The Yum Yum Ninja restaurant and courtyard were conceived as capturing the essence of South East Asian design to create a fun, stylish and entertaining environment to eat some of Brighton’s most exciting food.
The courtyard captures the hustle and bustle of an Asian night market; enticing customers with suspended festoon lighting, fluttering banners and parasols clustered round groups of tables. A mobile street stall creates clouds of steam and fragrant scents of sizzling barbequed skewers filtering out into the street.
The ground floor dining area is conceived as a flexible series of spaces offering customers a choice of dining environments; be it long shared oak tables, or a series of private dining shoji screen rooms.
These 3 private dining rooms have been designed to offer a range of refined spaces. Individual tables of can be reconfigured to create a single long table of up to 28 diners – offering real flexibility and opportunity for private functions at the restaurant.
The public dining areas are conceived as more bustly open spaces with timber clad walls and beams of chiaroscuro light flooding onto the walls and tables through a series of vintage bird cages.
The eclectic first floor bar combines Asian themes with Brighton’s oriental heritage and its feeling of an exciting urban playground, to create a truly unique bar. Dark moody spaces are given drama by soaring walls of jute rope and an array of glowing luminescent lanterns floating through the space like jelly fish through a sea of infinite blue.
