Found the place to be relatively quiet on a Monday evening. On previous visits probably came on Thursday, Friday or Saturday when the place tends to be heaving with people and extremely busy. The quieter Monday scene at least meant less pressure on waiting staff and kitchen so perhaps we were served more speedily? The wide menu choices led to... More

I've been to YumYum many times and I have always enjoyed the atmosphere, food and cocktails. The staff are always pleasant and patient. There's options for most dietary requirements, Happy Hour is something not to miss lol My faith has been restored after visiting the one in Walthamstow.

Don't get me wrong its a nice place. I think I am annoyed at the very small portions given the price being charged. I would give this place a 4/5 if they either increase the portion a little bit or bring price down a little bit to reflect the tiniest portion that they are dishing out. we had thai green... More

Absolutely dreadful evening at this restaurant...... The food is poor.... we ordered the mixed platter to start which was really flavourless and dry. Jungle curry was awful!! zero flavour and the vegetables in the curry weren't fresh, no crunch..... Service with a smile, we have previously been to yum yum's and the staff are normally friendly, however on this occasion... More

This place has really good food, great variety, tasty cocktails and a lovely ambience. The let down is the service. The waitress is always very efficient, but to the point of being almost rude and a bit military and it does put us off going regularly. A bit of personality, friendliness and making the customer feel valued would go a... More

And even greater so for vegetarians. Popular restaurant with a nice atmosphere, if a little generic.

Stranded in Walthamstow so went to this Thai. Although the food was not bad it was not cooked to order you can always tell old chicken and the service was a constant attempt to attract the waitessses eye. So what have you got a rather big restaurant with no atmosphere and very ordinary cooking. Need to do better.

I went to YumYum in Stoke Newington last Friday for a birthday. There were 12 of us on the table. We were surrounded by long tables which made us feel like we were in a school hall! It was ridiculously noisy with approx. 50 people sitting in one area. There was no ambiance, no music and most importantly- no service!!!... More
