Went there around 8pm and got the last table, so come early! They offer a variety of different Thai dishes. I had the Masaman curry and ordered it spicy. In many restaurants they give you a tourist version of 'spicy' but not here. It was just perfectly spiced. If you can't handle spicy, just order mild. Prices are fair too:)

We ate here a few times during a month on the island. We never had anything but a superb meal. Service is friendly but can be a bit manic sometimes as they are always busy. People queue in the road to get into the restaurant but it is well worth the wait.

This restaurant is close to a very beautiful Freedom beach in Koh Tao. We came here for lunch as we needed a break from the sun. The restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere. The staff are friendly and attentive. The menu has all the local dishes. We had sticky rice and mango, and Massaman curry. The portion are quite large. The... More

This is the perfect place to eat. The food is delicious and they have very friendly staff. The prices are low to be on Koh Tao, however it is a more expensive Island so don't expect it to be super cheap. Trust TripAdvisor, you need to go here if you are close by. (But don't make it a trip)

Really good quality thai food, dishes are very big. We ordered lots of different dishes and shared between the four of us. They only had beer or soft drinks available when we went which was a bit of a shame but the food definitely made our visit worth it

Food is really delicious, great combination of tastes, we visited this place three nights in a row, it's very busy place so once we had to wait about 40 minutes for free table but it's definitely worth waiting. Staff is very nice and friendly.

We had dinner an the food was great. One of the best Thai restaurants we tried in 2 weeks in Thailand. Variety of appetizers and main dishes: The massaman curry is very tasty. We were greatly surprised by the brownie: you should try it! The only downside was a relatively loud Techno Music which made it difficult to relax and... More

Found this place, when we where looking for another place, asked a guy in a dive shop, and he recommended Ying & Yang,. We where 6 people and had to wait a little for a table. Excellent staff, wich is very friendly, smiling and with good english skills. Expect waiting time for food, if they are busy. When you get... More

The best place on these corner of the island. Amazing green curry and papaya salad! Arrive early for dinner or skip lines and have a late lunch after an early dive.
