    Ok, so if you're on this page you've probably seen the "50% off food" that is clearly on their site. The restaurant however claim to have no knowledge of this. I asked the waiter who asked the manager, the manager came over and very swiftly told us they don't do it before walking away. We had to ask the poor waiter to go and get them again so we could ask why. "I'll come talk to you in a minute" we were told, 15 minutes later and we send the waiter to find the manager again. He reluctantly rolls up to our now starving table and tells us the offer doesn't exist, refuses to answer questions etc. we received no apology and were made to feel like we were ripping the restaurant off!
    The food- the mains were good, small portions but good quality. The fruit salad with fish sauce starter was the worst thing I've ever tasted, the rest was good but definite 2 stars knocked down for rudeness

    Yum Yum is... well, the joke is too easy there, but yes, it's pretty delicious.

    I didn't actually come here for food, so I can't speak about that, but the cocktails? Man, these cocktails are phenomenal. Well prepared, a long list of interesting concoctions (I got one with gin and fresh grapes called The Lonely Tree) and strong.  Just the way I like it.

    The atmosphere is sleek and chic, mood lit to the point of maybe being a little too dark, but with comfortable seats, even a nice area around the corner from the entrance for drinking only. They did play jungle sounds instead of music, which was a little strange, but when I stopped focusing on it, it actually was kind of relaxing.

    Cocktails run about £7/£8 a pop. I'd come back for them any day. Next time I might even try the food.

    5 stars for the beautiful decor and ambiance
    2 stars  for the slow and unfriendly service
    2 stars for the so so food. Nothing with ever compare to authentic Thai cuisine, but there are better and more reasonable Thai restaurants in London. Food was either extremely bland or ridiculously sweet. So beautiful but so disappointing!!

    Yum Yum indeed!
    Situated on high street in quaint Stoke Newington, is the best Thai restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. It appears that Gordon Ramsay concurs!

    The atmosphere is sexy and exotic, the food delightful and perfectly seasoned, and artfully presented. We choose to sit  "Asian style"on the floor with large cushions and generally order mass quantities of different items to share that are spicy, hot, sweet and salty!.Some of the highlights are the  Thai green curry cooked with king prawns, coconut milk and fresh Thai herbs, Chicken stir-fried with ginger, onions and black mushrooms,lemon grass chicken fresh black peppercorns, coriander roots, garlic, coconut milk & soya sauce & baked to perfection! The starter spring rolls and soft shell crab are excellent. After several bottles of wine, you tend to forget what you are eating and enjoy the combinations of various flavours and aromas as they hit your palate!

    Went here for New Year's Eve. Waited 45 mins for a table that we'd booked in advance. When food arrived it was luke-warm, prawns were overcooked and weren't deveined, and tempura was essentially scampi. Easily the worst Thai I've ever been to, and I won't be back.

    This place is one of the best Thai restaurants I've been to in any western country.  The ambiance is amazing and the food is even better.

    I'm sure you can find a ton of descriptions here to get a feel for the food, but I'll leave it at this... if you are in the area, don't think twice, just go now!

    I've heard a lot of people raving on about  Yum Yums, so I decided to give them a call and tried to book a table only to be told, that they were fully booked.
    However there was something about the person on the other end of the phone, that told me this was not completely true.

    So we jumped in the car and hot footed it down to Yum Yums, and surprise surprise they miraculously had space for us.

    Before being seated we indulged in some pre dinner cocktails, I had "Rosy Cheeks" and the bar man wrote my name in my cocktail and put flowers (made with red sauce)  in it. I must admit I was truly impressed!

    The staff were very friendly they had good knowledge of what the dishes on the menu were, and when we finally placed our order. I suddenly decided I wanted to change the seasoned chicken balls, for a Yum Yum platter.

