Good lunch

The menu here is not huge, but it still offers a good selection, mostly focused on a rice bowl served with something (tikka masala or curry or something similar) and their sandwiches. All the times I have been the food has been of high quality and served quickly.

I love this place! We had a huge party with multiple toddlers and they catered to us perfectly. We were put in the back room and served amazing food at really reasonable prices.

This was a wonderful find for my wife and sons and I. The hot was borderline fire for me and was absolutely perfect. This will be a new staple restaurant for us here in anchorage. Wife had the spinach and cheese curry dish and loved it. The garlic naan was amazing. I cannot remember the name of the appetizer we... More

Upon a suggestion of a good friend, we recently tried the food offerings at Yak & Yeti Himalayan Restaurant -- and were pleased with the meal & service :)) The menu combines traditional Tibetan dishes, along with ones that are Indian. I enjoyed the Tibetan steamed buns -- nice texture and taste! Portions are large, and prices were reasonable too.... More

I have driven past this restaurant many times and said "I need to go there." Finally, I remembered it when it was open and when we had enough time to go! I expected good service from the reviews but have to say that wasn't my experience. I'll preface that with the fact that we got there about 1 hour before... More

Loved our lunch so much upon our arrival in Anchorage, we went back a week later for Saturday lunch before heading to the airport. It was closed for lunch on the weekends! So disappointed. Tibetan buns with fried pork, lamb curry, and a delicious lentil dish with naan. And a full house of locals!

First let me say that the service here is fantastic. Friendly, quick, and attentive. The food, however, left something to be desired. I eat Indian food quite often, and I ordered a fairly standard item. While it was not bad, it certainly did not taste like what I was used to. The garlic nan bread was also a bit strange...I'm...

Is how painfully full my belly feels right now. Impossible to stop eating this incredible food. We had samosas (average), vegetarian soup (amazing), mutter paneer (amazing part deux), and goat curry (awesome according to my meat-eating hubby). Chai was a great finishing touch. Atmosphere was cute in that hole-in-the-wall sort of way. Go here!!
