About Shimbu

Translating from Tibetan to mean delicious, Shimbu Tibetan Restaurant is an all-encompassing sensory delight, joining the dining hotspot precinct along East Brunswick’s Lygon Street. This trendy family-run restaurant feels warm and welcoming, adorned with Tibetan trinkets and miniature monks while black subway tiling adds a sleek city vibe. Most of their ingredients are made in house by their Tibetan chef with over 25 years of culinary experience, providing two main styles of dishes to suit all tastes; while the first side of the menu offers traditional flavours, the other side sees dishes with a far more contemporary twist. Don’t be shy to order an array of both such as a mix of steamed dumplings, spicy vegetable curry, pork belly soft shell tacos and fried chicken with Kewpie mayonnaise.

Read about this restaurant in the age papers so thought I'd give it a try and was very pleased with everything, from the food to service and friendly staff everything was great! Amazing experience seeing as it was a different cuisine thought it would be abit odd but I was sure impressed! Definitely will come back with my family and friends to try out the rest of the menu!


Came here with work mates, we all shared dumplings. Was very nice and modern interior too. Service was great and menu was great value. I've been back several times. Great new spot
