A Jackson Heights Tibetan restaurant will be opening a second location on Northern Blvd in the next few weeks.

Phayul, the highly acclaimed Tibetan/Himalayan restaurant located on the second floor of 37-65 74th Street, will be opening a restaurant at the former site of Ru Yi Northern Restaurant, located at 89-17 Northern Blvd.

The new restaurant, which will be called Phayul Himalayan Restaurant, will be very similar to Phayul, according to chef Chime Tendha.

The menu will contain the same dishes, although several new items will be added, Tendha said.

“We are not sure just yet what we will be adding,” he said. “We are working on it.”

The new location will be much larger, a necessity, Tendha said. The Northern Blvd restaurant will be able to seat 40 people, compared to the current restaurant, which can seat 20 people.

“The old restaurant is very small,” Tendha said. “Customers will be much more comfortable at the new restaurant.”

Tendha will serve as the head chef at the new location, with his existing staff remaining at the 74th Street location.

The new restaurant was first reported on the website, Jackson Heights Life, a neighborhood forum.
