Yeti – 예티. 2 Forks

Highlights: The curries, fluffy and delicious naan, biryani, price, hours of operation – open till 2:00 AM.

Lowlights: Tandori chicken is dry. Definitely not the highlight. However, if you dunk it in the green chutney, it is quite good. Ask for extra chutney.

Bottom Line: A decent, solid and reasonable choice for Indian fare in Seoul.

2-Fork

When it comes to Indian restaurants in Seoul, everyone has their favorites – Everest, Chaakra, Joyti, Agra, etc. Everest seems to be the consensus choice but based on location (Dongdaemun), I personally haven’t been to. My Indian friends like Joyti. I personally like Yeti. Technically, Yeti is a Nepali restaurant. I am not going to get into the differences between an Indian and Nepali restaurant because I couldn’t tell you. Does it have it curries? Yes. Does it have naan? Yes. Done.

Highlights: The curries, fluffy and delicious naan, biryani, price, hours of operation – open till 2:00 AM.

Lowlights: Tandori chicken is dry. Definitely not the highlight. However, if you dunk it in the green chutney, it is quite good. Ask for extra chutney.

What makes Yeti unique is that it has a hookah pipe that is available for smoking. It’s probably the only Indian restaurant that I know that has an electronic dart board in the restaurant – fitting that the place is open till 2 AM. The owner speaks fluent Korean. He speaks Korean better than I do. Speaking of that, I was going to check out the new Indian restaurant Lucky that opened in Hapjeong that is operated by the Indian celebrity that was on TV who also speaks Korean fluently. I checked out his menu and it is way overpriced. My Indian friend said that he would NEVER go there – way overpriced. He is imposing a 40% “Hey, I am a celebrity on TV” premium. Thanks but no thanks. Don’t need any of that when there are a lot of very delicious and reasonable Indian / Nepali options out there in Seoul (and Bundang).

Anyhow, when I go there with the family, we get the Dinner Set B for W55,000 and remove the shrimp and replace it with extra tandoori chicken. The shrimp offered there is big but you have to peel it and was a little dry. Not worth it.

All in all, Yeti is a solid choice if you’re in the mood for Indian / Nepali food and you’re in the Hongdae area.
