Food lacked flavor and the service was dreary. Don't believe the hype, this place may have once been good but it has gone downhill. Better options nearby so go check them out, or risk being disappointed too.

I had visited this place a week ago and was left stunned and sickened by their awful customer service and offhand behaviour. Staff was impolite and unhelpful. I asked the guy for the wifi, he put incorrect password a few times and then told me something was wrong with my phone and left. when i asked for someone who could... More

The restaurant offers typical Nepali meals as well as meals from other traditions (Tibetan, Chinese, Indian). The food is good, but the service is a bit too slow. However, it is a good place in which to eat in the center of Thamel!

Restaurant was quite crowded for a Sunday night, filled with tourists. We sat down to order and it was fish curry with rice and chicken masala with butter and garlic naan. Portions... More

We had a lovely meal here, the waiter helped with some recommendations and the food came quickly (although the restaurant wasn't particularly busy). It was good honest local food at a reasonable price.

Before going to my trip to Nepal in December, I read about Yak Restaurant. Fortunately, my hotel was located inside Thamel which made it easy for me to find this restaurant. Because I was not really starving when I came, I wanted to have some soup and Nepal's famous momos. Made up my mind after checking out their menu and... More

I always love Tibetan Food, and when i feel like strager in the middle of Kathmandu I can go here and feel the Tibet atmosphere, with tibetan song played, and sometimes the owner speak in Tibetan and it makes me feels like i already going home.
