Yak and Yeti is the name of both a counterservice and a sit down restaurant in Animal Kingdom’s Asia section. Rivaling the restaurants in Epcot’s China and Japan pavilions, Yak and Yeti is considered to be the best Asian food on Disney property! Inspired by Nepal, the Yak and Yeti restaurant makes a nice addition to the Expedition Everest area of the park, located right near the famed mountain coaster. This restaurant does seem to book up quick for dinner so make your reservations early! With the location being at the base of Expedition Everest, Disney does its magic of transporting you from reality, and to Asia. The artifacts, menu selections, and atmosphere scream “Nepal”, and you won’t be disappointed if you choose to eat here.
Yak and Yeti is part of the Disney Dining Plan, and will cost you one table service credit per member of your party. Try to make your reservations as soon as you can around your 180 day mark. Many returning guests make it a priority to eat at Yak and Yeti, and it’s well worth it. Although this is a table service restaurant, there are NO characters present at either meal. Yak and Yeti is open for lunch and dinner hours. Lettuce cups, Ahi Tuna Salad, various lo mein choices, and several chicken dishes grace the menu here. You can find the full menu of Yak and Yeti HERE.
For just a small taste of Nepal, you can go to the walk up counter service that is adjacent to the main restaurant. Serving a small sampling of the food to be found in the main restaurant there is seating outside and the Café also participates in the Disney Dining Plan. Both Yak and Yeti locations are open for lunch and dinner.
Overall, we give Yak and Yeti an “A”.
