Wordo Tibetan Courtyard

Top choice tibetan in Shigatse

For something a bit special, head out to this stylish Tibetan restaurant near the Summer Palace of the Panchen Lamas. Sit in one of Tibet's loveliest courtyards, bedecked in swirling prayer flags, and enjoy super-fresh Tibetan specialities such as curried potatoes and potato momos (dumplings), as well as more ambitious (and pricey) offerings such as roast lamb's leg (¥320).

At the time of writing, the owners were in the process of setting up a small museum of antiquities and Tibetan cultural objects adjacent to the courtyard.
