The dishes combine spices, fruits, fish and more in new and interesting ways. The ceviche, with fish, watermelon, and other ingredients, was among the best I have had. And the presentation was a dream- painting of pleasure. One minus was the somewhat indifferent service. Another is a quibble, but one of the desserts (the brioche) tried too hard and could... More

Stopped by on a Monday night; they were closing early for cleaning (be sure to make a reservation on Mondays) but were kind enough to fit us in. Omar, our server, was friendly and made great recommendations for our cocktails (don't know the name, but the lemon, ginger, mezcal concoction was phenomenal). Our two mole main courses (amarillo and verde)... More

yuban.mx offers a unique approach to the cuisine from the zapotec region of Mexico (mainly Oaxaca, though it extended into other states), insofar as it has kept the "simple, earthy, home" usage of native ingredients, but in an modern "haute cuisine" preparation and display. The locale is easy to find, it is decorated in an inviting-simple way, allowing for lunches/dinner... More

Great bar on Colima with authentic Oaxaca cuisine - including the infamous grasshoppers. We only stayed for drinks but thoroughly enjoyed them - both Mezcal straight up and Mezcal infused cocktail. Also had some delicious Mexican craft beer. Great little patio to spend a sunny afternoon. Service was excellent - we were served by Ommar who was knowledgeable and friendly.

Very sweet and tasty amuse bouche. Server was very patient with me being gluten and dairy free. My mezcal cocktail was good, if a little sweet. We both had mole, mine was the Amaritto (sp) and it was DELICIOUS. They have dairy free coconut ice cream! I would go back.

Went on a Tuesday. Took the recommendations of our server Victor for cocktails, vino and entrées. Excellent all around - particularly the fresh tuna app, dry ice rosemary mezcal drink and the green mole panceta.

Wonderful meal and mezcal cocktails. Victor is the best waiter. Having lived in Oaxaca, I can say that the food is legit. We

We showed up late on a Monday night to Yuban after reading about it on Eater. The drinks and food were fantastic. Modern takes on Mexican cuisine, but nothing weird or overly gimicky about the food.

Everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. Amazing balance and attention to details in both the food and the atmosphere. Servers are friendly and knowledgable. This was my favorite restaurant while visiting Mexico City.
