THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tibet Shambala Restaurant Review

: Shambala looks like a mythical heaven on earth. We don’t think the food at this handsome storefront restaurant is otherworldly, but it’s pretty good. Among the soups, there is a noteworthy tomato-based broth with spinach, tofu, beef dumplings and scallions. Also intriguing is the salad of potatoes, chickpeas and greens. The lamb curry is popular, as are several beef dishes. A lovely dessert is made of sweetened rice with raisins and homemade yogurt. Service is friendly and enthusiastic.
