My outlaws had been here before and really enjoyed it so wanted to come back for father in laws birthday, my wife had been before and said the food was good with an excellent selection of gluten free things. I came along and was so...excited as I had only tried Nepalese food once and that was in Saudi when some Ghurkha's we were working with gave the chefs a night off and cooked for us, it was the best meal I have ever had and that was done by signallers, not professional chefs and cooked in a tent! I had the Chilli chips for starters which was really nice and then the Ghurkhali pork for mains which was full of flavour and not overpowering with heat. My daughter had the special Chow Mein which looked amazing and the freshness of the ingredient's shone through. In all the food was superb and I would definitely go again.More

If you haven't visited the Yak and Yeti you are missing some incredibly good food. The service is impeccable and the surroundings tranquil. With a vast amount of gluten free items on the menu it is perfect for a coeliac like myself. Try the sukuti...starter with beaten rice and lose yourself in the flavours. Home made lemonade makes a beautiful accompaniment to all of the main dishes. We visit York now from Staffordshire just to eat in this hidden gem.More

Visited here with tug family as it looked a little different and we had never tried Nepalese food. Accommodating and everyone loved their dishes. Had the salmon curry, lamb dish which was very tender and the prawns. Delicious in flavour and would certainly recommend.

There’s so many tasty choices on this menu. I opted for something different from my normal choices this time and was equally impressed. The steamed buffalo momos are fresh, clean-feeling bites for a starter and then I went for the beef stir fry which was...full of taste and accompanied by a very generous portion of rice. Available on deliverooney if you fancy it from the comfort of your own place. Enjoy!More

Have been numerous times and the food is excellent, never fails. Staff help full with menu if you need to ask questions. Don’t be put off by the entrance, the food more than makes up for it.

If you like Indian food, this restaurant is an excellent alternative. Wonderful food, atmosphere and service. Also very good value for money.

Never tried Nepalese food before so booked on spec. Not disappointed! Food is definitely different to Indian cuisine- more subtle, less spicy- but a real revelation! Staff were brilliant, helping us through an unfamiliar menu and answering dumb questions with patience and good humour. The...food? In a word: superb! Please check this place out. It’s friendly, unpretentious and the food is great!More

Food and atmosphere excellent. We couldn't get a table on our last trip to York so it was extra special this time. Service was very good too. Every item of food was delicious and we would definitely visit again. They didn't take card payments so...there was a bit of panic at the end as I barely carry cash these days so just beware.More

Great service and really interesting menu. Check out the Mo Mo s which are are truly delicious. We had a selection of chicken curry dishes and noodles - all of which I’d recommend.
