We came here on our third night in Hanoi, looking for a little change from the streetfood, and ending up enjoying it so much we came back the next night! The banana flower salad, bun cha, and duckling dish with rice were all excellent and very well priced, but it was the duck that stood out. It epitomized Vietnamese food... More

If you're looking for top notch authentic Vietnamese food experience, this is your place. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the staff are very friendly and are happy to offer recommendations to match your palate. It's a great spot if you're a bit apprehensive about street food (awww, c'mon) or just want to sit on normal-sized chairs in a... More

Yeah pretty corny tag line but I'm jet lagged and in noodle withdrawal. Great restaurant in middle of Hanoi's bustling Old Quarter. Lovely cool, calm setting with excellent service. Good value with a range of dishes. I had tradition noodley stuff ( Bun Cha I think and another dish ) as well as the banana flower salad and some beer.... More

You are tired of over serviced hotel style restaurants in Hanoi but still look for great Vietnamese food in a non street food place? Then Yin & Yang is the right place for you. Best Vietnamese dinner we had in Hanoi at comparably low prices (less than VND 400k for starters, main and drinks). Definitely recommend the different roles as... More

Had lunch here, a quiet and peaceful haven from the bustle outside with modern, light and attractive surroundings and great service. We were shown how to put together the spring rolls with: rice paper, thinly sliced cucumber, ginger, pineapple, dill, chile, and fish/ meat as well as other spices and sauces. It was all so fresh and delicious. Great value... More

Yin & Yang is a lovely restaurant offering authentic food in the tourist/old town section of Hanoi. The restaurant is very clean, and menu offers a good range of local, fresh food. The price was slightly higher than other restaurants in the area, but as we are only talking about $1 or $2 difference in price, it was no big... More

We had lunch for 5 people here and everything brought to the table was very fresh and very tasty. Outside, the heat and humidity were overpowering, so this was a great, air-conditioned, place, right in the middle of things, where we ate well and cooled off. The fried fish was great. The décor is simple, modern, nothing special, but the... More

I had the pork ribs here and they were amazing. The meat just fell off the bone, cooked to perfection! The best food I've had this trip!

Went here for dinner and had a really really nice meal. Definitely our best in Hanoi so far after 3 days here. We were undecided on which dish to go for but the friendly waitress was happy to explain the traditional Hanoi dishes and how they were made! This was a bonus as we went with her suggestions and loved... More

We had dinner in this restaurant yesterday following the good recommendations we found on tripadvisor. We haven't been disappointed. The place was quite full, mostly westerners, but nevertheless the service was very friendly and we did not have to wait for our food. The interior of the restaurant looks a bit simple, doesn't have much of an athmosphere. Though there... More
