We really enjoyed our experience at Yo Yo. Simon the owner/manager was very friendly and gave us some advise about our planned trip the next day to the Saltair Mill. Nice ambiance too. Don't have to have a meal as you can just go in for a drink and the cosy bar. All in all we enjoyed the evening and... More

The other night (11 Oct 2014), had my first dinner at Yo-Yo bar & restaurant, Shipley. I was immediately impressed by the spacious layout of the place. There's a relaxing bar on one side and restaurant on the other. The staff were friendly and service was efficient. Starters included a mixed plate of chicken yatori and pork ribs among others....

Loved the place and the food but the bill is a bit of shock at the end of the night, daft things like rice is extra, and having just come back from Spain, paying £25 for a bottle of Cava hurt a bit. Would go again for sure but not on a regular basis

Dear Charlie S, Many thanks for your review so pleased you enjoyed the place and food, but like the previous review had concerns about the experience being costly, especially the cost of a bottle of Cava!
