallpaper of Potala Palace adorns one side. The other sides are decorated with photos and holy signs from Tibet and Vajrayan Buddhism. Card payment is not accepted, but Paytm is there. All prices are inclusive of GST. All meat items are halal items. They chose a peculiar location for a Tibetan-Chinese-Nepali restaurant! Only gripe is that they close at 4 pm and reopen at 5. And they remain closed on the last Sunday of the month.

It's a beef lovers paradise. If you enjoy Tibetan food served with beef, noodles with chilli beef. Beef momos and the list keeps going on then this place is a must try. The food is delicious, though quantity could be a bit better. Owned by the same owner for another popular restaurant in Kolkata The Blue Poppy.
