New Himalayan Yak in Fargo closes temporarily
Bijay Lama, manager of Himalayan Yak, said the work now being done will allow the restaurant to offer a lunch buffet. It is currently uncertain when construction will conclude.
FARGO — Himalayan Yak, which recently opened a second restaurant in Fargo at 1109 38th St. S., has temporarily closed the doors of the latest restaurant for construction work.
Bijay Lama, manager of Himalayan Yak, said the work now being done will allow the restaurant to offer a lunch buffet, but he said it is uncertain when the construction will be completed.
He said the business expects to open again by March 1 and possibly before that if the work proceeds more quickly.
The new location opened in early February.
The original Himalyan Yak, located at 1450 25th St. S., already offers a lunch buffet.
Both the new location and the original have the same menu, according to Lama.
Previous restaurants at 1109 38th St. S. have included La Fiesta Mexican and American Grill and Santa Lucia Restaurante. Santa Lucia closed in November 2018, while La Fiesta closed in September 2022.
Lama has said the long-term future of the original location at 25th St. S. is still to be determined.
“We’ll see how it goes with the shortage of crew and the amount of help and labor we have,” Lama told The Forum when the second location opened. “If everything works out pretty good, we’ll keep them both. If not, worst case scenario, we’ll still have one Himalayan Yak standing.”
