Great pizza for the kids and Yak burgers were wonderful. Afte all the Chinese food we had been eating this place was a nice change. WE had two different kinds of soup here and they were the best on the trip.

This is a place where you can see a roomful of non-Chinese. We had momo and stir-fried yak meat as recommended by our guide. The meat was really tough and the taste was on the somewhat edible end of things. Other people's dishes didn't look good either. A rip-off place used by tour operators.

Lhasa Kitchen is centrally located near Jokhang temple. They have a good choice of food. We went for the Tibetan and both dishes were very tastefull. Service is quick and friendly. Definately one of the best places in a nice decor in the Jokhang area

Food here is below average, yet the clientele is dragged here by the busload by the tour operators. So if you've traveled all the way to Tibet, want to see a restaurant full of Europeans, and want to get wired up on MSG-laden below average food, then don't miss it. Even though the service is excellent, this is irrelevant if... More

Close to Jokhang Temple... with excellent food plus service. Even exhausted from a day of sight seeing we still managed to climb the few stairs to a GREAT meal. Service also perfect.... so much so that we returned not once yet twice, something that is not our normal as we like to try different restaurants. Food was SO good. A... More

We enjoyed a lunch at the Lhasa Kitchen. The food was good and the service was fine. The location near the Jokhang Temple made it a fun place to eat. The momos were excellent. I noticed that another reviewer endorsed the ginger, lemon and honey drink and we heartily agree.
