Yum Bar & Restaurant offers affordable, high quality and locally sourced produce, three highly-sought after ingredients that all combine to create a fantastic dining experience.
With several special offers, an extensive drinks menu off hot beverages, soft drinks, milkshakes and alcoholic drinks, along with a range of delicious meals, Yum is the place to be in Belfast. Situated in the busy University area of Stranmillis, not far from Botanic Gardens, this venue offers countless contemporary classics, often with an idiosyncratic twist from the close-knit team of chefs.
The simple but effective decor only adds to the ambiance
With breakfast, lunch and dinner on offer, there is something for everyone, with vegetarians, vegans and wheat and gluten free all accommodated for. It is, however, perhaps the relaxing atmosphere provided by the helpful and enthusiastic team at Yum that compliment the food to generate a truly worthwhile experience, with the spacious and simple décor combining with the pleasant music to great effect to cater for everyone.
These comfortable and classy surroundings can often provide a much-needed respite from either the hustle and bustle of university life, or indeed before a night of action at the Lyric theatre, which is situated just minutes away from the restaurant. Moreover, with a Christmas menu soon coming into the fore, along with the possibility to enjoy other celebrations such as communion or graduation.
The experienced staff and ownership pride themselves on providing excellent food in a friendly and peaceful setting, with an endless list of flavours and tastes in the mix. In an area filled with bars and restaurants, Yum stands out and combines the two to produce a much-needed touch of sophistication while maintaining very affordable prices.
