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

Small but really friendly with an extensive menu. We both had a lovely meal . My starter was cold but as soon as I mentioned it it was replaced immediately . The atmosphere was great and if you have never tried Tibetan food this is a great place to start.

My partner and I stumbled upon Snow Lion a couple of years ago. We visit Amsterdam at least once a year, and one of the highlights is always visiting this restaurant. We visited Amsterdam for our 8 year anniversary last weekend and planned to have our anniversary meal here. When we arrived, the place was packed! The secret is clearly... More
