Himalayan Yeti (3515 S. Kingshighway, 314-354-8338) has big expansion plans — with sister restaurants opening in the coming months in both Rock Hill and Sunset Hills.
The Nepalese restaurant, which opened last December in a former Long John Silver's in south city, quickly became a favorite for its $9.99 lunch buffet and its mastery of classic Indian dishes, as well as Nepalese ones. It earned a rave from the RFT's Cheryl Baehr, who described it in the opening sentence of her review as a "five-star restaurant."Now it will open a spin-off, Himalayan Hut (9814 Manchester Road, Rock Hill). Prem Prasai, who is a partner in the business with his brother, chef Dipak Prasai, says that the brothers are just waiting for approval from the county health department. They hope to be open by the weekend, pending the county's sign-off.
