“Another disappointing meal in Jerusalem”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Wonton soup? Not really. Salty soup, goey wonton. Spring roll dripping with oil. Pasty dim sum with questionable fillings. Indifferent service. Not my idea of a good Chinese meal.

“Great Atmosphere, Pricey Menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Ate there several times before, Yesterday returned with Family , 11 all together, for Dinner. Menu has been changed - new dishes and new updated prices - more expensive. Service was slow even though it was the middle of the week. Salads were tasty, Main courses also. Sushi is too expensive and so are the deserts in my view. Atomosphere and location is great.

“Good not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Eaten there over last few years, and loved it, but this week's return and newer menu less wonderful. My mother's sesame chicken salad only okay, my lemongrass chicken soup overpowering, my husband's wonton soup underwhelming, my son the sushi lover actually left over the TNT. Fish and chips was terrific tho. So, not sure if restaurant was experiencing an off night, or there is dip in current quality. For $200, for one course only for party of five and no alcohol, and two shared deserts, I expected better.

“RYU, Jerusalem, Israel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Being a picky eater, I was concerned about eating in Israel. I had no need to feel this wasy. RYU, on Jerusalem's Emik Rafa'am Street was wonderful. It serves kosher Asian food - we started with
a chicken liver egg roll- which was delicious, and got better. For me that meant a steak, and for my wife it meant sushi. The food was great, the service wonderful. I highly recommend RYU.
