Located at the perfect spot, love how the western building with a little bit of asian twist in it. Food were delicious, mapo tofu was spicy but perfect with the rice, soup dumplings are slightly dried , i meant less juicy than I expected. But the filling was tender and good nice with the vinegar. In the end we have add on the duck pancakes with taro, something i havent try before but the combination are make sense for Chinese dishes.
Sure will be back another time ☺️

Great Chinese setting and very stylish, food is cooked perfectly and authentic. Favourites are the dumplings and wontons off the entre menu, and from the mains the shanghai chicken and mushroom noodles was the most flavoursome. If in the Canterbury area I'd recommend.
This restaurant, situated in the heart of Canterbury boasts of a Shanghai chef who has mastered the art of cooking the perfect beef brisket and slow-cooked pork hock.
The aroma that emanates from the kitchen is a treat for the senses. Even before my meal arrived, I could smell the fragrant spices and herbs that were being used to prepare my food. When the dishes arrived at the table, it was as if my tastebuds had suddenly woken up! The beef brisket was tender and juicy, and had a depth of flavour that left me speechless. The slow-cooked pork hock was just as delicious, with the meat simply falling off the bone.
The atmosphere of this restaurant is simply enchanting. The decor is beautifully done and transports you back in time. From the walls adorned with vintage posters to the furniture, every detail has been tastefully and thoughtfully considered. It's the perfect place to enjoy a romantic dinner or to catch up with friends over drinks.
The staff at this restaurant were extremely friendly and attentive, making sure that every need was taken care of. They were happy to provide recommendations on what to order from the menu, ensuring that I had the best dining experience possible.
Overall, this Shanghai-style restaurant offers an unforgettable culinary adventure that is a must-try for any food lover. Every dish is crafted with the utmost care and attention, and the flavours are simply bursting with authenticity and tradition. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a truly unique and delightful dining experience.

It was great food really was but I think you needed to add salt to the fried rice and the tofu dish as they were very under seasoned. Regarding the sweet and sour pork and seafood combination both where great but the sauce on both where way to thick, gluey almost either way to much thickener or way over reduced. The sizzling steak was perfect. I was looking for lemon chicken but you don’t see it. Prices where way to steep for 4 dishes a rice and a starter it was $170 oh and 1 beer 2 soft drinks. Would I go back ummm probably not it’s way to expensive for food that is only 3 stars.

Had a great lunch experience at Yu Restaurant - the Nasi Goreng was fresh and hit the spot for a fulfilling bite! Would definitely recommend.
