Ah Ma La

Top choice

Tibetan

in Xining

Delish Tibetan food, tacky decor, English-speaking Tibetan boss, picture menu. That pretty much sums up the Ah Ma La experience. Slide into a booth seat and order up authentic Tibetan dishes such as yak tongue and mómo (馍馍, dumplings) and wash it down with Lhasa beer. The restaurant is along Nanshan Donglu, opposite the Tibetan Hospital.

At the time of writing, Ah Ma La was opening another restaurant just round the corner on Jianxin Lu.
