We enjoyed a nice dinner with a range of mainly Chinese dishes and limited sushi offered. The restaurant is located on the ground floor and it can offer a quick lunch or dinner without many formalities.

The menu is a mix of asian and western dishes, seemingly to please the taste of everyone, but I found it incoherent. The asian dishes were ok, but lacked authenticity. They were "out-of-a-Suzi Wan-pack" quality and lacked fresh herbs (coriander, thai basil, mint leaves were absent).
The dessert was very good and copious.
The decor is ok, but the fake aquarium reminded of a popular computer screensaver, not of an actual reef with fish.
The service was basic, and the staff untrained. Part of the staff did not speak German, so it was fortunate that we spoke English.

War vor 2 Jahren im alten Yu, war eine hervorragende Erfahrung. Heute siehts anders aus. Dies ist mein 1. negatives Feedback auf Tripadvisor, leider hat es dieser Betrieb mehr als verdient. Weiss gar nicht wo anfangen... Bei Ankunft brauchte es die Augen 2er Mitarbeiter um uns auf der Liste zu finden. Zum Aperitif wurde uns "Bier, Wasser oder Wein" angeboten. Die Vorspeise liess 30-45 Minute auf sich warten. Der Service pushte während dessen den Weinservice, füllte mind. 2dl ein, bei Gläsern wonerst 1 Schluck rausgetrunken wurde. Ein paar Shrimp-Chips hätten gereicht. Nach dem abräumen wurde uns fälschlicherweise noch eine Vorspeise gebracht welche wir "ohne Schinken" bestellt hätten. Nette Überraschung. Gläser wurde beim Nachschenken am Bauch gefasst. Bei der Bestellung einer 2. Flasche Wein (teurer) gab sich das Servicepersonal vor unseren Augen ein "high five". Schockierend. Der Service wollte sich zudem vergewissern, ob wir wirklich ein 2. Glas brauchen - bei einem anderen Wein. Da lief es mir eiskalt den Rücken runter. Wartezeit auf den Hauptgang, wiederum Ewigkeit. Es wurde noch Mineral bestellt. Siehe da Upselling, ohne zu Fragen die teurere Marke. Hauptgang war klasse, nur die Hälfte der Teller wurde beim Abräumen vergessen, Wartezeit ca. 20min. Service unaufmerksam, ausser es gab darum zu verkaufen. Dessert war unterirdisch und zu sehr schwer wenn man das Tastingmenü wählt. Es wurde sich währen dem Essen nie erkundigt ob alles in Ordnung sei. Selbst wenn sich die Geschäftsführung bei mir meldet und mir ein Menü offeriert, ich setze KEINEN Fuss mehr in dieses Restaurant. Da ziehe ich das Meridiano vor.

Hiding inside the Casino, not easy to find, has good food with a definite Thai influence. Watch out the price range is entirely wrong, more correct the 40 to 90 range.
Two entrees, two main dishes, two desserts and sparkling water scored 120 CHF.
