Tucked away over in Edinburgh’s Newington area, diners can be prepared to take off on a full on Himalayan adventure when they visit Yak & Yeti. Alongside the usual pakora and Indian curry offerings, you’ll find exciting dishes from Nepal and the Himalayan region, all served up in a relaxed atmosphere. Situated on Newington Road, Yak & Yeti attracts crowds from all over the city. Score a table at this cosy restaurant by booking in advance.
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.
great food as always, presentation is really visual too, artistic creations with the sauces. All in all a good experience, and well worth a visit.
We loved Yak & Yeti. First visit, definitely not our last. The food was beautiful and the service was outstanding. We asked our lovely waiter to pick our dishes and they were superb. Delighted with Yak & Yeti and definitely going back!

Delicious food, best Nepalese restaurant I have visited (three in total), and much better than any similar Indian style restaurants I've been to as well! Waiter was very friendly and helpful at recommending meals, and had a nice chat with him after the meal too. Highly recommend this restaurant!!
The food was absolutely delicious, all four of us had different dishes and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. Apologies for not remembering what they're called, but guarantee that dishes will be cooked to the upmost quality. Will definitely be making our way back again!
