    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out ADRs for our November trip, and one request has been to eat at one Chinese restaurant. From reading reviews, I can't decide on Yak and Yeti or Nine Dragons. This will be a lunch (most likely), and we will fit it during our AK day or one of our Epcot days. Oh- and I have seen some comparison of Nine Dragons to PF Changs, which we really like.

    From anyone who has been to both or has strong feelings about either, which would you choose?

    Thanks for the help!

    We prefer Yak & Yeti, no question. We have had very bad experiences at Nine Dragons. Yak and Yeti has great food (their salmon dish and chicken lomein are delicious!), the decor is nice, and the service was great. :goodvibes

    I think they're both pretty similar to PF Changs, but personally I like Yak and Yeti better. Plus if you're on the DDP, and will be getting dessert, I'd go to Yak and Yeti for that reason alone.

    I would go with Yak and Yeti. I have eaten at both and LOVED Nine Dragons the first time I went (just after the refurb) and then went again this past Januaray. It was just okay. I actually find Yak and Yeti to be more PF Changs like with more interesting menu items. Check out the menus...that will help too...

    Another Yak & Yeti vote here!

    If you want to try Nine Dragons, eat at the Quick Service next to it: same kitchen, same cooks, same food - just smaller portions and much cheaper.

    I would also definitely choose Yak & Yeti! It's one of only 2 restaurants that we've never skipped on a trip. It's a lot more "unusual" than Nine Dragons, in both atmosphere and menu. Don't get me wrong, the food isn't "weird," it's just more special than Nine Dragons. Nine Dragons is more like regular Chinese food that I can get at home, in my opinion anyway. The cream cheese wonton dessert at Y&Y is one of my favorite in all of Disney. :thumbsup2

    Thanks everyone! We are on the DXDDP so it definitely sounds like we should take advantage of Yak and Yeti's dessert! I've looked at the menus for both but these opinions have really helped me decide!

    Great choice Yak and Yeti was one of the highlights of our November trip and excited to go there again next month.

    We love Yak & Yeti! The food is so good! We had lunch there in September and we are returning for lunch again this September!

    The Egg rolls and Pot Sticker Appetizers were really good. For our Entree we had Lo Mein and Honey Chicken both were good. The Sorbet trio for Dessert is Delicious!

    It is one of our Fav's in all of WDW!:thumbsup2

    We tried Nine Dragons for the first time a couple of weeks ago and loved it. But for sure there is no dessert to speak of! We had excellent food, service and we got a table right at the window which was awesome. But I think next time we'll try Yak and Yeti because dessert is part of the fun of the DDP for us!

    Another vote for Yak & Yeti. We have eaten at both and prefer Yak & Yeti. The cream cheese wontons are one of the best deserts at Disney.

    Yak & Yeti is not owned by Disney and is over-priced Panda Express

    I like them both.

    Don't stress too much, because you can't go wrong either way.

    I have been to both and like both...if I could I would move Y&Y to another park because we never get to AK lol

    I would pick whatever fits best with your plans. Food and drink is great at both
