Can't believe this place isn't busier!

Went in for dinner and there were only 3 other people there.......don't get it. The food is wholesome, healthy, fair portions, and it had a really great taste! You can choose from several different dishes so I ordered the rice bowl with 3 different types of entrees. It was under twelve dollars... read more

A friend convinced me to drop into Yak and Yeti on Northern Lights after a race this weekend. It's right next to Kaladi Bros in the REI Mall, and next time I am heading for a meeting at Kaladi's, I will probably suggest we go right instead of left. It was peaceful, fast, and delicious. I liked the way the... More

Stopped by Yak & Yeti's on Northern Lights Blvd. Service was quick and food was good. This was my first for Himalayan food and I had a combination plate over rice with three different ingredients. Well worth the stop.

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.
