“Average food but good service”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Tried their bobi with 4 different vegetables and thought it was an average dish as the vegetables were common cauliflower, potatoes, tomatoes and cucumber with no unique or local cooking. Also tried their mashed potatoes fried with vegetables and it was blend with just lightly cooked vegetables placed on the potatoes. Their ginger honey drink came with lots of Ginger but no trace of honey.

However, the restaurant was nicely decorated with a traditional Tibetan style fireplace topped with friendly and efficient service from the waiting staff.

“Old School Lhasa”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

So much has changed in Lhasa over the last 10 years but this place remains the same. The affordable backpacker fare is accompanied by tasty Tibetan cuisine. There are certainly better places food wise but nothing compares to Tashi's atmosphere. Stop by for a lemon tea and some delicious apple momo's.

“Brilliant food - just brilliant!”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Try the bobbi ... you won't be disappointed. The food is fabulous - they have cold beer - the service is fantastic. The only disappointment - we found it on the last day and we couldn't return for more of their fabulous food. (It offered quite different foods to other restaurants in Lhasa ... just go - you won't be disappointed.)

“Great Value & Character”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

This place isn't as polished as some of the other 'international' eateries in Lhasa (and there are a lot of good places) but it's the best value one we've found and had the fastest service. The food tastes home-cooked, in a good way, and there are a few interesting things on the menu (apple momo, bobbi) that you don't see in too many other places.

“Brilliant cheap and tastey food with friendly service.”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

I had the yak bobbis which was vegetables and yak meat in tortia wraps with cream cheese. I also shared french fries and yak chillie with my wife. It was all delicious and the beer was the cheapest in Lhasa and cold. Our waitress was delightful.
