Yu Shanghai is being hailed as "an ensemble of exquisite local delicacies, enthralling theatrical performance, captivating multimedia presentation and daring decor that entice all senses".

Due to open its doors to the public on May 1st, the restaurant is located in Shanghai's old town, in a building which features Ming-style architecture dating back 600 years.

It is spread over two floors and also boasts a rooftop garden, which will be used exclusively for private bookings.

Connections Restaurant Management, the company behind the new eatery, aims to make this the first of five establishments which reflects the culture of the Chinese city in which it is located.
