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.

I have been visiting Ipoh for years and this is definitely one of the best meals I have had there. Scrummy food and quick friendly service. Excellent

A combination of Chinese, Thai & Nyonya styled restaurant with interesting decors that change from time to time. Mostly packed during dinner and weekends, but bookings are available. As for the food, the Curry or Assam Fish Head is superb. Also there's the Pandan Chicken, Kerabu, Tofu and Assam Prawns which are the must-try items. If you fancy something different,... More

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

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
