The food is delicious and the service is good. The only negative thing is its only open certain days and because its shuch a small venue tends to be full. So book in advance .

The coffee is probably the best local coffee in South Africa. In actual fact it is mind blowing. We did not eat here, but the aroma was fantastic. I will be back soon!

We were a large group of ten, so be warned. Place was heavenly in the middle of a hard day, but it took forever to get our food. It is highly worth your time and everyone loved their food, BUT it was the slowest service on earth. Sooooooo do not go with a large group. Stick to 4 or less... More

Lovely setting, great food. Can be a bit slow on service if they're busy, but the food is made from scratch and worth the wait. If your in a rush, I would suggest going else where as this is a place you want to relax in and take your time.

What a great surprise to find a true gourmet restaurant in Tzaneen. Everything from starters to main course and deserts were perfectly cooked, the wine was good and the service was the best in town.

I know I've reviewed this restaurant before - but yesterday I had the best "Bunny Chow" I've ever had outside Kwa Zulu Natal. Nice spicy curry in a brioche. My wife had a banting burger with a large mushroom replacing the bun. This is a lovely venue with great food and good service at very reasonable prices

I loved the setting of this place, the arts, the decor was very, very cool! The menu choices was so interesting and different and the actual tasting was yummy. The cheesecake at the end is a must! Such a lovely place!

My friend recommended the spot and that was the best thing she could have done!! Eccentric, Artsy and unique are a few adjectives to describe Yum Yum restaurant. If you have ever been to Cape town, it is something you will find on Long Street or lower Main in Observatory. The food, service and ambience was stellar :-)

Thank Sadie M
