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.

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

While looking for another restaurant we came across this one, decided to give it a try a fell in love with it. Great food, generous portions, low prices - especially considering the quality, and very friendly and professional service. The next evening we went there again - with the same results. Strongly recommended!

i am not a fan of asian food, but this one was really nice. The portions are big even for two, and the variety of tastes is unbeliavable. Very balanced and tasty, very friendly service.

Unassuming restaurant, but with good food and reasonable prices. The Tibetan curry was very good as was the sweet and sour chicken. A single rice portion was enough for two of us, with some Tibetan bread. Definitely worth a visit.

Cosy and wide range of Tibetian food. Was recommended by a couple to try and glad we did. The curries were much better than the dumplings though, thought those were bit dry. But overall good find in Amsterdam.
