The dazzling array of golden Buddha statues, Buddhist thangka paintings and other Tibetan ornaments and artworks that pack this unique restaurant makes it feel like you’re eating in a fine art gallery. Sit low on cushions and woven rugs at ornately painted tables or at Western tables beneath strings of colorful Tibetan flags, prayer wheels, and lanterns. For dinner, try the veggie momos – steamed dumplings with spinach and onion filling served with spicy red chili sauce (¥700). There’s a fresh tomato salad drizzled with olive oil, rock salt and herbs (¥480), and their bhatmas sadeko (¥480) (a salad of crunchy toasted soybeans) is loaded with ginger, garlic, spices, cucumber, red peppers, and onions. The Nepali Set (¥1,500) features a serving of dahl and a rich stew with lotus root, chard, and green beans flavored with orange. It comes with seasoned vegetables and basmati rice with a colorful medley of delicate shaved carrots, cucumber, peppers, onions and a hint of rose and bay leaf. A small store sells chakra bowls and fine statues, music, and jewelry.
