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

A must go for great Nonya food. The service was good. Decorations were very well done. Another Ipoh restaurant that must be experienced. Parking might be an issue, but we had no problems parking on the street in front. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food.

The food is a fusion of Nyonya with Thai influences. Absolutely delicious, and something a bit different from the readily available Malaysian food served elsewhere. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I were refused service because they were only serving large families from Hong Kong. If you want to support this type of establishment, just be prepared for a horrible experience.

In a town renowned for its food this little restaurant is excellent. Despite the somewhat bizarre name it really is "Yum Yum". We made a special detour of the highway to eat there and it was worth it. Excellent original dishes with good service and atmosphere
