It is very seldom that I give a negative review. I have been here many times, and it was always wonderful, until Wednesday night. We ordered spare ribs and onion pancakes first. The ribs were inedible. Tasted like they were reheated, no meat at all,...More

Quiet spacious and clean. Pleasent servers and not annoying or obsiequious. Gentle chinese music. The food is good for Santa Fe without outrageous spices and attractively served. The shopping mall it is connected with has some very interesting stores and there are other decorator stores...More

One of the best Chinese restaurants in Santa Fe, which is sorely lacking in this type of cuisine, Food is flavorful, and service attentive. Prices are in-line with others in the area. Do not expect real Chinese food here, not even San Fran style.

On our first visit to Yin Yang we were not disappointed. The place was very clean, the waitstaff was attentive, and the food was good. We got plenty of food on our plates.

Though I've eaten here for lunch on the weekends, the weekday lunchtime buffet is the winner here. A large selection of items is available, along with salads, soups and dessert items. You won't walk away from here hungry, and it's one of the few places...More
