Pretty good nonya style food

Lucky we went early as the place was booked out from 7pm onwards. Some great dishes and some average dishes. The asam fish sauce was really good, but the fish itself just ok. I liked the pandan chicken, but opinion was divided across the table. A safe choice for a decent meal.

Probably the best Chinese food I've ever had. The restaurant is extremely busy which bears testament to how good it is. We had the Pandan chicken, deep fried tofu in plum sauce, baby kai lan and rice with 2 drinks for 24.40RM. The service was also very friendly but be prepared for the chilly A/C and noisy atmosphere (most tables... More

If you are looking fpr something different apart from the famous chicken hor fun and the rest of yummy Ipoh food, this is the place to go . Appetising Thai fusion restaurant. Must try is their assam fish , kerabu pucuk paku and prawn petai and their signature Thai Laksa ! Only on Fridays for lunch...we tried their Emperor Chicken... More

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
