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...

We spend 4 nights in Koh Tao and ate here 3 of those nights. My husband and I tried a range of dishes and could not fault any. The food was excellent quality, great portions and very fairly priced. 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

Delicious food, quick service and mosquito coils burnt under each table. Really great restaurant definitely worth a visit if in the area! I had the garlic and pepper chicken with rice which was divine and I was served a mountain of chicken, they're definitely not tight on this. My boyfriend ordered a pad Thai which he loved and we shared... More

In our 6 nights there at Chalok, there is never a more crowded dinner place. It's never wrong to follow the crowd. We had the papaya salad almost at every meal which was at least a meal a day. We tried their spring rolls, rad na(thai rice noodles with gravy), curry noodles, tom yum soup and many more. Every dish... More

We came here upon a recommendation from our dive instructor. For the price, this was the best papaya salad and noodle dishes I've had in Thailand served at a table. A meal is going to set you back about US$3, but it's well worth it. I've yet to find a place with a papaya salad that tastes this fresh outside... More

Place is pretty busy - there is no completion close. I had nice food there and service was nice ( acceptable ). I don't give five however because I think my spring rolls were different every time I ordered them. First time taste was perfect and second time was pretty different ( less fresh in my opinion ). I don't... More

The front desk at our resort recommended this restaurant and it was pretty good. I had a thai noodle dish and my husband had the whole fish and he loved it! He raved about it the entire time we were on the island. We also had the chicken wings as an appetizer and they were yummy! The sauce that came... More

I ate here a few times while doing my diving course. The food is so tasty and cheap. It was always pretty busy but the service was always quick. I'm a vegetarian and they made all my dishes meat free and without any fish sauces.

My friends and I stayed on Koh Tao for a week to get my scuba diving license and we went to this restaurant almost every night for dinner. The last night there, I decided to try their coconut smoothie for the first time (previously, I had just been getting water). I asked them to put no sugar in the smoothie... More
