Worth the journey!

Fantastic, varied menu. Great service and amazing food. Drove up from Penzance especially to eat there and well worth it. Will come again and no hesitation recommending to others.

Based on my first takeaway from the Yak and Yeti it is the best takeaway Indian/Nepalese in Truro - however the level of competition is very low; hence the average rating. They had a good checking system to make sure I got what I had ordered. The portions were large and satisfactorily cooked. They were as described.

My father had visited just the week before and hasn't shut up about it since so on a Wednesday night the family went to Truro from Penzance for no special occasion ....it was fantastic! Friendly welcoming staff, brilliant service and 5* Nepalese food!

We ordered our first takeaway from here at the weekend. The website is very easy to navigate and the menu was very extensive with good descriptions of the dishes. We placed the online order and paid by card ready for us to collect ourselves (we were advised It would be ready in about 30 minutes) After a 13 mile round... More

We'd never tried Nepalese food before and fancied a change so found Yak & Yeti after being recommended by family. It was lighter than Indian curry and more fragrant (a bit like Thai) and the staff were friendly and helpful with recommendations. We had great service, despite it being a very busy night and had a lovely meal.

Vibrant and cosy atmosphere with helpful and polite staff. All food seemingly freshly prepared and cooked with great flavours. It is a diversion from the usual balti/tandoori etc and well worth a visit if you want something slightly different. It was my third trip in the last couple of years and I'd happily go back soon.

This is our second take away curry from Yak & Yeti. Wow! The flavours and freshness of their food is truly superb and we will certainly be repeat customers. Would struggle to beat such quality, well impressed, thank you.
