Aey, the owner and chef cooks for love. She shares her passion for real thai food with her clients! Her kitchen is one of the cleanest kitchens in Thailand and she shops for ingredients every morning. She is impeccable. NO MSG is a must in her cooking and she will respect your needs for how spicy you want your food.... More

Yin Yang has the perfect simple thai food. If you want just thai food at a reasonable price this is the place to go! So if you stay at the southern part of Koh Tao, this is were you should have lunch, dinner, whatever!

We just kept coming back to this place, this is how real Thai food should taste like. Every single dish we tried was just awesome. Small place though and some days there was even a line outside if you came too late, but they do their best to squeeze everyone in the best they can. Three thumbs up!

Very tasty food to be had at yin yang. I hag the Panang beef which was just right in the spice department. Unfortunately the beef had not been braised enough so was a little tough. My wife had the spicy noodle soup which was delicious but the noodles had been pre cooked too much and thus were very mushy. The... More
