Tibetan Food at Rigo Restaurant

Chicken Devil Momos

Rigo is a popular restaurant in the heart of Delhi’s Tibetan community, serving delicious and authentic Tibetan food as well as varied Asian cuisines. The fine dining restaurant is a great place to have an authentic Tibetan meal with friends and family. The Tibetan Refugee Colony in Majnu Ka Tila is a really calm place and being there is like being in a different country itself. Rigo too is a very calm and quiet restaurant with no music playing in the background, which is actually good as you can have conversation easily.

Now coming to the food, it is excellent and really pocket friendly. Chicken Devil Momos are a specialty here which is basically Chicken Momos stir fried in a spicy sauce with vegetables. As the name suggests the “Devil” momos are really spicy. You can also try the Konjee Crispy Chicken which is fried chicken strips tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce. Other picks here would be Pork Chilly, Beef Momos and the Gyathuk Thukpa. Thukpa is a kind of a noodle soup with pieces of meat and vegetables and is a meal in itself. With all these items you should not forget to order Tingmo which is the famous steamed bun.

The staff at Rigo is friendly and well trained. They are well informed about all the dishes and very co-operative. The best part about this restaurant is that even after ordering four of the items mentioned above, the bill amounted to around 700 Rupees. It is a very less amount considering the fact that we were three people. So I would say that if you are in Delhi then you should visit the Tibetan colony and have a meal at Rigo Restaurant.
