Great with Tibetan and Nepalese Food, not so with North Eastern

Yeti the Himalayan Kitchen serves Nepali, Tibetan and Bhutanese cuisine along with some dishes from the North Eastern states. After a successful operation in south Delhi and Connaught place, it has finally come to our Gurgaon’s shores and that is reason enough for Shivendu and I to check it out the food here. The restaurant has a pleasant, Tibet inspired interiors and charming service.

The meal starts with a complementary Nepalese potato dish, which easily is one of the highlights of the meal. Never knew our humble potato could taste so good! 


Next in is a loaded Tibetan Platter (Rs 595), with Gyuma (Tibetan mutton sausages), Lowa (goat tongue with onions and tomato, ooh la la), cheley (buff offal, but here they serve an okayish boneless chicken), Shapta (thinly sliced buff with onions, nice), and Tingmo (Tibetan steamed bread). The highlight of the meal is Lowa – here is a dish that just melts in the mouth. It is a dish worth repeating often. I wouldn’t get bored of even if I had it every day.



What follows is the Nepalese Platter (Rs 525). Sekhna (char grilled mutton pieces), Sukuti Sadeko (buff jerky), Phokso (goat intestines), Bhatmas (soya bean salad) and Chuira (crisped beaten rice) are all nice, though Bhatmas takes a bit of time to get used to.

The dishes from the North East are an utter letdown. Jadoh with Dohkhleh (Rs 395) or rice cooked in meat stock along with a meat and egg salad, lacks the meaty flavour and tastes like any average pulao. Pork with Bamboo shoot curry (Rs 425) completely lacks the umami hit that bamboo shoot is meant to provide and lacks any character.


Yeti has some great dishes, especially in their Tibetan and Nepalese repertoire.  Till they get their North Eastern dishes right, you will do well to avoid them. But I will go back for a repeat of Lowa and the Nepali potato starter, plus check out their Jhol Momos and Dry Thukpa.
