“Delicious Food, friendly Service at good prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

I come to Amsterdam quite often and this restaurant is my favourite at the moment! The food is lovely, service is not just polite but really friendly and for this central location prices are REALLY fair! The restaurant itself is quite small but clean (restrooms are modern and chic!) and the hospitality of the place makes you feel comfortable. We had two different sorts of wine to go with our food which were both delicious, too! Try it, you won't regret it.

“Very tasty food at great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

The food was spot on, the service friendly and welcoming, and the bill pleasantly reasonable for Amsterdam.

It wasn't the quickest service but that's because they had only one person cooking everything from scratch in the little open kitchen at the back of the restaurant. I'd rather have a couple of beers, enjoying my friend's company waiting for quality fresh food than complain about the fact it took a little while to come out.

The following night we went to a more 'upmarket' Asian restaurant, paid double the price for half the quality. We should have gone back to Snow Lion.

You won't be disappointed and you genuinely feel you're experiencing home cooking as you would in Tibet.

We had a wonderful dinner of Momos which are dumplings full of delicious meat or vegetarian. The service is superb and food is exquisite at this place! Make this a stop on your tour , we went twice!!

“Get a taste of Tibet in the heart of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

The food is based on typical Tibetian cuisine and little efford has been made to adapt it to the European taste - which is just what I love about it. We just stayed in Amsterdam for a weekend but went eating there twice. The Snow Lion offers a wide selection of vegetarian meals.

“Interesting,worth a try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

The service is good and the menu interesting.My husband had spicy ribs to start with and they were delicious.My deep fried cheese pastries were ok.Main courses, although tasty, both tasted similar.We requested medium spice but the dishes were too mild for our taste.
Overall worth trying .A liitle different from the usual Asian restaurants
