Yezi Steamboat @ The Roof First Avenue Bandar Utama




Yezi Steamboat is located at The Roof at Bandar Utama, being the first restaurant that introduced coconut-based broth in Malaysia.  This Chinese-themed steamboat featuring a Shenzhen, China concept using Yezi (which means coconut) has a unique flavour that surely gives you an inaugural experience.

Yezi has a spectacular interior filled with classy Chinese Oriental theme. The restaurant is clean and pleasant looking with bright gold lighting. Welcoming atmosphere with the friendly and smiley staff explaining the menu and assist us.

Another section of sofa seats with Chinese Ink paintings at the corner


Comfortable air conditioning dining environment


We are served with century egg as the appetizer
Fried Mushroom
Fluffy and flavourful Seafood fried rice RM 26 

Yezi Steamboat have 5 different types of the coconut broth. The Original Yezi Broth, Imperial Canton Broth, Aromatic Taiwanese Beef Spice Broth, Fragrant Shao Xing Wine Seafood Broth and Wild Forest Truffle Mushroom Broth

Yezi has its own signature steamboat sauce that is so unique. Yezi have their own Homemade Dipping Sauce, chili, sand ginger and  lime. We love the chili dipping sauce which is spicy and tangy. There is a clear guideline to mix the sauce together but I will prefer to mix it on my own preference. The homemade sauce is not soya sauce. The taste is light, not salty and blends well with the chili and ginger


The Premium Yezi Signature Broth is price at RM38 for the whole big pot and can be refillable. The soup is clear with coconut aroma using fresh coconut water, added in bamboo fungus and water chestnuts. Yezi emphasize on clean and healthy soup based and using only the freshest ingredients here. Yezi coconut broth has the incredible taste that is so nutritious and refreshing that I never try before. Moreover, this special broth is good for detoxification and remedy for cough. 

After the coconut broth brings to boil, the staff add in the Organic Kampung Chicken to boost up the flavours. 

 The soup taste is just heavenly and the natural sweetness of the coconut makes every sip so enjoyable.

 We are served with varieties of homemade balls that are prepared fresh upon ordering. There are Premium Lamb Slices (RM 25), Pork Slices (RM 13) , Chicken Balls with Mushrooms (RM12), Prawn Paste (RM20) served in bamboo, tiger prawn, mushroom and vegetables. Meatballs are hand-made to perfection and the size is huge when its cooked.


First time trying coconut dumpling

Pork slices (RM 13.00). Tender and thin slices pork meat. Just need to dump the pork slices and within seconds quickly take it out

Next, we squeeze in the Fish & Tobiko Paste Noodle (RM18) which was served in a syringe.

A different taste in each bite
