“AN ASIAN FUSION GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This just has to be one of the best Asian restaurants in South Florida. Tucked away out of the Coral Gables limelight, four blocks from Miracle Mile yet only 300 feet from busy South Le Jeune Road, Filipino chef Johnson Teh turns out consistently amazing flavors at a remarkably low price. The room borders on the austere and the a/c on the chilly but both are compensated by the warmth of the servers' smiles. If I have a criticism it is the over-generous portions which limits the number of plates when sharing between only two of us dining but for a group greater than four I suggest there is no better Asian option in Miami: flavor and freshness rule an extensive menu and we have never left Yuga feeling other than extremely satisfied, with the food, the service and the check. What more does one ask of a restaurant?

“Intimate setting and amazing food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

If you are looking for flavorful asian cuisine in a small and intimate setting, this is the place. The service here is very personal and the staff is always eager to assist. The asian nachos are an excellent choice and have a unique flavor. The menu has options for everyone, and I have never been disappointed with anything I have eaten here. I have dined here three times and will be back for more.

“Delicious lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

The lunch menu offers a very good value. You get a fresh Sushi roll, a salad, a miso soup and then your main dish. The portions are generous. The food is fresh and tastes good. Desserts are excellent.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

I've eaten here quite a few times, and the food is always delicious, fresh and affordable. There are plenty of vegetarian options, too, which is a huge plus for us. The service is outstanding - we are can't stop marveling at how nice and relaxed everyone is, which is always great but definitely a pleasant surprise when dining in the Gables.
If you're looking for yummy Asian food and unpretentious service - this is absolutely the place for you!

“Horrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Don't waste your time here. This place has terrible service. They didn't even serve us water. When we ordered they brought out the food with the check and didn't even give us the opportunity to ask for a dessert. Don't bother coming here.
