Very Enjoyable

Loved our meal here - like other reviewers, recommend the Bun Cha and Bun Bo Nam Bo. There were a couple of large(ish) tour groups in there, but we went about 6pm and ordered before they did. Service was good but they kept wanting to take dishes away when we hadn't finished with them!!!!

The food here was average and prices about 5-10 more for most items. My dish of beef and greens with rice noodles lacked the flavours I had at other places, but someone else had the duck with basil and it was very tasty. Staff is friendly and service is reasonably quick.

My family visited Hanoi in 2011 and again this year, and just like every other trip, we would recount our best experiences when we came home. Both times we picked Yin & Yang as our favorite real authentic Vietnamese restaurant. Foods were really really delicious, which is the most important thing, and adding to that is the friendly and helpful... More

Reading other reviews we thought this would be a good place to eat. Unfortunately we had a mediocre meal, poor quality chicken very little spice / greasy. Just un-eadable had to leave it. Had far better street meals at a fraction of the price. Cannot recommend at all Robert

Small but cosy restaurant serving a good selection of Vietnamese food with a touch of Western, located in the old quarter worth the visit.

We risked life and limb crossing the nightmarish streets to get to this restaurant only to be bitterly disappointed. The little waitress was really friendly, but sadly that just does not make up for the really bad food. We had the fresh spring rolls and the banana blossom salad. The rolls were ok, albeit the overly sweet noc cham. The... More

We had a great dinner here. Prices were average for what you can get in another similar restaurant, and evrerything we ordered was a success. Staff were very nice, we came here twice, and both were very good experiences. The restaurant has two floors.

We ate here as a large group with a pre-selected menu so I didn't have the opportunity to see the menu or order off the menu. The food was fresh but most of the dishes that were brought out for us were not things that I would eat or like. I am an extremely picky eater and there are only... More

This little restaurant located in central old quarter and easy to find. We just walked in by accident and did not dissappoint about that. Highly recommend you if in Hanoi!!

We went as three people and shared four dishes, three of which included rice. All four dishes were delicious and ample food. The roast duck is amazing. Great service and central location.
