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.

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
