Had dinner last night at Uncle Yu's in Lafayette. While the food was tasty, the service was atrocious.There was no friendly greeting upon arrival, menus were practically thrown at us, and no one showed up to take our order. Finally we caught the bartender's eye and she came over begrudgingly to take our order. Ordering was very rushed without adequate... More

Average Chinese food with poor parking. Does not compare favorably with Uncle Yu locations in San Ramon and Livermore.

I came here for lunch with a friend after a long work morning. I started with a Tsingtao beer, then their Hot and Sour Soup, followed by their Crispy Chicken in a hot and sweet sauce. It came with Chow Mein and vegetables. We also had hot tea as well. The food was very good, not great. The service was... More

This was a friday night and we were hungry and wanted to sit and eat a good meal. Stopped in no reservation no wait and got seated right away. We sat in the little patio like area. Good service and great food.

The service was excellent. The staff was obviously well trained. Sadly all of our entrees tasted the same and were a overcooked. The food was the week link on this Saturday night. Thought we would try again but too many restaurants around to go back.

Uncle Yu's in Lafayette is a tradition with us. When we come home from a trip or vacation we make a point to visit Uncle Yu's for dinner. Great Martinis and wonderful seafood dishes, really good pot stickers all delivered to the table by superb servers, Westley being our favorite. Uncle Yu's is never disappointing.

This was a great find in Lafayette, CA. The food was fresh, hot, and good. We especially liked the orange chicken, the tofu dish, and the General Zhou's chicken. We ordered a Shirley Temple for the kids thinking it would be the typical rip off of soda and grenadine syrup...but nope! It was a full fledge concoction that looked like... More
