“Asian-style convenience food at Copenhagen International Airport”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Yam Yam, an airport fast food outlet, is located inside the international terminal at Copenhagen-Kastrup Airport, alongside a number of other snack bars and bars. It offers several choices of Asian meat-based meals, ex:Teriyaki chicken Butter chicken, served on your choice of rice or noodles.The choices you select are microwaved in a small wax box for DKK 68, or in a larger-sized box, with free 50 cL pop, for DKK 99. The food is ok to fair; it has a slightly odd, stodgy taste. Yam Yam's has the cheapest hot food available in that section of the terminal. A useful way to load up on protein and carbs before boarding a plane, or another way to use up your airline food vouchers if you happen to be 'grounded' at Kastrup Airport for 11 hours +!

“Terrible food at too high a price”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I was connection in Copenhagen with a friend when we decided to eat at this restaurant of all of the restaurants in the airport.

What a mistake that was!

If we set aside the open air atmosphere (it is at the airport after all), the biggest complaints were the food and the price.

Whatever dish you order, you have the choice of having it served over rice or noodes wihch literally must sit underneath a heat lamp until the product is consumed.

Then whatever sauce and meat you order is ***sparingly*** poured over the rice or noodles (the chicken in my green curry was gone before I was half way through the "meal") and then nuked until all taste and flavour disappear and what you are left with is a hot box of something with no taste at all. All at a a price which is amongst the highest in the airport for what you get. In excess of €10 which actually should be reported to the authorities as a rip off.

The price is terrible and the taste is terrible. I doubt any of it is actually made on site. The focus is on volume not taste. Which is disappointing because there are restaurants directly on each side of it which clearly put effort into their food and preparation.

The meal was bad enough that neither my friend or I could finish it. Even a medium-sized beer did nothing to make it more palatable or edible.

In short, this just might simply be the worst restaurant. You'll be tempted to stand in the line and order something from them. The restaurants on either side of them have long queues and Yam Yam's queue seem to go quickly in comparison. But don't be fooled. The clue is in the queue. Something worth waiting for might require some time. Simply go somewhere else in the airport to eat. Anywhere else really.

“Not as Tasty as I Had hoped...”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

In the vast tastelessness that is airport food, this looked very appetising and smelled really great.

Unfortunately it was a bit style over content at about £10 a pop. You can choose from rice or noodles and there were about 6 or 7 different curries to choose from. We had one noodles and one rice, both with chicken tikka masala - we also had extra cashew nuts for 10Kr each. The curry just lacked oomph!

Attractively served in a box with a choice of fork or chopsticks to eat it with. Staff were excellent and the surroundings are very clean. The seating was adequate and there is a good view of the airplane action.

Could be really great with a little tweak of the recipe.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Got a few pieces of chicken over a block of nudles. Taste was ok but way too little.
