"Dancing Yak is a true SF gem! . . .The restaurant has a hip, tasteful, and laid back ambiance along with amazing food and very friendly staff. . . I ordered the pork belly bhutwa and the chicken momos along with a Mango beer. Everything was incredibly well seasoned and so much better than I expected. . . The next time I visit San Francisco, I would love to return to Dancing Yak!"
"We ordered the pork momos and the butter chicken. This was my first time trying momos and it was mouthwatering! . . . I promise you can't go wrong and it opened up new tastebuds for me. The butter chicken with the garlic naan was so tasty too I would order it again. This way my first experience with Nepalese food and I can't wait to try more! . . ."
"I love you, Dancing Yak! If I could come up with a list of top foods I'd want to indulge in before I die, this would make the cut. I mean it, haha - I have gone here for my birthday, this was of my first post-partum meals, and recently ordered again to celebrate a milestone of my newborn baby. If that doesn't tell you how special the food is here to me, haha."
