Great food, tranquil atmosphere

If you like Indian or Thai food, you should give Tibetan cuisine a try and Tsampa is an excellent place to start. Besides the fascinating selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes, it's an island of serenity in the bustling East Village. An all-Tibetan wait staff gives charming, competent, calm and overall first-rate service in an attractive, low-key, roomy (for Manhattan) space beneath a large portrait of the Dalai Lama. On a recent visit, an all-vegan meal of the squash-corn soup and tse gyathuk ngopa (baked noodles with garlic and ginger topped with vegetables) were superb. The spiced sauce of the tse gyathuk ngopa was subtle and delectable. All in all, a near-perfect restaurant experience.

Pros: fascinating & delicious regional cuisine, outstanding service, tranquil atmosphere
Cons: parking (take public transit)
