“Yummy Yummy is Yummy Yummy”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

This place certainly lives up to its name! We found ourselves in the area on a bank holiday Sunday evening. Having planned a pub meal in teh evening we discovered that none of the local pubs served evening meals. We ventured into Ashinston, which isnt the most inviting place. Haveing checked trip advisor we headed to this restaurant and werent disappointed. The decor is nice, the restaurant is clean and more welcoming than the others in the locality. The staff were friendly and helpful. They offer a buffet, which isnt traditional. Basically you pay the price and can order as many times and as many dishes as you like (starters and maincourses)- all they ask is that you dont leave them uneaten. This means that your meal is freshly cooked and hot, not like traditional buffets. The food was lovely too. Although perhaps a spice warning should be put alongside some of the options. My son (10) ordered a sizzling Beef dish, which had no mention of chillis, and which was VERY spicey...... but he is quite keen on a bit of spice and despite the sweat dripping down his head, said that it was his best Chinese meal EVER!
The only reason that we have marked down is because outside the menu indicated that children under 8 ate half price from the buffet (this wasnt repeated on the inside menu), yet despite asking their ages, our youngest was charged full price. We didnt quibble (maybe we should have) but he ate a fair amount and really enjoyed it and so we felt it was worth it. If hungry and in Ashington, this is the place to go. Would definately go back

“The best!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We have been to a lot of chinese restaurants in the north east, and yummy yummy is by far the best, only let down is that its in ashington, (haha) but once your inside they do a good job of making you forget that
the decor is really nice, the staff are friendly and helpfull, everything is clean, the price is right and the main thing is that the food is top notch, we always have the all you can eat buffet, which unlike other restaurants isnt all heaped up in a corner waiting for you,
Yummy yummy let you order whatever you want and cook it fresh for you as many times as you like!!
If you like chinese food, you will love yummy yummy!!

“Great Value for Money”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Had a fabulous meal here recently its Ashingtons little gem. Got soup, starters, duck pancakes and mains all for £12.50 per head from their buffet choice, all delicious, well presented, place is spotlessly clean, and the staff very nice. Would definitely recommend. Competes very well with other more expensive chinese restaurants found in the surrounding areas. It can be found on Woodhord Road near the bus station.

“beautiful”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

yummy yummy is a lovely chinese rest that you can eat all you like, it isnt a buffet, what happens is you order off the menu and they bring your order and then you just keep ordering until your full.they have the best idea as doing that your food is always freshly cooked and hot.the quality of food gets top marks and loads to choose from. would def recommend trying it.its £2 more on a saturday evening for some reason so if theres a few that could mount up to quite a bit, so go a different night.£12.90 saturday evening, £10.90 other nights and its worth it.
