We ate at this restaurant twice and loved it! It is owned by a Dutch woman and her family and sets high standards that are appreciated by western guests... The hummus sandwich/coleslaw was very good and filling, the Lassi drinks tasty and the atmosphere was clean, warm, and welcoming. My husband had a Yak sandwich which tasted like roast beef... More

The courteous reception in this big restaurant with a second floor bar and terrace, gives way to a more occidental feel than most Lhasa restaurants. Owned by Dutch proprietors, it offers a traditional menu and some Western offerings including good belgian and Tibetan beer. I have grown fond of the Lhasa brand beer made from barley. The service including prompt... More

Food was tasty, the point was the staff easily spot my wife has minor AMS and recommended some tips and a hot drink (RMB15). Not sure it was the effect of the drink,... More

Eat here for breakfast every day while we stayed in the Yak hotel next door in Lhasa. Not a bad breakfast, a little lacking in choice. Very friendly people and good fun. Dinner is pretty good too with lots of choice. After being out on the road eating rice for a few days, the yak/cheese burger is a welcome sight... More

We were recommended by our Dutch travel agency (Namaste) to visit this restaurant and after some hesitation because it is further away from our hotel we went after all on our first night in Lhasa. Since then we went 3 consecutive evenings as we find it so reassuring to find such a clean place, with very friendly staff and good... More

Initially we wanted to have lunch in the restaurant, specially after reading all the recommendations. Once we arrived to the restaurant we found a note on the door, saying they we're closed for lunch on that day, which was pretty disappointing! But, we decided to go back that evening for dinner, arrived around 6.30 PM and when we entered no... More

I went there with my tourgroup. Everyone agreed: here you can eat the best yak-steak or sizzler in Lhasa, but they serve vegetarian dishes as well. And if you are looking for a good breakgast? This is the place. Excellent and friendly Dutch and Tibetan staff who make you feel very welcome. Notice the spacious balcony and the clean toilets!
