It's main positive is it's position close to the Bharkor in the old town, so many a foot-weary group of foreigners end up here. And also, it has a number of western dishes on the menu. Service was slow, food was acceptable, but I thought it was a little overpriced for what I got. Just a point, one of our... More

Lhasa kitchen is a safe bet to get a decent meal and a variety of dishes catering to most peoples needs. It has a mix of asian and western dishes, of decent quality and reasonable prices.The service is a little slow, so don't go if you're in a rush. The restaurant is reasonably well done and clean, and comes across... More

A delightful restaurant with a range of excellent Tibetan, Chinese and Western dishes. This can probably become rather touristy in high season but in the winter we were happy to see Tibetan friends and families enjoying Lhasa Kitchen.

The Lhasa Kitchen is a half block off Bharkor Square and was just a 5 minute walk from our thangka Hotel on Yutuo Street. The Kitchen seemed to be were guides of western tour groups brought their clients. As it was the only place in Lhasa where we were aware of western travelers. That wasn't a bother, plus the food...

We really liked this place - there are plenty of more authentic places to choose from in lhasa but i was suffering from both ams and a cold and the tomato soup and garlic naan were really good and helped settle my stomach. Finding simple non-spicy, non-greasy food in tibet can be hard work so i was glad of this... More

Our guide brought us here for our first Lhasa meal and we liked it so much we returned for several meals on our own. We had our favourite dishes but overall tried many on the menu. We did try another restaurant but we were totally ignored in favour of a large group who had arrived so we walked the 1/2... More

Our tour guide brought us here after a tour around the old town. I saw a lot of other tour groups being brought to this restaurant. As far as 'tourist trap' restaurants go, this is ok. We had good food but the service was a little slow. The price I think was just right. Try the tibetan menu particularly the... More

Our tour guide suggested this place as having more authentic food. The food was poor at best, and we had better meals at road side vendors all throughout Tibet. It came out one dish at a time, so nobody was served in any sort of order. One dish was totally forgotten and when questioned, it was as if it was... More

This was one of the best meals we had on our 17 day journey. The menu included a great mix of Tibetan, Indian and Chinese dishes. We particularly enjoy the curries, the lentils, naan bread, the spring rolls and the apple fritters.
