It is a very cozy family restaurant with great and tasty food. The atmosphere is relaxed. Moreover, it is an experience to hear the history of the family, who can tell about how it is to live in Lhasa.” Said Sabine on Tripadvisor.

Tibetan Family Kitchen provides an extensive menu, including both meaty dishes and vegetarian cuisines. Travelers can choose local Tibetan food, Chinese dishes and Indian food. It is worth to try food here, especially if you are a vegetarian, as there is not that much vegetarian restaurant in Lhasa.

If you have enough spare time, it is also worth to join the cooking course. You can study how to cook a tasty local Tibetan food, such as tsampa, momo dumplings and noodles, etc. Later, you can enjoy your masterpiece with your friends and teach them how to cook it by yourselves.
