Reviews of interest

  • Bruno Verjus (2012) “Pas de méprise, Yoom n’est pas un restaurant chinois, mais un lieu sensuel où les arts de la table et des mets se conjuguent au bonheur des mangeurs…”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2012) “Rien à redire à l’affaire qui, dans son genre exotico-mondain, assure un très habile picorage…”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “In the best Asian dim-sum places, each mouthful is meant to be a brilliantly balanced gastronomic spectrum of distinct tastes and textures; at Yoom, they all started to taste the same after a while.”
  • Chroniques du Plaisir (2010) “Côté assiette donc, c’est plutôt bien réalisé et franchement dépaysant. Autre point positif, un décor néo-asiatique chic, paravents ajourés et banquettes turquoises, très agréable.”
  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2010) “J’ai jeté mon dévolu sur le menu déjeuner à 14,90 € et je dois dire que j’ai été très agréablement surpris : 6 dim sum  exhalant des parfums et des textures à 10 000 km des bouchées douteuses du chinois du coin.”
  • Caroline Mignot (2010) “Un look so charming et travaillé qui plaît à la clientèle du midi rue des Martyrs. Accueil gentil, un peu pressé pour prendre la commande…Dans le cadre du menu à 14,90 €, voici le premier étage de panier vapeur, dont le délicieux poulet-satay aux accents de curry au premier plan…Les autres aux crevettes se défendent bien aussi. Du moelleux, de la fraîcheur, des parfums délicats…”

5 Replies to “YOOM”

  1. If one needs a good initiation to the perverse colonialist art of no-dim sum and anti-chinese food, Yoom is indeed not a bad place.

  2. As I commented on Caroline Mignot’s site I went and thought it was pretty charmless.
    One dimsum (with cumbawa i.e. kafir lime leaves) was honestly unpleasant (in addition to being totally unauthentic). I very much doubt that any item had been prepared less than two days earlier as everything tasted mostly bland and dry-ish). Sorry!

  3. Two readers have responded via Twitter (@parisbymouth) about Yoom, saying “I heard that it was terrible from my friend who is a dumpling connoisseur” and “The more I went there, the less it was convincing…”

    Has anyone else been?
