Yum Yum is a very good and much hyped Thai restaurant here in Stokey, with a nice cocktail bar on the side. Food is very nice, but due to the size of the place things can get a bit busy, and it seems waiting staff (aka Chinooks) have been trained to turn over customers as efficiently as possible.
The owner, Atique, is a genuinely nice guy though, and I sometimes wish they could just go back to the times when they occupied the smaller and much more intimate premises of what is now the bloody Foxtons on Church Street.

Local branch of a pizza chain, built on the ashes of the amazing original Brixton restaurant and its offspring (sold for an insane amount of money (£27.5m!) to publicly traded Fulham Shore in 2015). Another chain restaurant to follow food chains Whole Foods, Nandos, Whetherspoons, KFC and Foxlow into our hood.
Good luck competing with Il Bacio, Zaza Express and the other locals.
