“excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Very good food and service and very reasonably priced. The turnaround of customers is fairly sharp, but I think this helps them keep the prices low. An excellent place to go if you want a good, quick meal.

“Good and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Good food, very good portions, regular prices.
I was not amazed by the food, but on the other hand nothing was less than ok, at all.
Enjoyed the meal, fair prices, friendly stuff.
Will go again for lunch.

“Fast Asian Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

A favourite of mine! can where you get a main course for under £10 for good a portion size. the restaurant also convienently located on kings street where this plenty of (FREE) motorcycle parking and plenty of independent clothing stores and hairdressers. I tend to combine getting my hair done with lunch at Yippee

Overall food good and would recommend this restaurant

“Fast and good food, lame service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

It's a good place for a fast service and good food. It's our usual to-go Asian place. Although, half the time we go there their waiters are very rude. You might get your plate slapped on your table and they have a very arrogant way of acknowledging customers. But then again it's not a restaurant, it's just a sit down with long benches and food makes up for it all. My husband goes there mostly for their soups which are delicious just like most of the stuff on the menu. I rated this one solely on food.

“Consistently great quality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

We always used to use Milton House for takeaways, but their standards have been slipping, so we've switched allegiance to Yippee. We also use it for sitdown meals, such is the quality. It's a typical "Japanese" syle restaurant, with wooden benches that are built for speed, not comfort. My partner suffers from back pain, so finds them uncomfortable, but smiles through the discomfort as the food is so good! Drinks ARE expensive (large Kirin is £5.20), so watch out for that one. The food, however, is fantastic! We haven't tried a huge number of dishes yet (we tend to stick to ones we know we like), but standouts are Spicy Squid, Lemon Chicken and Sambal King Prawn side dishes and King Prawn Chilli Noodles and China Town Roast Duck mains. The duck is melt-in-the-mouth tender and the best I've had anywhere. It comes with "duck sauce" - a blend of sweet soy and sesame oil. We always ask for a pot of this for the squid starter, as it goes well - and extra with the duck! My partner prefers her duck with noodles and although not on the menu, they are happy to prepare one specially. The only time we've ever had a problem was when a take-away Chilli Prawns had a huge excess of chilli (over 40 slices) and that the Prawn Toasts are a bit pricey for what you get (4 triangles) and not of the standard you'd expect. They bear a strong resemblance to M&S's standard ones, so may be a bought in product. If you've ever tried M&S's Baguette Prawn Toasts, this is the kind of quality I'd expect from Yippee (best prawn toasts money can buy!). That said, it's still a great place to eat and the food is very consistent!
