Friendly, with good food

I went to this restaurant a few times in Lijiang. The food was great, the owners really friendly and hospitable. It is situated upstairs in a nicely decorated room in one of the small squares in Lijiang old town. The momos were excellent. Popular with tour groups, so some nights you need to... read more

My friend and I had dessert and drinks here 2 nights in a row. Lamu's is located in a relatively quiet corner of the Old Town and is quite easy to find. It is located upstairs and is a fun place to eat. We had the apple pie with ice cream and it was surprisingly very good. It is a... More

We very rarely go back to the same place twice, but this was our favourite place in Lijiang. So cosy, lovely staff, great location and very very tasty food. Would highly recommend the Tibetan dumplings (both Yak and veg curry), the lasagne was also lovely, the burger was a little disappointing as it was between two slices of bread rather... More

We had dinner there twice. Tried their fried noodles with chicken, yak meat dumpling, fried rice, diced chicken with cashews. All good, albeit a little oily. The menu is in English and the staff speak a little English as well. Grab the tables along the side and watch the activities on the street.

I was order the butter tea. After I ate it , I thought am I crazy to pay 25 yuan for this. The taste was terrible for me but who know, it may be delicious for the other so you must try one. By the way, their cookies are very delicious.

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.
