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

I've not been to Tibet, so I don't know how authentic Lamu's Tibetan offerings are,but they are tasty, if a bit expensive. We had the tomatoey soup called tendlik and dumplings. Nicely prepared and served in a laid back, comfortable atmosphere. Lamu's is definitely a whole experience type of place. No one thing will blow you away, but all together... More

We went to this restaurant because of Tripadvisor and enjoyed our time. 1. Food - good. Everything we had, though expensive, was very good. 2. Service - great with a smile. The gave warm water with real lemons/limes and the waitress was generally friendly. 3. Space -although not easy to find, it is a warm space on the second floor.

If you want to enjoy some good food, without glutamate, with lovely people (because each time we come we go there to salute them), and really good food in all that busy Lijiang, just go there !

I have lived in Lijiang for two years, and Lamu's is still a favorite. If it's a rainy monsoon day, order the chai ("Indu nai cha"). It is delicious and comforting. Also try the Tibetan bread with honey as a snack - it is served warm and fresh. On a hot summer day, this is a great place to drink... More

Simple, tasty dishes. The restaurant feels like someone's home rather than restaurant. Smiley service.
