2 for 1 at Yak and Yeti Restaurant

The Yak and Yeti in the centre of York may have only been open for a few years, but it has already been showered with excellent reviews from a host of dedicated regulars. The Nepalese restaurant is just a few minutes’ walk from York’s historical and cultural highlights such as the Minster, but the offering of traditional Nepalese cuisine at the Yak and Yeti could not be more authentic, nor the welcome more warm.

Extremely popular with York’s community of Nepalese Ghurkhas serving in the British Army, as well as locals and visitors to York both old and young, the comfortable eatery offers a casual and welcoming atmosphere complete with colourful prayer flags, a cushioned seating area low on the floor for those who would prefer to lounge while they eat, and a well-stocked bar. The dedicated staff Yak and Yeti pride themselves on the high level or service they offer, as well as the fresh, unique offering of food they prepare in their pristine kitchen.

The menu’s starters and light bites offer diners a window into Nepalese dining culture, with tasty grilled lamb and pork ribs cooked in the nation’s traditional spices. Also not to me missed are the much loved street-snack, momos: fragrant steamed dumplings filled with lamb, pork or vegetables and served with dipping sauce, straight from the streets of Kathmandu.

Main courses are an incredible fusion of North Indian and Tibetan cuisine, and include a selection of aromatic curries, of both mild and hot spice levels, noodles slow cooked meats, vegetarian dishes and irresistible daal.

So for a dining experience that is truly memorable, take your taste buds on a trip to the foothills of Everest.

    We've never tried Nepalese cuisine and as it was our first night in York decided to give it a go. Absolutely lovely service and amazing food! We tried the momo, a popular Nepalese dish and the salt and pepper ribs as starters. We also had the yak and yeti chicken and the chicken chilli. Both courses were beautifully presented and filled with new interesting tastes and spices without being hot. Would definitely recommend to anyone who's interested in trying something new full of flavours! :-) will definitely be returning on our next visit. "
