Open for indoor dining, takeout, and delivery
“Tengri Tagh is just about the only restaurant in Midtown right now that fits into the Venn diagram of somewhere that’s new, exciting, and affordable. Pair their Uyghur noodle dishes - like the stir-fried noodle with thinly sliced lamb and sauteed peppers or the pearl noodle made up of chunky kernels of chopped noodles and more sauteed peppers - with one of their baked buns or lamb and cumin buns, and you’ll have a filling meal for under $20. And since they’re open from 11am to 8pm, people who are heading back to the office this summer and fall should start memorizing Tengri Tagh’s menu. This is a lunch spot that stands out in a sea full of surrounding chain restaurants and forgettable delis.”
Since March, this new Uyghur restaurant in Midtown has been serving halal dishes like handmade noodles with lamb, plov, and stuffed pastries on 37th Street. This narrow restaurant has a bunch of booths inside where you can enjoy some meaty soups and fresh dumplings, but you could also order takeout online from 11am to 9pm, every day except Friday.
