Went There a Sunday and had one of the 2 person meals with a starter and 3 different main courses, followed by a cup of Tea. Really great tasting food with the picture of Dalai Lama on the wall. Besides this, the vaitress was very kind and helpfull, and we did not Pay too much either:-) Recommendable👍☺

Not sure if it's usually like this or if it was simply the night we were there, but we were the only clients. That did not deter us and we decided to stay and have dinner. Really no regrets. The food was good. It was my first time having tibetan food and it's quite similar to indonesian/indian/chinese food. The sweet... More

Tibetan food was new to me and now this will be one of my must return to places in Amsterdam. Despite the simple decor of the restaurant the food jumps to life with its freshness, taste, and authenticity. The dumplings were divine and the range of great tasting vegetarian and meat dishes was fantastic. Highly recommend this place.

We were lucky to choose this restaurant out of the many nearby. Kind and friendly service, great fresh food with a wide variety of vegetarian and meat dishes. Most meals can be as spicy (or not!) as you ask. Very busy when we went but food arrived quickly, amazing considering its run by a couple! Definitely recommend
