Yuu Kitchen is inspired by the fun and freshness of flavours from south-east Asia and the Pacific Rim.

Head Chef Jon de Villa - previously of Nobu London - has created a menu inspired by his Filipino heritage and travels across Asia. Expect soft pillowy Taiwanese bao buns, bursting with buttermilk chicken, Australian Wagyu or 7UP-braised pork belly. Savour an Hawaiian poke bowl or Japanese charcoal salmon tatami - using only sashimi grade fish. Devour Japanese sweet and sticky eggplant and a Vietnamese crispy tofu roll with some Thai chicken larb. Enjoy Wine, bubbles and beers on tap, or indulge in a range of Asian-inspired cocktails including the light and fresh Bubble Tea cocktails.

You’ll be sharing your high top table with other guests and sharing your dishes with your friends. We recommend to select at least 3-4 dishes per person (these are small plates) from different sections of the menu.

Funky and tasty selection of fusion dishes. Our group had a number of yummy shared dishes and everyone enjoyed the variety of flavours. We will come again! It does get noisy and our group did find it hard to chat with anyone further than beside them.

I liked the style of the restaurant and the service was great. The food was a bit his and miss though. Some dishes were excellent- the standout being the stick aubergine. The bao buns were a little disappointing apart from the chicken. Someone in the kitchen was a little heavy-handed with the wasabi and it swamped the taste of both the crab and the wagyu beef.

Yuu Kitchen is an amazing find in Shoreditch. Great Asian cuisine with many options to choose from which all proved delicious. Every bite tasted amazing! Next to the menu Yuu offers great service, amazing cocktails and a good list of sakes to choose from. Definitely will come back!

Interesting place. We tried a number of dishes and most of them where very nice, the spring rolls and the crazy pork scratching were particularly memorable.

A few were too sweet though, the pigs ears and chicken wings were good examples. Coupled with the ribs (which lent themselves to the sweet sticky coating), it made the meal a little unbalanced for our palates (and I was with 3 children)... The pigs ears would have been fantastic just salted and spicy.

Service was spot on.

Glad we went, though wouldn't necessarily make the journey again, it was out of our way.

What a great find! I took three colleagues out for dinner here - we had a great time! The team are warm, friendly personable and professional and the food is to die for. Zingy and flavourful small plates that pack a punch. I can't wait to return.

The soft shell crab bao is amazing!
