If u decide to visit lijiang and need a relief from the Chinese food and the crowded Street, this is the place to go. The tibetian food is excellent and healthy and the owner in lovely.

Very atmospheric and cozy restaurant with awesome Tibetan food. I highly recommend the traditional salty yak butter tea or,for those who prefer fusion cuisine, the apple pie with ice cream and hot chocolate sauce :)

We spent six days in Lijiang and ate LaMu's three or four times. From Breakfast to dinners, we sampled many items on the menu and they were all prepared very well. If making a stop, I highly recommend their apply pie turnovers. You will not be disappointed.

We have been here 2 times and if we would have discovered sooner we would have been here all 4 days. Coffee and food is great plus the atmosphere is just wonderful. Eat here!!! American Breakfast is the way to go.

Can't comment on their Tibetan and Chinese food which we didn't try Pros: Very friendly staff and our server spoke English well. Interior design was eclectic and interesting Cons: We ordered a burger, pizza, tuna sandwich and soup. They have a small indoor brick wood-fired oven in the corner so I had high expectations about the pizza. Unfortunately, the pizza... More

We never had Tibetan dishes before so this place really got our attention. We mainly ordered typical Tibetan food. I was very pleased about the yak meat dumplings. They tasted lovely. You get ten of them, which is just enough. The yak cheeseballs were good too. Although very filling. We were especially interested in this, rather infamous drink, yak butter... More

I had really high expectations of this place after reading about it. I would say the venue is average to a little above average. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things. The soup was fabulous but for the price it was a tiny bowl, not even enough soup for just one person. I do a lot of traveling and living... More

I liked this place and gave it a good review. However I did point out that one of its heroes, displayed on the wall as one climbs the rickety stairs to the dining area was a bit iffy. Some robot decided that commenting mildly on Michael Jackson's proclivities was out of order. So OK he was a good guy like... More

We ate here for breakfast and dinner on several occasions. The restaurant was across the street from our hotel, The Sanhe. You walk up some wooden stairs to the small and attractive restaurant. For breakfast we had muesli and a gigantic omelette with good coffee. For dinner, among other things, we had borscht (spelled some other way) which was unexpectedly... More
