A haven for decent veggie food in the centre of Kyoto. The meat dishes are lovely too. We both had the set Nepali menu. Massive Nan, two small curry samplers, dumplings, rice and pudding for 1800 each. Bargain. Nice staff who are helpful with dietary...More

Opted for the Set Menu "A" so we didn't have to think what to order, whilst the other diner chose the "Ladies Menu" set course. Salad, cold pickles, dumplings, tandoori chicken & 2 curry dishes, with unlimited rice and Nan breads. Tandoori chicken was ok,...More

After a week of enjoying Japanese food we fancied something different so after perusing the reviews decided to head to the Yak and Yeti. We were delighted with our choice. We both had the 'set tandoori plate' with different curry options and enjoyed every mouthful!...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
