Read the great reviews and it was only a 20 min walk from the hotel, was looking forward to it, only to find a burger place has taken over the spot. Went to a small bar across the street and up one. mall, packed, mostly locals it felt like. Great soups, good food.

I'm not exactly the most adventurous when it comes to cuisine choices but as a good neighborly gesture, decided to give this a try. I was not disappointed. It was eating a combination Chinese and Indian cuisines but at the same time it is not both. Tried their yak yoghurt and their beef stew. There was less meat than expected.... More

Momos. Just order the Momos. They are so unbelievable that we had them as an appetizer, main course and then even ordered another appetizer instead of dessert. This is always one of our stops in Amsterdam. The homemade sauce is wonderful. The location is great and the service is excellent. Don't miss out.

My wife and I went for dinner on a Sunday evening. Our first time experiencing Tibetian food and we weren't disappointed. Their momos and fried rice tasted fresh and great. Only reason I am not rating them 5 star is due to lack of multiple card payment options. They only accept Maestro (?!) card or cash.

Never had the Tibetan version of the asian dumplings, but it was very good. Tried the veggie and pork versions and have to say the veggie version is better. Goat curry was a close second.

Personeel tried explaining us different dishes on the menu, but we found the choices simply too much. Foods tasted more Western than Asian, but tasted alright at the end of the day. We were looking more for authentic taste, so we were a bit disappointed. Portion was ok. Expected more variation.

A "simple" restaurant driven by a gentle tibetan couple. Very original food (quite different from a thai or a chinese !), so, something to discover/explore !

A brilliant place to eat out in Amsterdam! We were greeted by a lovely waitress who was very friendly throughout our whole meal. We were quickly given menus and drinks and our order taken. The menu itself was very extensive but I opted for the chicken noodles, whilst my friends chose steamed dumplings and sweet and sour chicken. Each meal... More
