It was clean, the food was great. We discovered a special tea: hot tea made with ginger, honey and lemon - and with colds coming on, this beverage was soothing and most comforting

Now here is one restaurant in Lhasa that for all its good review I just don’t get. Nowhere near as special as the atmospheric House of Shambala, not nearly as varied a menu as centrally located Snowlands and, despite the vaulted “Western” hospitality, we found little of that. There was nothing really wrong with the restaurant, but the menu was... More

We stayed at the Yak Hotel next door and dropped into the Dunya upstairs bar for a quick drink one night: very confortable and great music, colourful Dutchman owner was a great character and the Napalese manager was very helpful and made truly GOOD margaritas...not something easy to find. Had dinner in the restaurant one night, and upstairs in the... More

We went here on advice from our guide for some western food for my son who had been sick. The food was oily. I wasn't keen to go back but we did only because it was next door. 2nd time the man upstairs was so rude that we left without eating. Asked for a lassi and he said no because... More

A great place for a BIG meal! We each had fairly tasty soups to start (tomato, noodle) and the special was Yak Steak with veg, chips and tomato ketchup. As the temps fall, a warming honey, ginger and lemon tea is warming and fresh. Service is speedy, friendly and adds to pretty decent though unspectacular food. We did find some... More

We went to this place for dinner because of tripadvisor reviews. Yes this place is a tourist trap because all you can see eating there are foreigners. But as far as tourist traps go, the food is really good. We liked the yak burger and the yak steak. Service was good and relatively fast. There's also a young girl serving... More

After a while eating noodles, rice and soup, trying to avoid at all costs eating meat, we had Yak meat at Dunya Restaurant. The restaurant is good for those worrying about lack of hygiene in Tibetans restaurants. It does look clean and the service is quite good. The food is not the tastiest but definitely one of the best options... More

We sat upstairs in this western style restaurant. I ordered the yak burger which was excellent. If you want a little taste of home this is a good choice however, there are much better local restaurants around.

We ate here for lunch and had a fresh orange juice which was lovely and tomato soup. We went back at night to have pasta and pizza (a change from the usual Chinese menu in all the other local restaurants) They were both very good - a bit heavy with the basil in the pasta but tasty. The beer was... More
