We always look for a good Thai lunch on the way home from the beach trip. Tables sticky and plates gummy on the bottom. Nice staff, but not worth the stop.

I grew up on Thai cuisine. I can safely say that the cuisine at this restaurant does not even come close. The Tom yum soup...might as well pour ketchup in a glass of water. The chicken satay..under sized pieces of meat, overcooked and tough. The basil spring rolls..made with iceberg lettuce and 1 single tiny shrimp in each one...what a... More

We went for lunch we really weren't impressed. That summer rolls were ok 2 small shrimp in each not really worth the cost. The Pad Thai had tough chicken and was bland. There was only 1 waitress we had to ask for water twice and really wasn't much for servicing the customer. We won't be back. There are much better... More

We went here for Dinner and surprisingly there were multiple vegetarian choices. Quality of food was very good and the waitress was very decent and respectful of our time/mood. She apologized when her beeper rang while talking to us, and continued with food explanation.

I'd never been to Thai restaurant in my life; however, I've become a huge fan of Thai food since I went yum yum. I and my girl friend wanted to try new and fresh dinner. We searched and found this restaurant. The reviews were correct. The service and taste were great, and the price was very fair!!!

Was one of few restaurants open when Cary shut down due to threat of snow.. The food was very good.. We had the Pad Thai, Red Curry and Tom Na.. All worth having again

I got takeout - if I had eaten in, I would have sent it back. Chicken dish defiantly had chicken livers in it. Eggplant was way too salty. Both dishes were soupy. I should have taken the hint when no one was there on a Friday night.

We found Yum Yum in a rainstorm on My birthday 3 years ago. The servers have never forgotten us since. The food is consistent fresh, good quality and plates very pretty. As a former green beret my husbands taste for Thai is hard to please however Yum Yum has done it for him as we'll as our entire family. His... More

This is my favorite local Thai restaurant, both for the use of bold flavors and because it is close to my work. The staff is friendly, but they know me because I eat there usually once/week. The decor is nice, but pretty basic. They are owned by the same people who own Thai Villa, but I like the food better... More
