Decorated in a charming Nepalese style, Yak & Yeti in Edinburgh’s Newington is an exciting alternative to a traditional Indian restaurant. If you want to try something a bit different, start with some momos – steamed dumplings filled with chicken and served with a Nepalese chutney, but you’ll also find all of the old favourites on the menu, from bhajis to seekh kebab and chicken tikka. If you're seeking out something with a spicy kick the lasuni kukhura is a must, a fiery blend of garlic, Nepalese-style chicken, onions and mixed capsicum.
Other delicious options include the lamb shank seasoned with Nepalese spices and served with potato wedges and rice, and the machha ko jhol, a tasty fish curry. No matter if you are looking for your fail safe favourite, or want to try something a bit different from the standard Indian cuisine, book a table at Yak & Yeti on Newington Road in Newington for a memorable meal out in Edinburgh.
Very good food and service. Good choice of different starters and mains. Lovely flavours. High quality food at a reasonable price. What more could a person want?
I chose this restaurant based on reviews for a team night out and all I can say is that my team can't wait to go back again. Excellent service and superb food.
Lovely food - we all got something different and so could try lots of things. I had, and would recommend, the saag paneer, it was delicious.
