Square Meal Review of Yum Yum Ninja ?

It's hard to believe that this funky pan-Asian restaurant is related to classy seafood specialist Riddle & Finns next door. Set back from the street with its own Chinese lantern-lit courtyard, Yum Yum Ninja is a kooky temple to the Far East with wooden birdcages, paper-clad shoji screens and a noisy first-floor 'izakaya' cocktail bar. The crowded menu is a mash up of South-East Asian 'tapas' with sashimi and yakitori lining up alongside dim sum, Thai aubergine salad and Korean chilli squid. Slick staff deliver dishes to the communal tables as and when they are ready – although the plates (and bills) can mount up quickly. Not that you'll mind after trying the saké tasting flight or an Asian-themed cocktail such as the royal ume (umeshu plum liqueur shaken with cherry syrup and topped with sparkling wine).

It was the restaurant’s name which was the cause for concern- it seemed a bit gimmicky. However on finding out that the people behind the venue had good form in Brighton, with the prize-winning Due South and seafood specialists Riddle and Finns already in their stable, my interest was certainly piqued. Finding the place was not easy as it is tucked away in a hidden courtyard, but once located it was clearly an attractive space with seating inside and out. The menu majors in classics of Asian cuisine with tapas style and larger dishes...
