This place now has 12 branches but we still remember the length of the queue when it first opened in Soho several years ago. Thai food is one of our favourite and Busaba very accessible and tasty menu’ is a good destination to take people that are not from London come around to visit. One alternative at the classic pad thai and currys is the duck massaman, which is extremely tasty in particular when eaten with a fried roti. The concern here is that over time the chain approach to mass production will be affecting the quality of the food, this already happened in some of the branches.
Yum Yum is located in Stoke Newington and recently became one of our favorite places regarding thai! As a starter we had crab spring rolls & grilled prawns marinated in thai herbs and served with a peanut sauce; both were very tasty. As for the main courses we ordered thai curries – chicken green curry, beef baneng curry and lamb mussaman curry! The way the food is served along with the ambiance and the taste itself make Yum Yum a place I would like to visit again! Definitely recommended!
