Nice Tibetan-style restaurant

This little place was recommended to me by my guide. Service was prompt and friendly (neither of which are a given in Lhasa) and the food was tasty. Try the pancakes (a house specialty) or the momos... As we left, a group of monks came and sat down for dinner - and I can't imagine a better... read more

A good choice of Tibetan dishes - very authentic. Basic kitchen and toilet facilities mean it's best to be acclimatised first

Not only is Tashi 1 very central on the Beijing Road but it is good value and the food reasonable. The service is quick, fluent English is spoken and the ambience in the small dining room is good. it is perhaps better for a light lunch rather than a longer evening dinner.

We ate here several times during our week in Lhasa, trying breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's a gorgeous little cozy dining room, the service is friendly, and the food is wonderful. The fried apple momo's are to die for.

We went with friends to this lovely little restaurant. It's very small and has a dining room feel with beautiful pictures on the walls. We returned for breakfast the next morning. Great food, good value for money compared to other places close by.

Was told about this place by a local Tibetan after missing breakfast in our hotel. Was very sceptical at first but the staff made us feel very welcome. The decor and layout of the place is basic but the food is fantastic and very nice. Prompt friendly service with English speakers . During our stay o 8 days in Tibet... More
