I found this restaurant in a local guide as well as recommended on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed......don't be discouraged by the outside of the restaurant! The Lhasa Momos, a dumpling, was simply delicious and you can order as an appetizer or as a main course. The tandoor shrimp was also tasty and the house salad was also... More

Great for Indian food. Most of the food is Indian, but they do have a few Nepali dishes. The chai is great and has free refills.

Delicious food with great service. Hole in the wall atmosphere but not a problem. In a part of town that wouldn't be expected to have such a great restaurant.

Feeling adventurous, my husband and I decided to give Yak and Yeti another try and I'm happy to report that our most recent visit was far better than the previous one. The good: my husband and I tried the Chicken Tikka app and were pleasantly surprised. The chicken was cooked perfectly and had a nice flavorful char on the outside.... More

After a week in Alaska, we were craving some good ole Daal and Rice. This place hit the spot. The Katmandu Daal, Veg Koftas and Lamb Curry are delish. The people are so sweet and friendly as well.

I had lunch with my son. A person gets a rice bowl with a choice of two portions of a variety of choices served cafeteria style. I chose the yam dish and was more than pleased with it. The place is very casual and people were doing homework and things like that, so if relaxed is your style this is... More

Crave for some spice ? Or authentic Tibetian or Indian food in Anchorage ? Then this is your place .. Tingmo ( Tibetian steamed buns ) are delicious.. So was chicken tikka , lamb curry and chicken vindaloo .. This is a BYOB place so remember to bring your own beer.

I have had a number of meals here in the last few months. The food is consistently flavorful and the portions are very adequate. The tastes are different than most foods I have eaten in Anchorage and that is a pleasant change. The variety is limited but I would thing everyone should be able to find something they will like....

The menu at the cafe location is a little limited (rice bowls in the main), but the food was hot and delicious. Service was speedy and the atmosphere pleasant, with smells of fresh baked goods and an indoor connection to Title Wave Books (it's a really plus to be able to wander over there after eating). The hours are great,... More

How many places can eat Tibetan food and not have to climb a mountain to get to the restaurant? In Anchorage two, our first trip to Anchorage was during the holidays and unfortunately Yak and Yeti was closed during our visit -- but not this time. The decor and ambiance is pleasant, service was within moments of arrival. The crew... More
