Located inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, Yak & Yeti serves up Asian-inspired dishes in the Asia area of the park. Owned by Landry’s Restaurant Group, Yak & Yeti takes part in the Landry’s Select Club membership where you can get priority seating, even without a reservation. Since we did not book a reservation and no reservations were available, we opted for this service, and we were seated after a short wait. Upon getting seated and provided with menus, a server arrived to take our order.

Today, we decided to order the crispy honey chicken, lobster garlic noodles, and the sriracha fish tacos. We had ordered the Shanghai lemonade as well, which tasted pretty good, but learned afterwards that refills were not included. The crispy honey chicken came with vegetables and a side of rice. Unfortunately, there was an abundance of breading on a savory and sweet glazed chicken. The lobster garlic noodles tasted OK, but was quite fishy. There were a decent amount of lobster chunks in the dish, but they were quite rubbery, and I was expecting more garlic. The sriracha fish tacos tasted delicious and each bite was fulfilling. The slaw, sauce, and fish went perfectly together in the tortilla.

Overall, Yak & Yeti produces decent food, but prices are quite high for what you get. The sriracha fish tacos were worth every penny even at $19, but the lobster garlic noodles were a rip off at $31. Service was decent, but it would have been nice if the server checked on us more frequently at the end of the meal. We were given the choice of earning Landry’s Select club points, or utilizing a AP/DVC discount, so we opted for the discount since the meal was so expensive. If you are looking for some Asian food and don’t feel like leaving the park, then you will find something you like here, but don’t keep your hopes up on value and taste.
