The poor translation is likely done with intention so as to add a sense of humour for the particular emerging parody in order to make more sense.

Name: Sum Yung Gai
Type: restaurant
Owner: Wu Lee
Appearance(s): GTA IV

Locations: Cerveza Heights, Dukes

Sum Yung Gai is a Chinese restaurant on the corner of Inchon Avenue and Huntington Street in Cerveza Heights, Dukes, Liberty City. Huang Lee's uncle Wu "Kenny" Lee does his business here, and the player's first missions from him are received here. The restaurant is unique for having a giant bowl sculpture on its roof with a body armor pickup inside it. The restaurant is a destination for Taxi Driver in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. The business name appears on some Pony vans. The name is a play on the lewd joke, "I'll have the cream of Sum Yung Gai", and also sounds simply like "Some young guy". The "cream" on the other hand refers to semen. The name 'Sum Yung Gai' is believed to be a poorly translated Cantonese for 'Three Cup Chicken' (三Sam 杯Bui 雞Gai) which became 'Three Drink Chicken' (三Sam 飲Yum 雞Gai). The poor translation is likely done with intention so as to add a sense of humour for the particular emerging parody in order to make more sense.

A sticker of the Restaurants' logo was included with other stickers of Huang, Ling, the Burger Shot logo and the Rockstar Games logo if Chinatown Wars was pre-ordered (Australia and New Zealand).

Sum Yung Gai's building design is based off the real-life Chao Zhou Restaurant at 40-52 Main Street, in Flushing, Queens, which is most notable for its signature red bowl and chopstick sculpture on its roof; the restaurant is based in the first floor, while the second floor is occupied by a karaoke "KTV MONSTER" lounge (The "MEN STORE" sign on the building in-game is derivative of the "MONSTER" sign of the real-life karaoke lounge).
