I’ve been to this place in all four seasons, with big groups and small, and there has never been a time when it has been anything but excellent. :)

The first thing I noticed when I walked in the door was everything is clean and in good repair. It looks inviting, a good place to relax. Large mural paintings show Tibetan scenes. The menu includes Yak burgers! You can order a tasty meal, or try interesting ice cream flavors, or just have a coffee.

I ordered the Yak burger just for the novelty of it. Reminded me of bison meat. As an American who likes to have a hamburger fairly often this was a nice break from all the Chinese food I've had lately. The fries were crispy and hot and also tender inside.

For dessert, I had a scoop of Yak Track ice cream and another of their Salted Caramel Peanut in a cup. Both were really good but I'll have two scoops of the Salted Caramel Peanut next time - yum!!!

The management is friendly and hospitable. When you stop by tell them you read my review and Eddie says hello. :)

I live on the opposite side of town, so going here is only for special occasions, but my friends and I always look forward to a meal here with childlike excitement. This small burger/ice cream place is the only of its kind in this city, but I would still rank it higher than most places I've eaten in America. The yak burgers and chicken are wonderful, but the ice cream is downright incredible. 10/10 a must-go

The place was amazing. Was a big and spacious inside with lots of natural light. Food was excellent and ice cream I have no words for. This western restaurant is really western in taste and standards compared to most of the Chinese places. Ice cream was truly rich and authentic in taste. This has really added great western treat in Xining. Great Job I wish I can come back to Xining and eat here again.
