Good Tibetan food

We ate at this restaurant twice, one day at lunch and once at dinner. The food was excellent both times, especially the Tibetan and Nepalese dishes. The yak curry was great with just the right amount of spice. My kids loved the butter naan. Limited English but the menus did include English... read more

We tried local and tourist restaurants and Lhasa Kitchen had by far the best food out of all tourist restaurants. Food was hot and had good flavor. Meat was tender and not chewy. Spotty and at times slow service,but nothing major. We ate here 2 times. both were pleasant. Would recommend it over the other place (starts with New and... More

Nothing Tibetan or even Chinese about the dinner we had. Just bland dishes catered to Western tastes. Not sure about their menu dishes but the ones we got I could have skipped and gone to a local place by myself.

We had lunch at the Lhasa kitchen while scrolling through Barkhor. The location is just across Jokangh temple. Dishes are ok but not the best you can get in Lhasa. We had fried rice, dumplings, fried nudles and some other typical local food. Service speaks English which is helpful. Be aware that smoking is allowed in Tibetan restaurants. Would be... More

I visited this restaurant at least four times during my time in Lhasa. The restaurant is very authentic with friendly staff and reasonably priced food. They offer a good variety of Tibetan foods. They do amazing momo's and very good curries. They also have amazing pancakes the chocolate and banana and plain banana ones are very good. This was our... More

The ambience and environment is clean and cosy; their food was delicious; at times slightly slow with the service, but still overall a good one. This is one of the few places in Tibet I wouldn't worry about having a decent meal at.

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.
