A slice of Shangri-La

With an outstanding selection of traditional Tibetan cuisine and a Lhasa-inspired floor show, Ganglamedo makes quite an impression.

As you head to your table you’ll likely notice the painstaking attention to detail applied to the classic Tibetan/Art Deco interior design. Even the menu serves a functionally aesthetic purpose. Amazingly, much of the intricate artwork adorning the walls was created on-site by the restaurant staff.

If you've brought your appetite be sure to order up the Dinner in a Felt Tent (RMB168), a two-person serving of roasted yak meat that is sure to content even the most rapacious of carnivores, and complement that with an order of Weiselinka (RMB36), a delectable asparagus/Tibetan root combo dish. Don't forget to make the time to enjoy the songs of Tibet performed live on the second floor stage (shows generally begin daily at 8 pm).

With the great atmosphere and no-rush attitude of the staff, you’ll probably be tempted to lounge for a moment after dinner and sample one of Tibetan beers (RMB25) available. If you're interested in a little taste of the "Roof of the World" without having to leave Beijing, give Ganglamedo a try.
