Fairly Authentic.

Having spent time in the Himalayas just weeks before coming to this restaurant, my expectations were low. But I was pleasantly surprised! I loved it! The food was great and the chai was even better! If you are looking for something that is different than anything else, this is the place!

Sometimes on long vacations we like to take a break from the routine food and try something different.This place is a nice beginning to it.The tea was with milk and sugar and it tasted very close to the actual indian "chai".The goat curry was very good too.The rice was however on the less cooked side-being slightly coarse.Overall the food was...

This place was great for a quick bite to eat. The food was delicious and cheap, good for vegetarians. They also have a huge selection of deserts.

I usually eat at the Yak and Yeti by Tidel Wave books. But they are both very good. Also they have great bakery items.

Had curry chicken. Just curry sauce with small pieces of cut up Cornish hen with the bone still in. The sauce was ok but spent most of the time picking bones out to make sure I didn't choke. If had been deboned with some onions and peas in it could have been much better. Good fast friendly service

I've eaten at Yak and Yeti about 20 times (the restaurant, not the cafe which isn't as good). I've never been disappointed with the food, and I've eaten or tasted pretty much everything on the menu. It's a small restaurant and service is casual and pleasant. I always leave happy. I especially like Baigan Bharta, marinated eggplant cooked with garam... More

Great food. The inside is way better than the outside. Try it! If you like Nepali food, curries etc, [I DO], you will not be disappointed.

Anchorage has a good amount of great restaurants, but if you want some different flavors check out the Yak and Yeti. They serve Indian and Tibetan dishes. It may be hard to find and parking can be an issue it offers some great alternatives to the usual fare available in Anchorage. I visit Anchorage occasionally and this is one of... More

We had the pork vindaloo wrap and the garbanzo bean with pork in the rice bowl . The spices are delicious. We were very pleasantly surprised as this is the strip mall and REI is right up the way....not expecting anything great. It is a very good bargain and quite tasty. The vindaloo could be a bit more spicy but... More

This little place has big flavors! We had the tandoori mushrooms and Samosas followed by the lamb and ground beef dish. Also had garlic nann. All was delicious and the prices are small. It is by on too.
