I understand there is good Tibetan food to be had in NYC and would love to know where to find it. Can you please direct me for lunch or dinner on a Saturday? We'll be driving in from Connecticut in a couple of weeks.
I searched this board using last 12 months and last 5 years as criteria, but only found an old post from 2005 about Tibet Shambala, now closed (right?). I also googled and found nothing current from Chowhound, which was surprising.

I've been to at least two Tibetan places in Manhattan. There's one place on 3rd and 31st I think, called Tibetan Kitchen. Then there's a place on east 9th... name escapes me at the moment but it was also pretty good.

I like to go to Cafe Himalaya, 1st St. between 1st and A, for a soothing dinner sometimes, on the way home from work. It's a family operation by Tibetans who grew up in Nepal (I think I remember correctly that the younger generation of staff was born there), and serves both cuisines. I don't consider it a destination restaurant, however.
