I went to Yin & Yang restaurant under my hotel manager recommendation, at first I wasn't sure about the place as the atmosphere wasn't exactly what I was looking for but the amazing tasting food and the excellent and friedly service made me forget about the more cosy atmosphere I was looking for at first. Great food, great service, a... More

Our tour guide ordered dishes for us in this restaurant for our first lunch in vietnam: fresh spring rolls with fried fish, lemon grass beef, sweet and sour chicken, fried rolls, and sauteed vegetables. The food was very tasty and flavorful. We fell in love with vietnamese cuisine on the spot! The service was very good, so as the atmosphere.... More

Great food. The galangal fish self made rolls were delicious, though just a bit weird the waitress wearing plastic gloves to show us how to roll them. The banana flower salad was also delicious. Four dishes and four drinks were around 650k so not cheap by vietnamese standards but really enjoyable. Just be careful to order interesting flavoursome dishes and... More

We went to this restaurant due to high recommendation on Tripadvisor but were really disapointed, there was nothing special in what we ate. We took the hanoi style duck and the chicken with lemon sauce and were not impressed. Everything was blend and tasteless we had much better food on the street. To avoid if you want to experience something... More

We found the restaurant in the Lonely Planet guidebook and we decided to verify it. It is not present at the house #78 but the people working there advised us to go to #48. We could check the menu before we entered inside. When we came in we were happy that the noise of the street disappeared. It was really... More

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
