Best Chinese food in the tri-valley area. Very good service and the food is very fresh. Lemon Chicken is fabulous.

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

Been going to Uncle Yu's for over 25 years when I first went to Saint Mary's College. Its just the place to go when you want the best Chinese food. The crab rangoon is the best ever!

Whenever we visit my grandma in Walnut Creek, our family ends up making a trip to Uncle Yu's. The walnut prawns are definitely a favorite. Never been disappointed by anything on the menu.

I've been here many times over the years and can easily say that the food is always very good and well prepared. The service is always attentive. My favorite dish is the Tea Smoked Duck - delicious!

When I crave Chinese food and am near Lafayette, I always stop to eat at Uncle Yu's. Their food is consistently good. I crave their mu shu (either vegetable or chicken) with plum sauce...delicious! Their service is excellent with very attentive waiters. The atmosphere is pleasant and you never feel rushed.

It is all very average but it is clean and nice for a quick lunch. The service is good and the people are friendly. Just average food. Good enough.

The service was very good and they have a gluten free menu. We ordered Peking Duck - excellent, (they put the buns and duck together for you right at the table and they give you packaged wipes to clean up after you eat your duck), honey walnut prawns - gluten free - very good, peking chicken - gluten free -...
