This restaurant is a great choice if you are spending more than just a few hours in the park and want a break from the heat and the crowds. When you first enter the Yak and Yeti, you will notice that it has a great atmosphere and if you enter on a particularly hot day, you will definitely notice the air conditioning!!! This restaurant consists of two levels, which means a lot of seating, but I would still recommend a reservation just to be on the safe side. The food here reminds me of the type of offerings you would get a P.F. Chang’s, so if you have picky eaters they still might like some dishes that this restaurant has to offer. For people that are looking for a more flavorful experience, I would recommend Flame Tree Barbecue.
This restaurant had a great theming and food. My DH and I both tried foods we had never had before. We were so surprised how great it was. The service was great and fast. On that hot day the indoor cooled restaurant was just what we needed! We did take pics of our food and I will upload them!
One of my favorite WDW restaurants, Yak and Yeti has an amazing atmosphere, a stellar menu, and great desserts. A nice and varied menu, there's sure to be something for everyone. Be sure to get a slice of Mango Pie!
My only complaint has more to do with the parks operating hours, and that's if you're looking to eat dinner here, plan on an early dinner as they close at 6 or earlier along with the park.
We had never dined at Yak & Yeti prior to last year and we were a little hesitant because of it's Asian inspired quisine (darn kids). Well this turned out to be the gem of our entire trip last year. We had a late in the day dinner reservation, just prior to park closing. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. We were lucky enough to be given the table located right at the front windows on the second floor. We loved the fact that we could watch everyone moving through the park. Our waitstaff was exceptional, and attended to our every need. We had a ball kidding around with the entire staff as they were doing things all around us, my sons really appreciated this, as did I. The decor is amazing, it transports you into that Himilayan frame of mind and feeling, with the authentic statuary and props. The food was excellent. The wife and I both had the Shaoxing Steak & Shrimp which was out of this world. My oldest son had the Baby Back Ribs which he loved, son #2 had the Sweet and Sour Chicken (he says he hates Chinese food but ate all of it) and our youngest had to eat from the childrens menu which he was happy with. I know experiences here vary greatly but, Yak and Yeti were on their A game when we were there!
Yak and Yeti is Disney's Animal Kingdom's second table service restaurant (opened November 14 2007), and is located in Asia.
