Tasty food and good service

We enjoyed our food very much. We had the banana leaf salad, chicken and potato and the grilled aubergine - all very tasty and would recommend. The Cuban mojitos are a must try! Lovely and attentive service. Will definitely try to return whilst in Hanoi!

This restaurant was probably the best food we have experienced in Vietnam so far! The food was delicious and very filling. We were offered a spring roll started with a salad, then a chicken dish, beef dish, prawn fish and steamed rice, followed by a fruit dessert. It was worth the money and we would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time here, stopping by for a quick lunch and discovered probably one of the best Vietnamese food we had In our trip across Vietnam. I'm not a meat fan, but totally loved the Bun cha, the herbs in it tasted soo fresh!! And it was also very cool chatting with Hana (I hope I spelled her... More

Felt this was the least accurately reviewed restaurant so far. Really wanting to experience as much Vietnamese food as possible while here we felt this was a very average representation. Both our duck in five spices and mak mat pork was tasteless and the surroundings lacked interest, :(

I only became aware of this restaurant early last year and it is now a standard inclusion on my tours, usually for the final dinner before departure. The food is exceptional and the staff attentive. In a country where service is often lacking, Yin & Yang have really raised the bar. The set menu is one of the best.

This unpretentious little spot in the old quarter serves simple, wholesome and tasty food at a very reasonable cost. None of the fine restaurants we ate at in Hanoi - and there are many - was any tastier than the eggplant with crunchy chives and the simple, delicious noodle dishes we had with it. Friendly, pleasant service to boot!

Good food.... Not a great atmosphere. Banana leaf salad and chicken lemon grass skewers were great. Would go back just nothing special.

So looking for somewhere to eat in what can only be described as a sea of options!!! In the old quarter easy to find and great food selection!!! So much so we couldn't decide and order way over what was needed! However, the best food I've had in a while! The grilled pork skewers with sticky rice were immense! And... More
