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.

Seriously, I don't say this lightly. I have had a lot fo curry, and the Massaman curry here is litterally the best curry I have ever had. Seriously the best. Chicken falls appart. Spiced to perfection. Get it with egg fired rice. I miss this curry in my life. And rent your motorbike from the shop next door. The guys... More

This has to be one of the most popular restaurants in Koh Tao and it is incredible. The service is as fast as it can be (always busy), and every server has a smile! Our family of four, including our 10 and 8 year old, were stuffed by the end. The highlight? The massaman curry and the spring rolls. When... More

We spent 6 nights in Koh Tao and ate at Yin Yang multiple times. It was some of the best food we've eaten in Thailand with some of the highlights being the green curry, massaman curry and the red curry stirfry. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

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!
