Interesting place

The "old" part of Lijiang can be a bit of a modernistic assault on the senses. LaMu's House of Tibet is a quiet haven with a friendly welcome. Food is tasty too, whether you eat Tibetan (yak momos) or Western (good lasagnes). We went there twice.

It has admittedly been a while since I was here, but I ran across it today and it brought back some really fond memories. The food is very good, but the hospitality is great! La Mu herself is a sweet, somewhat "hippyish" woman and a fantastic hostess. She speaks English. My parents visit annually on their trips to LJ from... More

Wasn't impressed with the food, it was fairly flavourless although enjoyed the momo's. Wouldn't eat here again, we ate much better food in some of the places with only Chinese names. Find somewhere that is full, wandered around looking at what they are eating and then point to what you want.

After reading all the great reviews was really looking forward to dinner here. Arrived about 2030 to an empty place and maybe that was the sign. Ordered Yak Momo's, very good and as I remember them from my time in Tibet. Tibeten Fried rice with yak butter potatoes and beef. The pieces of minced beef could be counted on one... More

Looking at Trip advisor, we went hunting for LaMu . Took us an hour and lots of walking, we finally located LaMu on google Map. For those looking, it is very near Sifang Square. However, we did not manage dinner as the restaurant was closed early due to Rain. Today, we went again and we went early. Atmosphere was great... More

An oasis of calm, friendliness and hospitality in Lijiang. Wonderful food to choose from - Western, Chinese or Tibetan and wine by the glass. You have no idea how rare that is in China. Friendly staff, cherry trees and roses outside and great people watching from the window. Wish I was staying longer so I could go back.

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 get there early. Quite a few vegetarian... 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
