Meh. Ordered my dish spicy and it wasn't - needed spice tray. Chicken was plentiful, but didn't taste fresh (reheated maybe) and very tough & dry.

Ordered some take out from here. The place was a ghost town on Wednesday night...just the staff sitting at a table. Ordered chicken pad thai and spring rolls. They got the spice level just right for what I ordered, and the pad thai was delicious. It had a few tofu pieces I considered a welcome surprise (but tofu isn't for... More

Deciding to treat myself to a quiet lunch alone, I slipped into YumYum Thai and was quickly seated. Everyone was extremely nice and the service was exceptional. I had a delicious meal for a fair price and never needed to look far for attention from any server or manager. If you love Thai food, be sure to visit this gem... More

I came in on a MON night & had the place practically to myself, so I was seated immediately. The waitress was pleasant & quick as my drink & appetizer came quickly. The Shrimp Basil Rolls were large & pretty good (about the size of a burrito). I ordered the Chicken Massaman Curry (medium spice). That too was served quickly... More

I have gone to Yum-Yum for lunch for a few years, and they always do a good job on their soups and noodles. Their pad thai is good as well. Service if pretty quick as well.

I have ordered to-go here a number of times. My first 1 or 2 experiences were good. Food tasted great. My only initial complaint was how long it took for my food to be ready. They said it would be about 15 mins. I got there about 20 after and ended up waiting at least another 15 mins (wasn't busy... More

After reading the other reviews I thought it would be outstanding. We were disappointed. It was average at best. The server was congenial and pleasant. The setting was ok. They need to repair the torn curtain leading to the kitchen. We don't plan to go back.

This place is so good, so consistently that it has become my favorite restaurant in Cary. Had the Pad Prik Sod with spicy brown sauce and beef... simply amazing. Fast friendly service as well. Don't hesitate for a single second: get over here to be amazed.

Great curries. Friendly staff. Only one beer selection, but its an asian import. Have not ever seen it overly crowded. Seems like many of the customers are asian.
