Description: Established in 2004, A Bu Lu Zi is Jiuzhaigou's only gourmet Tibetan restaurant. Ke Zhu is our highly trained head chef and he has created a menu which is a mix of traditional and contemporary Tibetan food. Zhuo Ma hosts the family restaurant and looks forward to welcoming you. Many people visit Jiuzhaigou and miss any exposure to Tibetan culture. We enjoy introducing guests to Tibetan culture through food as well as our Eco Lodge and Home Stay experiences. Our wish is that you enjoy your stay in Jiuzhaigou, our home, and hope that our mouth-watering food, Tibetan barley wine and entertainment will add to your experience.

We had the potato dish and a very tasty sizzling yak dish that was recommended to us by our waitress.  They also had barley beer which was very good.  One of the girls sang for us at the end and have us a white scarf as a gift which was very sweet.  It was a nice restaurant, nicely decorated and had Tibetan music playing.  Would go back but it is expensive.

Definitely one of the best meals we have ever had in China. The decor is pretty in tibetan style. Food is delicious. Price is reasonable. Service is excellent plus the tibetan waitress will sing to wish u good luck at the end of the meal. The owner (Zhou Ma) speaks very good English and is very gracious host. I strongly recommend the place!

A nice Tibetan restaurant.
The food was good, they were really nice.
It's in the second floor of the building so look for the sign.

A Bu Lu Zi is a Tibetan restaurant, about 15-20 mins walk from the entrance to the Jiuzhai Valley National Park (westward, opposite direction from Sheraton Hotel and the bus terminal). It is located at the corner, on the first floor of a row of shops.

The restaurant has good ambience, full of character with soft music playing in the background. Having not tried Tibetan food before, the menu in Chinese and English is interesting. We did not want a heavy meal so we had yak meat mini kebabs and Tibetan Mother's potatoes to go with rice. The food was kosher and they served a free flow of Chinese tea. After dinner, a sweet girl, one of the waiting staff, performed a Tibetan song for us which turn out to be some sort of a welcome serenade, and presented us with hada (holy white silk sash) for good fortune/health. What a sweet touch to round off the meal! Price-wise, it's on the middle range but we think it was well worth the unique dining experience.

Walking around in this small town next to the Jiuzhaigou park, we didn't expect to find normal food.
We walked in to A Bu Lu Zi, a Tibetan restaurant, and got a great experience which we will remember every time we think of our trip to China. Everything we ordered was very tasty (which is rare in China) and the service was really amazing. very attentive, very nice girls that were super helpful even without knowing English.
After eating we enjoyed a great surprise as they performed a Tibetan song for us, which turns out to be some sort of good-luck ritual. Very authentic and a great experience!
