Food is usually excellent, however...
Ordered a takeaway, including momo.
When I got it home, opened the sauce (vital, and usually delicious, accompaniment to the momo dumplings) pot to discover spots of white mould.
I phoned to complain about it, the waiter who answered was completely unhelpful, and clearly didn't care, nor was surprised, that his kitchen was turning out potentially harmful 'food'.
He offered no solution, and when I asked to speak to someone else or the manager, told me he was out on a delivery.
I tried phoning again later, and the following day, but got no answer.
I don't like to leave reviews like this, and am a supporter of local small business, but feel it necessary given the absence of response our concern.

We were staying in Oxford for the weekend and decided to try take out from Yeti for dinner one night. Extensive menu and friendly staff. The three of us ordered 4 different items and shared them all....DELISH! And plenty of food. Highly recommend!

We have been to the Yeti several times and it always delivers great food. Very authentic and varied, we love it.
Service can be a little slow but everything is cooked from scratch so it is totally understandable.
Owners are helpful, informative and charming.
A little gem of a place.

Don't be deceived by the basic exterior, this is a 'top notch' curry house. There is an array of dishes, both for those who want to be a bit adventurous and for those like to stick to their favourites.
I highly recommend the momos (we have tried all 3 different ones now), and all of the waiters will recommend their favourite main dishes. The chicken with pear is my favourite so far, great flavour with some heat.
You don't just come hear for the food though, the waiters are all really friendly, and the owner is the perfect hostess. If she is working out the front, she will come and have a chat, find out the sort of people you are and recommend the perfect dishes for you to try, and when she works in the kitchen, she will come out of the kitchen to check how your food was.
This is our new favourite curry house. It's 10 miles from where we live, but is well worth the travel! We will definitely be returning....again, and again!!!

I was expecting food that was different from Indian and it is, but not distinctly so. However it is a deservedly popular restaurant because the dishes are all tasty, and the service is relaxed, friendly and efficient. One of the best subcontinental places to eat in Oxford without a doubt.
