We ate here on a recent trip to Mexico City. The food in Yuban was complex, had beautiful flavors, and was truly unlike any we have had anywhere else. The staff was exceptionally attentive. It was one of the most delicious meals we have had in a very long time, and definitely the best we had in Mexico City. The atmosphere was warm and unpretentious. We can't wait to return.

We had a long layover in Mexico City and had read about YUBAN in Travel & Leisure Magazine, so we thought we'd give it a try...and we sure are glad we did! The whole meal was an experience like no other. The service was top notch, and the food was like nothing I had eaten before. I would highly recommend YUBAN!

My friend and I are staying in Mexico City for a couple of days before moving onto cancun. We wanted to experience the culture of Mexico. After a rocky start the evening before with us not being able to speak or read Spanish, I have to mention how welcome we were made to feel from start to finish. Both Louis the manager and Ivan the waiter could not have been more helpful and charming. They both spoke berry good English and were Able to answer any questions we had about the menu and recommend dishes also. The manager even brought us some grasshoppers to try! Much to our surprise, they were very tasty. We had the molotes with chorizo and we were then lucky enough to sample some of the special mole sauces before deciding what to order. We both opted for the estafado. I had it with deer cooked in one of the local special sauces mole. My friend had the same but with pork. The whole experience was lovely. We never once felt rushed or uncomfortable. To finish we had the chocolate cake and creme brûlée, simply delicious. Thanks again to Ivan the waiter and luis the manager. I would definitely recommend it.

A great traditional experience. All the dishes are made with authentic recipes from Oaxaca and with real ingredients. Try the molotes filled with potato and chorizo. The water pepper or chile de agua. Also the traditional mole and the original version called chichilote. Save some place for the delicious chocolate cake.
