“Yummy gets my nod!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Yummy is located in an area commonly known in Christchurch as "Church Corner" which is fast becoming Christchurch's own mini Chinatown.

Yummy was a great experience. When I compare it to what was served up at North & South Gourmet 2 weeks ago I suspect it may have clouded my view somewhat, in favor of Yummy. But it truly was a fantastic experience. Mind you, this restaurant is not what you would consider fine dining, but all the same, well worth a visit.

We were a group of 11 including 5 kids and all bar none had a great night.

The food was as close to traditional Chinese as I have tasted since I was in Shanghai a couple of years ago. Portion sizes were largish, food tasted great and the service was friendly and reasonably prompt, particularly given the place was full.

I will definitely be back to enjoy more of their offering.

“Cheap and busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

A crowded little restaurant in a downscale shopping area, this Chinese serves fairly good food quickly and inexpensively.

Because the earthquakes have put pressure on the better restaurants, you should make a reservation.

“Tasteless Chinese”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

Thought the food was tasteless and boring. We ordered two dishes of Yummy chicken and Garlic chili Mussels and were we disappointed. There was very little flavour and the chilis were the dried variety. All in all will not be visiting the restaurant again.
