Good Thai / Asian fusion. Service was exceptional. The place was really busy and they forgot one of the starters. Joe, our waiter, then offered a free drink to my wife and friend. Wife and friend very happy!

Been meaning to come here since it first opened finally made it on saturday evening . We were not one bit disappointed food was delicious with some stand out dishes. Ambience was lively but not too noisy and service very friendly.Favourite dishes would be hard to choose really but the Pad Thai and the Sea Food Tom Yum Paella were amazing.So happy its in our neighbourhood.

I booked as I saw the really positive reviews. There was a bit of confusion on where they should seat me and ended up seating myself and my friend (who arrived a bit later) at different tables, although we were on the same booking.
The waiter was enthusiastic and a bit pushy, trying all of the time to upsell us on dishes and extras. He did a good job of proposing combinations of meats and curry sauces though and was trying very hard.
The food - I ordered the Yellow Curry with Chicken and Jasmine rice which was not good at all - the turmeric completely overpowered the sauce. Additionally there was hardly any chicken in the sauce, which mainly consisted of potatoes and bamboo shoots. My friend had the Panang curry which she said was very tasty, although it also had very little chicken.
This seemed like a nice restaurant and based on reviews, I think I ordered badly, but overall the prices are very high for what you get. I am really disappointed as the concept had potential.

We took my teenage children there for their birthdays. The waiter and proprietor couldn’t have been kinder or more attentive. The food was excellent. The dim sum style starters were terrific, as were the main courses (although the paella inspired rice dish didn’t quite work). The organisation of the menu could be more user-friendly but overall, very highly recommended.

Nice addition to Putney, which needed another good Thai restaraunt. Some really interesting and rather tasty dishes and fabulous decor give it the wow factor, staff very smiley and courteous. Didn't give 5 stars due to the young waitress who served us who forgot our wine order twice and then after our food had been cleared away just brushed the dropped food bits off the table right onto the floor ! where we would have to walk through it, never seen that before! Price was high for some of the dishes, but it was good quality. There was another table of 10-12 people being really loud and did spoil our evening due them screaming and shouting at some points during our meal. Staff could have done more to subdue this.

What an unexpected culinary surprise and great hospitality! Central London quality and countryside friendliness in East Putney just next to the Tube exit. The food was delicious. Especially the starters and the curry are worth a try. The chef is right from Dubai and has brought some very interesting fusion of India and Thailand to London. Impressed with the service, the warm welcome and the great atmosphere. Refreshingly quiet compared to the bars around, so good for a nice dinner together. Try the Watermelon Sangria! Eye Opening!
This location also has a meditation room, some separate facilities for a larger group and offers BBQ and brunch in the weekends (waiting for the emails on that here). Thanks for the evening, Michael and Jacqui.

This place is the epitome of style over substance. While the service is fair and the ambience hints of class, the food is way way over priced for the quality.

2nd time at at Yum Sa and once again had a fantastic experience.
Food is amazing, so well presented and accomodating to any taste. It's Thai god but with a twist so not too spicy and beautifully cooked. Accomodating any taste if required.
Staff is lovely, service impeccable.

Highly recommend this restaurant, a must go in Putney to spend quality time with quality food.

Third visit to Yum Sa, and as fantastic as the first two trips. Possibly favourite place in Putney now and amongst favourite Thai restaurants generally. The menu is quite small, and definitely not your standard Thai fare. Every dish has been delicious and some downright special. The open kitchen is fun to watch, and the service has always been efficient and particularly friendly. Possibly not that inviting from the outside (base of a modern tower block opposite East Putney Station) but well worth a visit. It's clear that a lot of design, effort, thought and money has gone into making this place come to life!

Tried this place last minute just on the off chance.
The food selection looks amazing, but sadly the food falls short on occasion.
Visually the food rates 9/10 but taste wise it's hit or miss and could be anywhere between a 3 and a 8/10.
Worth a visit, but I wouldn't be rushing back.

We had a fantastic brunch served by the most welcoming staff, helpful and making sure you are enjoying the moment.
The owner was around as well and made sure every guest was satisfied, if you'd like something different not a problem, any request is taken with a smile.

The brunch is just amazing, the layout of food incredible, freshly cooked by talented chefs and you just ask for more till you have enough! All is served in beautiful plates, so much attention has been put into every details, you are in for a treat.

I can't wait to go back again, this is a gem offering a very unique experience for your taste buds in a beautiful restaurant and the service is worth a five star hotel.

Thank you Yum Sa team
