The first floor is for toilet and kitchen. The second and top floor are for the main dining and drinking. The third floor is actually a huge open roof partially covered with a Tibetan style canopy offfering better views of the surrounding area including Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Street below.

Beside traditional Tibetan food and new type of food, they also cook good quality western food including Indian and Nepal food and vegetarian food as well.

While waiting for your order or in the course of your eating, you may read the message from the notebooks on the shelf in the middle of the top floor. If you have passion, you can also write down your feeling and thinking about yourself and your Lhasa trip on a notebook…