    I wasn't overly impressed with the Yum Yum platter it seemed like a bit of a rip off, as there were only a few meaty nibbles in there like the satay chicken, and some other little bits but the majority of it was fried vegetables that we did not eat. However the chicken prawn toast and the vegetable spring rolls were all delicious, and cooked to perfection.

    For our main course we had fried rice with chicken, and chicken and ginger noodles with chillies. The food was really tasty and well cooked, however for the price we paid the portions could have been a little bit bigger. Also they should warn people about the intensity of the chillies contained in the dishes, as I chewed a chilli and couldn't stop coughing, my eyes were watering and everything, and this is coming from someone who loves to eat scotch bonnet peppers!

    But overall Yums Yums is a nice restaurant the decor is really nice, it's got a great atmosphere however I think it's a little bit on the pricey side, but I would definitely visit again.

    Arrrrrgh! I was so angry at Gordon Ramsay last night. Watching the F word he was looking for the best Thai food in Britain and he chose Yum Yums as on of them. As I sit there yelling at the TV, to the terror of my flat mates, I could think off the top of my head of 2 Thai spots that i have had withing walking distance of that place that whoops its arse.

    Yes the building is beautiful and the presentation of the food is fantastic but the food is greasy, over fried, under seasoned and just disappointing. I'm not going to 1 star this place as it's so worth a one off visit for the experience, the building was a hospital for the mentally disturbed and is a listed building. Sorry Yum Yums, not so yum yums for me.

    Yum Yum is mas-siiiiiiffff and can accommodate a crazy number of people. Take the maximum people you can fit in a mini and add the number of people you can get on a double decker, then multiply it by the number of sweaty bodies crushed on a rush-hour Central line tube carriage. This place is BIG - bigger than Tom Hanks in Big combined with a Big Mac to the power of the Notorious B.I.G.. .You get me?

    On this particular Saturday night it was full of birthday parties that seated about 30 people per table, one of which I was part of.  There seemed to be a more intimate area at the back of the restaurant where smaller parties sit on cushions on the floor.  Additionally there's a cocktail lounge area as you walk in with happy hour before 7.30pm (I think)  - only the place was rammed and I was queuing so long that the hour was up by the time I was served. By the downstairs loos, there also appeared to be a secret drinking lounge area- complete with a man on the door to prevent entry to rampant toilet seekers.

    I was completely utterly under the grip of an evil deathly cold, and was trying hard to not sneeze on my companions. I shouldn't have been out at all, and perhaps wouldn't have made the effort had I know there would be 29 people at dinner to take my place (gripe over!).

    So dosed up on three times the legal limit of lemsip, I might not have been in the best frame of mind to judge everything with a clear head. However it seemed to be me that the place was way too large and busy for my liking and the staff were clearly overworked. It was hard to attract their attention.

    As our party was also large for ease we ordered the set menus. Although we received plenty of food, the assortment of starters in our 'yum yum platter' were all deep fried and pretty homogenous.

    For mains the vegetarian set menu we ordered came with Thai red curry with vegetables, Sautéed aubergines, Mixed vegetables and rice. I did like the fact that the vegetables weren't overcooked and were very crisp. It was nice enough, but all pretty standard.

    The set menu was definitely overpriced at £22 - £26. If you want to forgo to the funkily lit decor, then you can get a more varied meal at many of the other Thai restaurants across the capital. For instance £12 at the unglamorous Charlie Wrights in Hoxton gets you similar but much better value fayre. yelp.co.uk/biz/charlie-w…

    In summary - pleasant food but not particularly spectacular. Let's go to the smaller less dolled up Thai pub down the road tonight luv?

    East Is East

    There are two reasons that make me leave Southside and venture across the border to the East.  One is seeing friends and two is my stomach.

    When Lolo suggested we meet up at Yum Yum I was little Ms Smiley Face. Their building is gorgeous and every time I cross the threshold into their mini courtyard, complete with buddha guarding a small fountain, while sandwiched between two grass roofed huts; I feel transported away from everything that lies beyond their walls.

