For those on the Chalok Bay side of Koh Tao, this is one of the best places to get your feed. With traditional Thai dishes with a choice of meat. Make sure you try the Thai Papaya salad...the fried salad is amazing! Always bustling with people... Price is not the cheapest in Koh Tao, but your guaranteed some good food... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant every night while in Koh Tao. We attempted to try other places but it was just that good. From the pad Thai to the curries everything is very fresh and tasty. Just be careful with the spice if you like hot then mild will blow your socks off;)

Really good place, the food is cheap and really yummy. A little spicy though so if you don't like, don't hesitate to insist to put low spicy. People are really friendly too. Try the massaman there and enjoy.

Delicious food and they adjust spice for you. Always get it spot on. Go for the red curry stir fry if in doubt. So tasty

We loved Yin Yang so much we went twice! Great curries (and the best no name we have had so far!) Very good value for money too!

Hailed best Thai food on ko tao. The food was mediocre at best. Even though I have not tried any other Thai on the island I highly doubt it is the best! Standard island prices. Been to the restaurant twice service speed depends dramatically on how many people there are in the restaurant. Quick when no one, slow and intermittent... More

I must say I was disappointed with Yin Yang after hearing it had the best thai food on Ko Tao. We had Tom Yam soup, Stir-fried chicken cashew and spring rolls. It was some of the most dull thai food we've ever had. The spring rolls were cold inside and just very average. Too bad we had such a poor... More

This place had some of the nicest food we had in SE asia. We came here with a large group of us and the food came out very quickly, was absolutely delicious and the cost was extremely reasonable. Try the mango shakes!

I would say that their curry is the best thai curry i have tasted. The staff were also very attentive and even lit up mosquito coils underneath the table for us. Try their fried red curry and ask for medium spicy if you can't take spicy food.
