I rarely visit these buffet places because they are notorious for lukewarm low quality food with potential to make you very sick. Reluctantly I visited Yummy Yummy with a friend who loves buffets. Initially I was surprised- staff were attentive, ordered our drinks straight away and guided us over to the buffet area but there are bigger issues that lay beneath.
As with most buffets there is a heavy emphasis on Indian and Chinese cuisine. There were a good selection of curries, rice and noodles. I tried the Korma which was bland, the rice unfortunately was very starchy and not that warm so I couldn't eat it. The lamb rogan-josh was good and surprisingly not greasy. The spring rolls were nice but were only just warm.
There is a cooking station where you can pick ingredients to make a stirfry. This looked really good with plenty of choices- peppers, onions, bean sprouts, prawns, chicken etc.
The salads are not chilled and just sit on the side all day in a bowl. This goes the same for everything that isn't under a hot counter. This is very concerning considering that the buffet starts for lunch and is open until late evening.. didn't see any temperature probing or equipment to do so.
The ingredients for the make-your-own stirfry: none of these items are kept chilled, merely in a bowl. What shocked me most is that the bowl of chicken contained 4 small ICE CUBES as an attempt to keep it chilled.. Is this some kind of joke? Do they want to make people sick?
Drinks were overpriced and small glasses.
Everyone loves cheap eats but improvements are clearly needed at this place. Take extra precautions if you are taking children.
