Yu Joy has a traditional Chinese restaurant decor with a bright atmosphere that is full of energy.
Yu Joy serves regular Chinese dishes that diners would expect from a Chinese restaurant. A choice from the Chinese barbecue selection starts off a great meal, ranging from roasted suckling pig and Peking duck to roasted goose. Another interesting choice would be deep fried oysters in strawberry sauce - crispy on the outside, but filled with the mushy oyster-texture on the inside, with a hint of sweet strawberry scent. The restaurant’s signature dishes include stir-fried fresh chicken balls with Szechuan chilli, and braised softened pomelo skin with shrimp roe. Starting with the first dish, although not actually chicken balls, but rather chicken strips, it is a combination of mixed chilii and Szechuan sauce. Although not a spectacular dish, it is a nice complement to a side of rice. The second dish comes with an interesting sensation. With the pomelo skin softened over a matter of days, it absorbs the strong taste of the dish that spreads within one’s mouth as the skin melts away. Desserts include bird’s nest soups and deep-fried puff with honey. Flakey puffs with honey and ground peanuts and sesame seeds end the meal nicely.
A handful of reds and whites, as well as non-alcoholic options such as orange juice, and soda.
Servers are tentative and polite.
Dining at this restaurant is economical costing approximately $700 for dinner for two (excluding wine).
