If you like a little spice in you life, the Lhasa Jhasha (almost positive that's right) is amazing! In English, it's Chili Chicken. Each individual bite is flavored with such a wonderful blend of spices you will wonder where it has been all you life. Only tip, watch out for the jalapenos, they are complete with seeds and will burn more than just a little if you're not careful. <br /> Also good are the spring rolls, any of the dumplings, and the curry chicken is also tasty if you are one who enjoys curry. I haven't been able to get to it all quite yet; I'm currently having trouble getting beyond the Chile Chicken. I love it so much.<br /> For dessert, I recommend the mango ice-cream, and the mango drink is nothing to turn your nose up to either. <br />

I had never had Tibetan food before, and didn't know what to expect, but I have to say that this place is great!<br /> <br /> I dined with two others so we each chose a different entree to split. I wish that I could remember what the names were, but here's a description...<br /> <br /> Started with the "spring roll" appetizer which was great. It did not resemble traditional spring rolls, but rather looked kind of like fried tofu squares. They were indeed stuffed with tasty veggies, and while the portions were generous, they did not land so hard as to be too filling.<br /> <br /> We tried a savory beef with brown sauce & peppers dish, slightly spicy - very tender (contained a few jalapeņos sans seeds)<br /> <br /> There was a lamb stew with tiny dumplings the size of kidney beans. It was not at all chewy or gamey, and quite good overall.<br /> <br /> Also was an assortment of large dumplings of the sort one would find in other Asian genres, but with an entirely different flavoring. Three different fillings on those, two meat and one veggie. They came with a spicy orange colored ground salsa-esque relish; I have no idea what it was made of (definitely some garlic), but it was very good. The same stuff was served with the spring rolls.<br /> <br /> There was also a comprehensive vegetarian section on the menu for the meat-o-phobes.<br /> <br /> The atmosphere was soothing, calm and well lit, with chanting music in the background that did not intrude into the conversation. Also remarkable was the apparent absence of a visible kitchen. The attentive staff seemed to magically produce the food from some hidden preparation area.<br /> <br /> Beverages included a black tea which was prepared with butter & salt for a unique flavor. A small selection of bottled beers was also available.<br /> <br /> Anyway, good food. Check it out.<br />
