Slightly overshadowed by the cuisine of its bigger neighbours India and China, Nepalese cuisine is hard to come by in the North of England, but down on Goodramgate in York City Centre it has its time to shine. The Yak and Yeti Gurkha Restaurant is decorated in a traditional Nepalese style, and it has close links to the Gurkha Signal Squadron based at York’s Imphal Barracks. We recommend trying some momo (spiced steamed dumplings originating from the Himalayas filled with your choice of vegetable, pork or beef and served with a tomato chutney), before moving on to the Everest lamb (slow-cooked lamb with onions, ginger, garlic, fresh Nepali masala, chilli and coriander). To guarantee a table at The Yak and Yeti Gurkha Restaurant, make a reservation in advance!
First time and it definitely will not be our last. Superb food and service. Highly recommend this restaurant and would definitely book beforehand. Thank you.
I have been here several times and as always it was really tasty and food came quickly. Spicy but not too spicy (and they will make it a bit less spicy if you ask nicely). Would recommend.
Another great meal. We always visit when we’re in York.
