Welcome to Dunya Restaurant, Bar and Balcony - located in the old center of Lhasa nearby the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple.

The idea of Dunya originated from Tibetan friends and foreign guides who wanted a place to relax and enjoy good food. The wish was to create a hygienic environment where visitors could meet, relax, eat, drink... The desire was a place that was Tibetan and ‘home’.

The word Dunya means ‘the world’ in more than ten languages – Arabic, Hausa, Turkish, Uzbek, Farsi, Pashto, Urdu, Hindi, Nepali, Malay and Bahasa Indonesia. As we are situated in Lhasa, on top of the world and are from around the world, the name Dunya was chosen. The ideas which formed Dunya are the same standards we strive to uphold. That is to serve excellent cuisine in a clean, cozy atmosphere.

Originally a Dutch, American, Tibetan parnership; today Dunya is wholly Tibetan owned & managed. Refurbished & welcoming locals as well as remaining a favorite of western travellers and tour groups Dunya is a place to meet friends, relax, listen to music, play cards or Kirim (a traditional Tibetan game) as well as enjoy good food and coffee.

We hope you will include us in your stay in Lhasa.
