Tried YY for the first time last night and it was amazing. Tried the stir fried spicy crab, pad thai with shrimp, chicken satay and delicious thai rice. Everything was spot on. Service was great and also bought home some yummy tom yum soup which i am going to try today. I hope they can deliver too. Definitely going back there again.

I have been going to YY for many years, this place and to the second one in Wudadao both. In addition to good traditional Thai food they have good craft beer also, the Tom Yum Soup is the best in Tianjin.

Yes it is the best thai in the city, but they are getting more and more expensive. Service is rude sometimes and the quality is not constant.

Still the best Thai

I like it because taste is similar with I tried in Thailand

I Dislike
So bad service. I had been there with my friends several times. But after yesterday, I don't want to go again even if food is good. We want to seat in non-smoking area beacuse someone is smoking. It's refused. When we want to add more dish.It's refused also. But new order is ok still at that time.(only 13:00).It's not closing time. During whole lunch, we didn't see any simle on waitress. Their mind is if you don't like, you can leave.

I was referred to YY's by a friend, another restaurant owner at that. It really hit the spot for Thai food, my friend and I really enjoyed the different types of dishes we chose, especially the shrimp cakes and soup. Service was great and the staff was friendly.

After all our food and two bottles of wine we left completely satisfied.

I Dislike
I really do not have any cons, maybe the tables were a little small and close together, but heck, makes more room to get more customers in.

We are new to Tianjin and this is exactly what we were after - Great Thai food, prompt service in a relaxed down to earth atmosphere. Good value also and a convenient central location just next to the Intl building.

I Dislike
Busy and a little too much smoke wafting about.

I cannot think of any place better to eat.
Just wish I had a YY Beer House in my home town:(((
I have brought many of Chinese my friends that have never heard of them here and they have become regulars.
The prices are great and the food is even better!!!
Never had a bad visit to YY since 2008! I go at least once a week! It is located near where I stay and always feel welcome there.
Outstanding Thai food at a very reasonable price!!!!!!

I Dislike
Kind of hard to find for the newcomer to Tianjin,on the back side of the International Building

Must make the reservation if you plan on getting a table at times, can become very busy at times.

I Like
- High quality, clean and surprisingly authentic Thai food.
- Really excellent seafood, the fish and crab dishes are amazing.
- Probably the best soup I have ever had, don't miss the Tomyamgoong
- Great beer and wine selection, with large Tiger beer only 15RMB.

I Dislike
- Pricey,and some of the cheaper wines are best left unordered (as always).
- A couple of their starter dishes (such as the stuffed chicken wings) are disappointing.

- Cozy atmosphere. I'd probably have complaints about the cramped nature of YYs in another city, but in Tianjin most places have no atmosphere at all, so it makes a nice change.
- Great food. I haven't had better Thai food than this outside Thailand.
- Easygoing and friendly staff.
- Good prices on beer, and reasonable overall.
- Nice city centre location.


I Dislike
I can't really think of anything major. I don't remember ever leaving feeling unhappy.

I like to try new places but the YY I love to go back to. It is not the most well kept building but still cosy. The staff is very nice and the food is excellent. I simply love YY.

I Dislike
The restaurant could use some renovations

Simply the most authentic Tai food in town. Variety of imported beers for everyone's taste. Good location. No problem with car parking. Affordable prices for all kinds of meals.

I Dislike
Service can be too slow sometimes. Usually too crowded. Best to make reservation in advance. Not too spacious. No fapiao offered.

YY Beer house is not limited to the beers, but also to their great Thai food (Curry, papaya salad are very good,...). What is already a good deal quality price on normal day becomes awesome for their wine testing day (1 Wednesday/month , maybe the 3rd one of the moth, to be checked), where you get the buffet plus a lot of good wines all you can eat all you can dring for 100 RMB. It really worth it.

I Dislike
As the other people, the restaurant is kindda small. It's ok on usual day (better reserve though), but it become really packed for their buffet sessions.

They have very savory curry,specially the yellow one is in a rich flavour.
The thai milk tea also deserves a try!

I Dislike
just hope the size of the rooms could be larger.when the rooms are full of people,I feel it's a little cramped and stuffy inside.
