The best thai food!

The best thai food we had in THILAND! So much love and soul in every dish! The curry noodle dish is the best dish we had in the whole trip! And the fried banana at the end was the perfect dessert to finish an amazing meal! Don't miss this place in koh tao!

Just when we had started to lose faith in Chalok Baan Khao for it's lack of great thai food, we stumbled upon Yin Yang and thank god we did! It was by far the busiest restaurant we came across in the area and after tasting their food it's obvious why! Their massaman curry was the best we had during our... More

My title says it all, this is my 3rd visit to Koh Tao and the Yin Yang restaurant, which I visit each time as well. Yesterday I had one of the salads for a change, the Crispy Fried Egg and Pork salad which was delicious. Be sure to try the Bananas in Coconut Milk for desert!

On one of our first nights at Chalok Baan Khao we were walking down the main street looking for somewhere to have dinner. Many restaurants were empty or had just a few customers. Then we got to a very basic looking restaurant that was absolutely full of people. That was Yin Yang. We visited many times during our stay and... More

Their food is very reasonably priced, you get portions in a decent size and the staff is friendly. The only problem is, like many thai restaurants, you have to wait a while for your food sometimes, but i don't blame them -They are always really busy.

I've been trying to get to eat at Yin Yang since it opened and finally did the other night. It was extremely busy, so a little bit slow, but great fresh tasting thai food. Plenty of it, good taste, good selection on menu and also good service.

The restaurant was close to our hotel in the south of the island, so we decided to try. There was good options of Thai food for a cheap price.

Definitely one of the best Thai meals I've ever had, we'd had a few bad experiences with Thai restaurants in the past so were a bit sceptical, but after reading the reviews we decided to give it a go and soooo glad we did would give it 10/10....amazing! Only thing I would say is it was very busy at this... More
