I tried very hard to find a reason to give this anything less than 10 but I couldn't.....its perfect and it is in the best suburb in Sydney to go out (Newtown - it actually has a nightlife!)
Hi Steve, thank you very much for those wonderful numbers, our aim here is to try and do the same to every diner and leave them with a wonderful experience that they will remember. Regards Nick.

It was early on the Monday lunch of the long weekend so we where the first in. Can't fault anything, dumplings where excellent & perfectly steamed, the owner/manager is a real character & the service was excellent. Will be making it a regular dumpling spot for us.

This restaurant is like a roller coaster, in the beginning it was consistently great and I LOVED it, but these days you can never be sure what you're getting. Thankfully this was a good visit. Wait and bar staff were charming and efficient and comped us a drink when there was a delay in the kitchen. Food was delicious. Luyu & Yum Yum was a favourite of mine for casual dining and I used to recommend it to everyone, hopefully they're back on track for good and I can become a regular again.

Food was fabulous again and well presented. This is our second time and we wonder why it has taken so long - dumplings are to die for!!!! Whilst it is not fine dining in the 'true' sense of the word it comes really close. The house special beef was tender and spiced just right and the fried eggplant is a taste experience
Hi there Thank you very much for such a great review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your evening and hope to see you back again. Regards Nick.

I loved the vibe of this place and the food was pretty good, but considering how many (really good) dumpling places there are in Sydney, I'd question going there again because of the price. Great for a special occasion or date.

Our waiter was particularly lovely. Beautiful food. My only suggestion would be to leave the water carafes on the tables.

About Luyu & Yum Yum

Yum, yum indeed! This sexy, sleek dumpling house could stand proudly next to any CBD institution, but lucky Newtowner’s have scored it right on the main stretch of King Street. Take a seat and watch the chefs hard at work in the open kitchen and order a pot of tea from the extensive tea menu while you scan the menu. The obvious thing to order is dumplings - and there are plenty of them (we love the Mr Yum Yum pot sticker which are stuffed full of chicken ginger and shallots). There are also some select entrees, a few mains and noodle dishes + dessert. In a town that has multiple dumpling houses Luyu is already being noticed as a serious competitor. Best dish: salt & pepper squid.
