Malaysian Seafood Curry with a side of naan bread at Yak and Yeti Animal Kingdom

The O'Hallorans

The OHallorans

We’re made up of Lyndsey, John and Erin, who all love a new adventure. We try to get away as much as possible, especially during school holidays and variety is a must for us. That means staying anywhere from a luxury hotel to a hostel and it’s not often we go to the same place twice. 

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to a wide range of restaurants, with a great variety of cuisines on offer. The Yak and Yeti restaurant offers exciting pan-Asian cuisine in a beautiful Nepalese-style restaurant.

Where is Yak & Yeti?

You’ll find Yak & Yeti located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, within the Asia area. It’s around the corner from Feathered Friends in Flight and at the base of Expedition Everest.

Making reservations

As Yak and Yeti is part of Walt Disney World you can book a table via the My Disney Experience App. Bookings open at different times, depending on whether you are staying on-site at Disney, or off-site. Being a popular location, this restaurant can get booked up quickly so I do advise booking in advance. Tables may be available on the day, but are not guaranteed.

Landry’s Select Club

Before our holiday to Orlando we signed up for the Landry’s Select Club. As Yak and Yeti is a Landry’s restaurant, once you are a member you have access to priority seating, meaning you don’t have to book in advance. You will be sent a card in the post or you can use the app on your phone to show your membership. Joining the Landry’s Select Club costs $25 however, you get that back on your membership to spend towards a meal. You need to be able to show your membership at the location to receive the discount. 

This is a great way to get seated at some restaurants which are usually quite busy or would have a long wait if you turn up without a booking

Pan-Asian dining delights

Yak & Yeti has a great menu with a really diverse range of options. There’s really something for everyone here, whether you like a plainer option or are a bit more adventurous. There are also plenty of vegetarian options.

A feast for grown-ups

Yak and Yeti was one of the restaurants John and I had been really looking forward to trying. We knew they we’d end up eating a fair amount in quick service restaurants, so this was going to be one of our ‘different’ meals.

After a short wait to be seated (we used our Landry’s Card), our server was super helpful and explained lots of options on the menu. There is usually a seasonal specials menu as well as the main menu, which is a nice addition.

It took us a little while to decide, because there is a lot to choose from. I went for something I knew I would like with the Sweet and Sour Chicken, while John went for a special of Malaysian Seafood Curry with a side of naan bread.

I’m quite a fussy eater and I was really happy with how many things I could have ordered from the menu. I had asked for plain rice with my Sweet and Sour Chicken instead of jasmine rice, which was no trouble at all. My Sweet and Sour Chicken was way better than anything I’ve had at home and there wasn’t anything left at the end!

John thoroughly enjoyed his Malaysian Seafood Curry. He likes something with a lot more flavour and heat than I do and he said this was absolutely perfect. The bread was a nice addition so he could mop up those last bits on his plate!

You can’t have a meal like this at a table service restaurant without having some drinks to go with your food. Yak and Yeti offers regular drinks such as Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite etc. where some have free refills. This is great if you’re getting out of the heat for a bit!

Yak and Yeti also offer some speciality drinks. There’s a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available, such as:

  • Yak Attack (Mango Daiquiri, Don Q Cristal Rum and Wild Berry Flavours)
  • Opici Family Red Sangria (Opici Family Red Sangria Blended with Natural Citrus and Fruit Juices)
  • South Seas Traveler (Created by the Yak and Yeti Bartenders…Myer’s Original Dark Rum and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Monin Lychee Syrup, and citrus juices)
  • Shanghai Lemonade (Lemonade with Desert Pear, Passion Fruit, South Seas Blend, Lychee, or Lemon Grass Flavours)
  • Everest Refresher (Sparkling Water with Desert Pear, Passion Fruit, South Seas Blend, Lychee, or Lemon Grass Flavours)

If you’re into collectibles, you can also pick up the Yak & Yeti Souvenir Cup while you’re dining!

Children’s meals

Something I loved about Yak and Yeti was how different the children’s menu was. While you can get the Disney staples of a cheeseburger or chicken tenders, the other options are a refreshing change.

Children’s meals include a choice of 2 sides, which include things like rice, fries, vegetables and fruit.

  • Cheeseburger 
  • Stir-fry Noodles 
  • Chicken Fried Rice 
  • Mini Corn Dogs 
  • Grilled Chicken Breast 
  • Mac & Cheese 
  • Teriyaki Chicken Breast 
  • Chicken Tenders 

Erin opted for stir-fry noodles with fries and fruit as her sides. This was a really good option for her as it meant she could have something a bit different but with something familiar like fries.

Usually, we wouldn’t go for a dessert after a meal this big but I couldn’t help myself. There’s only a small menu but this did make it easier to choose.

  • Fried Wontons  
  • New York Cheesecake 
  • Pineapple Upside-down Cake 
  • Chocolate Pudding Cake 
  • Mango Pie 
  • Chocolate pudding (children’s)
  • Ice-cream sandwich (children’s)

I had never had a Pineapple Upside-down Cake before, and I definitely did not regret my choice. It was everything I wanted it to be. It was sweet, warm and absolutely delicious. I could have eaten another one. John went for a classic with the New York Cheesecake, which was every bit as good as it looks. The mango and strawberry coulis on top was a really refreshing addition.

Would we go back?

I have to say, this was one of the best meals we had while we were in Orlando, out of everywhere we went to. Not only did we get great food but the service was also amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and our server made sure we all had drinks all of the time and that Erin was happy throughout. We all want to go back on our next trip to Walt Disney World.

We spent around £85, which included a tip and a discount from our Landry’s Select Card. I thought this was good value, considering how good both the food and service was.
