Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Chose to eat here due to excellent reviews, especially for the curries. It was my worst experience of 4 months in Thailand, ordered 2 panang curries and they came with poor quality chicken, water as the sauce, and a mix of odd and blank vegetables....Quite expensive too. Really so disappointing.More

We chose to try this restaurant which looked nice but turned out to be a bad experience. We ordered a panang curry and a noodle soup and we got served a green curry and a soup without any noodles. When we told them there was...an error and that the green curry was not what we ordered, instead of apologizing and changing our dish, they were very dishonest and insisted the green curry was panang and said it was green because we had asked for low spice. How ridiculous! We have had many panang currys during our stay in Thailand and this was definitely not what we had ordered and didnt even look like the picture on their menu. Not nice being taken for a ride. The other restaurants by the side are much nicer and the people nice.More

We went for dinner here 4 out of our 7 days in Koh Tao. The noodle bowl was our fav dish but the Massaman was right up there.

A fabulous local eatery. We went several times during our stay at Chalok Bay. The staff are lovely and speak good English. All the food is cooked fresh to order. Everything is delicious. The food is not expensive and the service is great. Highly recommended.

In one of the last days of our twoweek holiday on the Thailand islands Samui, Phangan and Tao, I had the best green curry this holiday. And we only eat Thai food over here 😃 It was spicy. That was my choice. But WOW it...was also tasteful. Filled with a great variety of vegetables of which some I couldn’t identify. If you have a chance, go and eat at Yin Yang on Koh Tao!More

Just WOW! If you're looking for a hearty, slow cooked Thai curry that is bursting with flavour and full of fresh ingredients then you gotta go to Yin Yang. Can highly recommend the following dishes: 1. Yin Yang curry w chicken 2. Massaman Curry w...chicken 3. Somtam Tohd 4. No Name They've only just reopened after covid which explains the current ranking on Tripadvisor but soon enough, people are going to be queuing round the block again for this place. Great value, great service & flawless food. NEVER disappoints.More

We chose this restaurant as it was really busy, to me always a sign that the foods good. Well, it turned out the reason it was busy was that they took over an hour to serve your food! Also they randomly serve so people that...come in after got their food before. I normally have no issue in waiting but this was excessive. The food itself was fine but there’s better places to eat which serve better food and cheaper.More

We ate here having been recommended by the team at Ocean Sound. Great if your looking specifically for Thai Food (although you can get a burger and fries as well). Food was very tasty, the staff and service were very good, and our meal overall...was enjoyable. A fly flew into my food, and the staff immediately offered to make me a fresh meal, to which I declined as it was in there seconds. They then discounted our meal, which we made up by tipping as it really wasnt their fault. The gesture in itself was appreciated, and we would definitely eat here again on our next visit to kho tao. If you want good Thai Food and a friendly atmosphere, be sure to pay this place a visit :)More

We were looking for some good restaurants and found Yin Yang. First impression on a restaurant was it has a funny smell. Coconut shakes were delicious but rest of the food not. I don't understand the comments about how delicious the food is or that...it's the best thai food ever. Food was not so tasty and we had much better food in other restaurants.More

I think the food is tasteful, enough to choose from. Service is fine, friendly people! For me it would score higher if they would prohibit smoking, as it has a roof & the smoke is really annoying when you try to eat
