AKA New Mandala

The New Mandala was my go to spot for food during my time in Lhasa, with at least five visits for lunch or dinner. Service was adequate but not always attentive, with the main staff able to take orders in English and Chinese. Food was tasty and cheap. The curry set meal (meat or vege) is a... read more

Went for early dinner, and the sunset light over Barkor sq was a treasure. Yes they have an English menu, and the selections are plenty. Tried a Nepali dish and it was tasty. Yes the food is a notch better in some other places, yet the people watching is phenominal. The locals seem to be a pretty cheerful bunch, which... More

A great location with fantastic views. We ate here twice on our recent trip. The menu has great variety, we loved the Yak Dumplings. The beer was always very cold. The service was good and the staff were obliging. There is an English menu with pictures to help with ordering. We enjoyed every dish that was served, and the portions... More

Great restaurant in Lhasa with a spectacular view of Barkhor Square. Sit on the rooftop at sunset and enjoy a Lhasa beer with a variety of Tibetan, Nepalese, India and Chinese food options. This restaurant is designed for tourists as everything is in English and you'll find mostly tourists here.

Convenient location but I wasn't impressed as it doesn't offer any dishes that you can't get anywhere else at a better price. English menu and English speaking staff is helpful.

Whilst the food was absolutely fine, go to this restaurant for the stunning view of Barkhor square. We spent a great hour or so eating, drinking and people watching. Food was good, extremely cheap and the staff very friendly. Highly recommend!

The rooftop dinning area offers a majestic view of Barkhor Square and is a splendid spot for people-watching. The food is quite good, too!

A clean restaurant which offers a variety of cuisines at a reasonable price. Of course you should not expect western continental food ! But if you stick to Chinese, Tibetan or Indian Curries you will find this place good value for money. Since it overlooks the Barkhor Square it is the ideal place to have lunch after visiting the Jokhang... More

This restaurant has a good hotel attached. Very beautiful. Food is good and cheaper than most of the road side restaurant and charged the same price. Worth a try in beautiful setting. Hotel also very nice but hot water may not be there if other guests showered first. This is a common problem in tibet.
