“Great little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

On a recent visit to Malta we stayed at St. Julian’s and went along to the Yuu Chinese restaurant on our second night. Yuu is an unpretentious place, on the main road leading out of Spinola Bay in the direction of Paceville. You go up a steep flight of stairs to the small restaurant on the first floor. I had beef in black bean sauce, and my friend had crispy chicken in lemon sauce. We shared vegetable fried rice as an accompaniment. Both meals were succulent and delicious. There were quite a few other customers, some of whom appeared to be regulars.

We were sufficiently impressed by this little restaurant that we went back before the end of our holiday. On this occasion I chose the duck in orange sauce – highly recommended.

Yuu will not appear in most of the guide books as a recommended place to eat in St. Julian’s, but if you like good quality Chinese food at a reasonable price with attentive service you won’t go far wrong here. The menu is a little limited, but what they serve is top class. The service is excellent, and the restaurant is run by a feisty and attractive Chinese lady who jokes with chats to her customers as if she has known them for ages.

Very good.

“Best Chinese we've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Took us a few days to find this restaurant as it can be easily missed. Look for a little sushi bar called 'Gochi' and it's opposite and up!
We ordered a set banquet for 2, which consisted of spring rolls, chicken wings and BBQ ribs to start and then sweet and sour pork, chicken with cashew nuts and pineapple, seafood fried rice and fried noodles with ham for the mains.
I don't like cashew nuts so I asked if we could change the dish for another. The host could not have been more accommodating. Nothing was a problem.
The food was extremely fresh and hot. All the food is cooked to order and home-made by a Chinese chef.
Every little detail is thought about from having tooth picks ready for you, to swapping the plates around on the tea light burner.
Only down side, the rose wine was a little expensive, and is not served by the glass.
Would certainly recommend and encourage diners to go along to this cute and very authentic little Chinese. You will not be disappointed.

“New Year's Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

This Chinese restaurant is small but welcoming. Food was good especially the beef was so tender and mouth watering, the green tea was lovely. The prices is quite expensive, maybe because it was a New Year's lunch. We might come back again but first we check the prices. Happy New Year everybody.

“Best Chinese in Malta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

This small restaurant is tucked on top of a clothes shop and can be easily overlooked. Yet when you step in this restaurant you experience the authentic Chinese experience in all aspects. The furniture, decor and music will definitely give you a taste of China as soon as you step into the restaurant. The host has personally selected and imported all the furniture and decor from China so both the decor and furniture are reminiscent of China. Sitting by the winder will also give you a view to the main road in Saint Julian's.

Yumei is the lady who runs the restaurant and she does her utmost to ensure that all her customers are absolutely happy. She has a charming personality and always provides a service with a smile. Needless to say the service provided is excellent.

The food is carefully and freshly prepared, ensuring that everything is of high quality. Even the sauces are carefully prepared by the host herself. Needless to say every single dish is absolutely mouthwatering. Furthermore the duck is a speciality for this restaurant. To top it off everything is fairly priced. I have visited this restaurant over three years ago and since then I have always found the service and food to be impeccable.
