“Cheap, consistent, cheerful”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

A team from work eat here about once every six weeks, and get a slap up Chinese meal for about $12-15 each. Service is fast, the place is clean and functional, and the food is great.

If you're looking for a good, solid, economical Chinese meal, it would be hard to go past Yummy.

“When an ethnic restaurant is full of ethnic nationals, then something must be right!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

When you go to a Chinese, and many of the diners are Chinese, then it speaks volumes!

We have dined at Yummy many times over recent years, always consistently good and great value. Wide choice on the menu, but then you always go back to your favourite, which is always as rewarding as last time.

Often full at peak times, so it pays to book. Bottom line is you can afford to dine out here 2-3 times for the price you would pay for other options around the town.

BYO, notional corkage, and we have always found the service attentive yet unobtrusive.

We'll go back again, particularly with a group when you don't want to break the bank!

“Cheap and Quick”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This place is cheap and quick - just where you need to go when you want a quick tasty meal. It also has large round tables for groups. You will notice when you go in that all the tables are reserved - but we worked out that they put that on so you don't just go and sit on a large table when there is only 4 of you. It does get very busy but they have an extra dining room they can open up. Their sizziling hotplate it great.

“Average chinese”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

To start, the food was average nothing special. The pricing was cheap but the main complaint was the service. My waitress just placed my plate in front of me without manners and didn't even check on us at all while she was talking to the otther staff there. I don't recommend this place

“Great taste and value”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Yummys used to be our regular haunt - is still the family's! Was great to have some after a while away - same great taste. It has gotten way more popular now, so there can be a delay. My fav is the vietnamese taste pork - with whole dried chillies - not for the faint hearted. Its the best - and great value for their meals also. I recommend getting a vege dish for the side - otherwise it can be a bit of a meat fest!
