Yak and Yeti is two, two, two restaurants in one. (Some of you are old enough to remember that.) Yep, this restaurant is both an indoor, sit down, full-service, eat with silverware restaurant, and a order out, sit outside in the hot sun, eat with plastic, out of boxes, fast-food, quick-service restaurant. Two, two, two restaurants in one.

One website call this Pan-Asian dining? What’s up with that? Pigment, what is Pan-Asian dining? . . . Pigment???? Piiiiiigggggggmmment??? Who knows where that little pig went. Dad doesn’t really know what that means. I would call the food that’s served here Chinese food.

What to Expect

The sit-down side of Yak & Yeti is wonderfully themed with artwork from the area. Large statues, lighting, and wall decorations are everywhere. The inside restaurant is open from 11:00 until the park closes. For those looking for a quick meal, the take out, or counter-service side of Yak and Yeti is available. You order boxed Chinese food and eat it where ever you can find to sit. There are some tables on the right side of the restaurant (as you face the ordering stands).


Yak & Yeti Menu

Yak & Yeti is located in the Asia area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. If you can find Expedition Everest, you can find this restaurant–just don’t ride it right after eating!

Breakfast is served at the quick-service side of Yak & Yeti. These items don’t stick to the pan-Asian theme (What is pan-Asain again, Pigment?) but will provide some energy as you trek around Asia.Check out the breakfast menu!


The lunch menu for Yak & Yeti can be found here, but it appears quite similar to the dinner menu. For the quick service restaurant there is a combined lunch and dinner menu and you can view it here.

Advanced Dining Reservations

Like pretty much any restaurant at Walt Disney World, you will want to make an ADR to make sure you get a table! If you can’t get an ADR or you prefer to be more spontaneous on your trip, consider the Landry’s Select Club. There are many perks to this club, such as earning points and rewards, but one is priority seating. Show your card and they’ll do their best to seat you without an ADR. Yes. Talk about Simple, Fun, and Magic. That’s VIP treatment! Find out information about Landry’s Select Club by clicking here.

The Disney Dining Plan

The Yak & Yeti table service restaurant requires one table service credit. The quick service option requires one, you guessed it, quick service credit! Love Disney dining? So do we! Check out WDW Magazine for a different restaurant review every month!

There are Yak and Yeti Restaurants all over the world. There’s one in Anchorage, two in Colorado, and a hotel in Katmandu Nepal (don’t you just love that name, Kat-man-du).

Dad’s Bottom Line

While the table service restaurant is the shining star here (Dad really, really liked it!) the quick service location is a pleasant alternative to burgers and fries.

Pigment: Dad!!! Dad!!! Oh, there you are, Pigment. Pigment: Pan-Asian means “relating to all of Asia” or at least that’s what the dictionary says. Good to know!
