We ate there in October and loved it. I had the steak and shrimp and my husband had the salmon. They were both great. We of course had the cream cheese won tons for dessert, sooooooooooooo good. We also had the mango pie, very good too. The atmosphere was also so much fun. We will be going back for sure

Yak&Yeti is one of my family's favourites. I always get the steak and shrimp. I always want to try other things, but I love it so much I can't break away from it! I also really love the egg rolls and pot stickers. The wok fried green beans are among my kids favourites. The wonton dessert is YUM! I can't remember what the rest of my family has ordered, but there has never been any complaints!

I really enjoyed the ribs. The won ton dessert was great also. I think
you will enjoy it there. We arrived early for our adr and were seated early.
The server was great.

we walked out without ever being served dessert and asked to pay through a different server . I had to wait outside with the kids as DH tried to pay. it was horrible (an not crowded in there either).

I did appreciate that the manager actually came running outside, apologized profusely. he gave the children a frozen lemonade and walked us to a nearby gift shop where he let them select anything they wanted as a gift.

so, while I do feel the manager made up for the experience, it doesn't necessarily have us wanting to go back there.
We had a very poor experience eating there last time. It's really too bad they let their service get so poor like that. At least you had a manager that acknowledged you.

I love Yak and Yeti! AK is so big that I absolutely need a sit down lunch and I think the food is delicious. I particularly like the fried green beans, ahi tuna salad, and mango pie. We've always had good service, including on our most recent slip. I hope the recent slips were just flukes!

Yuck! Nothing!

We went there thinking we could get something similar to Asian food we have here, my daughter's favourite food -- which is apparently authentic style. None of us liked our food.

And Y&Y take out was even worse.

I was always a little bit hesitant, but I went in November and actually really liked it! The restaurant is all themed, and all the artifacts are actually from where they say! Definitely take a look around after your meal and take some pictures!

The food is all good, I had a chicken dish and it was delicious, and we can't forget about the deep fried won tons!! Yum!!

Ahi tuna, Kobe beef burger and fried wontons were AMAZING! I hate getting a burger on vacation, but this one was delicious-no regrets here! We also booked an early reservation and were seated in the window on the second floor. We were able to people watch and take advantage and a cool breeze. One of my favorites at Disney!

We really liked Y&Y--our appetizers were great (potstickers and wings), and our main dishes were quite good, too (steak & shrimp and lo mein). I was slightly disappointed by the wonton dessert (don't get me wrong--it was good, I think I was just expecting somthing more!).

We plan to go back in May, and enjoy several appetizers! Those were delish!

Beautiful Restaurant!! Always get the Skirt Steak and Tempura Shrimp, and the Won Ton Dessert! We try for a 2:30 ADR and ask for a window seat and watch the Jammin Jungle Parade. The Parade CM's always look up and wave! MAGIC!!!

Skirt Steak And Shrimp


Wonton Dessert


Mango Pie


Duck


Curry

Brilliant idea for a 2:30 seating! We love the steak and shrimp as well. This time I'm going for the ribs - they look gorgeous! The wonton dessert is a do-not-miss, and the sorbets are so light and refreshing on a hot August day. The ambiance is wonderful, the decor is delightful, we've never had server problems, and we think it's worth trying. Damn, now I'm hungry

After reading these responses, I wish we had done table service instead of the counter service. It was horrible. And all the birds hanging out overhead and walking among the tables.... It was noisy, the food was not very good and we surely won't be eating there again.

I had the Asian Chicken Mandarin salad and it had more chow mein noodles than anything else. And only four small mandarin orange slices. It should have been called Asian chow mein noodle chicken salad with a few orange slices. I swear it had more chow mein noodles than lettuce.
