This restaurant has recently been revamped and has a garden area with tidy, if somewhat characterless/functional interior. Reasonable food on offer, though it appears the effects of previous reviews have pushed the prices up which makes it less value for money than what is on offer at many restaurants in the area.

Having spotted Yin Yang restaurant while walking around Thamel we decided this was the place to go for our final night in Nepal. As a group of 4 we tried a couple of entrees plus their Thai, pasta and steak dishes and all were really delightful. It was a cool December evening so we elected to eat inside where the... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Kathmandu. Lovely ambience, great service and excellent Thai delicacy. I had the prawn tom yum soup, chicken salad and pad thai. Everything was excellent. I also like that the waiters were really polite and they were really nice to share some insights about shopping in Thamel area.

Highly recommend this place, particularly the tom yam gai - really appreciated being able to choose the heat level too (heat is good). Sitting outside is a bonus, particuarly with the fire. More expensive than a lot of places in Thamel but then you get what you pay for and still cheap compared to London prices!

To me, this restaurant is the best in all of Kathmandu. I have known it for years and loved it every time, never to be disappointed. They have a wide choice of different dishes like Thai and Indian dishes but to me personally, their Continental menu is the reason I kept going back to this delightful and cleanest of places....

Great place for Thai food in Thamel, food was really good and comparable to other good Thai restaurants I have enjoyed. I am sure I didn't just like it because I just came back from EBC trek and this was nice change. Outdoor seating was very nice, great ambiance. They did had indoor seating but I didn't see it. Service... More

I was so sad when this restaurant was closed when I was in KTM in October 2015 but delighted to see that it was open again this October. There is a wonderful outdoor courtyard and large indoor areas to dine. There is a Thai menu and a continental menu. I love Thai food and have experienced it in many places... More

Food was very good but I felt it was rather expensive in comparison to other options available in Thamel. Bit of a tourist trap.

I love the typical Nepali food and have eaten Dal Bhat for the last week--every day, so we were looking for a good upscale restaurant that served something else. Thai hit the spot! They also serve other good food like grilled salmon and veggies but the Thai cuisine was excellent! We ordered a light meal of papaya salad--one of the... More

We enjoyed a fine dinner here. Yin Yang, centrally located in busy Thamel, is a restaurant with tablecloths, patio seating, fine wines, and reasonably good Thai food. I found portions to be on the smaller side but the 4 of us shared several dishes and came away satiated.The price was a bit high, given that one can find a perfectly... More
