Yum Yum – Stoke Newington

We were invited to a family celebration at Yum Yum Thai restaurant in Stoke Newington and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at what looked like a plush hotel that was a bit out of place with the surrounding area.

The restaurant is housed in a grand listed Georgian building covered in lights and surrounded by Asian inspired decorative features. The inside is just as impressive with a bar and a relaxed seating area to one side and a formal eating area on the other. It also has a traditional seating area with very low tables where the customers can sit crossed legged on the floor and eat.

We went to Yum Yum on a weekday evening and so it was relatively empty which is just a well because we were in a large group of over 25 and that included some very lively little people that I can imagine would have irritated other diners had there been any close to us.

Being one of the first to arrive (I hate being late) I thought we would have been asked if we would like to order any drinks but it was ages before a waiter approached us and for such a big party I was surprised that we only had one waiter throughout the evening, although he was very tolerant of all our needs.

The food seemed reasonably priced but as it all looked so delicious as it was being brought out it was hard not to over order. I am not really much of a starter person so I waited for my main course of chicken while my daughter chose crab. The rice is ordered separately and is quite a generous portion so we shared.

The food was really tasty and filling so I didn’t even bother to look at the dessert menu. To wash it all down there were quite a few cocktails available as well as all the other usual alcoholic beverages.

I don’t eat Thai food very often but it was a really lovey evening and I would happily go back and sample a few of their other dishes. They also have a takeaway and delivery service if you happen to live in the area!
