With a name that means fish in Mandarin, Yú Cuisine makes it clear what its forte is, and that’s seafood in all its forms. Catering to local tastes, the restaurant offers favourites like Hong Kong Aberdeen Chilli Crab, Pepper Crab and Butter Cream King Prawns, but also offers other Chinese classics like Peking duck and roast meat, and a dim sum menu during the afternoons.
Quite unlike the usual Chinese restaurant, the decor in this split-level restaurant is more in the style of a swanky nightspot, with an electric blue and white lighting scheme and black leather chairs, although you can still expect to see the tanks of live seafood. Food presentation is similarly slick—instead of the regular bamboo baskets, the dim sum arrive in black lacquered trays or square wooden boxes. For fans of Chinese cuisine, dining at Yú is definitely an indulgence worth having, with the excellent food, good service and spectacular views of Marina Bay.
