My wife and I finally ate at Yak and Yeti. Quaint little cafe, neat, clean enough, cafeteria style place with decent prices. The food is flavorful, tastes okay, but hard to distinguish the differences from one dish to another, kind like some Mexican foods, or fast food Chinese. We tried it, it was okay; been there, done that, time to... More

Delicious lunch! The environment is pretty basic - (heads-up, no table service...you pick up your good once it's ready & "bus" your dishes & toss your garbage post-meal)...but a delightful experience. Staff provided helpful recommendations re: lunch combos. Will definitely be back!

I haven’t been to main location; however the small café version near REI is a great spot for a quick bite eat. The food is tasty and the prices are good. The rice bowls are excellent and filling and they also have an excellent bakery for dessert “to go”.

I popped in here several weeks ago to grab a bite to eat before heading to an evening engagement. After some deliberation, I settled for a bowl of potato lentil soup. It was absolutely divine, very flavorful and filling, with a wonderfully silky texture. I was a bit disappointed no roll came with the bowl of soup, but I know... More

Great little hole in the wall on Spenard Rd has the best Himalayan food in Anchorage! Ok, maybe it's the only Himalayan food in Anchorage... but it's a fusion of the finest in town: Indian and Nepalese cuisine. Very tasty, unique, and one of my favorite places to eat. Friendly staff, loads of vegetarian options, (plenty of non-vegetarian as well),... More

I am not Indian, but I ADORE Indian food. I could eat it every day. My friend in Anchorage is much less enthusiastic, but consented to be dragged here. Himalayan is a little different from Indian, and my friend thought that was an excellent thing! We had the pork vindaloo, which was a little sweeter and less spicy than what... More

This little restaurant in Spenard is a hidden gem. There are only a few tables but it there's a wait it is typically short. I had a lamb dish and a vegetarian dish with lentils. Both were great. You also must try to the Chai tea. It can be ordered hot or cold - I had it hot since the... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in anchorage. Pork vindaloo is amazing! I enjoy the second location for a quick lunch or to pick up on the way home from work.

I LOVE this place!! The service is top notch. The chai is addicting. Oh the food....it's truly the best!! I always order the delectable lamb dishes. Absolutely delicious food. It's a cute local's restaurant that always delivers. Thank you for opening a fast lunch spot that serves up, as well.

We don't have any experience with Himalayan food so can't rate the food. Very inexpensive menu and very much like Indian food. Service is friendly and helpful. This place has absolutely no ambiance, but we liked most of the food.
