Dining Recon: Yak & Yeti Restaurant at Animal Kingdom

By Evan Chaisson

Hi, all!  I’m glad to be back!  As I think about our last trip to Walt Disney World, I find myself reflecting on our dinner at Animal Kingdom’s Yak & Yeti Restaurant.

Unfortunately, though, the only thing that pops into my head and makes my stomach growl is desert.  Everyone, it was “to die for”!  That being said, let me get into the whole meal.

Yak & Yeti is located in Asia very near to Kali River Rapids.  The restaurant is themed nicely with statues and Asian-inspired artifacts everywhere.

There is a small bar with about 8 to 10 seats to the right as you walk into the restaurant.

As an appetizer, my wife and I got their Pork Pot Stickers.  They were pretty basic and very comparable to the ones you can get at any Asian-inspired restaurant.

For main courses, I had a shrimp and lobster garlic noodle dish.  My wife got their Crispy Honey Chicken.

Honestly, neither dish was overwhelmingly good.  The shrimp and lobster was priced at $35.00.  The honey chicken, which I personally thought was more enjoyable, was a much better value at $18.99.

As I hinted above, the best thing of our entire meal was the desert!  Fried Wontons.

Skewers of fresh pineapple and cream cheese wontons, vanilla ice cream, and honey-vanilla drizzle.  Wow!  I’m telling you, they need a place in Disney where they just sell these! They were that good!

When it comes to the Yeti, our recommendation, fans, is that you order a few appetizers … and, then, go straight to the wontons!  You won’t be disappointed.  I promise!
