“Delicious Curry and Delightful Owner”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had a fantastic curry here and a long chat with Tara and her sister who was visiting from Nepal. Both lovely and interesting people, their stories complimented the meal perfectly.

Try the eggplant paste with some of the homemade bread, a first for us and excellent to go with our chicken curries.

“great view in ancient historical town, and absolute lovely food”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Shangrila, a city that was so mystical, most people doesn't believe its existence.
But it exist, no lie.
And how about living in the ancient part of it ?
In one of its historical building ?
Used to be the route of tea supplies? The horses brought the tea supplies on its cobblestone road.
And the weather very comfortable.
Combining all of them, i sat in this restaurant, with lovely food(Yak meat) and warm Black Yunnan tea.
Ahhh, what do i want more? It's a perfect situation already . . .

“A wonderful gem in a beautiful city.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by the Lonely Planet and I am very glad to have searched for this place. I went with 2 other friends and we found the place to have a wonderful atmosphere and was decorated beautifully.The staff were very friendly and the owner made every effort to ensure us and other diners were completely satisfied. She also went that little bit further by helping us choose our orders and telling us a little something about each dish, handing out recommendations and so forth. She and her staff were knowledgable about the food and what we were recommended was nothing short of perfect. The menu will suit most tastes - a variety of Chinese, Tibetan, Indian and Western choices and the drinks menu is great for those who drink alcohol and for those who do not. I hope more people find this place and enjoy it just as much as we did. Thanks Tara.

“Great atmosphere, food and hospitality!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This place is a very special and cozy place to experience delicious local food, in a traditional building rich in history and local culture. The hospitality is also a special plus! The owner is a fascinating women who is being engaged in preserving this place and also the Tibetan culture in the region. I highly recommend this place, also for vegetarians!
