We visited as part of a group of adults, celebrating a birthday. The choice from the menu is amazing, it was a busy Saturday evening, and the staff answered any questions, we had, politely and fully. Nothing appeared to be any trouble, the food was above excellent, all in all a superb night out.

Had a lovely meal here tonight, a treat from my husbands boss. We took my 15 month old son. He was a little unsettled so couldn't eat my food straight away so they took my food away to keep it warm. Very helpful. The food was amazing. Definitely can't wait to go back when I have the chance to sit... More

I am quite reluctant to eat out because I often feel you pay a lot of money for something you could cook as well at home. Not in this case. The food was delicious, very tasty.

Good old Trip Advisor. You can't go wrong if you trust the Trip Advisor Community to steer you towards a good restaurant when you are in unfamiliar territory Yo Yo is no exception to to the rule.
