Yugen redefines dining after dark. A promise of an experience where food, drink, and music continue well into the night. A subterranean setting with a refined industrial feel, offering dishes and beverages influenced by the cultural richness of Asia. Tradition met with the intuition of a contemporary flair.

    Upon arrival we were greeted and made to feel at ease. It was me and my girlfriend’s 1 year anniversary and they acknowledged that and that was really nice of them to ask about it. The overall service was amazing and at a high level, our waitress was super helpful and nice, she gave us some recommendations and ran us through the menu and even recommended some cocktail options. The food was 10/10 super flavourful and delicious.

    The ambience is very beautiful, but food is either too salty or too bland. Doesn’t match the vibe.

    From the moment you walk in…you are immediately welcomed and directed to the lift, which takes you down to the hidden gem. Every dish a delight and so satisfying. The quail and Wagyu A5 were outstanding - all the flavours perfectly balanced. The atmosphere is grand and opulent yet warming with attentive service - an overall wonderful experience.

    Booking process very easy online. Greeted politely and welcomed at the bar with friendly and great service. Once our table was set we were escorted to the dining area which was beautifully lit and the vibe was lovely! Each and every staff member we encountered were very polite and offered great recommendations and never had an empty glass! 10/10 would visit again

    Our mains came out cold. I mentioned it to the waiter and they took them back and returned them warmed up. I would never complain, but I had a friend from Sydney here and was disappointed that their meal wasn’t as great as it normally is. Warming up a steak and duck, is simply not good enough.
