A word from Yum Yum
YumYum is an award winning Thai restaurant based in beautifully designed new premises in a grade 2 listed building. Our extensive menu is strictly classical Thai and we have won numerous awards for our food. Aside from that we have deliciously decadent desserts with a Thai twist and an exceptional cocktail list including alcoholic ice teas. You can enjoy all of this at lunchtimes or in the evenings and all day at the weekend in our 200 seat restaurant which features a wooden Thai house, a sunken seating area, a dining room, a lounge bar. Al fresco dining in the garden is also available during the warmer months.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best Thai restaurant in London: fantastic decor, sublime authentic food, fully-satisfying portion sizes, decent prizes, great cocktails. Once tried, forever adopted."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Food quality and taste is very good. I love the papaya salad for starters. A bit expensive for the area but still worth a try"
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Lovely chic interior but very bland food, which is something to say for something coming out of Thailand! I would not go again as I love Thai food and this was the least interesting I have ever had- not worth the money, which is a shame as the decor is beautiful."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Invited three friends to celebrate birthdays so the restaurant had to suit all of our tastes. The food was excellent as always, the atmosphere warm and inviting and the final bill was very reasonable. The one downside: the wait before we were placed at our reserved table was too long - and this is not the first time this has happened. I wonder if it is to encourage clients to start drinking at the bar? If this were to happen again I would lose my enthusiasm for the restaurant..."

  • "YumYums always delivers great food, great cocktails and great service. I have never had a bad meal and always return. Great value especially if you can get a special offer."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 23/03/2014
  • "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."

