The visual appeal was something to experience. The ordinary was cooked and presented in an extraordinary way. Imagine dumplings presented as miniature hedgehogs and roasted whole garlic as lotus blossoms but which tasted like preserved plums. Then there were the paint brushes you could eat because they were actually meat floss. My group and I were on a tasting menu... More

Our experience at Yu's was not a good one. We were seated in a room right next to the bathroom, and we were the only ones in the room. This is not a problem. The 9 cold dishes were already on the table when we arrived. Before we tasted all the cold dishes, the next course was brought out. Then... More

Went on 7/11 with recommendations from the web and by the hotel we stayed at. Whilst it gave us a respite from the numbing spice from the street food, certain items served were rather forgettable save from the fact that we took picture of the 18 courses + 9 small cool dish served at the start of the meal. it...

The Good: The experience is worth going for. Super delicious dishes. The Bad: Need an update soon! A bit pricy.

We saw Yu's Family Kitchen featured on Discovery Chanel's "Bizarre Foods" and decided that we would have to check it out. It exceeded all of our expectations! This place is reservations only, so few days before you eat, you have to go in to make a deposit and talk about any food you don't want to eat or have allergies... More

the hype of this restaurant has you looking for something amazing but unfortunately does not live up to expectations. food was good as was presentation and surroundings but just did not come up to the expectations that surround the outlet.

This restaurant is a bit different from a typical Sichuanese restaurant and if you only have one meal in Sichuan I would not recommend it to be here. This is fine dining in a region of China where the locals pile up spice and guts on tables in noisy dining rooms and you taste and absorb pungent, fiery aromas until... More

Yu's Family Kitchen is probably the best restaurant in Chengdu. Unfortunately, that's not that high a standard. A few of the courses were very imaginatively plated and tasty but others were not up to that standard. One of their specialties is Shark Fin Soup, which we didn't get. It might be really good but I'm not about to eat it.... More

We came to Sichuan (from UK) on a food pilgrimage. We had to visit Yu's. It was a bit of a challenge to get a reservation because they require a cash deposit. But it was worth it. The food was as good and imaginative as a Japanese Kaiseki in Kyoto but with a Sichuan twist. It was not all fiery... More
