Yu Cuisine is one of the elegant Chinese restaurant that grace Marina Bay Sands with its presence. The restaurant itself served Cantonese cuisine with modern innovations in its dishes and also presentation. We actually only come to know about this place from a friend of a friend that is not Singaporean. Although I have been to Marina Bay Sands for a few times, I always try to avoid this place whenever possible.   The decoration of Yu Cuisine is modern with aquatic theme. Considering they named the restaurant after the word fish in Chinese, it is not surprising that the decoration of the restaurant follow the same theme. Quite cool and impressive actually.   So how is the food? There were more than 10 adults, so we manage to order quite a few dishes. However, there are a few dishes that really catch our eyes, such as:   Queen Shumai, it is a combination of pork and prawn. For a twist, they left the tail of the prawn still intact. The pork is tender and juicy, while the prawn is fresh and springy.   Signature Golden Lava Custard Bun, the bun soft with egg golden colour. When you break the bun, the custard just ooze out from the bun inviting you to savour the excellent combination of salty sweetness of the fillings. Two thumbs up!!   Crispy aromatic duck. The whole duck was well-seasoned, the deep frying resulted in a crispy texture on the skin but still giving you meat that is very moist, tender and juicy. COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEF FOR HIS EXCELLENT FRYING TECHNIQUE!   Stir fry beef with black pepper, the beef nicely coated with fragrant black pepper. It is tender, juicy and close to melting in your mouth.   A notable mention is the Dinosaur Rice Roll, named due to sheer gigantic size and audacious creativity. Fried dough (You Tiao) is filled with vegetables that are similar to popiah fillings, wrapping it around with cheong fun. It is then topped with pork floss, spring onion and drizzle with light soya sauce. A definite must-try dish!   If you need something to really fill your stomach, the fried rice or noodle here is quite good. Their fried rice with seafood and XO sauce, have a good wok hei. Each grain of the rice firm and loose, and the XO sauce has that kick that really open up your appetite. Their dan dan noodle have thin, loose, springy texture which nicely absorb the broth.

Service here is excellent. The staff is friendly and efficient. They top up you tea and clear the plates when they needed to. If you need something, you can easily get their attention.   Overall, we have a good experience dining in Yu Cuisine. The price of the food here is targeted towards the patrons of MBS, so expect to pay a little bit more then the Five Star Chinese Restaurant. We will not purposely make a trip there to dine, however we won't mind stopping by in Yu Cuisine if we are at MBS one of this day. Cheers!!!

Poor service!

My friends and I dined at the champagne bar on Saturday evening, and ordered beers along with a couple of side dishes (fries and chicken wrap) with the service staff. While the beers came quite quickly, I had to remind the service staff on three separate occasions (over a 45-minute wait) of our outstanding order of side dishes, and each of those times, was reassured that the order will be looked into.

Our fries finally arrived at the hour mark, but the chicken wrap (and another order of chicken wings which we ordered subsequently as the long wait worked up our appetite) was missing from the order. After pressing the service staff for an explanation, the staff realized that the side order was not registered in the system. It was another 15 minutes before we got the order delivered.

If that was not bad enough, a person whom we assumed was the bar manager openly reprimanded the staff who got our order messed up, and used our table to do an on-the-job training (the table was not set and proper cutlery was not served). Wasn't a pleasant experience at all. Despite all the rave reviews, it was a massive disappointment.

Good Warm Dimsum

I have always walked past this blue restaurant but never had a chance to enter.   I like the idea that they changed their dimsum menu every season. Even though some may find the choices rather limited, but well there is still the ala carte lunch/dinner menu which has many tempting offerings. For details : http://dairycream.blogspot.sg/2012/10/yu-cuisine.html
 
Must Try-Signature chilli crab tart.

Don't be deceive by the looks. The spicy warm sg chilli crab filling just flows once you take a bite. The tart shell is crispy but not oily and there is no trace of any sogginess.

Trio Eggs Rabbit dumpling
A savoury dish filled with century egg and some mixed vegetables. The skin is too thick so even though it may be cute looking but this is not worth ordering.

Steam spare ribs and glass noodle basket.

Traditional chicken feet in BBQ sauce.

Shredded roast duck sesame pastry
A dark horse of the day.

Spicy duck meat filling with crispy Chinese pastry skin. The skin has many layers but not oily. A good alternative to our usual char siew puff or char siew bao( they are on the menu too)

Mango with prawns black sesame roll
Crispy deep fried prawn drizzled with some green mayonnaise that is definitely not wasabi mayo.

Dinosaur rice roll that is drizzled with some special sauce with spring onions

As highly recommended by other bloggers, this one is indeed another star by its huge dinosaur size. Good value for $$.The interior consists of deep fried fritter and turnips. Do not shy away from ordering this even though it is deep fried as they are not greasy at all. The diff textures of this dish paired with the sauce makes it taste heavenly.

great food and great service

i never ever tire of coming back here to eat. i think the food even beats what you can find at east coast park, and costs about the same. the servers are also in general, professional and courteous like those you find at fine dining chinese restaurants. i must have come back for more than 5 times now.

highly recommend the rich man's fried rice, roast pork and the salted egg yolk prawn. did i mention their pre-meal snack is this delectable fried fish skin?

quality Chinese cuisine

Located at Marina Bay Sands, the table settings, with its shiny feel, made me feel like I was going into some "ah beng" cultured dining destination. All that was missing was the disco music to go along with the vibe.

That aside, I found the food to be quite good. I started with the roasted duck, the pork belly and the char siu ($28). The items came out to be what one would expect in any roast meat stall - nothing much to shout about here.

For something lighter, I tried the Eggwhite Crabmeat ($16), which had fluffy pieces of egg white with a slightly seafood finish caused by the crab. Nice comfort food.

Ended my meal with the Fried Rice ($22). The wok hei created a good balance in the dish, and the rice had a good balance of dryness.

One thing to note about the food here is that the portion sizes tend to be quite large, so be prepared to share. What I ordered above (all in small portions) can feed three to the brim.
