There's a feeling of stepping into an exotic yet rustic place as you enter the Yeti, which seems perfectly sited within the Grist Mill, a historical building on the edge of Glen Ellen. The restaurant is decorated in the saffron and red Himalayan colors, with Buddhist thangas hanging on the walls, The dining area overlooks an outside dining deck, which overlooks Sonoma Creek. High ceilings and dark woods reminded me of tea lodges in the Himalaya.
The food: None of the dishes are cooked with afsaetida (an Indian herb that often has wheat as its binding agent), which has to be avoided by those with gluten issues. My chicken tikka masala was yummy (not the best but definitely above average), served with basmati rice and a small salad. My husband had a flavorful lamb curry, basmati rice, masala khulcha (naan stuffed with potatoes and peas), and mango chutney. Naans, raita, and chutneys are extra and priced ala carte (at least at lunch time). For seniors, they offer a 15% off coupon, which is usually in the bi-monthly free Kenwood Press, which you can pick up at the Glen Ellen Market..
