Great and unique food, fun place

I left this restaurant with a large smile on my face. The food was amazing, the staff was so kind to us, the atmosphere was cosy. The food seem to be relatively un-westernized, which is a good thing. I would pay another visit next time I'm in town.

Consistently great food, excellent service, cosy environment (a bit smelly but nothing that cannot be endured). We went there for more than 10 times, bringing friends or for a quite dinner & I definitely recommend the place!

Friendly and welcoming. A duo job: Cook alone in the open kitchen and his wife is serving. Very at ease, waiting isn't a problem because the restaurant is cosy and small. Good good for a very good price.

This is by far once of the best places I've ever eaten. Nice (and at times spicy) Tibetan food, and friendly service. It's a small restaurant, so best to reserve in advance. And they cater for vegetarians as well. All in all nothing bad about it, just an excellent place to enjoy excellent food.

Especially the meat momo's were delicious and it came with a homemade hot sauce. Everything simple but with... More

Like going to Snow Lion for two reasons. One is, of course, the food. Second, the ever-smiling hostess! It's a small joint but cosy enough. There's a good variety to choose from. You can ask the dish to be made spicy or otherwise. Like the momo soup, vegetable dishes and spicy lamb curry. Wish they'd some Tibetan dessert! If you... More

We ate here during a Christmas trip through Amsterdam. The place was small and not too fancy or stuffy. The restaurant is run by a lovely couple - a guy cooks in a small kitchen the back and a young woman hosts and serves. The food was simple and had wonderful, subtle seasonings. The dishes were spicy, but the spice... More
