The food and drinks are delicious! Service was fantastic, too. Will definitely be back:)
This is my second visit to the restaurant and it was as good as my 1st experience. Food was so good! Well balanced and clean flavors with some interesting twist. Great service and owner lady walks around checking everything with such a present manner. Only complain was the cocktail service was little slow since it was busy Friday. I will definitely come back!
The food is amazing and delicious and the cocktails are creative and hard-to-resist.
The Dancing Yak was absolutely amazing! The service was exceptional, the craft cocktails were to die for, and there are so many wonderful things on the menu that it was difficult to choose. Everything that we had was perfection. I look forward to a return visit the next time I’m in town!
Food was superb as always! Higly recommended! ❤️
First off, walking in, it’s a really beautiful space
Then the people are all genuinely nice and knowledgeable
The cocktail menu is inventive and sophisticated. Great plays off classics and interesting originals.
The food is also stellar (momos are very flavorful and come in three varieties, chicken, pork and vegetarian). Could really make a whole meal of the starter list
We had the house special chicken and a goat curry with tamarind rice. All excellent
We will definitely be back
Server did a great job guiding us. Food was amazing and highly recommend the Dancing Yak!
The food at Dancing Yak is very flavorful. The restaurant offers a variety of food, including vegetarian and gluten free options. The dining room is painted bright and lively colors.
Great food, creative menu, lots of vegan and meat lover options, great service.
Luv this place. They have great a great cocktail menu, and the food is really delicious. I went with my boyfriend, and we shared everything. Our list of "must-haves" every time we go are Kale Chaat, biryani, and Butter Chicken. This visit we tried the watermelon salad (highly recommended!) and the Dhading Chicken which was also a pleasant discovery. I also love the spicy cauliflower but be forewarned, it is SPICY!
Phenomenal food and service
Dancing Yak was phenomenal!!! Gluten free options were great, super accommodating. Loved everything!
Everything was better than expected! Loved the vibe! The service was friendly and attentive. The food was flavorful and well presented. The cocktails were delicious and creative. Can’t wait to go back!
The food is incredible here. I've never had Nepalese food before and the flavor combinations blew my mind. If Indian, Burmese and Ethipian cuisine got togher and birthed a new cuisine, that's what you would be cradling on your tongue. Book a table and enjoy the flavor adventure and excellent cocktail/wines selection. Great for sharing plates with groups of friends or an intimate date.
great experience. food delicious, spice levels vary so there is something for everyone. loved the pakoda and the cashew curry; husband loved the spicy cauliflower and butter chicken. good cocktails. one warning; our seats were surrounded by others and the noise level was high; if this is an issue for you take note of your table's location.
Incredible food, drinks, and service!
The food was AAAAmazing! Such exciting flavors. Great ambiance, too!
Very good…. review on Yelp.
Do not hesitate to book a table here. The food was absolutely fantastic with rich complex flavors. You wouldn't necessarily expect it but the cocktails were also truly amazing, highly recommend you try one.
Kicking off a friends solo trip to Nepal! Great service and attention to her upcoming adventure. She was very shocked everyone knew why we were there. Fantastic place! Great help in ordering things we have never seen before.
Good flavors and fun food but not necessarily the best for sharing due to dish size
i've been here three times. twice for dinner. the two times i've been here for dinner, five stars easy. i went here for brunch last sunday, did not quite make the mark. the food was not quite as good. the service was not quite there. we had a table of six, they served four of us and made two of us wait for our food. that was weird. the service was very slow. when i went for dinner, the service was fantastic. overall the food is wonderful and i think it is a great place. maybe not for big groups or sunday brunch.
Everything is great except for how much they charge for a glass of vodka martini - was in shock when seeing the bill.
A must visit restaurant. Like a trip to Nepal. So warm and friendly.
Great place. Friendly staff and great food!
My friends and I have been returning to Dancing Yak because we love the food there. The dishes are very good and priced right. Dancing Yak never disappoint every time we dine there for lunch. And the portions is good for sharing. A neighborhood gem. Try the Kale Chaat - it is a wonderful salad; also don't forget to try the Chicken Momo - a wonderful dumpling with great sauce. We always order the Tikka Masala Curry here; it never disappoint. Overall, Dancing Yak is a great restaurant for group lunch. I highly recommend this place to my friends.
Great environment and food.
Tandoori chicken platter is a must order and highly recommend several na’an orders for the table. Drinks very reasonably priced!
Great vegan optiobs
Outstanding food and extensive gluten free vegan options
I really liked the food. Great flavors and a good amount of heat. The momo's were a little disappointing (not that flavorful and yet spicy) but the chicken tikka was excellent as was the kale/chickpea chaat. The pani puri liquid was a little too watery in terms of texture I thought (I like it more like tamarind sauce), but the flavor of them alone was good.
The best spot for vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores to gather and have a good meal together!
Good food good value sufficient service.
Really loved this restaurant. Went for a nice long lunch with a friend, eclectic decor, spacious, delicious food, fantastic service this place has a really good vibe.
This is a neighborhood favorite place! The food is incredible!
The food and service was excellent! Will definitely go back :)
Great food, lovely ambiance
In the past we have loved Dancing Yak’s food, but something was just wrong on Saturday. The food didn’t taste fresh at all, specifically the cashew curry. It tasted like old leftovers :(
I made reservation for my birthday 2-3 weeks in advance, but when we got there there was no table ready for us. The hostess, who later said is the owner, tried to put it on my family being 5-10min late (but I was there earlier), then claimed my reservation was for 7pm and I was late (until I showed her the 7:30pm open table confirmation). The whole experience was very unpleasant, and instead of making up for it or at least apologizing she was blaming me and when I pointed out the poor reception, she encouraged me to go eat elsewhere. Which I gladly did. This is the Mission with tons of options within a block or two after all. What a disappointment!