    Once inside the large welcoming space is punctuated by dark wood furniture, bamboo rolled hanging lights and a nice breakout dinning area that caters for large groups (there is a low level seating area at the back which is fun, but not advisable if you don't like pdos (public displays of shoelessness!).There is also a more general dining space and a kick arse bar.

    On the food front expect fairly standard Thai dishes,well cooked and well presented. Their spring rolls were excellent, light crispy pastry wrapped around gently blanched vegetables, paired with a sweet chilli sauce.

    The fish cakes were tasty but a little heavy on the coriander,blunting the usual flavour of the dish. My main chicken pad thai arrived with a side order of crushed peanuts,allowing me to determine just how much I wanted on my dish.

    What did surprise me was the size of my plate.Clearly portion control has taken a hold at Yum Yum, because the last time I ate there, my serving was so large I had to get a doggy bag !

    Darned recession !!

    I liked this place, the building looks great from the outside it set back off the pavement with a nice little forecourt with outdoor seating.

    Inside its subtly lit and you can never seem to see the end of the expansive restaurant. I had the Green Curry and it tasted very fresh with the right balance in spices and coconut milk.

    Only problem is i wouldnt go out of my way to get here again, but if i were in the area you would definitely find me here.

    Beautiful interior--dark, elegant, and well appointed.  Even on a busy weekend night, there's enough tables to go around that you won't need a reservation unless you have a large party.  Besides a bar area, there's regular tables plus tables recessed into the floor where you'll have to take your shoes off.  Once seated there, your shoes are whisked away and you'll have to rely on the possibly much too large or too tight slippers for getting to the downstairs ladies' room.  Tread carefully; the floors are slippery.

    The curries and pad thai we ordered were all good and the ingredients tasted fresh.  Sadly, the portions were tiny--definitely plan to order an app and dessert or consider splitting three entrees between two people.  The coconut rice was gorgeous as were the many interesting cocktails on the menu.  The creme brulee was lovely with a nice crust and the lemongrass flavor was just pronounced enough without being overpowering.  The servers were uniformly sweet and helpful.

    I agree with Lizzie G on Yum Yums, I also saw it on Gordon Ramsey's TV show: 'The F word'  (the show where 2 restaurants of the same cuisine have a cook off for title of the best in Britian of that cuisine). Needless to say the other Thai restaurant in the competition beat Yum Yum's ( a tiny little place somewhere out of London, can't remember where) and I was happy with the result.
    Yum Yums is a bit over rated but it has been in the area for quite some time, so I guess it's a stable, solid & reliable restaurant for the locals.
    The food is so so, tiny portions, nothing spectacular (pretty westernised Thai food, spices played down etc) and pretty expensive.
    The building is beautiful, cocktails aren't bad either, which is where it steps up a mark.

    It took me a few weeks of walking past YumYum before I plucked up enough courage to walk through its entrance. It looks ridiculous- a grand Thai manor house in the midst of Hackney. But don't be put off by the ridiculous fountain and kitsch beach huts in the courtyard; once you get inside the restaurant, it is a completely different experience. With its dark teak walls and sunken tables, the restaurant is surprisingly elegant. The owner told me that it is the largest Thai restaurant in Europe, and I believe him- it is huge, with two floors (one is a bar and private dining room downstairs)

    They run an excellent happy hour, with half price cocktails before 7pm and often run deals with dining websites which makes their already affordable menu even cheaper. I recently signed up for a membership card with the restaurant and I now get special deals and discounts sent through to me by email. The set menus are quite expensive for dinner (over 23 per person) but they give you an incredible amount of food. For real value though, go for their express lunch- 7.95 for a starter, main course and rice or 5.95 for a main course and rice.We go at least once a week and it never disappoints.

    Yum Yum does not look like your average Thai restaurant- the listed building is a great addition to the many restaurants in Stoke Newington. With a lovely courtyard and even a fountain- you will find it difficult to believe that you're still in North London and the country.

