Staff were superb and very attentive without bothering you, just high quality training evident. Great menu choice of Chinese, Thai or Malaysian fusion food... More

One of my favourite places to eat. Offering halal chicken and beef. Consistent and never disappointed with quality of food. Although this occasion was a delay in getting our starters. But every time I've visited it's been very enjoyable. Good service. Friendly staff. Excellent food

Nice fusion food, including Thai, friendly service, bar area and dining areas in close proximity, but without that being too problematic except when there is a large and load group at the bar.

Being a large venue we are able to cater for drinkers as well as diners and usually they do not mix because of the large area, but this on busy nights leads to a great atmosphere at Yo Yo's... More

The menu choice spans so many cuisines – Chinese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Malaysian. Service in both the lounge bar and restaurant is very good. And the food? – fantastic!

We went in a large group and there were other large groups there. As a result, the service was slow and the wait staff not very attentive. The food was good if a little pricey. Biggest issue is that they point blank refused to allow split bills. Every restaurant in the USA provides this service by default. It was a... More
