An excellent eveing

Lovely food, very good service from friendly waitress and waiter. A good place for a party. Cocktails were really nice and we were able to enjoy them away from the dining table in a very comfy seating area, or have a pre meal drink.

Fab food and drinks. Staff very friendly. Been a few times and it is always empty for such a big place. People need to use it or lose it. The night i was there with friends i saw the manager/ owner turn some ladies away who had come to use the cocktail bar at just before 10pm. Shame as they... More

Dear Claire B, Thank you for your recent review. I think the weekend you dined with us was an extremely quiet one not only for us for all the restaurants in the area. Whilst I appreciate your concerns as to why a group of ladies were turned away was the fact that we had so few customers that last orders... More

Not been before having just moved from Leeds and deciding to try TripAdvisor...my meal at yo yo was, I thought well cooked, seasoned and tasted great. Staff and atmosphere were equally good. My only issue would be, in my opinion it needs some finesse with presentation. Overall, I would go back just for the flavours

Dear Ben 2341, Many thanks for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your dining experience at Yo Yo's. Presentation is quite subjective and cannot comment on what you ordered when you dined with us, but we are not a fine dining restaurant and do not like to mess around with the food too much. If it was cooked in the... More

Went for a birthday treat with my girlfriend on a Tuesday. Great setting and a brilliant menu. Service was polite, friendly and quick. I would perhaps suggest that some prices are a touch high, for example Prosecco £22 a bottle is steep but not enough so to upset a meal. Worth a visit.

We came here for cocktails and dessert and we were so impressed. Great service. The place has a nice, relaxed feel and the desserts we had were amazing. I can recommend the Chocolate Scrapheap and the Treacle Pudding. Delicious!

Called in for an early tea and found it a little quiet although it was only 6 'sh. The service was , as usual very friendly . The meal was first class and exactly what we ordered. A little disappointed we were not offered prawn crackers prior to our starter!.well worth a visit and a real positive for shipley.

I tried 4 different restaurants on a short trip to Shipley/Saltaire. This was head and shoulders above the rest I turned up on a Saturday evening with no reservation and, whilst it was busy, I was seated immediately. The staff were very attentive. The menu is a combination of Chinese, Indian, Thai and Japanese. My son had recently returned from... More
