Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered tea and some local delicacies (Tibetan snacks) here. The restaurant was filled with a lot of people and it took quite some time to serve my orders. But the food was too oily and the tea contained dense milk.

This place is very easy to find and very easy to like. It is absolutely the place to mingle with friendly, curious locals over delicious sweet milk tea. Tea costs 1RMB per glass/ pour. You have to fetch the tea glass yourself, nestle yourself in...between group of locals and try to get the attention of the tea ladies, they are wearing white coat and carrying large tea pots (hard to miss!). Treats are available throughout the day, but more options in the morning. I was told the place closes at 7pm, so go in the afternoon.More

I found this place thanks to TripAdvisor. I've been hanging out in Lhasa for a bunch of days, but haven't been any scenarios yet because of the National Day holiday of China, during the holiday, everywhere is just so crowded, so I got lots of...time to explore the local food. And the sweet tea was the first Tibetan food I've ever had in Tibet. It's so nice to be there, because I was talking to several Tibetan guys during the tea time, and it was amazing to talk about all different stuff with them. Loved the tea, the noodle and the fried potatoes. But to be honest, I am not a fan of the environment inside the kitchen, especially when you had to see it yourself. But still, it'll be a special experience for foreign people.More

The place consists of rows of long tables and is chockablock full of people. You find a seat and just plonk yourself down. You get some tiny glasses as you enter, and you also put down a bunch of small change. A lady comes around...and fills your glass with sweet tea, and takes 1 yuan from your pile of money. This goes on until you've had your fill of tea. The atmosphere is a jolly one, and we really had fun just mingling with the locals, even if not all of them spoke English.More

Very lovely experience to enjoy the real local daily life of Tibet people in a tea shop, which is very popular for the locals and tourists. Once arrived, a very warm heart feeling and never feel lonely around the very crowd atmosphere with either Tibetan...family or a group of friends, whose they are smoking, relax and chat around you, even though you don't understand their language. Almost spent at least once an hour in the early morning everything to enjoy many small cups of milk tea in Tibetan style for the price of RMB0.7. Staff are very efficient and they'd approach you with the kettle and refill the fresh hot milk tea once the small cup is empty with plenty enough of RMB banknotes around the empty cup. By the way, the taste of Tibetan soup noodle is just fair, but RMB5 only per bowl. Somehow a good way to save the budget and solve the daily meals. Lastly, a small tips..never go to the one which is called 'Spinning Cafe' operated by Hong Kong owner, as the price of coffee is freaking expensive! Not recommended.More

Our guide took us to this place for lunch. The place was packed: full of locals chatting, playing cards and drinking tea. The tea is less than 1 RMB and your glass is being filled regularly. Just put some money on the table and you...won't have an empty glass. The noodles and the potatos (favourite of my kids) were great. My kids loved the place and we went several times. Should go when you are in LhasaMore

You will know that this is a super popular teahouse from the crowd inside! Lots of local people, travellers and even lama eat inside. Get an empty glass and sit down! Sweet tea will then be served at RMB0.8 per cup. It's similar to Singaporean...milk tea. If you like the taste, you can always purchase a jar of it at the counter. You can also pay for other food and drink there. They will give you tokens and you can get the food by yourself. Tibetan noodles (RMB6) here comes with spicy pork or yak meat. The noodle itself is quite chewy. Come and spend an afternoon here like a local Tibetan!More

As we came, we saw this tea house very crowded with local people (could be hundreds of them). We looked for empty seats for a while and finally found a few as some people left. It seemed that local people came here for daily social...purposes. Our tour guide said many people came here also for the milk tea. He said: we also made milk tea with similar ingredients at home, but somehow they served the best one. It was quite fun seeing the waitresses going here and there refilling the cups and charge the customers right after their cups were refilled. The tea was actually way too sweet for me, but I still think it worthwhile to come and sit here for a while.More

This is a place where the locals go for tea and chat. You order and pay for food at the counter and pick them up in the kitchen. You then pick up glasses and A lady will go around the tables and pour tea into...your glasses. Just leave cash on the table and you will be given your change for the tea (70p a glass). Great place to rub shoulders with the friendly locals.More
