We had the fixed price dinner with a great collection of choices. We started with fresh spring rolls made at the table. This was followed by chicken, pork, shrimp and book Chou with noodles or rice. Finished with fresh watermelon, pineapple and mango. Wash it down with Hanoi beer and life is good...really good.

All the dishes reflect the Vietnamese cuisine and is served family style where you share from one dish. The service was prompt and the... More

Came here as group of 16. Really good food and excellent service. Well laid out with larger groups using the upstairs while the down stairs was used by smaller groups and locals.

The rating given here takes into account the fact that its in the Old quarter of Hanoi where standards are err! a little different than usual. A rating similar to my scaling system for Britain would be a 3 which is still pretty good.and is low only for the fact that portion sizes especially the meat is pretty minimal. That... More

For six people at the table, we had eight dishes. It was like we were gobbling up everything on the menu! But there was so much more to choose from. And each dish had its own distinct taste. This is down-home cooking with a sparkle for the taste buds. If I had to fond a suitable adjective, I'd say: "YUMMY!"

Yin & Yang was recommended by a local and proved to be a very good choice. We had the five course set menu which cost less than $15 and was delicious. The service was excellent - friendly and efficient. Cocktails excellent too and a good price. The restaurant is fairly small and popular, so do book if you plan to... More

We loved the food here. Pork is sweet and succulent. Its a busy place in the night. So it can be a tight fit in the night. It was right next to our hotel La Suite. We loved the place. I think college kids are the servers in this restaurant so we left a handsome tip as well. This restaurant... More

Went here with the bf as we wanted a nice meal for our last meal in Hanoi. We had a lovely experience. The food was delicious and prices were correct. Service was excellent. Would recommend if you are looking for a cute, quiet restaurant in the center of Hanoi.

Thank Deebeex
