Yum Yum 3


658 9th Ave. (bet. 46th & 47th St.)
Tel: 212-956-0639
Mon-Thurs & Sun: 11am-midnight, Fri & Sat: 11am-12:30am

Among the numerous restaurants along 9th Ave. by Restaurant Row you’ll find a recent addition to the South East Asian variety at the newly opened YUMYUM3 Thai and Vietnamese restaurant and adjoining cocktail bar. Techno and lounge music play in the background of this quintessentially urban exposed brick interior as plasma TVs and projections appear in high resolution on the walls. Influenced by a minimal Japanese interior and some items on the appetizers list, the menu consists mostly of curries, traditional Thai spicy salads (called yum), fried rice dishes and a variety of noodles. The original Yum Yum 1 is located around the corner along with Bangkok House, both connected to this five year Thai tradition sandwiched between the Theatre District and the West Side. Most customers tend to be locals, some tourists and Broadway staff and employees who enjoy promotions such as gift certificates for food and drinks after shows. Choose your preferred seating in the main dining area or a smaller cocktail bar and private party area next door. Some popular drinks include lychee sangria and sake bomb among a variety of cocktails.
