Where can I find Tibetan restaurant, reasonably priced with great ambience?

Tried the site thebeijinger.com, it tells me the locations but there is no review except with articles written on the restaurant. Prefer some real dining experience. And if you can also include what are some of the MUST-TRY Tibetan dishes, that'll be great!

I ate at a restaurant serving Qinghai specialties in Beijing last fall. I can't really tell you for sure if the Qinghai cuisine is or is not "Tibetan", but as the main minority in Qinghai is of Tibetan ethnicity, I would venture to say that the two cuisines are similar to a large extent and they are culturally close.

I couldn't tell you the names of the dish I had but I clearly remember the beer (Lhasa) for having had a few too many...All I can tell you about the food is that it was delicious and very different from Chinese cuisine. I had a great lamb rack with some pretty tasty mushrooms served with cold noodles, tomatoes and chili peppers, and some steamed eggs in chicken broth and small dumplings that tasted a bit like italian gnocchis. Another dish was thin slices of either beef or yak, with thin strips of vegetables like carrots and a long green asparagus-looking vegetable that I never saw before.

I cannot remember the name of the restaurant, but it is on Zao Ying Street in Chao Yang district, and it is in a class of its own, very classy decor. The service and the quality of the food was as good as in any 5 star restaurant.
