TASHI DELEK AND WELCOME TO TIBET’S RESTAURANT.
Each decoration serves as a reminder of Buddhist philosophy. Everything you see in the restaurant has a meaning associated with it to help make life easier and more pleasurable for everyone in the community. Tibet’s has been decorated with strategically placed items to create the best energy for the space. The use of natural substances such as rock, wood, water, aromatic scents, light, and sound create a relaxing environment in which to share a great meal with your friends, loved ones, and co-workers.
The restaurant is decorated with authentic Tibetan religious and social icons. The handmade masks help ward off evil spirits. The “Thangka” (fabric scrolls with gods depicted in the middle) are deities in themselves, but they are akin to Christian saints in that each one is called upon for a special need. The tigers on the handmade rugs are for protection. The water fountain is a traditional symbol for the flow of life and nourishment. It is adjacent to a live tree and rests underneath a traditional line of prayer flags and hand woven tapestry of an ancient Tibetan city. Underneath a traditional crossbow is an authentic map of Tibet which depicts not only where Tibet lays but also depicts daily life and they types of animals natural to the environment. Our photos lining the walls are of actual Tibetan people in daily life. The photo of a child spinning a prayer wheel is a scene one might see each morning as many wheels are then spun in preparation for the day to come.
All of Tibet’s Interior décor are authentic Tibetan decorations were complied by Tenzin Passang of Tibet Gallery (303) 402-0140 in Boulder.

Colors balance the emotions and elements to bring inner and outer peace. So many Tibetan items use the five colors in them. Each color has a special meaning associated with it to represent the five elements of earth, wind, fire, water, and sky.
Red = fire White = Wind Blue = Sky Yellow = Earth Green = Water
The balance of these elements creates a peaceful, successful, loving, and good life for all. These colors are throughout the decorations and the restaurant to create a balanced place for all to enjoy their meals and their day. The combinations of these colors bring balance and stability for all.

Here we are offering a piece of this beautiful culture to preserve it for todays and future peoples. By dining here you are helped to preserve Tibetan culture through participating in an ancient culture of community sharing of meals and goodwill. Also, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Colorado Tibetan Culture association which helps promote Tibetan culture here in Colorado.
We are bringing our home to you and want this to be your home too!
So spin the prayer wheels clockwise on your way in or take a moment to admire the beautiful banners representing the elements of life. Enjoy your meal and realize that you are participating in an ancient culture of sharing and creating good karma in your life!
