Eltham Yeti Restaurant specialises in Indian and Nepalese cuisine that’s so authentic it’s named for a famous five-star hotel in Kathmandu. Having taken over a derelict pub in the heart of town, the owners have transformed the space and brought it back to life, with stylish, comfortable seating, cheerful colour scheme and a positive ambience. The additive-free menu features both Britain’s favourite Indian dishes and fascinating Nepalese specialties. And as so many Nepalese are vegetarian, the Eltham Yeti Restaurant menu offers terrific depth in its vegetarian choices. The chef and his team are rightly proud of subcontinental culinary heritage, so they make a point of serving fresh, authentic dishes served with enormous attention to detail – as well as Nepalese beer and very good quality house wine.

Having been before and enjoyed the dishes we and my friend and I ordered the same things as before. Mine was as enjoyable hers however was mainly onions. On complaining and much embarrassing discussion with 2 members of staff they refunded her half the amount of her dish as she had ' eaten half of it '. Surely better to refund it or maybe her side dish ?They also refused to give her the Hi Life discount they are signed up for saying it was not available on weekends even though that is not stated on their hi life page. They suggested she take it up with hi life. So disappointed in the way they dealt with our complaint- as this is the measure of good service - that we will not be going there again

Despite having a confirmation that our table was reserved, the staff weren't expecting us, meaning a 20 minute delay before we got seated. The food was good, but generally the service was slow, given the restaurant wasn't busy.

The food and drinks were really good and it’s a beautiful restaurant - the only thing that ruined it for us was a useless waiter who didn’t ask if we wanted popadums to start, which every other indian always ask, and in the midst of eating our starter meal, the waiter suddenly comes to the table and places down the main menu (for some reason Eltham Yeti has devided the menu into two; starters and main) so we had to stop eating and choose a main at the spot. Later we ordered some coffee which unfortunately was a bit cold, and that didn’t help the overrall impression. Such a shame - it looked as to be great.

This is a nicely refurbished restaurant with friendly and helpful staff and an excellent menu that caters for all tastes - unless you have a garlic allergy and like meat! However the staff were able to prepare me a venison dish which was perfectly cooked, tender and with an excellent sauce. My family enjoyed the other dishes, especially the aubergine ones and my Vegan daughter's choices. The portions are quite generous and side dishes can be shared easily by two people, especially if you order several, as we did,
It had a very relaxed atmosphere and with non intrusive low background music meant it was easy to talk.
With such a vast range of foods we will certainly be back to sample some of the other delights.
With a mid to upper price range, £15 -30 per head with drinks it is ideal for an evening out.

We visited the Yak and Yeti on the evening of 12th August. We had relations visiting from KL Malaysia who are very discerning when it comes to food from the East. They enjoyed their meal, as we did, and thought the food was really good. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. We will most certainly visit again.

The tables were a good distance apart. It was a friendly atmosphere. My wife and I had quite a romantic evening. We booked a table for two and was situated by the window so although my wife was able to people watch I didn't have to look at a wall.
Overall nice experience with not the run of the meal food

I visited this place on a Saturday night along with two friends and chosen because of the location which was convenient for us all. Our table was ready when we arrived and we were promptly handed a starter and drinks menu. Whilst we were in the middle of eating our starters we were then given the mains menu - this did not make any sense to us because we were still eating but were questioned by different servers whether we were ready to order. The food when it came out was nice however the service was a bit haphazard. There did not appear to be any communication between staff about who was taking our order and some of the waiting staff appeared flustered and confused. Overall it was an expensive meal for nice food but let down by service.

Enjoyable meal, the food was very tasty and varied. My partner and I both agreed that the new menus are a bit hard to read, we preferred the old one. Staff are friendly. Prosecco by the glass was very overpriced for an Indian restaurant.

It was my first time trying Nepalese food and the waiting staff were all too please to help us with finding some good traditional dishes. The food came quickly and was very tasty.

Its a shame that the restaurant doesn't have more punters given that they serve such nice food at good prices.

We will go again and I hope that they manage to get more customers as they deserve to.
