“Excellent Thai Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I have been eating at Yum Yum regularly for years. The chicken dishes such as the musaman
curry are excellent and reasonable priced. Lunch specials on weekdays are an especially
good deal. The restaurant is close to the theater district. They will give you brown rice
if requested. Service is usually very prompt. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Excellent Thai meal at a very reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Stopped by on our first night in New York, a Sunday, it was crowded but not packed - Had good (SPICY) soup and Beef Pra Ram (peanut sauce over broccoli). Delicious. My friend had Beef with Garlic Sauce which was also excellent.

The price for both soups and both entrees was $30 icluding tax (but not tip). I will go back for sure - for NYC it is a remarkable value. Highly recommended.

The servers were very attentive and the food came out fast. A perfect evening.

“Great light Pre Show Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We didn't have reservations as we came downtown for the show, but fairly close we found Yum Yum Bangkok. It isn't a large and it was busy. I had a special beef with vegetables and julienned ginger was very good. Vern had the Panaang curry with pork and My sister had another special chicken curry. We both had the small corns which neither of us care for but we were all impressed with the flavors and textures and consistency. We had very efficient servers and the food was prepared and served promptly, leaving plenty of time to get to the theater. Couple plus one other adult.

“It was ordinary compared to many other vietnamese restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Food was ok, pricy for the quantity served that gives a smaller plate than usual. Service was not as welcomed either.

“Decent Thai But Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

This is one of my go to spots for when I am meeting friends in Hell’s Kitchen. Is it the most authentic or best Thai food I have had? No, there are a lot better out there, but if you get the Prix Fixe menu, it’s a decent price and tasty enough. Though, over the past four years, the prices have gotten higher while the portions have gotten smaller which is disappointing to see.
The service is okay.

I have never had a server who has ever really been great, they are just there. Also, the ambiance leaves a lot to be desired. It is dark and drab and the tables are close together so you will be in another table’s space hearing snippets of their conversations.

If you order appetizers, know that your entree will most likely be out before you finish as they like to flip tables quickly which can be frustrating if you are out to socialize. The nice thing is that if you buy a drink, you get an appetizer of your choice so that will buy you more time once you are done with dinner. That is a plus and gives you a good reason to keep downing drinks which luckily have sufficient levels of booze that will get your buzz on quickly enough.
