We stayed on the road to Chalok bay and this was one of the restaurants which was closest to us. Having eaten here on our first night we had no hesitation in returning twice more for well-cooked and tasty Thai food. The Massaman curry here was a particular favourite. Prices were reasonable and... read more

Thai Red Curry was one of the best we had, also had something along the lines of Chicken in Garlic and the home made lemon tea was sensational. Always seemed to be quite crowded, located on the South of the island neighbouring a few other bars.

I stayed in Chalok Ban Kao for 6 nights, and I wished I'd found this place earlier on in my stay - I'd have eaten here every night! Lovely little place, with the most fantastic fresh Thai food. I am not normally a fan of spring rolls, but the ones I had here were absolutely delicious - light, crispy rolls... More

Must visit restaurant when staying around Chalok Baan. Great food at a very reasonable price. My wife and I ate here a number of times during our visit, and after trying other restaurants in the vicinity, we would return to the Yin Yang. What more do you want, freshly cooked food served by friendly staff.

This place doesn't look much from the outside and you could easily pass it by. But don't. This was probably our best meal in Koh Tao. I had the Indian curry and my husband had the garlic pepper chicken. Both were gorgeous full of flavour so beautifully presented and at such a reasonable price. We had been to Fishy Burgers... More

We stayed on Ko Tao for a week during our month of island hopping in southern Thailand. The food was so amazing and cheap that we went back day after day to try new things on the menu... nothing disappointed!! The rest of our trip, we couldn't find any food that measured up to the awesome food at Yin Yang!

Loved this restaurant for the fact that they had great big chunks of veg in their dishes, really tasty. There were not many options for those that do not want Thai food (small children) but we got by as the Thai dishes were fantastic and we went a few times. Value for money too.
