Friendly efficient service and great food. A perfect meal at the end of our stay in Shangri-La. Their "birthday party" that evening made us visit at lunchtime, yet the fitted us in and we would definitely go again if in town.

Cozy spot with delicious food. We had salad and soup for lunch - fresh and tasty! I even succumbed to a yak burger for dinner and it was great. The bun was not the horrible crumbling white mess of much of China...and the burger was...More
