Well, ever since I returned from India I've been searching for some good sub-continent food. The Yak and Yeti has it. I'd love to do a food review here, but it's all about the beer. Still, the food was great...a bit pricey, but the entrees are really 2 meals.
Atmosphere is cozy, mostly Indian. A weird buffet table that wasn't in use was in the corner. Smelled great. Nice carpeted floor. Quaint rooms (didn't go upstairs) and a relaxed patio. Bar up front.
About 10 beers on tap. A couple rotating handles and seasonals. Prices are a tad high, but happy hour is nice. I had the English mild and it was tasty. Didn't quite go with the food, but I didn't care.
Service is just short of 'in your face', but friendly and prompt. I've found a new place. Will hit this cozy eatery once a month methinks.

Atmosphere - fairly dark and quiet. Sat at the bar, so can't speak to the dining area.
Quality - the Himalayan and West Coast Glutton were enjoyable.
Service - pretty sure the owners high school family member was behind the bar. Nice kid, but not much to talk to.
Selection - enjoyed the IPAs and would like to try the saisons and the chai stout another time.
Food - not much of an Indian food fan, but what I had was pretty good.
Value - considered getting a growler of the DIPA, but just a bit too pricey considering the overall quality.

The Yak and Yeti was a bit of a surprise for me. I was expecting a much smaller less robust restaurant. Have no mistake you will be selecting from a large menu, and I believe about 12 draft options.
I had a great meal with 5 different beers. The food was delicious, and I'll definitely be bringing my wife & kids back sometime to eat. Prices were fair but a bit higher than I assumed. I ate at the bar and didn't take the time to check out the rest of the establishment.
I learned the brewer here also does some beers for Colorado + to south just off Wadsworth. The standouts for me were the Himalayan IPA and the Chai Milk Stout. I do want to return and try all of their brews, as what I did taste was fair to great.

Indian buffet is great with classic Northern and Southern indian options (vegetarian or meat). The beer is solid with options for everyone - light, fruity beers, chai stout, hop heavy IPAs. Bar area is tight and ordering a drink can sometimes be a trial in patience. That said, wait staff is friendly when you get their attention.
