Modern innovation meets classic Chinese cuisine at this award-winning restaurant
When your dad has run a string of successful Chinese restaurants for several decades, it’s safe to say you have a head start when it comes to hospitality.
This was the case for Yu brother Vinny and Victor, who inherited their father’s passion for fine dining at an early edge. Their Alderley Edge restaurant Yu reflects years of travelling the globe in search of new techniques, collaborating with the UK’s leading chefs and distilling a knowledge of Chinese cooking passed down through family generations.
All of which makes Yu something very special. Its distinctive blend of traditional Chinese cuisine and modern innovation has won several prestigious awards - including the coveted three-tier Pagoda Trophy from Legacy of Taste - and it continues to rank amongst the country’s finest.
An eager Confidential went down to film some dishes and can confirm they taste as good as they look: from the lobster dim sum to the sumptuous chocolate and miso fondant with vanilla custard...
A lot of people aren’t aware, but Yu take corporate bookings too. If you’re after somewhere to wine and dine that tricky client, you can’t do much better than this: luxurious interiors, award-winning food and a fine drinks menu too. They even offer bespoke menus and private hire.
Like the finer things in life? Treat yourself to the Yu experience.
You won’t regret it.
