Melbourne Restaurant Find: Yu-U

In Melbourne, behind a grimy, graffiti covered door on the corner of Flinders and Oliver Lane, you will find a set of steps that will take you down to a hidden world of sophistication. Yu-U is a modern Japanese restaurant that makes you feel like you’ve entered an exclusive members club in downtown Kyoto. But sit down in the low-key, minimalist surroundings and you will soon realize that this is simply a relaxed izakaya with plenty of style and substance.

Yu-U is notoriously publicity-shy so you won’t find so much as a website, let alone a social media page anywhere on the Internet but they do appreciate a phone call (at least their number is listed) ahead of time.

137 Flinders Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
+61 3 9639 7073
