As you enter this place, an air of serenity is hard to miss. A small cosy outfit with charming decor is very welcoming and peaceful in an otherwise buzzing location. Brick walls, Mandalas, Tibetan flags, prayer wheels and wooden furniture, add to the charm. There is seating area next to the window offering enough privacy. The much-talked food of Yeti is a delightful mix of traditional dishes from Nepal, Bhutan, Meghalaya and Tibet. It is a good idea to order 'Yeti Veg or Non-Veg Platter' so that you get to taste their multiple unique snacks and warn them about your spice level. I simply loved 'Wai Wai Sadeko' – crispy wai noodles tossed with onions, tomato, green chillies and a dash of lemon, reminded me of 'Mumbai Bhel'. For fish lovers, 'Macha Tareko' is not to be missed – A very famous Nepali snack wherein fish is marinated with spices and then batter fried in mustard oil. The stars of the menu are Chef’s specials like 'Chicken Fried Dry Thukpa', 'Kokra Ko Ledo' – traditional 'Nepalese chicken curry, 'Doh Nai' – pork cooked in black sesame gravy which comes from the kitchens of Khasi Jaintia of Meghalaya. 'Chataamari' – thin rice crepes seasoned with herbs and topped with egg, a Newari style preparation, is much in demand here. The menu is really extensive with a fair balance of veg and non-veg dishes and the portions are generous. The service is very pleasing and unobtrusive.
India is a fascinating country gastronomy wise. It’s very much influenced by its neighboring countries, drawing from their culture and adapting it into their everyday lives. Tibetan cuisine for instance, has played a huge factor on Indian dining scene. Many Tibetan classics found a home on India’s streets and from there our interest in the cuisine grew. More and more gourmets are becoming adventurous with their choices hence, ‘Yeti – The Himalayan Kitchen’. This quaint cheerful food joint decided to skip your usual cuisine suspects and concentrate fully on Tibetan cuisine. It receives a mix of clientele in its first floor location in Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi. A heavy domination of western diners and some adventurous gourmets sums up Yeti’s clientele. The place is kid-friendly, in case you are wondering.
The name Yeti instantly hints on its specialty. Their menu is just not limited to Tibetan cuisine but includes Nepalese and Bhutanese cuisines as well. Food is homely and authentic. Go if you would like to take a break from all those spicy curries and pastas. Plenty of beef and pork dishes features on the menu. Yeti does not serve alcohol so wash down your meal with their flavorful mocktails. Try, Yeti’s lemon or Yeti’s special. Feeling adventurous? Go for their Tibetan yak butter tea. Pair the tea with some appetizers like, buff momo, spinach & egg drop soup, gyuma, butter fried beans, sekuwa, bara, la phing, piro aloo and Yeti special thukpa.

The sugar buffs can rejoice in Yeti’s selection of desserts. Other than fresh fruit platter and ice cream they serve traditional Tibetan desserts like, yomari and baktsa marku. Yeti – The Himalayan Kitchen is done in a way to exude comfort and glimpse of Tibetan culture. A cozy exposed brick walled room flanked by windows from one side resembles somebody’s dining room in Tibet. To give the mountain cottage feel, Yeti mounts Tibetan curios on coarse white walls. Prayer flags, Tibetan tapestry, masks, prayer wheels and utensils lifts up the space instantly. Yeti is casual and simply designed. Sit next to the windows if you want to soak up all that sun. The restaurant is reasonably priced, an added bonus.
