P'Ae takes pride in cooking her massaman the traditional way: long cooking time, big pot, big chunks of chicken... And it really translates to the taste of it. It is indeed my favorite thai restaurant and dish on Koh Tao (I have been living here for over 4 years) and I come several times a week. Choose spicy or not... More

Great good value food- we did find on Trip Advisor and the reviews were accurate. The queues built up in the evening at about 7.45 but it is worth it and the drinks shakes, cocktails are excellent too. Service does become rather slow when they are busy

It is actually the only place in Koh Tao that I did not find with Trip Advisor. Quite easy: every time we walked passed, the place was packed and there was a long queue of people standing by to get a table. One of those signs that tells you they must know something great that you don't. Wisely enough, we... More

Loved this place so much that we went back 3 times! The food is delicious and great quality with lots of different choices on the menu. The staff are also very friendly and make a mean cocktail-you can definitely taste the alcohol! This place has a great atmosphere and you can appreciate the hard graft of a small business. Support...

The food is perfect! Everything is delicious and the had so many vegan options, plus you can order every meal with tofu or different kind of meat. Dessert is delicous, especially Mango with sticky rice. And everything is so cheap, cocktails for 109 baht. AND there lives a very cute cat :)

We ate here on our last night on koh tao the service was impeccable and the food was good. The pineapple shake was delicious. I would go back again just for the drinks.

Really enjoyed eating here on two occasions. It's the busiest place in Chalok, with people queueing to get in later in the evening. Good menu with some of the best food I had in Thailand: lots of fresh herbs and veg. Tasty and a good amount of spice. Their juices are freshly squeezed and taste amazing. Reasonable price - not...

The masaman curry, Som Tam Tod, Sam Tam Salad,Talapia in Red Curry sauce and Tom Ka were stand out dishes for... More

Yin Yang restaurant in Chalok serves great food at good prices. It's usually pretty crowded at dinnertime and for a good reason. My personal favourite is the noodle curry, which I yearned for when I wasn't on Koh Tao. Their dishes are beautifully presented, come out fast and are absolutely delicious. They ask for your preferred spiciness, which is great,... More
