Always busy. Great for take out and in restaurant dining. Plan to get there early for lunch. Reservations are a good idea.

First class Chinese restaurant. It is a large facility with a huge number of menu selections. Very efficient and, of course, takeout is available

This is one of my favorite places to eat. Food is always great, prices are very reasonable and chef Chu is usually in the kitchen cooking the food himself. The dinner sets give you a good variety of popular dishes. The decor needs a serious make-over, but I suppose you could call that part of the ""charm"". Definitely make reservations Friday - Sunday, otherwise you'll wait at least 30 minutes.

I have been a customer of theirs for over 20 years and their food has always been Superb!
Their food is the standard by which other places should be judged by. The Chef ""Larry"" Chu, as he is casual and humble remembers people even if they aren't the heads of state or famous as all the people on his wall of famous guests shows. Where most chinese food restaurants fail in heavy oils, their food is light and fresh. If I was on a deserted island and could take one
meal with me it would be his chicken salad, pot-stickers and kung pao chicken. They make their own hot oil there and try it with the salad and pot-stickers. I highly recommend it and all the hype is more than justified by the consistent quality. Cheers for Chef Chu....!

I love this place! The food is consistently great , the service friendly and the prices when compared to other restaurants I eat out at are so reasonable. If you really want to try some authentic chinese dishes, you have got to order some of the less popular ""americanized"" dishes. I just went in and tried for the first time their basil chicken and its was awesome! I higly recommend reservations though.

I don't understand why people have raved and talked about this restaurant for so many years! From the Moment I walked into the restaurant I was disappointed! Until recently, I was invited to Chef Chu's for lunch because my friends had never tried it either. So the""open Kitchen"" was disgusting! poorly displayed food and good view of a old gloomy and rundown kitchen. Along with the rest of the restaurant, Everything was outdated and not special. The service was poor! The young waiter was unfriendly and pushy to sell more expensive items rather that from their lunch special which was even more of a disappointment. The bill came out to almost 35$ without tip for 3 people. we got ripped off. Food was not good. Very thick and .....yuck. I just don't get why people still to this day say the food is good , even yet, ""the best Chinese food"". Whatever Overrated! Never going back again, and they need to change their credit card system because because they'll charge you a service fee!
