The Kimchi is NOT veggie ! - Edit

I went there today again for the 3rd time and asked for another veggie dish with no egg and Kimchi on the side as I always do. The lady told my the Kimchi had fish sauce in it and I was quite choked because I had it several times before and they told me it was vegan ! So be careful, there are actually only 3 dishes that can be made 100% vegan. The food is good but i pointed out that fish sauce is definitely not vegetarian nor vegan (although it comes with EVERY veggie dish), and the waitress was really surprised that fish is not vegetarian. So be careful !

Pros: good & fresh food

Cons: They don't actually know what veggie is, pricey

Good food - Edit

I went in for a quick bite on the way to the movies and was not disappointed. Maybe not many vegan options, but the staff is friendly and quick, and the food is good! Not expensive

Pros: Friendly staff, quick service

Cons: none

Informal Korean Restaurant - Edit

The vegan options weren't marked on the menu, but the very friendly owner said that they would be able to veganize a number of dishes on the menu, so that made the vegan choice much wider.
We had marinated spinach with sesame and gimbab (without egg) starters and Dubu Bokum main courses. Everything fresh and delicious.

Pros: Very Friendly staff, Happy to veganize where possible

Cons: No vegan dessert..., Vegan options not listed, you have to ask

Korean Food with just an okay taste. - Edit

I get lunch here sometimes for lack of vegan options in the area. I LOVE Korean food, it is my favourite food right next to Indian food. The food at YamYam is fresh and they serve homemade (not premade) dumplings and Kimchi. I can't say I'm particularly impressed as far as taste goes here, like most Asian food in Berlin, it is quite bland when compared to the same food on offer in other major cities. But at least the food at YamYam is a little bit spicy, if I can say anything about the taste. I wonder if they even use Gochujangyong gochugaru...The chili they use tastes a bit more like cayenne. I wish they would stop trying to cater to German tastebuds and offer a more authentic taste experience - I really miss Korean food! Service is okay. It is very busy at lunchtime. Prices are fair. Nice portions.

Pros: Convenient location, Fresh and homemade, Nice portion sizes, fair prices

Cons: Mildly authentic, caters to German taste
