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!

Amazing food! Lovely waiting staff and atmosphere. Recommend the Yak and Yeti beef, banana fritters (not too sweet) and chilli chips. We were made to feel very welcome.
Excellent meal, our second visit. Took friends, one from Bhutan who thought the food was very authentic. The momos are fantastic, and I had the new chilli momo (with lamb) and it was amazing. Can't recommend highly enough.
Absolutely incredible I have eaten everywhere around the world and found this food to be my favourite. Lovely little restaurant and the waiter and waitresses where good also. Price reasonable but don't let the sizes of the dishs put you off very filling!! Just right in my opinion and I can eat a lot!!
Great little place, lots of atmosphere, staff very helpful. I had no idea about the type of food but found it very tasty. Would certainly go again
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!
One could easily pass by this restaurant as it is up above another restaurant in Goodramgate. We are glad that we found it. The staff were very pleasant. The atmosphere was calm and the food good. This was the first time that we had encountered Nepalese food and we liked the more subtle flavours. I would happily return.
We were a group of 9. The staff welcomed us and were very patient and helpful as we tried to choose our dishes. The food was excellent, tasty but not too spicy for anyone. Service efficient and friendly. Drinks reasonably priced so we stayed a while. Will return again!
The food and service was very good. The waiter helped us understand the dishes. The drinks are limited but adequate. One thing to note, there is only one toilet which could be a problem at busy times. Well worth a visit we will return and recommend to others. The Everest lamb is amazing.
Lovely atmosphere, very unique. The we vice is quick and the staff are very friendly, The food I had there was some of the best and most unique I personally have ever tried, I will definitely be going back whenever I can :)
Friendly staff and very good food. Don't be put off by the small frontage on the street or stiff climb up the stairs. Restaurant is open and airy, you can choose to sit at traditional low tables if you want. Highly recommended.
Felt very welcome and the food was fantastic. Good selection of drinks and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. Very easy to understand descriptions of the dishes on the menu if you are not familiar with Nepalese food. We shall definitely return!
Fantastic food, incredible flavours. Booked up so well worth booking in advance. The staff are helpful, we arrived with one person extra and they made every effort to fit us in and feel welcome even though they were completely full.
Super tasty food and great service. We visited Nepal last year and the momos were just as good as those we had in Kathmandu. Good variety on menu - will definitely return to try more.
We have been to this restaurant often. The food is always delicious and is just like you would find in Nepal. It is excellent value for money and we will return there often.
Delicious fresh & tasty food served by lovely staff. The best Momos [spicy dumplings] we'd ever tasted. The authentic decor makes for a relaxing meal in tranquil surroungings. a great place to visit.
Very friendly staff and fabulous food - very tasty! We were dining with someone with various dietary restrictions and the menu was very clear about allergens etc. Our first visit but I think we'll be back again very soon.
Brilliant restaurant, brilliant service and brilliant food! Everyone should try this experience! A genuine article of a food experience with a manager who is a true gent. Keep up the good work.
The location of the restaurant is really convenient and in centre of York. The Food and service were fantastic especially the amazing Momo's, we ordered more of them they were that good.
Fantastic food and helpful, friendly service. It's worth noting drinks are somewhat limited in terms of spirits; plenty of choice with wine however and husband enjoyed the Burka beer 🍻. Reasonably priced.
