Fluttering prayer flags lead up to the second floor entrance of this Tibetan restaurant, where a pile of mani (prayer) stones and a large prayer wheel greet you. Elegant Tibetan Buddhist trumpets, lanterns, and handicrafts adorn the walls, and the kitchen serves a range of hearty dishes that run well beyond the region's staples of tsampa (roasted barley flour) and yak-butter tea. Try the vegetable pakoda (a deep-fried dough pocket filled with vegetables),
curry potatoes, grilled mushrooms, and cumin-roasted lamb ribs. There are live Tibetan performances most nights.
