Yak Restaurant information
We always find ourselves returning to this unpretentious and reliable local place at the southern end of Thamel. The booths give it a ‘Tibetan diner’ vibe and the clientele is a mix of trekkers, Sherpa guides and local Tibetans who come to shoot the breeze over a tube of tongba (hot millet beer).
The menu includes Tibetan dishes, with good kothey (fried momos), and some Indian dishes, all at unbeatable prices. It feels just like a trekking lodge, down to that familiar electronic sound of a chicken being strangled every time a dish leaves the kitchen.
