Yak and Yeti serves up pan Asian cuisine at the Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. You will find this restaurant in Asia at the back of Animal Kingdom near Kali River Rapids. Once again Disney has a fantastic back story (which you can read on the menus) for Yak and Yeti. To summarize, a wealthy merchant from Anandapur, Arjun, has fallen on hard times. As a result, he’s turned his regal home into a hotel and restaurant. Throughout Arjun’s extensive travels, he’s amassed an impressive art collection which he displays throughout the restaurant.

My husband went with the waiter’s recommendation when picking out this dish and he just loved it. Chicken and rice you just can’t go wrong, right?
Yak and Yeti Recommendation
The Animal Kingdom has limited sit-down dining options and Yak and Yeti is one of the better options. The spot serves your traditional Asian dishes that some of us have dubbed as our comfort foods. If you are a picky eater, the burger here is fantastic and a great backup option.
Our main complaint here was the portion sizes were so big we should have split a meal, or prepared to take it immediately back home instead of spending a few more hours in the park enjoying the rides.
If you are interested in booking a reservation for Yak and Yeti you can do so through My Disney Experience. We find reservations are moderately easy to make here you should think about booking this location in advanced.
