This is a great place to visit. The staff are fantastic. A very enjoyable visit. The only slight complaint I have is that the food was slightly bland. That said I would visit again.

We were at a loose end and wanted a restaurant on the north side of Bradford. Went on Trip Advisor and found this restaurant as no.1 in Shipley. It is worthy of that accolade as the staff, the food and the value are all excellent. We went for the set tea time menu and what great choices for a very... More

We used to go to Yo Yos a lot when it was in the previous owners hands and we always used to have a few cocktails and bar snacks before we went on in Shipley. It was always good food backed up by friendly staff and wicked cocktails. The last time we visited(after not being there for a few years)... More

Great customer service and great food. If you want a hassle free, consistently good food and good customer service, pay this hidden little gem a visit. It's a shame to see this place drop to 3rd, they are worthy of a much higher placing within the local area!

Dear Susanhami, Many thanks for your review, so pleased you enjoy dining at Yo Yo Bar & Restaurant and dined here on many occasions.

Friendly staff, I had the Prawn and salmon black bean with coconut rice, and it was delicious. Liked that water was automatically brought to the table on arrival. My only negative was the amount of time the poor staff spent changing the cutlery and plates! Before our starter one member of staff took away my wine glass, then another took... More

Yoyo's never disappoints; with amazing food, fantastic service and a family environment, what's not to love? I have never found the food nor the service to be anything but above the rest and therefore would highly recommend this family-run restaurant and bar to everyone. If you're looking for a romantic, family, business or even a solo meal then i can... More