    Once you have got over the splendour of the exterior be prepared to marvel at the very good Thai food. I have been to Yum Yum many times (and even used to go the old building on Church Street) and have never been disappointed with the food. The red thai chicken curry is great if you love your food spicy and the pad thai is also one of my favourite Yum Yum dishes.

    One of the best things about Yum Yum is the happy hour before 7pm so you can get drink your cocktails for half price. I always try to get there for happy hour so I can enjoy a Mojito  (or two!) with dinner.

    Yum Yum is a great venue for any celebration and the staff are always ver attentive and willing to explain anything on the menu. Yum Yum is certainly yummy!

    What a grand place. I'm not just talking about the courtyard with the fountain, and I'm not just talking about the sheer size of the place either. I'm also talking about the delicious food on offer.

    I am quite the connoisseur when it comes to Thai curries. I have to say that as they are probably one of my most favourite things ever, it is a shame that it can be hard to find a good one in London. Yum Yum, I have to say, makes one of the best Lamb Massaman curries in London. It is around 10 pounds but definitely worth it.

    Another really exciting thing is the fact that they deliver to your home. If you don't have a copy of the menu, check out their website.

    I loved this restaurant when it was located on Stoke Newington Church Street, it was just around the corner from me and very handy for a top-notch takeaway. Now it's moved on to the High Street, it's really not that much further away, but it seems like it. It's in a far more imposing building and very swish indeed.

    When I did try to get a takeaway from the new premises, I couldn't get through it was so busy, so I had to walk round and order. There then followed a long wait in the bar, where I felt quite out of place. I ordered a cocktail, but still felt like a fish out of water. The prices had shot up too. Probably the most expensive takeaway I've ever ordered. They're really trading on their reputation now. I'll stick to Lemongrass for my thai food now.

    Nice place for a special occasion though. And I dropped in with a friend for a late night cocktail this summer. We had fun chatting to the barmen who clearly know their stuff when it comes to mixing a drink and are happy to recommend one to suit your taste.

    I ate at Yumyum twice during my stay in London -- once as a sit-down lunch, and the second time as take-out. I was very impressed with the food in both circumstances, with only a minor critique or two to offer.

    The interior of Yumyum is over-the-top in the best possible way; every inch of the restaurant is dripping in Thai detail and opulence; the food likewise was authentic and excellent. Dishes such as mushroom tofu with basil, sauteed eggplant (aubergine), and spring rolls with delicately spiced curry fillings impressed and satisfied me.

    Non-British visitors should take note that cultural tastes and standards may render "spicy" ratings a little challenging to predict/decipher. My British friend felt that dishes here were "too spicy" while I felt they were "not spicy enough." A discussion with your waiter may be in order prior to ordering.

    I was not impressed with the fresh spring rolls; I found their rice exteriors too chewy; similarly I did not enjoy the hard-cabbage interior -- a softer lettuce would make a better choice of vegetable. However, the remaining dishes I ordered met with 100% satisfaction.

    Been here once before and was ok, gave it another shot and it was awful!

    Staff were rude and unhelpful.
    Food and drink orders were messed up.
    They were funny about redeeming our Top Table offer.
    Portion sizes of the mains were tiny (thought they'd given me the side dish by mistake).

    It's such a shame that it was a bad visit on so many counts as this could be the great Thai-restaurant-on-my-doorstep that I would relish.

    It's a pity that fabulous decor and poor service now puts them firmly in the "all style and no substance" category.

    I went here last night as Top Table have a 30% offer on at the moment and it's a local restaurant so a good excuse to try it.

    Given all the fuss, it was only okay. It's very grand to look at and nicely decorated, but the food was pretty average. We had a phad thai and a green curry. It didn't make me feel compelled to return.

    Pretty expensive, even with the discount. Worth noting though, the very good cocktails are 1/2 price from 5 - 7.30.

