Yum Yum is a long established restaurant and serves a subtle variety of Peranakan and Thai cuisine. We were family members but a table for 12 was found in a very crowded place, The dishes are excellent though the Gulai Tumis (Tamarind Fish Curry) was disappointing (the pomfret? was not the best). the Asam Prawns, Yum Yum Fried eggs and...

Finally got to try Yum Yum... And it was really yum yum! 👍 Chicken pandan, prawn curry, kangkong belacan and lady finger w/ an awesome topping tastes great. This place is always full and the wait for our table was worth it. Mostly locals come here, so taste is authentic and great value for its portions. Can't wait for my... More

Ipoh lacks good nonya food, but Yum2 offers some of the best dishes representing the peranakan cuisine. The decor is fascinating, with antiques and other interesting items on display all over the interior. The aroma that assails your nostrils when you walk in gives you a great sense of anticipation of the delicious dishes which await you. High on my... More

This place was recommended to us by a local so I had good expectations for what I would get. Parking was easy and the road outside very wide (but this was a Sunday so that may have helped). We got there early and had no problem finding a table but when we had finished our meal they were full and... More

My family's favourite restaurant in Ipoh for a local meal with peranakan flavour. Our favourite picks ... the appetizing curry fish head, deep fried chicken drumstick always done just right, crispy skin with tender juicy meat, tofu cubes prepared in sweet and sour sauce siamese style, minced pork omelette, brinjal and stir fried choy sum. Like its namesake, the food... More

All of the diners got vomit / diarrhea / Tummy upset after the dinner @ Yum Yum Restaurant. Food taste was NOT up to the mark and the service was horrible from both of the boss and staff.

This is well known to folks in Ipoh but less so for tourists from out of town unless they Google TA etc. The food is good overall value for money esp if you are from the bigger cities where your pocket is deep ! We had Assam fish, Kerabu, Pandan chicken, omelette, veggies etc. All good ! I have also... More

I have eaten here many times in days gone by and never been disappointed. Last night demonstrated that standards had been maintained with good food and efficient service. The centerpiece of our meal was one of the restaurants well known dishes- curried fish head. It was just as it should have been tasty but not too spicy. We supported it... More

Had another meal in Yum Yum during one of my many visits to Ipoh. Once again another great meal with great choice. It can get a little noisy around 7.00 at night but that means it is very busy and makes it a great atmosphere.
