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

We dined on momos only at the Snow Lion this evening. It was a great discovery after having many many momos in Llasa and Darjeeling when we went with our children some years ago. There was also a place in Seattle that we would visit when passing through from Vancouver, but sadly they have closed. The flavors here are very... More

Popped in tonight and had a lovely dinner. My first Tibetan restaurant and it was really lovely. Great homemade dumplings (we had both steamed and pan-fried varieties - yum) with homemade chilli dipping sauce. The one waitress was delightful - very helpful and welcoming. I had the Tibetan rice wine - a white milky coloured glass of rocket fuel -... More

We were staying in a hotel close by so we decided to try the Snow Lion based on the good reviews. It is a small restaurant that appeared to be fairly clean with slightly dated furnishings. We were greeted immediately and seated at a table for two near the rear. There were only two other occupied tables when we came... More
