Stopped in with some friends for dinner after reading about Dunya on Trip Advisor. We were getting a little tired of the Tibetan food so we thought this would be a great place to eat. Sadly, because it was January, a lot of the items on the menu that we read about online were out of season. The waitress who... More

There are not too many places in Lhasa where you can get some food like the food you r used to. Dunya is one of them. Run by a lovely Dutch lady with great local staff. The food is good and clean, and the service is simply great. The location of the place is central. If you need some break... More

Nice, simple restaurant. Friendly staff. Western and asian food. I think our expectations were a bit too high because of its number 4 rating on this site. Maybe it was the ending season since we found the place almost empty. But it was fine for our first day in Lhasa.

Sometimes when you're travelling, you just get lazy and head for the nearest place when you want to eat. I think that was why we went a second time because the food wasn't worth it. I was sick the first time on the yak burger although I had yak in various forms in Lhasa and didn't suffer. Beer is good... More

Friendly staff and good quality food. Not the best, but certainly worthwhile. Prices a bit high, but when you need something else than tibetan food, this is a good place.
