Correct me if I am wrong, but this is probably the only Tibetan eaterie

in Bombay. Another good thing that the SoBo-ites are missing out on as

it in on the Link road stretch.

Reaching there

It is a blink-and-you-will-miss kinda place, but there's one thing

you cannot miss when driving from Infinity Mall towards Oshiwara - the

Lotus Petrol pump(shaped like a funny kind of lotus) on your right. At

this point, veer to your left and this small place called Sernya is

next to a large Sansui neon sign over a shop.

The small entrance and even smaller space inside may initially

disappoint you, but wait until you are greeted by the 85 year old owner

Uncle John. He will welcome you like how a host welcomes guests into

his house, which is a very heartwarming experience as compared to most

other restaurant hosts in the city.

This Saturday was our almost

sixth visit to the place in a span of 9 months or so. We landed up here

as we were tossing between Mainland China, Prataps and Sernya to take

my cousin out for dinner. Since Tibetan food sounded like novelty to

her, Sernya it was.

The food

The food is mainly Tibetan - Soups, starters, Noodles, Rice and

Main course and a small Chinese selection.


We started with Steamed Vegetarian Momos and soups. [Sernya special

Khowa and Red Rice with baby mushrooms khowa]. This red rice, as uncle

John enlightened us, is not rice, but a herb found in the hilly regions

of Tibet and is extremely good for overall wellbeing.

*Main course - vegetarian

Dauzien De [Rice in a clay pot cooked with vegetables and black

mushrooms] - This dish can be eaten by itself as it is fairy mushy with

its own sauces. One excellent dish that you must try, biting into the

black mushrooms is a yummy experience.

Lhasa Gyadhuk [Noodles in sizzling platter] - Noodles with veggies in flavourful sauce served on a sizzler plate

Yang Chen Chema - Snow peas, mushrooms and baby corn in hot chilli sauce.

Both the noodles and the curry were excellent, spicy but not over

the top. I have always found the vegetables crisp and fresh and none of

the dishes use MSG(ajinomoto).


We have always found the service decent and with uncle John popping

by to ask if everything is fine, it is more hospitable than most places

in this city. There is nothing great about the ambience, and sometimes one or both of the ACs are down, but that doesn't prevent us from frequenting this down-to-earth place serving good food.

The six odd tables are always full and the people always

keeping coming back to this tiny place in Bombay with flavours of


A generous meal for three came to Rs.500.
