They have a great choice of food, also western. We had the fried noodles with chicken. Normally food is very spicy in China, but here the tast was not spicy at all. The staff speaks a little english.

A very nice place for dinner. We had the Yak momos, special potato dish and the noodels. The noodles and potatoes were the best plates. To only thing to improve is the oil amount in the food but thats a Chinese thing i guess. Enjoy!

Great quiet place to come for really good Western foodif you need a bit of a fix (I recommend the lasagne - but not the burgers which are freshly homemade but have a lot of grains and vegetables in the mix) or the really delicious yak momos. They have good beer too. The owners are very nice although they don't... More

I really wanted to love this place, since it has a wonderful atmosphere, good service, beautiful decorations, and fast wifi. In my opinion, however, the food just isn't very good. I've eaten here several times (for the atmosphere and wifi) and I'm always disappointed. The dishes I've tried were overpriced and not very tasty. The desserts taste like they were... More

And really friendly staff! Yak meat soup and nazi burgers were my faves. Great place to tuck away from the crowds.

Not the cheapest option in town (especially if you're buying in the gift shop below) but a great place to relax and watch the colorful crowds on the street below. Western, Naxi (variations) and Tibetan food available.

We ordered a pepper steak that was surprisingly tender and tasty. We also ordered a sliced beef dish that was fried with peppers and came with rice. It was great.

I have a very sensitive stomach and anticipated some challenges in finding hygienic restaurants in China. In Lijiang, there was only one unanimous choice by all the people and sources we consulted: Lamu’s House of Tibet. Lamu’s is locally known for its cleanliness and sound hygiene practices, and it does not use MSG. Indeed, we were warned to avoid fancy,... More

Cute little family run place that you have to look up at the upstairs windows to find. Staff are smiley and happy which we found rare in China! We went there one night just for drinks and the next night for food. I had the veggie lasagne which was really good and my husband had a pizza that looked fresh... More
