I came from a place whereby seafoods were abundant and fresh. Thei assam curry fish was very delicious, tasty, packed with lots of spices and most important of all, their fish is so fresh and juicy!. I am one of their die-hard sambal prawn petai, brinjal, special in-house tofu, brinjal with minced meat, assam fish, fried chicken and the list... More

This is my second visit to Yum Yum restaurant. Both times, I could not have expected a more delicious meal. The Nonya food is so different from your run of the mill Chinese food. This is a must visit restaurant! Sambal buah petai with prawns and the sayur paku were my favorite, though my husband found the fried sotong to... More

After an absence from Ipoh, we once again visited Yum Yum and were once again very pleased with the experience. Food is excellent, prices moderate, selection vast, service good.

We went to Yum Yum on a whim after hearing so much about the great food served there. I must say, we were not disappointed! So delicious, so flavoursome, so wonderful was the food that for a family of 4, we ordered and kept ordering different dishes until we had a feast fit for 10 hungry adults. Good thing they... More

The moment you stepped into the small restaurant, you are transported back to the 70s with its décor. Nothing fancy but it gives a charm of old Ipoh. The food is totally awesome but watch for its spiciness. Prices are reasonable. Service is great.It gets noisy though we people chatting at the top of their voices. Expect long Qs for... More

Four of use went there for dinner and had a nice meal of two meat and two vegetable dishes. Although most tables were occupied when we went there they were quick to take our order and deliver the food.

Had tried a number of Thai restaurants in Ipoh and found this to be the best. First time I went there was 18 years ago and they still manage to maintain the high quality of their food. If you like spicy food you should give it a try. Their spicy prawn soup is really good. Price is reasonable and it... More

This restaurant fulfils our expectations and more. We visited it last week for the 2nd time and we had lunch, sitting downstairs with adults on one round table and children on the other. It is a fusion of Nyonya plus other influences. I consider it among the top three choices of places we would go in Ipoh and this is... More