    It is rare I am truly captivated by Thai food in a restaurant but Yum Yum has made me rethink how I look at Thai food.

    I absolutely love food from Thailand but have found a lot of the stuff you get here in the UK is a bit run of the mill. It can sometimes make you feel a bit like once you've had one pad thai you'be had them all...same can be said of green curry et al.

    But Yum Yum really blew me away. It's in a great location, is absolutely stunning on the inside and there wasn't a lobster tank this time around so I got to have a wonderful meal with my beloved uninterrupted by cannibalistic lobsters. (If you don't get where I am coming from see my review I wrote on here about Pattersons).

    We had some dim sum to start, then I opted for some beef with long beans which came with lots of chilli. My beloved had scallops with chilli and thai basil and we shared some coconut rice and had a dish of morning glory which was cooked with blackbeans, garlic and chilli.

    To say it was amazing isn't doing it justice. I want to go back as the food was so good. I also liked that the menu was large, varied and I do believe there is something for everyone on there. They didn't go too crazy with the chilli either so you weren't left with your tonsils on fire or anything like that.

    The cocktail menu is well worth abusing, I mean, sampling. The delicate balances of slightly unusual ingredients all worked and was at a rather reasonable price too.

    For dessert we shared a coconut crusted banana fritter which came with coconut ice cream and a palm sugar biscuit. It was divine and well worth ordering.

    I can't wait to go back and sample more stuff from that menu as it had a lovely balance of everything and was reasonable. Most expensive main was around £14 and they had a good selection of set menus too.

    I suggest you go there ready for a food marathon as your taste buds will want to do a culinary pentathlon (well mine did anyway)

    Went here for a birthday treat yesterday and completely loved it! Service was good but not intrusive and the food was delicious  can completely recommend the lamb massuman curry and the cocktails.
    We sat at one of the tables where you take your shoes off  I can recommend this as it was slightly less busy than the main restaurant area and it was a bit different. I'll definitely be going back here and bringing friends with me  it felt like the sort of place you would want to go to for a treat or a special occasion.

    The original yum yum has moved to fancier quarters on Stoke Newington High Street creating a grand dining experience. The food is still nice with a lot of meat and veggie options. The new restaurant has a raised shoe-free seating area for a different experience, a cocktail bar and stylish decor. The staff are friendly and the service is good.
    Just if anyone need it - the new address of yum yum is:
    183-187 Stoke Newington High St
    London, N16 0LH

    Just went again recently and the visit confirmed how good this place is. We were a large group who shared all our dishes and they were all superb. Green curry, pad thai and prawn curry were my favourites. The pre-dinner cocktail was absolutely delicious and I'm thinking I will have to go back for more!! The service of our 15 strong group was good and very consistent!

    I love this place, even more after it moved from its original location around the corner on Church Street a couple of years ago.

    My boyfriend often gets upset at me because I compare SE Asian food available in London unfavourabley to that in Australia or indeed from my travels around the place as a young backpacker. Often halfway through a meal I'll go it was better in Brisbane and he'll sigh with frustration.

    This NEVER happens at Yum Yums! The food here is stunning, from the Pad Thai to the Mussellman curries. The decor is lovely too, a bit flowery and pink for the man in my life, but most people are fine with that kind of thing! The cocktails are delish! The service is wonderful from beginning to end, and we've never had cause to complain.

    This is a great place to bring a group of friends for a meal, just be sure to book first!

    Chnged location from a few years ago when it used to be in a tiny and intimate venue round the corner on Church st. The food is still very good and the restaurant now is indeed grand- but the prices like the change in location, are now geared more towards the grander scale, although not preposterously so.
    Still one of the best places in Stokey, and defo the best Thai. Green Thai curry is awesome here!
    Tip- for a cheaper option is Lemongrass 2 minutes walk around the corner on church st.

