We only tried this restaurant once and will for sure return. The food was generally very very good, especially the momos- as other reviewers say. The flavors were quite mild; but I had that with tibetian food before, so not sure whether that might be typical for thai type of cuisine. Its a great place for a relaxed and quite... More

We were 6 and our small dog to try this place upon recommendations of another friend. Go there, try the Tibetan dumplings, try them all you won't be disappointed. Service was very nice and friendly with the dog.

Was maybe expecting too much given the reviews but was quite disappointed. The meal was traditional but pretty bland. Service was very nice and helpful. I'm not sure I'll return.

As a Tibetan living in a country (Saigon, Vietnam) where there are no Tibetan restaurants, one craves all the dishes you get to eat at home. Well I had to travel all the way to Zurich to have the best meal that reminded me of my parents kitchen. Like a child had to remember my momo eating etiquette!!! Do not... More

We visited Shangrila for dinner on a Tuesday evening and enjoyed every minute! The menu is only in German but the waitress was more than happy to translate / recommend dishes. Tibetan food is similar to Chinese with it's own spin. The beef momos [akin to dim sum] were really good as was the chilli and ginger yak main course.... More

I went with family and friends to this restaurant for dinner two weeks ago as there are not that many great, authenticate and family-run restaurant in Zurich. We were so thrilled we did.

There cannot be many Tibetan restaurants in the Western world - this is the first for me, and I travel extensively! I have now dined here 3 times and have never been disappointed, the (English speaking) waitress is always very helpful with suggestions and outlining the house specials of the day. The menu is comprehensive and the food - delicious,... More

This is a nice little cozy tibetian restaurant, with excellent food and great hosts!! The momos (beef & veg) are to die for..i personally preferred the beef ones..apart from tht we had ordered fried rice and some fried veg fritters (assorted), that was nice as well along with rice wine.. its probably a little expensive but they serve good portion.....
