Time Out says
Shelley Yu’s has its design down pat, keeping to the restaurant and bar’s Nyonya theme but updated with modern aesthetics. It’s cool and vibrant, and superbly photogenic, something Instagrammers will love.
Food wise, Shelley Yu’s decides to stick with classic Malaccan Nyonya cuisine instead. There’s the ayam sioh (chicken with tamarind), sotong masak hitam, deep fried whole fish with sambal, and cincaluk fried egg. There are some lunch deals too, where you can get nasi goreng, nyonya laksa or mee siam, along with pai tee and a drink, for RM20.
The cocktail menu, on the other hand, takes more risk by exploring Nyonya-inspired cocktails with homemade syrups, mixers and edible garnishes. Expect ingredients like turmeric brine, salted pineapple and the likes in your drinks. There’s a considerable selection of gin and tonics as well. Come weekend, Shelley Yu’s also features the occasional DJ nights, making it a place you can stay on long after dinner is over.