  • "If you haven't been to yum yums then you really should. Cocktails are incredible and the lamb masaman curry is great!"
    dined on 25/09/2013
  • "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."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "Great restaurant, brilliant staff (Sue?) and never lets us down for group occasion bookings. Great value, wonderful cocktails and lovely food. Loads of choice on the menus, never end up finishing our orders as portions are large! Very tasty. Best Prik Nam Plah in London....Need I say more?"
    dined on 31/10/2013
  • "My booking was on a Saturday evening. It was busy but the bar was Inadequately staffed. The barman failed to acknowledge our presence and subsequently served another patron. Our table was late. service was slow but 'smiley'. The drinks arrived at the 3rd attempt. The mains took even longer. I will not be coming back to this restaurant. Yum Yum's is popular, which is why it was so packed. Then again, one could argue that the Victoria Line is popular because it is always packed. Similarly, like the tubes on Victoria Line I was much happier when I arrived than when I departed..."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "We had a thoroughly good meal and experience - they were helpful and accommodating and we left feeling full and satisfied - would highly recommend the duck with crab meat and the coconut rice"
    dined on 02/03/2014
  • "Very tastey food with professional service in a lovely setting xxx"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "Came here for my 22nd birthday, managed to make a booking literally the day before for 13 people on Saturday! So that worked out pretty well. The food & flavor's were great and the cocktails too..... and they gave me a little happy birthday cocktail thing which was sweet."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "I am a fan of the seafood platter, my favourite being the fish cakes prawn toast followed by the the huge shrimp on the stick! Slightly disappointing that the mussels and scallops are no longer dipped in batter but is now encased in a dumpling like coating - resulting in bigger nibbles but less seafood!"
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "I love this restaurant! The food is delicious (as are the cocktails) and the interior design is authentic and unusual. I would definitely recommend Yum Yums for a special Thai meal."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "Going into the restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised how large it was and greeted by front of house to seat before our table was ready. We noticed a long bar with lounge area which was very nice with suitable modern music playing in the background. The food choices were vast, for starters we had chicken satay - bland chicken on skewers but a with tasty peanut sauce to dip and a Som Tam (papaya salad), moreish though very spicy. For mains we ordered a Thai red crab curry - that was delicious, and coconut rice; the perfect accompaniment in a wooden pot and ordered a chilli squid with vegetable dish. For dessert I recommend coconut ice cream! That made it. My partner had lemongrass crème brulee which was okay. The cocktails/mocktails fab."
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Service was poor. The glass had salt at the bottom. Menu was dirty and they gave me red wine when I asked for a white wine. My food was nice. My friends food not so great, but to be fair she tried something new and didn't overly like the taste."
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "Once again, YumYum produced great good, great taste and a great ambience. The food is always fresh and tasty and the price is very reasonable especially if you take advantage of any Toptable offers. We will definitely return."
    dined on 10/02/2014
  • "On the night I went there the place was full and lively with different diners eating and socializing,from local government official to families with children.The portions are generous and the food is freshly cooked and good.I can't imagine a visit here would not be enjoyable."
    dined on 11/02/2014
  • "the food and ambience at this restaurant used to be a truly beautiful experience.. not so authentic thai food and all dishes watery and taste the same. disappointing last 2 visits.."
    dined on 02/10/2013
  • "Food was very nice as was the cocktails. Was a little disappointed that top table discount was not available on that day (Friday )"
    dined on 17/01/2014
  • "Had a great meal, when it came to paying the bill we were informed we SHOULD have ordered from a special menu. We were sent confirmation email that stated 'you have chosen the 30% off deal' then asked to pay full price - Come on Yum yums!! :("
    dined on 22/01/2014
  • "We enjoyed our starters of vegetarian tom yum soup, it tasted just like I had had in Thailand a month ago. I had fried tofu salad and a green papaya salad, which had too much dressing. Wouldn't have those choices again, but as there was plenty of vegetarian choice I would return. My friend enjoyed her chicken green curry."
    dined on 14/01/2014
  • "Great food and ambience, just let down by the service!"
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "I really enjoyed my meal, everything came at a decent time."
    dined on 05/01/2014
  • "Initially impressed at Yum Yum, however the whole experience was ruined by the waitress messing up my order and delivering prawn toast instead of vegetable toast which I ordered. As the vegetables or prawns in this case are enclosed in the toast, I took 2-3 bites of the toast and was horrified to discover I had eaten prawn. I then alerted the waitress, who was 1st nonplussed and then when questioned about the error stated that I had in fact ordered the prawn toast! Service was extremely poor & offensive as I only ordered the veg. toast. The waitress was trying to cover up her error or the kitchen's. I wouldn't return to this restaurant in summary, as the service was poor and I would be worried my vegetarian dishes would contain meat."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "I very much enjoyed my recent meal in Yum Yum. The food was top notch as usual. I can't recommend this place enough."
    dined on 29/12/2013
  • "Fantastic food and service, i will definitely be going again."
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "This is not my first experience so I decided to book again for my son's 19th birthday. The ambienance is wonderful and our party didnt have to wait to be seated. The waiter took a while to attend to us, but promptly took our drinks order. We ordered the platter for two, which was delicious. The rest of the party ordered green curry and boiled rice and I opted for Pad Thai. I wasn't overly impressed, but the green curty was to die for. My only criticism is the length it took from requesting the bill to pay."
    dined on 08/12/2013
  • "Atmosphere noisy and full of fun. Food is above average but not fantastic. Good place to go with a group of mates."
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "Busy so service à bit slow but great food and wine"
    dined on 19/11/2013
  • "My friend and I had lunch in Yum Yum, we're both Asian, and it felt like being in Asia! I don't mean those touristy restaurants, but a nice restaurant in SE Asia. Food was very good and so was the service. I have to say though for the price value for money wasn't great as portions weren't very big."
    dined on 17/11/2013
  • "Great food in a relaxed environment. Excellent value for money."

  • "YumYums is always busy ... you never quite know what to expect when you first walk in, but every time I've been, it's buzzing and the size and setting of the place always takes me by surprise. I love Yum Yums. Consistently good food and service in a restaurant that feels really quality. Recommended."

  • "Went with friends and had a lovely evening. Food very nice and everyone enjoyed themselves."
    dined on 07/09/2013
  • "We arrived late after being accosted by trick or treaters on the way up the high street . All the staff were desked out as witches and were in fine form, very friendly and attentive. I took the Kang Mussaman and it was delicious . A very good dining experience."
    dined on 31/10/2013
  • "Friendly receptionist and bar staff, helpful waitress. We were a group of 4 people.We enjoyed our starters-specially the soft shelf crab with chilly and the spring rolls- however when we got the main courses, two of us were really disappointed. The squid with tomatoes and pineapple: the sauce was good but the squid it self was so tasteless that no even the sauced make it tasty. Beef : ok, but average. However, I was lucky with my Sea bream with tamarind sauce, as it was delightful, and big enough to be shared. This was the highly of the dinner. It was just great. The vegetarian curry was really good too. I will give Yum Yum a second try.Seems that when they got it right it worth it. Ps: Great idea to have a happy hour mocktails"
