Overall a good experience.

This bar specializes in Thai and Indian food. The menu offers a great selection at very affordable prices. We love Thai food and this was some of the best we could remember. The presentation was beautiful too. We had eaten two nights earlier at Oh Lala (also owned by George), where we learned about Yum Yum while speaking with the Maitre de. We were again amazed at the excellent service and the way that the wait staff worked so well together. This was consistent with the food and service we had received at Oh Lala, and were happy we chose to go there while we were on vacation in Mexico. The ambiance is fun. The glass-walled restaurant sits on the street corner and great for watching the street activity during your meal. We learned the owner was soon opening a French & Portuguese next door. Given what we experienced at Yum Yum and Oh Lala, the new place is sure to be a winner as well.

Some of the best Thai food we’ve ever had! The servers are also wonderful, as is the ambience - love the beautiful wood work everywhere. We loved this place so much that we came back 4 more times during our 1-week stay in Playa!

With all the hoopla about the place we were very excited to try it. We live in Playa for the winter and have wanting to try this place. There were four of us and none of us thought it was anything special. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. I hate to say this but we are at Babe´s last night and the food was excellent for half the price.

The service was excellent. Staffs are friendly and polite and all speak English. We had pad thai, salad, Tom yum goong and Thai curry, they are all good though I can't say that they are authentic. And the amount is small. It's a bit pricy but the ambiance is great: decoration and table wares are fashionable. I recommend it for a date if your date is not an Asian food expert.

Wonderful staff as usual at a restaurant by George, like Oh Lala. Luigi & Amelie d’Argen were gracious and the food delicious. We always enjoy a meal at Oh Lala and were happy to find the same wonderful quality And kind service at Yum Yum.

It was a nice restaurant, but the food just wasn't that good. My pad Thai was ok, certainly not one of the best one I have eaten. My husband's Indian curry was bland and the amount of rice that came with it was ridiculously small. If you're too cheap to give a full cup of rice, then I don't know what else we can expect. No thanks.

Amazingly good and clean tasting flavors. The meat is a little overdone in the vindaloo so I recommend the Tom yum soup and papaya salad as well as the sampler appetizer. The cocktails were great. Most were a bit too sweet but adding sparkling water made them perfect. Another was presented in a container with wood smoke and was by far the best drink. Was called something similar to la bido or something. And we got mezcal that came with orange slices, Spivey salt and grasshoppers. Awesome experience and sitting outside.

Dined here for the 1st time, but have frequented Oh LaLa by George and knew that Yum Yum by George would be fabulous! Everything was amazing from the moment we were greeted until our departure! The smokey drink was an experience I'll always remember and looking forward to going back again for it! Every bite of the chicken spring rolls and curry was delicious! I only wished that I went with more than one friend so that I could try more things...next time, I'll go with a group. Also, it would be great if they post their menu on their FACEBOOK page so that people could get prepared and excited about what they will order.

George, once again has “hit it out of the park”. The food and service were great. We had Pad Thai, Spring Rolls and Sticky Rice ( for dessert). Wow, was it all good!!! The restaurant is on a busy corner and we chose to sit outside. There were many cars and trucks going by but to be honest, the food and service were both sooo good, we hardly noticed. If they have the AC on, I would recommend eating inside for a quieter dining experience. Thai and Indian cuisine is the featured menu. We had a gorgeous breeze when we ate outside during a spectacular week of weather in Playa. Stay tuned for a new restaurant by George and his lovely wife coming in a few months. Belamonte, I think! Portuguese and French with a little live music too!!!!
