This Tibetan restaurant is the ideal place to warm up this winter

Once you hit Lansdowne when you’re strolling along Queen West, the cozy restaurant scene quiets down a little.

Save for Glory Hole and the skeleton of Parts and Labour, there isn’t a whole lot to see.

Except for Om.

The restaurant’s orange storefront sends a warm glow out into the street, inviting you in. And once you enter, the delicious aroma asks you to stay a while.

Om Restaurant, nestled near the intersection of Queen and Jameson, serves delightful Indian and Tibetan food. While the meals will warm your tummy, the space will warm your nose and fingers, and the atmosphere will warm your soul.

Slip in during lunch hour to enjoy Gyuma, Pakora and Onion Bhaji. You’ll go back into work feeling like you just escaped the cold city for a little while.

Or stop in for dinner, and bask in the restaurant’s glow while the streets get dark outside. Fish Curry, Butter Chicken, Beef Biryani and Lamb Vindaloo are just a few of the mouthwatering dishes you can choose from.

And the world of this menu is a vegetarian’s oyster (?) with options like Palak Paneer, Aloo Mushroom and Chana Masala.

If you dip into the Tibetan section of the menu, you’ll find various Momos, Shaptak, Phingsha, and the ultra-warming Theinthuk and Mok-Thuk.

So if you’ve been getting tired of pizza and burgers, and you’ve also been tired of the cold… Om is your solution.
