Four of us on a relatively quiet Friday in a miserably cold and now wet January enjoyed ourselves tremendously over a very tasty evening. We opted for two combo platters for starters, the fish and the Indian/Malaysian combo and then three different mains. Everything arrived with no hassle and was eaten with gusto. The tempura batter (easy to get wrong)... More

My wife and I had an excellent meal again, on a return visit to Yo Yo. The whole experience is good, from well trained, attentive staff, to relaxing ambiance, and great food. The beef massaman curry is to die for!

Good food; friendly, well trained staff; good atmosphere; great music. What's not to like? Thank you Simon and staff for another superb meal - shared Chinese combo, beef massaman curry with jasmine rice, duck teriyaki with egg noodles, creme brûlée and cheese platter - and a very enjoyable evening out. We'll be back!

Went to this Restaurant on the 17th December for a Birthday Night out. It was a very clean and welcoming place. The food was of a very high standard and the service was exemplary. I would recommend this restaurant very highly, well worth a visit.
