Good food, painfully slow service

We thought we'd treat ourselves to dinner at this well known restaurant but if you're thinking of doing the same, make sure you have a lot of time to waste.

I followed the recommendations by Lonely Planet and was not disappointed. The Green Thai Curry tasted like it should and was a fantastic. My taste buds were the happiest! Service was good and friendly. Upstairs there are two sections, to the right are regular tables, to the left you can it on soft pillows on the ground. I will be... More

I ordered a steak after seeing someone else order it a previous time I went here. It came out sizzling from the kitchen, and it was really cool. it was also insanely tasty, it had to be one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The gravy and the meat was just soo good.

Comes highly reommended in the guide books. Food was adequate & service fair. We both had 2 courses and 2 local beers. £45 ($70) for 2 in a city where a good meal costs less than half what we paid is over he top

I am an American on a business trip in Kathmandu. In America we have a cute saying. “Been there, done that, going back”. That is certainly the case for me with the Yin and Yang restaurant. I have always enjoyed Thai food and the Yin and Yang restaurant did not disappoint. I had the spring rolls as an appetizer and... More

Good Thai food! Can recommend the Chicken Satay, stir-fried Chicken with cashew and Tom Kah Kai. Even at night it is nice to sit outside on the patio terrace. Very cosy and warm with the several fires burning ;-)

We stopped here for lunch as it was recommended by a few books. Was good thai, service wasn't too bad. We ordered a chicken stir fry and a curry, the stir fry was amazing, we couldn't get enough of it. The curry was okay, nothing too special. The price was quite high for the level of food and service WE... More

We had a wonderful meal with friendly and prompt service. The beer was cold the cocktails well made. The spring rolls excellent and the main courses quite good. Would go back on my next trip to Kathmandu.

Yin Yang was a delightful find for Muslim travellers because of their halal menu. The service was fantastic and the food was also delicious, with very generous servings. All of us struggled to finish our meals! I ordered a simple chicken fried rice and it was cooked perfectly. It is a bit on the pricey end, but if you're looking... More
