Really friendly environment, good food and amazing bbq.
We eate fish snaper on BBQ, which was amazing.

“A bad eating experience!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

The food wasn't great here. I had stir fried beef in black pepper sauce, which was ok. My wife had yellow chicken curry, that was not! When it arrived it was a hug bowl, almost overflowing, with chicken lost somewhere at the bottom. It just had no flavour, as it had be swamped with coconut milk and water...so that's what it taste of...watery coconut milk. You could just make out the spices somewhere in the background.

We did speak to the waiter who apologised and told us that the real chef wasn't cooking today! He did offer us something else and gave a small discount.

They do have a wood fired pizza oven, so I wish I'd had a pizza!

“Delicious and a great price”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This is great local food with local prices! Everything is cooked fresh so takes at least 15 minutes to,prepare but you have a great view of the ocean to enjoy while you're waiting.

“4 nights on Gili Meno = 4 dinner at Yaya ”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed everything. Very cheap and very good!

Note that everything is cooked to order, so bring some time to wait!

Our favorites: fried noodles special, pancakes, banana juice, fried onion rings.
The chili was not so exciting (we are spoiled by the Thailand curry).

“Great food and so cheap!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Like everyone else - we loved YaYa. The food was great (try the pancakes), but be prepared for a little bit of a wait for the food, this place is definitely operating on Island Time!
