It was meant to be a business lunch on a weekday with a senior colleague visiting New Delhi on work. On finding a few favourite eateries either closed down or 'out of service' on maintenance at Hauz Khas village complex, we finally clambered up the second floor to land at Yeti at about 2.00 pm; we were lucky to get a table for two immediately and noted large groups of young & old diners enjoying their food all around.
This was my second visit to Yeti, the first being around one and half years ago. As good food transcends the barrier of time, I thought I would pen one more review for the restaurant. This time for a quick & easy experience, we chose two Thakali (Nepali thali set - Rs.575/- each) with chicken and a plate of Macha tareko (deep fried fish in mustard oil – Rs.275/-) to be shared by two of us. We earnestly hoped that standard thalis (much like its South Indian cousins) would be served in no time to enable us head to office early. The wait staff took the order quickly and then simply vanished. After severe gesticulations we could catch the attention of the waiters and on several reminders the fried fish appeared at our table after more than 30 minutes! The fried fish was made of cheap Indian Basa variety; I was not impressed at all as I find Basa too oily a fish to appeal to my palate. The thali, served in a heavy brass plate with an accompaniment of brass bowls, did help in restoring our moods. The preparations of lentil, vegetables (spinach) and chicken curry had a simplistic 'home cooked' feel and taste in them. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and returned as happy souls.
