Tibetan Kitchen was created in 2006 when Sonny and Jane, who met while travelling in Asia, married and settled in Manchester. Upon realising that little was known of Tibetan cuisine and even less was available, they started to introduce it to their family, friends and neighbours. It was an instant hit and demands of ‘more’ were fast flowing!
The family business has developed and grown from their little yak van selling momos at local markets, to a fully equipped catering trailer traveling to music festival all over the country.
In 2012 they were given the opportunity to run a pop- up café in South Manchester for six months, which gained a local cult following. This experience encouraged them to look for a permanent base whilst continuing with their busy summer festival commitments. In early 2014 they opened their takeaway just in time for Tibetan New Year.
Tibet is a nation with a cuisine that is as unique and vibrant as its people, language and culture. Although influenced by the food of neighbouring India, China and Nepal, it has retained its own distinct flavour. This is reflected in our ever-growing menu, which offers both traditional Tibetan dishes and those with distinctly Himalayan roots. For all the meat lovers amongst you, we offer a range of beef and chicken dishes. For the non-meat eaters, we offer a delicious range of vegetarian and vegan options.
Sonny’s unique flavouring is at the heart of all our food, and that which people enquire about and comment on the most. Catering for all palates, he uses a delicate balance of ginger, garlic and fresh herbs, while spicing up some dishes with Tibetan pepper (’emma’) and fresh and dried chillies. We pride ourselves on always using good quality, carefully sourced ingredients, free of MSG, artificial preservatives, colouring and flavouring.
