Deja Vu


A noodle house just opened in Damansara Uptown. So I decided to check them out. Upon entering the premises, the lanterns and vats of wine reminded of another place.


When I looked at their menu and their order chit, it hit me that this place is kind of like Go Noodle House


Hmmm....would the noodles taste the same as that other place? So I got myself my favorite bursting meatballs.


I went for the add on, sui kow (two pieces). As I sipped the broth, I noted that the flavor was quite mild. I'm sorry I can't help comparing this with Go Noodle House. I am not saying this is a copycat but rather a borrowed or an expanded idea (?) as they are not entirely the same.


Unlike Go Noodle House, there is a bottle (pretty bottle I might add) of wine on every table for you to help yourself. I added a spoonful to my broth and that enhanced the taste a bit.


Since I was feeling depressed that day, I helped myself to another dose wahahaha!! Eh, got effect lah. I was feeling slightly lightheaded after the meal 😎😎😎


The taste of the bursting meatballs was exactly as I remembered from Go Noodle House (since I had it very recently). 


The sui kow was alright, lots of minced carrots mixed in with meat.


Their sambal is quite nice. I prefer this sambal compared to the other one which I find too watery.

Yu Noodle Cuisine also serves Tom Yam broth and I came back the next day to try it.


I had the garoupa fish head and belly (there was only one piece of belly and lots of bony fish head pieces). I'm afraid the fish was not as fresh as it should be. The tom yam broth was very tangy and spicy hot.


I guess Yu Noodle Cuisine would be another alternative for noodle lovers in Damansara Uptown.

  5. oh, thanks for reviewing this new noodle shop! I like that the wine is on the table for us to help ourselves. What is the price like? if lower than the other one then must go eat here, hehehehe since there is free flow wine and nicer sambal.

  6. Whoa! Uptown is so veli happening now! So many new outlets since the million birds arrived at Starling. Flying birds are really good feng shui elements.
    I must go and stalk you there someday as you seem to leave your foot prints in so many restaurants now. So you got "high" after the meal and zig zagged your way back to the office safely. You should have gone to Family mart to douse your mabuk head with their superb Green Tea Ice Cream cone! Slurrps!

    I would have created my own authentic decor since our ancient Chinese culture has dated back to 5,000 years of ideas to copy. Anyway that's common as you would see all different fast food joints also have similar "fast food" decor looks. The first place that opened in Klang Valley using big wine jars with pasted red papers and wooden furniture was Madam Hung's pub at Phileo Damansara. My ex boss opened that place for his ex mistress, some 17 years ago. What a gossiper I am.

  10. heheh, i'd be quite greedy and add several spoonfuls of the wine to my soup ... even if it ends up tasting too wine-y in the end :) i do hope you feel better now though.

  12. I've had the same feeling a couple of times when I walked into some new restaurants in my area also! I don't mind too much so long as the food is tasty and the seating is comfortable- which certainly looks to be the case here!

  13. We tend to compare when it comes to "duplicate"... and more often we still prefer the original.. :) anyway, at least you tried and now you know..

    1. Yup, now I know and I don't mind coming by again if I pass by or if the other place is crowded.

  16. I've read another review about this place and the writer commented that the taste was totally different although the presentation is 90 or 80% similar :P

    1. kah..kah..kah...sometimes (or many times) I break the rule. Once my pants start to feel tight, I get back on track. Like that lah, MD. I cannot resist eating carbs!
