Tibet food not at it's best.

Central Square is a very busy area I am not surprised with the amount of reviews for this restaurant. I was invited to have lunch here. I hate that it was very busy. The restaurant is way too small and people are very loud. The customers are all whites and work nearby. They are not professionals, they look artsy and older. They have a buffet and you just go get your food. You take whatever you think is yummy. I am not familiar with asian food especially Tibetan food. The food was very messy. I tasted a few things. It was ok nothing that made me want to come back or to invite someone to eat here Truereview here to tell you the truth.

For a unique Tibetan dining experience that liberates you from the same ?ol, same ?ol, take a trip t

This hidden gem on a quiet side street off Central Square is one Boston?s few Tibetan restaurants. Rangzen - which means freedom - has calming eastern music, warm wood, and exotic artwork that relaxes diners the moment they arrive. On the wall is a huge photo of snow-capped Khawa Karpo, one of the sacred mountains in Himalayas. Tibet?s geographic location explains the food, which is influenced by China, India and Thailand. Scrumptious appetizers include the Shogo Numtak - mashed potato with cilantro and ginger, rolled in bread and fried; and the Duluma Numtak - sliced eggplant fried in chick pea batter. For main courses, try their famous vegetable, beef or chicken Momos - dumplings filled with cabbage, spinach & garlic, and served with a hot jalape?o-cilantro dipping sauce. Other favorites include the Langsha Chow - noodles sauteed with beef, shredded carrots and scallions; and the Tsel Temma - a semi-sweet dish of chickpeas, spinach and onions. The breads are also out of this world. Get the Shogo Phaley, whole-wheat bread stuffed with mashed potatoes and ginger; or the fried chickpea flour poppadums served with spicy relish. They also have a great lunch buffet. For a unique dining experience that liberates you from the same ?ol, same ?ol, take a trip to Rangzen.

Light and satisfying Tibetan cuisine

This is a regular eating spot for me. Everything I've ordered there has been great---satisfying and light. I never feel heavy and tired after eating there. Also, for lunch they offer a all-you-can-eat buffet where you can taste a wide variety of Tibetan food. It's also very reasonably priced, without alcoholic beverages I usually spend about $15-$20 for a dinner (including either a dessert or an appetizer). Check it out!

Honestly, the worst Tibetan food I've ever had

I recently moved to boston from Seattle where we have a myriad of Tibetan restaurants. I'm not trying to say I'm an expert on Tibetan food, but I have dined at a number of different Tibetan restaurants so I've got a decent idea of how particular dishes stack up against each other.

I'm a huge fan of momo - the momos here are terrible and vastly overpriced. They resemble chinese dumplings more than Tibetan momo, and they're gross. They're definitely homemade though. The dipping sauce is overpowering, a splash is all you need for the entire dish. They were dry and the ratio of filling to dough was like 1:4. To make them edible I discarded half of the dough from each momo.

We also tried two vegetarian dishes and a fried vegetable appetizer - the name escapes me. A bunch of vegetables fried in chickpea flower. The potato was the funniest - an entire potato dipped in flour and fried. The center wasn't even cooked.

I usually like to try restaurants twice before I give them the thumbs down on the theory that the chef may have had a bad night, but this was so bad that there really isn't room for enough redemption. Save yourself and go somewhere else.
