We have LOVED Yeti for years -- both of the restaurants. This time, the service at the Santa Rosa place was SLOW in a rather empty restaurant, and the lunch specials were salty -- not our usual Yeti!

I have been coming to Yeti's with two groups to which I belong, one of which I coordinate and select the restaurant for over two years. The food has always been good and the noise level is usually not much of a problem. However, the service is your weak spot. In particular, there's a woman who waits tables who seems to have a chip on her shoulder. Sometimes she argues with customers about what they can or can't eat. When customers want individual checks, she drags her feet. She's just not cooperative.

The last time I was there with a group, I tried, as usual, to get Basmati rice (which is on your menu) instead of the white or brown rice she always tries to bring. Basmati rice is yellow, not white or brown. The white stuff is tasteless; the brown stuff is bitter. Basmati rice has a taste, but it's not bitter. That's why I always order it. If you didn't have it on the menu, I would understand that you didn't offer it. However, you do. I've checked the menus three times to be sure I'm right. Guess what? She brought white rice instead. Surprise! She didn't do what I asked yet one more time.

The waitress is surly, impatient, and uncooperative. She's middle-aged and average height, so she has no unusual characteristics I can give you. I usually bring groups in over the noon hour and occasionally at the dinner hour. I only remember seeing her over the lunch hour. I don't know whether she doesn't like European-Americans, doesn't like men, doesn't like older people or what it is that's sticking in her craw about waiting on the groups I bring to your restaurant. What I do know is that something's wrong with her. I'm asking you to try to fix the situation before I have to start taking groups to one of your competitors. If it weren't for your employee's behavior, I wouldn't have any reason to make a change. I started by hoping she was just having a bad day, but it looks like all of her days are bad. Help!

Great ambience and service. Me being an Indian, I did not find some of the food items great. But over all very good. Naans were super soft, pakora was very good, chicken was great.

When people pay for a buffet they expect all the warmers have food in them and with quality food at all times. We had to wait for tandori chicken for a while since they ran out.

I was reared in Asian and have found most South Asian restaurants to be mediocre. Now whenever I’m Passing through Santa Rosa I eat at The Yeti. It is worth the few minutes off US 101.

We had made a reservation for Mother’s Day way in advance. We were disappointed because there was no table reserved and, had to wait for a table to be cleaned next to the restrooms. The restaurant was very crowded and disorganized, food at the buffet wasn’t ready fast enough to satisfy customers demands. The food was good like we were expecting but there were not many options available.

Wonderful food, service and ambiance. We enjoyed our meal, and hung around to listen to some great live dinner jazz that was present, but not intrusive. Excellent menu with plenty of vegetarian options. Servers were friendly, and efficient. Can't wait to go back!

Delicious food as usual. Our "to go" place for Indian food. For some reason service was not up to par this time. We ate our meal off salad plates since no regular size dinner plates were brought to our table when the meal was served. Perhaps they need an extra dish washer?

Our experience at Yeti was wonderdul. They had some of the best Indian food we’ve ever had. There was very nice live jazz music and the interior was tastefully decorates and comfortable. We ate dinner at Yeti with 3 adults and one child. We will go again and would recommend Yeti to anyone who likes Indian food.

Over all the food was good, but the service wait time for your food is lacking; too slow. We were the second group to arrive for opening time (5:00P.). First order of food arrived at 5:55. That is a long time for an appetizer. There were several other people that arrived after we had and their order arrived before ours.

There was 1 server for the whole restaurant at lunch so even though there were only 6 parties in the entire place, the service was extremely slow and lackluster. Even when the server stopped by, she was not helpful. We asked what the difference is between the Nepalese version and Indian version of the same named dish and she responded that one was from Nepal. No recommendations, no ability to talk about the food, and no follow up. We would’ve preferred ordering on an iPad. If the service was better, I would return.

The food is always great for lunch. It is a little pricey for lunch but well worth it for the quality. Actually they did lower their prices a bit.

We live in Santa Rosa (where the restaurant is located) and Yeti's is one of our favorite places. On occasion when we entered the music was at a higher level than we wished and when we asked that it be lowered it always was. The people who serve you are incredibly nice and food is delicious. Every time we go we totally enjoy it.

Yeti's in Santa Rosa is a fine Indian restaurant. The food is quite good, though the ambiance is nowhere as near as good as the Glen Ellen Yeti (Santa Rosa is a re-furbished Lyons). Service is excellent, parking is free, and prices are reasonable.

Yeti is the best Indian/Himalayan food in the Santa Rosa area, with fresh ingredients, creative menu, good spice levels, amazing naan bread, it is the place to go if you are craving high quality Indian cuisine. The service was a bit slow on a weeknight that was terribly busy but very friendly and thoughtful. Will definitely return.

One can never go wrong with the chicken masala at Yeti! We had the samosas and bhajis as well. Both came with a mild, medium and spicy sauce that were absolutely delicious!

Yeti has never let us down! The food is excellent and the service attentive. Large portions, so we always take home enough for another meal at home. The wine is priced fairly and the pours are generous. We also love their other restaurant in Glen Ellen.

i took my mom there for something different. I am trying several restaurants in the Santa Rosa area to pick one to celebrate her 100th birthday. I wanted to try the buffet so that we could get a sample of their curries and other dishes. The food was tasty and the servers attentive. A nice new experience for her and I know she liked it as she finished her plate. A nice hidden gem.

I was greatly looking forward to another meal at Yeti.

Unfortunately, the fish masala was underwhelming. The others ordered the chicken masala which was delicious.

The garlic and garlic cilantro naans were delicious.
