I recently ordered some Yim Yam takeaway dishes through a menu site when I arrived to collect the waitress said they hadn't checked their computer to retrieve any orders so we had to wait 30 minutes while they made our meals. The food was good-ish but I did love the warm chicken coconut salad. We recently decided to have Yim... More

Great little local Thai/Laos restuarant. Tasty food. Pleasant service. Highlight for me is that I can get fresh, spicy Papaya Salad (Som Tum: Thai or Laos) made from Papaya! Sticky rice available too! Recommended :-)

I love Thai food there is a great selection. The service is acceptable , the food is the draw card. Thoroughly enjoyed the tamarind fish & the rice salad . The toilets definitely need a good clean or renovating!

Yim Yam Moonee Ponds never disappoints take-away wise, it is always very tasty albeit busy and new staff the last time we picked some up. Their Pad Thai chicken is always a favourite as well as garlic pepper squid or red duck curry. I wish they'd bring Thai fish cakes back to Moonee Ponds tho!

We dine at this restaurant regularly . The food is always good and the service good. It's nice to be able to byo and not have to pay inflated prices for wine. The prices are very reasonable.

Don't even bother. The food is terrible, the chef's go to the toilet with their aprons on and when you walk past their kitchen from outside you get a whiff of an absolute rank smell. I would not let my worst enemy eat here.

The Smith St Collingwood restaurant has a great value lunch special at the moment - $8.50 (or $7 for the daily special) for some really tasty thai/laos food. Well worth a visit. I've been there in the evenings and my eating companions have loved it. My sense is it is very tasty and reasonable value without being outstanding. The staff... More

Have always enjoyed the food at the Moonee Ponds restaurant but since the move to Ascot Vale have been disappointed. We dined there the first week in the new premises and were disappointed in the service (non existent) and the food. They had run out of rice by 7.00pm. We were also told they didn't have their alcohol licence yet.... More

My husband and I went to Yim Yam Restaurant Ascot Vale last night for dinner...and we were disappointed once again. I thought i would give them another chance having dined at the Moonee Ponds restaurant before, where we were served a cold meal but thought it was a once off. Once again the meal was lukewarm, our water arrived after... More

I have been to Yim Yam twice, The manager is unable to smile, so you feel like you have made a mistake as soon as you walk in the door - a really frosty welcome. First time we were seated at street level and the food was Ok, second visit we were seated down some really steep and rickety stairs,... More
