The culinary philosophy at Yi is based on the oldest of the Chinese classic texts, I Ching (Book of Changes), and hones in on the belief that nourishment leads to wellness and good fortune.

Chefs Wong and Fam honor traditional cooking techniques and are passionate about using the freshest produce possible — so passionate, in fact, that there are no freezers in the Yi kitchen, and a huge amount of freshly caught seafood is delivered every day.

It is not just the delectable cuisine that impresses at Yi: The restaurant is located on a spectacular skybridge on the 21st floor of Morpheus at City of Dreams, and features 12 tables set within eight golden semi-domes with dragon scale-inspired decor.

The opulent interiors were designed by globally renowned Zaha Hadid Architects. The intimate domes face the windows, allowing guests to admire the outstanding mountain and garden views.
