‘Lah Gone Collingwood’ – Farewell Collingwood

Yes Friends, after nearly 5 years we have taken the big step to further streamline our business by closing the doors on our branch on Smith Street Collingwood.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time on the strip and being amongst some of Melbourne’s more popular dineries.

However, with our young family and our other businesses in the Inner West it has become a bigger challenge for Chef Lylah and myself to fully support our really wonderful staff in Collingwood  on a daily basis.

We would all like to thank you so much for your fantastic patronage in Collingwood and we very much look forward to seeing you at Yim Yam Thai Laos in Yarraville and Ascot Vale.

New Lunch Menu in Collingwood

Please go to our Collingwood Menu page on the right and see our delicious, varied and quick lunch menu.

Many of our Patrons and Friends come almost daily to enjoy our $7.50 Quick Lunch Daily Special (Dine In of extra 50c for Take Away). This special dish changes daily.

And so for variety, taste and value, see you at Yim Yam Collingwood.

Yim Yam Moonee Ponds Closes.

Dear Patrons and Friends of Yim Yam,

After 7 years of happy and tasty times opposite Moonee Ponds Station, we have recently sold our venue at 12 Margaret Street Moonee Ponds. Our last night of trading was Saturday 13 December. Our intention is to to focus our effort and energy on our nearby venue at 415 Mt Alexander Road Ascot Vale, and continue to provide you with the finest quality and authentic cuisine ‘from both sides of the Mekong RIver’..

We wish to thank our patrons and supporters for your fantastic custom and look forward to serving you for many years to come at our other venues.

Warms Regards for the season.

Lylah and Guy
