First Review by Marike

overrated - Edit

Went with high expectations but were disappointed. The decor is nice but the food is bland. Service was good but no vegan desserts. Bit expensive. There are much better places to go in Lisbon

Pros: decor

Cons: no vegan dessert

nice and quick food - Edit

We came in to Os Tibetanos when they were about to close for lunch time (around 15.30). They welcomed us, however not all staff speaks English. Vegan dishes are marked on the menu. Prices are normal compared to Portuguese standards.

Pros: Vegan, dairy free food available

Cons: no real Coca Cola, only organic brands

Nice, but Pricey - Edit

I had quite a good time at Os Tibetanos on New Year's Eve - the place was busy, but they managed to find a seat for us despite not having reservations, and the staff were friendly and helpful. That said, there wasn't a huge amount of Tibetan food on the menu, with it seemingly being more of a generic Asian affair; and the amount of dumplings you actually receive might be a little low for the price. All that said, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was appealing, so I'd recommend giving it a go if you're not on a budget.

Disappointed - Edit

Very simple food, vaguely tibetan and overpriced, in a business hotel zone. One dish with plain rice, green beans and tofu curry: 10.50 euros. You can eat better cheaper and/or more vegetarian food in almost any other place in this list. You may pay for the zone but not for the food. Disappointed.

Pros: kind staff, fast service

Cons: looks a bit fake, overpriced

decent, simple food. great atmosphere - Edit

We had dinner there tonight and were not impressed. The vegan options weren't that many. We had the momo starter which was like fried pieces of dough (not bad), the momo entree (dumplings) filled with seitan and the mango curry (meh). All in all, nothing special. No vegan desserts

vibrant addition to the city's veg scene - Edit

What a great surprise... peaceful atmosphere, air-conditioned, spotless. I was only going to get momos but the plate of the day looked so good, so I went for it: fantastic! The momos were also superb and once you've tried them you'll probably be back for more.

Regarding comments about the blandness, note that, as in many Portuguese restaurants, you have to specially request the hot sauce (which is often homemade). This place has an absolutely killer—and spicy—house concoction with habaneros. They were even nice enough to give me extra for my takeaway.

Highly recommended, this place adds a nice bit of diversity to Lisbon's already great vegetarian offerings.

Pros: flavorful, friendly, unique

Muito bom - Edit

Local com uma decoração única, muito acolhedor e calmo. A ementa é vasta e sem dúvida que o difícil é mesmo escolher. Os pratos são bem servidos e as sobremesas também são uma boa aposta. Preços são um pouco elevados, mas justificáveis pela localização do espaço e pela qualidade do mesmo. Não foi o melhor vegetariano que comi... Mas quase.
Atendimento cordial e simpático. Vale a pena experimentar e não é requisito ser vegetariano, pois facilmente ficam surpreendidos com boa comida e apetitosa.

Pros: Qualidade, Espaço, Atendimento

Nice Atmosphere But They Lacked Spices Completely - Edit

Its a very loveley atmosphere and well decorated.the service is so friendly but if you really want to eat tibetan food ,you are at the wrong place.it tastes like not so well spiced italian food.the momos where deep fried bread with herbes provencale which was good but not what you want to eat in a tibetan restaurant.the spinach curry was very bland and came with cauliflower at the side with nothing on it.thanks god there where a bit of coriander.im sorry to say that it was lisbons worst restaurant

Pros: Atmosphere, Service, Location

Cons: Food

Atmosphere sets the standard - Edit

It took the 4th visit to Lisbon to finally get round to visiting this place due to the amazing selection of veggie places in this amazing city. I'll cut to chase here and say it's a 5 for first impressions and ambience but a 3 for food so certainly deserves a 4 overall. The building is absolutely gorgeous and once inside you are mesmerised by the temple-like tranquility and ambience. Friendly staff look after you in every way possible way. I'd suggest a seat in the covered garden area which is serene and inviting. The wine list is good and at €8.20 for a bottle of house, you definitely cannot grumble. Now to the food. We had samosas which were decent but not earth shattering followed by a seitan and a tofu curry. Both tasty but again, uninspiring. As others have suggested, the food isn't worth the price. At €10+ for a main course I was expecting something pretty special. On the plus side, it was a fresh change to go to a veggie place in Lisbon that wasn't a buffet. Yes, I would eat here again.

Pros: gorgeous setting, friendly staff, clear vegan labelling

Cons: over-priced food
