Menu in English! Had a very tasty Yak sizzler with noodles and they provided a knife and fork. Seems a popular place and relatively cheap. I paid 60RMB with tea. Nice views over Jokhang square. The toilets alas, as in most Chinese establishments, left much to be desired!

Food is OK. Nice views but what ruined my visit was the stink from the barhrooms. Intolerable and you have to walk past them as you go up

It was interesting to read the comments by the reviewer who experienced very poor service. Our group of 16 people ate here twice, and had good food and service. We did not have to wait long (it was as if they were expecting us), and everything was tasty. Good view of the square from the window tables. The toilets were... More

Most of the tour guides will bring their groups here. There is a very wide menu including Italian, The yak burger was good and the tandoori Chicken was very good. A bit to much of a tourist stop.

We were delighted to find this international restaurant, it was so close to our hotel. However, we did not discover it until the night before we left. We ate from the Indian selection of the menu. Although, we are from England. It was super. The waitresses were very helpful and they sold beer (for about a pound a can).

I've been to India and I had the best chicken tikka I've ever had. Also had yak curry, chicken masala and yak burger which were all good! Service lovely and the view from the rooftop is great.

First visit for lunch, had hot & sour soup. Not quite what I am used to but it was sour and sure was peppery. Second visit for dinner had yak burger. Mold on bun. Otherwise OK

Mandala Restaurant has good food. the service is decent and there is a fat cat that moves around the restaurant, freely :-) Nothing bad about it but I almost accidentally stepped over it :-) Mandala serves Continental, Chinese, Indian and Tibetan dishes. Thukpa, a noodle soup, spicy chili chicken and lamb ribs were really tasty. Overall, great value for money.
