    We are regulars here and the food is always fresh, tasty and very reasonably priced. Although when we booked, I did not see any special offers, when we arrived we were immedIately offered the specials which was a nice touch as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We will return.

    It was oue first trip to Yum Yum after hearing really good things. We were not disappointed! Truly delicious food and wonderful service- staff could not do enough for you. We the the starter platter for two (SO MUCH FOOD!) Had a main each (I can't recall the name, but the lightly battered chicken with cashews is incredible- sticky and sweet- have it with the coconut rice), and an amazing cocktail for desert. Overall, we found it a little on the pricey side, but definitely worth it for a treat!

    Lovely decor and romantic entrance and outdoor seating area however the food did not impress. We had the mixed sharing platter which consisted of overcooked parcels, dry chicken and no dipping sauce. Greasy and unappealing. The main, i had a tasty sea bass fillet which was a touch on the hot side but was fine with coconut rice. My partner had the chicken, ginger and lemon stirfry, which was dry with poor presentation.

    A fantastic atmosphere to enjoy your meal.Buzzing but not too noisy. The starters are enough to keep you going, Anything that was fried was crisp, hot but not oily.Duck spring rolls are epic.Soups are hot and spicy, just as they should be and the stir fried vegetables are beautiful. Do eat here you will enjoy the experience.

    Yum Yum's never fails. The food is excellent, with plenty of selection although they have now restricted the menu slightly for toptable guests however there is still alot of choice and you can go for the other options but you dont get the discount. The service is excellent. The restaurant is getting very popular and due to busyness, can get quite loud so dont expect a tranquil quiet meal but its great as the place has a nice buzz to it.

    Sat outside on the front terrace which had a lovely atmosphere and feels a world away from where it actually is. However the service was a bit slow and the staff had forgotton to bring the main courses and after waiting patiently we had to chase the waiter who had no idea we had food coming. Furthermore, the tofu in our curry had a very sour taste and had obviously gone off (I cook a lot of fresh tofu at home so I know the difference in taste) but the waiter seemed to think that that is how tofu tastes. The satay chicken was dry and over cooked but there were a few dishes worth the wait (lamb massaman was very good) but overall I was sadly disappointed. Given the pricey dishes I didn't think it was worth it and will not be returning.

    This is one of the best Thai restaurants around. I travelled from Bickley in Kent to eat here. The range is amazing and everything is so delicious there are no duds on the menu. The only thing I'd say is that I am left 'comatose' afterwards because I always eat too much. Yum yum!

    The staff were attentive and knew the menu very well. They were able to make suggestions and also accommodate their menu. I wanted a noodle soup prawns as opposed to chicken - rather than say no, they checked with the Chef and voila - I had my prawn noodle soup. Cocktails were fantastic and the wine selection was fab.

    Yum Yum's is a beautiful and stylish space, decorated with exotic flowers and goldfish. Its the sort of place where you might want to dress up and have a cocktail before dining, and luckily they have a good range. I had an intense "Thai silk", my wife had a long fruity rum based thing which went down well too. The food is good, not too expensive, nothing terrific mind. Good standard thai fare, not too spicy. So its a good place to impress the in-laws perhaps, but maybe not the girlfriend, its too spacious, in no way intimate. Its good for children too, they don't mind kids wandering around, and they were kid enough to do a bowl of plain noodles for our fussiest.

    If you like Thai food then this is the place for you. Everything from the food to the setting of the place was very nice. The food is not expensive and the drinks are reasonably priced as well. I think from 5pm to 7pm is happy hour so you get 2 4 1 cocktails. You can also choose to have drinks before you start ordering food at the front of the restaurant. I had prawn dumplings for starters and pad thai noodles for my main which was very nice. The service was fast considering it how busy it got. I don't have a bad word to say about this place. If you want to have a romantic meal or or have a birthday meal there, then it's the place for you. Try it out.

    We have been going to Yum Yum for a few years now on and off as its the first place we think of when we want to go out and eat a Thai meal. Its always been a special treat to go and eat there. We have found the food consistently good and the service is warm and friendly. Its a lovely Thai Oasis, in the middle of dreary Stoke Newington and has definitely earned its place as a family favourite.

    Yum Yum keep changing the Toptable offer that it is no longer worth it. Previously 50% off offers allowed most seafood items. This has now changed. No Seafood items are allowed on the offer. And given the service charge is calculated on the gross amount its not even 30% off. Despite being not very full we were given a poor table in the corner. The wine wasn't chilled properly and the food was very perfunctory and overpriced. We've been coming here regularly for over 20 years on the basis of very pleasant decor and good food at a reasonable price but we won't be rushing back after this experience. Standards in London have improved over the last 20 years and It seems that Yum Yum is now trading on its reputation.

    This restaurant has seriously gone downhill. Service was friendly and attentive, however the food was very poor. We ordered a mixed starter and the sauce arrived with a film of skin on two of them as if it had been sitting there for weeks. Seabass was disappointing, drenched in sauce! Noodles were less than average however the duck was nice. Overall a badly overpriced experience where the food quality does not even match the local takeaway! We will not be eating here again unless standards improve.
