This restaurant was unfortunately slightly underwhelming. We had yak curry, lentil soup, vegetables and a desert (apple in a kind of batter). The yak curry and the lentil soup were good, but the vegetables and the desert were disappointing. One of my friends found an animal in his desert, which was not very enticing, either. You should much rather go... More

Most of the tour guides bring their guests here but the food they served are just an average. Nothing spectacular about this restaurant.

My wife and I were taken to this restaurant by our guide. The place obviously caters to tourists: foreign language picture menus, absence of chopsticks, and servers that speak at least some English. My wife had a tandoori chicken platter while I had a curried yak platter. Our soups were tasty, as was the naan bread, yak yogurt, and chicken.... More

We tried local cuisine everywhere in China and we where advised by our local China Odyssey tour guide that Yak is a typical local fare. Lhasa kitchen was a nice atmosphere, very popular with nice decor and great old photos of the area and near Barkhor street. Service with a smile and reasonable service time despite being busy.

We came to this restaurant in two different times taken by our tour guide, I don't know if there is a specific affiliation with the tour company and this restaurant (I think there might be because there were a lot of foreigners) they have a good variety of dishes, which I found tasty. the service was fast. The restrooms are... More

We were taken there by our guide for lunch after visiting the Jokhang temple. Indian, Tibetian and western food. The chicken biriani was good, though too much for lunch. The fries were delicious also!

This is one of the most authentic places to eat in Lhasa. It had got very high reviews and lived up to them on all counts. We arrived without a booking and were welcomed into a family's front room to eat. All of the food was cooked from scratch while we waited which meant that things took a little longer... More

This is a wonderful Tibetan restaurant opposite the Jokhang Temple and offers a wide array of Tibetan fare as well as many western favorites. The Curry Mutton and Yak dishes are exceptional with rice and Naan. Try the Yak Butter Tea (not for me though).

Had lunch and dinner at Lhasa Kitchen. Food was good without being great. Good service from the wait staff and big servings, but I expected a little more from a Tibetan restaurant. I've consistently had much better momos in Kathmandu. Overall ok for the price, it really is one of the cheaper options along this stretch of restaurants.
