Frozen yogurt or froyos are my latest darlings - I have been craving for them as an after-lunch dessert almost every single day. Yami Yogurt has been around for the longest time and is also one of the cheapest froyo shops in Singpaore. For $2.30, you can satisfy your froyo craving without feeling guilty.

The yogurt at Yami Yogurt is creamy, neutral, and not as tart as other yogurts. On its own, the orginal froyo’s a little bland. But that’s why you top it up with fruits and cereals for flavor and crunch, and it's the perfect munch! I personally like the peach flavoured one the best for its sweet, fuzzy and refreshing taste. A word of caution: the service sucks so don't expect happy, cheery staffs.

Though I doubt that it's as healthy as it claims to be, I think Yami Yogurt is well-worth the calories without burning a hole in the pocket.

The only yogurt store I'd visit repeatedly. I first got introduced to Yami when I was just strolling about with some friends at Orchard. One of them then wanted to get a tub, I repeat, a TUB. She says that's how good she thinks it is and how she likes it so much!

Then, I was rather taken aback because in the past, I can't really differentiate between all the yogurt stores, they simply taste the same but all my friends were going on about which tastes milkier, which is more pricey, which one has more of that ice-cream texture.

My first taste of Yami, had me going "Whoopwhoop!". It was really good, much better than my previous tries at other frozen yogurt stalls. It isn't really of the ice-cream consistency, but I love the milky taste it brings. Price-wise, not one bit over-the-roof!

Their Peach flavor rocks my socks!

Yami Yogurt has been around for ages and is a part of my childhood memories. It was probably the first popular yogurt chain in Singapore.

In the recent years, many other yogurt chains have sprouted up and I have to admit that these new chains' yogurts are smoother and sweeter. However, I have compared Yami Yogurt's prices with a popular yogurt chain's store and Yami Yogurt is still more affordable.

If a simple, slightly granular, good ol' fashioned yogurt treat is your thing, head on down to Yami Yogurt. Its yogurt is less sweet compared to those from the new yogurt stores and I believe Yami Yogurt has been around for good reason.

For me, their Peach Delight is a healthy and delicious treat as well as a walk down memory lane.

I've always been a big fan of frozen yoghurt but somehow Yami Yoghurt is not as great as all the hype I've been hearing from my friends. In fact, it is rather expensive as 4.50 for a medium sized cup is really not that worth it. Portions are really small and the service at most outlets is often really bad. This is in contrast to other yoghurt shops, where the staff often greet customers with a smile and most of the time, servings from other stalls tend to be much larger.

All in all, Yami yoghurt is really not a place to go to if you are starving and desperate for something filling to eat! I would strongly advice you to spend your money elsewhere.

The yogurt here is great. Unlike normal yogurt, the ones sold here have a sort of nice ice-cream like taste to them. Combine that with the large variety of toppings to choose from, and you have a tasty snack to help blur the time between lunch and dinner. The other plus side is that it's yogurt meaning it's healthy so I can eat as much of it as I like without feeling guilty.

Now for the downsides.... The pricing. It is rather ridiculous. For such a small cup, I pay as much as up to $3. Add in the toppings and the price raises by about 80 cents to $1.50. At this rate, it is much cheaper to just buy the toppings individually from NTUC and sprinkle it on the yogurt yourself. I love coming here, but the prices really put me off.

I believe Yami Yogurt is a go-getter and definitely a promising one when it comes to its nutritious benefits. Being a Yami Yogurt virgin, I had mine a couple of days back as a substitute for my cravings for an ice cream, and I chose the smallest portion which is the regular cup of ‘natural’ flavour and had fresh blueberries as my toppings. It has this certain je ne sais quoi in every spoonful of the yogurt that simply bursts with freshness – light and nutty. If you are trying to lose that extra weight or just basically making healthier choices in satisfying your sweet tooth, I believe going for Yami Yogurt would be best. My advice to you is that choose the 'natural' flavour instead of the other options of flavours because it does not contain much artificial flavouring or sugar as the rest. Also, consider toppings such as Walnut, Almond, Granola, Golden Raisins, Mixed Nuts and Sunflower/Pumpkin Seeds or even fresh fruits instead of the sweet stuff for a healthier cup of 'Yami' goodness. Overall, the fact that it is low in fat and highly nutritious, it is definitely a good way to splurge and indulge, making this on the top list of my ‘Guilty-Free-Pleasures’.

Of course they get a 5 for the food rating.. How bad can froyo get?
Well what I really do not like about yami yogurt is the small serving size. Like it just takes a ravenous me + a tablespoon to finish the yogurt in 2 bites! no kid! They swirl the yogurt in such a way whereby the center is empty. I know, bummer.
Other than that, it is pretty much similar to other yogurt stalls like frolick and yoguru.
I know I know, what a Singaporean. So cheapo. But really though, why pay the approx same amount for less yogurt when you can get it from yoguru/frolick?

I'd only eat Yami yogurt when I have no choice- froyo crisis or something.

I don't know what the froyo craze is about, really. I do like Yami yoghurt, but I find it too expensive given the small serving size. The size of the smallest foam cup makes you think you will get a scoop that fills the cup, but in reality, it doesn't.

The taste of the plain yoghurt is good, nonetheless. My favourite pairing is the regular yoghurt with granola, to give myself illusions of how healthy it is. (Deep down, I know it can't be true. Low calories are still calories!!)

If Yami Yoghurt just changed the size of the cup, I would probably be more willing to pay for it, even if I know it's just visual trickery. They should probably also focus on expanding the range of flavours and toppings available, which other froyo chains offer. Will consumers really buy Yami yoghurt just because of the health benefits?

Yami yogurt is really yummy. The yogurt is really cold and solid. It is handmade and taste really different from those that you can buy from supermarkets. There are a lot of flavours to choose from too. The price is quite expensive, a small cup would cost about $3.

However I find the ingredients is really fresh and sweet, freshness is guaranteed. Yogurt also aids in the digestion thus it is good to buy better quality one. Not only does it satisf your sense of taste, it is also good for your intestines. As for the toppings, you have a wide selection of nuts, fruits, cereals to choose from. Because there are only a few tables allocated for the shop, you normally need to carry the yogurt around and there will be no place to sit down.

Yami Yoghurt has always been my go-to place for healthier choice desserts. Times when I want to avoid eating high calories ice creams or desserts; I would always opt for Yami yoghurt. The good thing is, it is available almost everywhere- from heartland malls to urban shopping areas.

Also, the yoghurt always tastes so refreshing and I don’t feel guilty even after consuming the entire take home pack by myself! It is unlike other yoghurts which are soggy in texture and has a very strong taste in their flavours. Yami Yoghurt is generally more solid and the flavours are just nice but not overwhelming. I will always order the jumbo cup (mixed peach and natural flavour!) to share with my partner.

But one downside thing I’ve to point out about this yoghurt shop is that their staff can be rather impolite in most of the stores I frequent (especially Ion). The staff are impatient when taking orders, give rude replies and almost never put a smile on their face. As much as I love Yami Yoghurt, their lousy service is deterring me from visiting there more often. They definitely need to brush up on their service.
