“Relax pan Asian style in Brighton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We enjoyed a delicious lunch on a sunny day in the alfresco courtyard, a blissfully calm space tucked away from the hurly burly of Brighton's lanes. The extensive menu includes snacks like Dim Sums and Bincho Sticks as well as great Asian dishes which add up to a real feast. Our waitress was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is very relaxed and prices reasonable My Bo Saam Braised Pork Belly was perfect - pork strips sweet and succulent accompanied by crispy lengths of cracking which you wrap and roll in a pak choi leaf and dip. Seafoods equally great- the Yum Yum Native Blue Lobster arrived looking like a work of art and tasted - well, yummy. It has am extensive wine list plus some very special sakes - the one containing flakes of edible gold f made an excellent finale to our very enjoyable meal -

“A great night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I ate at Yum Yum Ninja recently, with my husband, plus our vegan daughter & her boyfriend.
Asian fusion is probably the best way to describe it.
There was plenty on the menu that she could eat & she said that it was all delicious.
We didn't know what any of the dishes were, which I absolutely loved! It's great to discover new food.
The waitress was marvellous. She really looked after us well. She helped us to choose what to eat & she knew what she was talking about.
Eating at Yum Yum Ninja is a sharing experience. The dishes arrive when they're ready & we all tucked in to everything - & there was plenty there!
And then came the desserts. OMG! We had the Taste of Yum Yum Desserts which is a selection of the sweet menu. Super-gorgeous!!!!!!!
Then we went upstairs to the cocktail bar, known as an Izdaya. We all had a Ninja Bar cocktail, prepared by the character mixologist.
Yum Yum Ninja isn't just a place to eat at on your way to somewhere else. It's an experience to be slowly enjoyed for the evening. We loved it!

“Amazing pan asian tapas style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We sat over looking where the food was made and prepared, was a great location as we didn't need to wait for our food to be brought over to us as they were just passed to us over the counter! The food was amazing but over ordered slightly. The pork belly was incredible and the monkfish cheeks were fab too.

“Ninjalicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely fantastic. We had the sharing platter to start and a five set Dim sum. Delicious food, apart from maybe the chilli pickle cabbage which is for the spicy hit fans of the world. Great drinks and lovely area to sit out in the sun. Made for a great weekend.

“Little treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Originally booked sister restaurant Riddle & Finns but changed mind last minute due to calmness of Yum Yum's during Pride weekend. Peaceful court yard, truly wonderful staff not forgetting taste sensations! Still can't forget yasai salad, wakame salad, Alaskan black cod, seafood rice, sharing basket. Great value truly pan Asian and worth a return visit for
sure as wanted most dishes. Wonderful chef dishes I can't stop thinking about. Choice of seating areas according to what you'd like. Great for groups, families & foodies.
