One of my favourite Chinese restaurants. Pleasant setting, excellent food, courteous staff. Closed Wednesdays.

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

This was my first time visiting this restaurant although I had seen good reviews. The reviews were well justified. An excellent menu of varied Chinese dishes, of which I wanted to try all but could not. Food was excellent, prices reasonable, decor of restaurant is subtle and very pleasant, prices reasonable. If you enjoy Chinese food, in a civilized atmosphere... More

We had a selection of foods from the menu to share and all we tried were very good. The place looked clean, the service was swift and the staff were friendly. We could not eat all the food but the remainder was wrapped up for us to take away. Would recommend as a good safe bet to anybody unsure where... More

Yum Yum offers a collection of traditional Chinese and Nonya (Straits Chinese dishes), including unusual dishes like Mango Shrimp. The decor includes two floors of antique nicknacks. It was so good, I ate there twice in a row; both times it was packed with local customers.
