If your in Beijing and you are looking for a real Tibetan restaurant experience with Yak meat and Yak Milk with local Tibetan brewed beer then this is a very good choice. Relatively easy to find upstairs in a line of restaurants not far from the Silk Market or Jianguamon (spelling) station near the No 1 road! Food is ok... More

A friend of mine living in Beijing took me this place saying it is an incredible place and my expectations were high. After we arrived to the place, ate the food and enjoyed the performance all my expectations were easily overcame! Food was fantastic and seems to be a very authentic tibetan place, the decoration makes you feel you are... More

My third time there. We turned up without a reservation and they made space for us. No request is too difficult for the staff. The entertainment makes you want to go to Lhasa. I can recommend the field mushrooms, the yak meat and the lamb dishes. A good night out and not too expensive. Gentle, modest people who are proud... More

This is one of the chain restaurant situated close to the silk market in Beijing. Was recommended by a friend who is very enthusiastic about Tibetan music, culture, and food. The restaurant's deco is very cozy and represents a typical Tibetan family. Food here are created by authentic Tibetan chefs and served by Tibetan people. Lamb chops and yak butter... More

Last week in August, we were taken by our host to Makye Ame (The Old Grandma) restaurant in the city center of Beijing. It is located in a very nice neighborhood and it is very nicely decorated and is very clean. It is a Tibetan restaurant and provides a large selection of Tibetan food and drinks. It also offers very... More

Went here with my wife and enjoyed both the food and the ambience. Easy to find and not far from the metro, this authentic Tibetan restaurant is a must if you like traditional food at great prices.

This was a great find. The staff was really friendly and attentive. The food was interesting(the leg of lamb looked awesome of you have a group) and delicious. The entertainment was really good for a small restaurant. Great for a family looking for something different.

Went here with some colleagues from work. A bit off the beaten track, with your back to the door turn right at the main entrance to the silk market and walk to the corner of the next block. Turn right and then your next left and you will find bars/restaurants and the Tibetan is mid way down. Good atmosphere and... More

Great place and excellent food. There was a Tibetan group playing and dancing all night long... It is a wonderful experience and a definitely a place to go when in Beijing. The best tables are the ones close to the stage.

First of all they had lost our reservation, which didn't actually matter seeing as there was hardly anyone in the restaurant, but still seemed to cause quite a lot of fuss. The food was quite disappointing compared to Tibetan food we had tried previously - Makye Ame's version was much more greasy and stodgy by comparison. The decor is interesting... More
