East Bay Nepalese: Kathmandu v. Yak and Yeti or?

  • 2

Kathmandu on Solano in Albany and Yak & Yeti in Berkeley's Elmwood neighborhood appear to get the highest marks for East Bay Nepalese cuisine(Melanie posted a very favorable report on Y&Y recently), but reports on each are mixed. Can anyone offer a comparative evaluation (both food and overall experience) and suggest some don't-miss dishes? Is there better to be had somewhere else in the East Bay?

  1. Y and Y is within walking distance for me, which is a big plus. But the food is rather bland (I was there last night). We ate a lot, and it was just $13 per person before tip.
    Try Taste of the Himalayas on Shattuck and Virginia in Berkeley. They update the menu every month.

    1. Correction: I've not been to Yak and Yeti and have not reported on it. I have asked for information about Namaste and no replies yet.

      This highlights one problem with the Places database. The listings are accredited to the last person who edited it. If I correct the spelling or change a neighborhood, for example, my name appears and the next reader assumes that I agree with everything on the page, when that's not true at all. I'm loathe to delete what the previous person has entered, but maybe I should, if this is a common misunderstanding.
