There’s no limit to the dining options at Walt Disney World in Orlando, but some are better to pass over in exchange for better choices, right? When my mom and I took our trip last year, we got to eat at all sorts of places, and today I wanted to share with you Why You Should Eat at Yak & Yeti at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s definitely a don’t-miss restaurant, and your taste buds won’t be disappointed!

We were able to dine at the Yak & Yeti restaurant during lunch for our day at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, and by mid-day we sure were hungry! Joining us was our wonderful guide for the day, Chris, as well as the owner of Michael’s VIPs, Adam. They were great company, and it gave us a chance to see more of the dishes offered.

They do have a Yak & Yeti restaurant (that we went to), but there’s also a Yak & Yeti Cafe that serves basically the same food, I believe, it’s just more of an on-the-go meal than a nice sit-down, so make your choice accordingly. Yak & Yeti is a Nepalese-style restaurant, and it’s designed to look like a little village home transformed into a restaurant. Southeast Asian artifacts adorn every wall, so there’s no shortage of interesting things to look at or explore. We had a lovely seat right by a window on the 2nd (or was it 3rd?) floor, and I loved that the atmosphere was cozy and not too loud, but not so hushed you were afraid to talk.
While I absolutely loved the decor (the ginormous warrior suit was my favorite), I was concerned about it being pan-Asian cuisine – would everything be too spicy? Would there be things even picky eaters would enjoy? Once I got looking through the menu, though, I had no worries because they had a HUGE assortment of different type dishes, from pot stickers and egg rolls to salmon, ribs, soups and salads. The kids menu was also perfect, with a little something for every taste.
The staff was wonderful and very attentive, yet not rushed or too ‘in your face’. Everything was served fresh, drinks were kept filled, and while the meal didn’t take very long we also didn’t feel rushed at all. The pricing is also right on point for a decent lunch, especially considering it’s in a Walt Disney World park!
