Yap! Is a no questions, solid choice for dining. Whether Its outside for cocktails and lunch, or at a table for a wonderful dining experience. The food is accessible for all patrons with an eclectic mix of South Eastern Asian cuisine all the way to familiar dishes with an Asian touch. Don't turn up your nose, give it a try.

This restaurant has great cocktails and amazing Malaysian food. If you can only try one item, get the black bean ribs. The atmosphere is very pleasant, but try not to sit at the tables by the door in the winter... very chilly.

We have eaten several times at Yap, most recently yesterday ! It continues to be our "go to" place downtown Greenville. Prices are very reasonable, the food is very well presented and served by knowedgable and helpful servers. The food is not over spiced as it is in some similar establishments ( hotter is not always better!) allowing the true... More

Nice location, decent service, and above average cuisine at fair prices. There is a definite Thai influence on the menu as well as middle eastern. Both of the dishes we had were very flavorful and freshly prepared. Worth a stop if visiting the downtown area. Parking can be an issue.

On a visit to Greenville we tried this place despite the unpromising name. We were really surprised with the atmosphere, service and food as they were all great. We had the most informative and helpful server, she made the evening! The restaurant is Malay/Asian influence. We tried the Chicken Satay Bites w/ peanut sauce for appetizer and then followed with...

Went here with the family for my birthday dinner. If I hadn't looked it up before going I may well have missed it, but am so glad I did not. We shared a Bacon Mushroom Strudel appetizer and all had different dishes...everyone thought their meal was excellent. I had the curry laksa, my wife had a wonderful Thai Tom Yum... More
