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

My wife and I took our son to Yo Yo Café for a birthday dinner. This was the second time we have been there and we were not disappointed. On the hottest day of the year, the air conditioning was most welcome. There is a wide menu choice, with Chinese, Thai, Malaysian and Japanese food. We each enjoyed a wonderful... More

Ate here on a night's stopover, based on TripAdvisor reviews. The food was pleasant enough (prawns in filo with chilli and veg red curry) and for a Wednesday night I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that this cavernous restaurant was almost empty This being the case I would've thought that the staff would've found time to ask if I...

Dear Matt F, Thank you for your recent review. Pleased you enjoyed our food but not the service on your visit to us. We are normally over attentive on quiet nights, had I wanted a second drink I would have flagged a food server down to ask for one if they were not forthcoming as simple as that. Unfortunately I...

Top quality food from all over Asia. The ribs are famous amongst my friends and the Thai curry is excellent. Shipley's hidden gem.

I believe it is just the best food in Shipley. They have Japanese, Chinese, Thai and other cuisines. Food is nice likewise the service. Whenever I am in that city for business I will have dinner at Yoyo.

We were told this restaurant has been there for 10 years but we had never heard of it. As regular visitors to Bradford (at least 10 times a year) to visit relations we go out every time we are there and are always looking for places to eat. This is a hidden gem. The service was good and very friendly.... More

Visited with friends for a birthday celebration. I haven't been before but a friend who was with us had, hence the visit. Food was lovely, a good choice on the menu.

Dear Gemma H, Many thanks for your recent review and pleased you enjoyed your visit to Yo Yo's following your friends introduction. The Stir fry is not a dry dish, neither is it a curry or soup dish either, so can only apologise for what was served, but will have just been cooked in the Wok and therefore served straight... More
