I LOVE the food here. I've been here more than a handful of times and as I'm writing this review, I've realized I haven't been back in a while .. I am due for another trip to Lhasa Fast Food.
I absolutely love the beef and chive momos with the orange spicy sauce that you can find on the table. The momos are super juicy and flavorful. It usually takes a while for the momos to come out cause it always appears that they are making momos fresh to keep up with all the orders! It's sooo worth the wait (not long though).
I love to get the sushi liang fen but be warned - it is VERY Spicy. They mean it when they say spicy. I've also had the beef with glass noodles - the broth is very spicy as well. The thenthuk, Tibetan noodle, and chow mein are great. The noodle soups always hit the spot! The soup is very flavorful. The butter tea is good - it's a little salty from the butter.
The place is located at the back of the building, behind a cell phone store so it's pretty warm during the winter time but It doesn't bother me, I go for the food! Sometimes there's a wait for a table since the space is small but I never have to wait too long.
I highly recommend this place.
My fiancé and I trekked up to Jackson Heights to try out this gem. I saw a lot of pictures of this place on Instagram, and was on the lookout of the phone store. We got there around 12:30, and was able to grab a table. We decided to order the beef and chive momos and the sushi leng feng. The leng feng was super spicy, I was glad that my fiancé could finish it, but I wouldn't recommend it if you can't handle spicy food. The beef and chive momos were tasty, but there was definitely more chives than beef in the momos.
I'm glad that we got there at 12:30 because when it got to 1pm a line started to build up, also they do accept credit card but would recommend bringing cash for tip.
Not Fast at all . If you know what you want order ahead . Slow as f .
Delicious dumplings BUT they cheap w the meat .
A good place to sit to while you waste your lunch break waiting for the yummy food .
The pepper sauce ain't all that .
Took a few double takes to find the entrance, which was a sliver of space between two stores. Inside, was able to share a table and ordered the chicken and beef & chive momos. The former were juicy; as I clumsily bit into one, the contents spurted onto the table; subsequent momos required more care in extracting the liquid first. The beef & chive ones were dominated by the chives, as it was difficult to discern the meat. Given the price and amount of food, there was great value to the meal. Also to note, I was able to pay with credit card despite anticipating it being cash only.
This place is probably the most hidden restaurant I've seen in NYC. Tucked behind an arcade of various trinket shops, there is no exterior sign to suggest this is the home of Lhasa Fast Food.
Inside, however, the restaurant is located in a cozy nook, with an image of the Dalai Lama plastered in front of a landscape photo of the Himalayas. Seating is pretty comfortable.
I only tried the vegetarian chive momos on my first visit, which were divine. They had a bit of soupiness that lent them the texture of XLBs. Of the various accompaniments I found they paired best with the dry chili paste, combined with soy sauce.
