AMAZING!

A small unassuming restaurant with uncomfortable wooden chairs. The food was average with a good value for money. The chicken wings were very tasty and the coconut shake was nice.

We ate at Yin Yang in Chalok once in the 9 days we were there. Probably would have eaten there more but you can struggle to get a table! The food was good quality and tasty but perhaps a bit more expensive than some other places.

I live next to this restaurant, but am picky about my food. However! It's a perfect match! This place has awesome, made-to-order food that is fresh and healthy. Do it!

We visited Yin Yang three times whilst we were on Koh Tao and had most of the curries on the menu between us. They were all very, very good with the Indian curry being the standout. Great value for money too.

Nice restaurant, perfect location if you're staying in Chalok area. Food can be spicy but the staff will warn you if it is, and if its too much, don't hesitate to ask for more coconut milk .. The deep fried banana and chocolate plate is excellent (enough for 2 persons to share!)

Once we tried the food in this restaurant we decided to eat there everyday till the end of our stay in koh tao. the food there is sooo delicious, best massaman curry in the world, you could really taste the passion for food in each dish. A super friendly staff. A truly Thai experience. I'm gonna miss this place!

We were getting marries out on Ko Tao at the View Point resort the next day so we had 30 plus hungry guests and wanted to treat them all to some real thai food. Myself and my other half had eaten here on a previous trip and so went in that day to chat with the incredible lady owner who... More

Had some basic thai food there, but everything was good - and the crowd is very pleasant as well. Not for local, of course (but where do locals eat on Koh Tao ? Do they really exist ?), but a nice experience, definitely.
