About The Yak and Yeti Gurkha Restaurant

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!

Great food & service. The salmon curry is to die for and all the food packs amazing flavour. Can’t wait to return - an absolute gem in York

We ordered a selection of starters and sides to share, which worked very well. The food was delicious, and the wait staff were very friendly.

We are regular visitors to York and have tried a lot of the restaurants in the city, we thought we would give the Yak and Yeti a try having never tried Nepalese food before. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the service was friendly and efficient We would definitely return for a second visit when visiting York again.

Excellent food with very attentive staff. It is a lovely family run restaurant that is only let down by its poor desert offerings. I would return regardless.

Amazing food! The combination of flavours in this Nepalese restaraunt were a unique sesnsation for the taste buds. Great setting with pictures of the mountians decorating the walls. There is even the chance to sit at traditinal tables on the floor (which we will be requesting on our return visit!) The team there were brilliant and even after a very busy night took the time to thank us for choosing to spend my partners birthday there and even treated him to a birthday cake! That really topped off a brilliant experience. We will be returning with friends and family in the up and coming months! I highly recommend you give ut a try!

Very enjoyable meal at The Yak and Yeti Gurkha Restaurant. Friendly staff and quick service. Nepalese Pork Ribs and Lamb Momo to start were fantastic. The Annapurna Chicken was a little on the spicy side but tasty nonetheless, and I particularly enjoyed the salmon curry (Malekhuko Macha). I'd definitely come back!

Hands down, this is the best Nepalese I’ve ever had, and definitely one of the - if not THE, best places to eat in York. We’ve been here several times now, and every time the food is exceptional and the service is fantastic. We love the Streamed Pork Momo, the Malekhuko Macha, the Annapurna Chicken and the Maasai Dahl in particular. With cheerful and warm decor, this place packs out, so be sure to book in advance. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Ambiance - small, a bit crowded, noisier than I would like - conversation was difficult without shouting. Staff - friendly, welcoming and extremely efficient. Food - absolutely delicious and I appreciated that we asked how spicy we would like it to be. General - although the place was so busy they turning people away, we were not rushed or made to feel uncomfortable. Value for money - yes - definitely. Would visit again.

Booked this restaurant as we were staying in York for the weekend. Glad we did, as when we got there it was completely full. Food was delicious, we had the set meals, one meat and one vegetarian. It came out on the plate with all the dishes in small bowls and a dome of rice, a popadom and chutney. All really tasty. We will definitely return when we are in York next.

A real hidden gem. We enjoyed a wonderful birthday night meal here with beautiful food and attentive staff. Only a small venue however clever table placement resulted in us having an intimate meal for two even though the restaurant was full. The food is a wonderful fusion of Indian flavours, Chinese textures and of course the unique Nepalese dishes. We will definitely return and have been recommending it to friends. Thank you.
