Great for Valentines Day

This is the local Indian for us and we hadn't been there so decided to give it a try for Valentines Dyay. When we arrived it was very empty which is a bad sign but the decor was lovely and the staff were in traditional indian clothing which was lovely. However we did not know that it was a set... read more

The food here is soooooo good, it is like 'soul food', and proper hot and spicy as I like it. The service is excellent and there is also a proper wine list. Back to Greece now, and I really miss a genuine Indian food like it!

We had a few takeaways from here which were all generally very good and was reasonably priced. We booked a table of 6 last night, the decor of the restaurant is nice however, the service wasn't great. We were waiting a long time even to get menus which we had to ask for. Our mains came out before our starters... More

Had food delivered. Astonished by just how much salt had been added to everything, the poppadoms were very salty, the lime chutney was mind-bendingly salty, the rice was salty, the other dishes were salty. Food seems to be very hit and miss but generally going down hill. Mouth felt a bit like i'd had a bad Chinese take away. I... More

This was my second visit to Yak and Yeti. After a very nice previous experience, I gave it 4 stars but this time it was completely different. In spite of being hardly busy, it took a long time for the food to come. Barring the chicken tikka, everything else was badly cooked. there were too much of unnecessary spices to... More

Lovely evening spent with family for a special birthday celebration. The staff made the evening special with the their attentive but not intrusive service. Food fabulous - the Nepalese twist takes this away from your traditional Indian restaurant. Great range of spicey and non spicey dishes with lots of flavour. Loved the balloons placed above the table for us

Visited restaurant and although the food was good, the service had a bit to be desired, had to remind them of what we had ordered. Portions were rather small, espially the nan bread.

The food here is fine and I would probably return on a non event night (three couples there for the valentines evening set meal). The staff were very polite and are of course the customer facing side of the place but organisation was chaotic and the overall management for last night needs to really review their organisation of the whole...
