My husband and I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. As always, the reviews made our decision to dine here worth while. There is absolutely no atmosphere, but that didn't matter because we went for the food. Enjoy!

The service was great and the food came out very quickly. We had a little time to kill before our flight, so it was a perfect way to kill time and make it to the airport on time. It was a nice change from the other restaurants in Anchorage. Our food was good, not the best Himalayan food that I've... More

We went to this restaurant multiple times on our recent alaska vacation. We are vegetarians and had the combo plate of dal bhat with veg kofta and palak panner with naan. The food was very close to home cooking and it was soo tasty. After having two meals we were looking forward to having our final dinner at anchorage at... More

If you are in Anchorage and have not eaten here, you are doing yourself a disservice. The staff and owners are fast, efficient, friendly, and amazing. The Indian-Himalayan food is delicious, wonderful, and most importantly, authentic. The Yak and the Yeti present a great dining experience off of Spenard. Have a meal and let the food speak for itself.

Returning from a climbing expedition in Alaska, I and my Indian friends were looking for a place to eat Indian food when we found this place. The restaurant has an authentic Nepali / Indian kitchen. We ordered a huge spread of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food and naan and rice and everything was super delicious. This is the best place... More

We enjoyed the Yak & Yeti while on vacation. We split an order of the Himalayan Dumplings & Spicy Goat Curry. Both were delicious (though the curry wasn't that spicy). We were with another couple, so we shared naan with their two chutney's and some samosas as well. All was quickly prepared and tasted fantastic! Also a small cute atmosphere... More

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”.
