Lovely friendly staff, Vietnamese food. Recommended by our tour guide this Vietnamese restaurant is clean, the staff helpful and friendly and the food delicious. We have eaten in many places in our three week tour of Vietnam but this has to be one of the best.

Food here was delicious! We had a vegetable and rice noodle dish, chicken fried noodles with vegetables and mango sticky rice - flavours were fantastic!! Extremely satisfied - well worth a visit here! Wish the dish sizes were a little larger :)

Portion sizes are massive! Food extremely tasty and service very good. Prices much cheaper than other restaurants nearer the lake and in the rest of the city.

Ate there tonight and it was great! The service was excellent the entire time. They were clearly busy but did a great job! I had the sweet&sour chicken, a dish I've ordered many times in other places, and it was the best I've ever had. It's a little strange they don't serve wine by the glass but everything else was...

Went there on recommendation of our guide with a group of fellow travellers. Whilst I confess disappointed that all the clientele were westerners and not frequented by the locals which can be a reflection of quality or price, the staff were very friendly and the food excellent. We had the set menu VMD 750k say £9.00 at our post Brexit... More

Our guide recommended Yin & Yang to us when we asked him for advice on where to eat, we wanted good food but not high end dinning.
