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.

Important Information

Please Note: The Yak and Yeti is closed on Sundays. This tastecard offer applies to the restaurant’s dine-in, a la carte food menu only.

    Initial service was a bit slow. We were waiting for 20 minutes before we could get any attention to order drinks while we were looking at the menu. Drinks order was eventually taken with the food order. However the food was very good. Dishes were very flavoursome, nice portions, and the lamb dishes were lovely and tender. Recommended despite the service hiccup "

    Fantastic food. Very traditional Nepalese and a hidden gem in York.

    The momo starters were an understated yet fantastic warm up. Packed with flavour I would recommend the chilli versions, which had the punch of... well maybe not a Muhammad Ali... but an Amir Khan at least.

    For the mains, the salmon curry was tugging on my heart strings... but deciding to branch out from fish, my usual favourite south Asian meat of choice, I selected a slow cooked lamb.

    Orgasmic is the only adjective suitable to describe the flavours and skill used to cook my dish. The lamb, slow cooked to perfection was seasoned perfectly and had the perfect melt in your mouth butter texture. Combined with the base of the beautifully balanced chilli and vegetable curry, this was a dish I would highly recommend.

    Sadly, due to driving commitments I couldn’t sample a beer to accompany my food.

    Till next time Yak and Yeti! "

    Cannot rave enough about this place - it’s absolutely wonderful! The food is absolutely incredible, and the service couldn’t have been better - I forgot to tell the waitress that I was allergic to tomatoes and accidentally ordered a dish with tomatoes in it. When she brought the dish and I realised my mistake, she was really kind and advised me on what I could eat instead, brought the dish to me amazingly quickly (as my partner was already eating) and didn’t even charge me for the previous dish I’d ordered! The atmosphere is lovely too, and with the taste card it’s phenomenal value. Cannot recommend it more! "

The tastes were amazing; black dhal may not look appetising but believe me, I could have eaten a ton of that just with the steamed basmati, the ginger in it was gorgeous!
    Very nice bottled beer too & friendly staff. Highly recommended. "

    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. "
