Unfortunately, we gave in to the nice setting of the restaurant. Comfortable chairs, cozy atmosphere, clean tables. The food is amazingly bad.

This is a great restaurant we visited for breakfast and returned the same evening for dinner. Personally I preferred dinner, but both were perfectly acceptable. Coffee was excellent, the restaurant offers a full bar, not widely available anywhere else. The menu is in English and...More

Lots of cuisines to be had on Nirvana’s menu—including vegetarian options, if you’re so inclined. We enjoyed our breakfasts more than dinners here, but dinner options were good too—but not so much the pizza! The dining area is lovely and communal, so if you’re interested...More

This restaurant is a nice place to spend a few hours. It is seldom very busy. There is a full bar. Power points and WiFi further increase appeal.

Thank you Sue for your kind words, much appreciated! May I kindly remark that our prices are absolutely not higher than elsewhere in Xiahe. Best of luck always :-)

I say this because the food is so insanely good that you WILL find room in your belly to keep eating it! It’s fresh and delicious and there’s many options to choose from. The only problem is that you won’t want to try anywhere else!

Wonderful hotel and restaurant with a chef for western food and another for more local fare. Decor is beautiful, interesting and warm with some touches from Nepal including some of the jewelry for sale at the restaurant’s counter. I highly recommend the yak with onions...More