    Yum Yum moved from their old location on Stoke Newington Church Street a while back, and now resides on Stoke Newington High Street. The building is lovely old Georgian property, which has really given the restaurant a much swankier feel. Inside, the decor and mood is just perfect. And you gotta love sitting in sunken chairs like that. Always fun.

    Food is as good as it always was, great selection of yummy thai food. Prices are high, but as I always say - book through toptable for a special offer and you will get all of the good stuff above plus that warm thrifty feeling.

    I've not been back here for a while as I tend to agree with the people below who say that it is too expensive for Thai food that is, while perfectly good, not outstanding. It's almost like the food doesn't quite live up to the extraordinary surroundings.

    This review however is of their weekday lunch time special, two courses for 8 quid, which is a different matter and something I'd recommend especially if, like me, you've got a stinking head cold. There's a pretty good selection of meaty and veggie things on the lunch menu but I went straight for the Tom Yum Gai - basically the hot, sour soup but done as a main course with noodles and chicken. It worked a treat on my mucus-filled passages and tasted great and the place is an oasis of calm and quiet away from the madness of Stokey High Street on a Friday afternoon.

    The coctails in here are well made though the bar staff certainly didn't seem in a hurry to serve you but in happy hour these were half price, around £3.50 and were very good value.

    I was somewhat disappointed by the yum yum platter to start, it seemed overly greasy with most of it being deep fried.

    The main courses however were well cooked and tasty, the setting and ambience of the restaurant was nice overall and it was a pleasant experience. A little overpriced but not massively for London.

    My partner and I visited Yum Yum's on February 13, so as you can imagine it was a very busy service. But I loved it here... I definitely want to go back when it is less busy.

    Our waiter was very attentive and although the food took a while to come, it was very tasty when it did! I also loved the little rice holders, very lovely addition to the ambience of the place as a whole. An especially delicious dish is a duck dish...

    I tried to get a table here once and was not able to as it was full...
    I regularly get take out from here though and the food is fantastic, as well as great value for money considering the huge portion sizes.
    Some of the best Thai food I've had outside of Thailand.

    This is one of the two best Thai restaurants in London.  Need I say more?

    Yum Yum used to be my local Thai takeaway place, and I loved it. With a gorgeous facade/courtyard out the front (complete with fountain), the few times I ate there were really lovely - almost felt like you were out of the walls on the city!  Yum Yum does fresh, funky Thai, with a great range of soups, salads and mains.  The prices are really reasonable too - the main are all well under a tenner and dishes are pretty generous too!

    I don't understand the appeal of this place. It's basically an english version of thai food, too many strong flavours and sauces. The interior is very nice, with cushioned areas, nice tables but it always makes me think I should check under the plate for bits of old food. Much better when it was on church street.

    This is a firm favourite of ours. When we lived in the area we would go regularly, now that we're back in South Africa, it's a bit harder. The ambience is great and the food is excellent value for money. Don't go without trying the coconut rice!

    This is a lovely place to go out for a thai in our restaurant-tastic little part of london. Although for a casual meal you might try one of the local pubs that serves perfectly servicable thai, if you're dining proper then it's here or lemongrass. Whilst i think the food at lemongrass is ever so slightly better, this place is just great if you're wanting the whole experience. Whilst you wait for your table to be prepared (deliberate tactic or just because the place is often full?!) you might try one of the very brilliant margueritas or other cocktails at the stylish bar.
    Then one of the ever-friendly and attentive staff will whisk you to the tables - some of which are those brilliant sunken ones where you can either get your feet right under the table or perch on the edge on the cushions provided. You have to take your shoes off and everything!
    The food is just lovely and always beautifully presented with flowers and cut out vegetable shapes and the like, and there's also a mouthwatering selection of desserts.

    The food is good and the service is great overall. The staff are really friendly, although we did have to wait about half an hour for the bill! Portions are a good size and there's a nice raised area where you eat with your shoes off. There is also some outdoor seating but i would advise booking this as there's not much space. Deffo worth a visit.
