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.


Starters


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).


*Service



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


Tibet.


A generous meal for three came to Rs.500.
