Food was delicious, especially the chicken salad, soups and beef dishes. There was something for everyone in our party of 5 adults and 3 children. The waiter was helpful and explained the menu as well as making comparisons and explaining similarities to other Chinese specialties in other parts of the country. He had a good sense of humor with everyone... More

Stopped by for lunch with some girlfriends and we loved the chicken salad, hot and sour soup and of course the sweet and sour pork. We ordered the lemon chicken as well, but thought it had a strange aftertaste. Our waitress was not the most professional, seemed to be annoyed that we were even there, but the owner was wonderful.... More

Food is always fresh and imaginative. Friends from overseas always want to make a stop here on their business trip. The Chus are warm and welcoming.

A very varied menu, covering many different areas of China. Were able to experience some new very delicious dishes as well as some standbys. Enjoyed the food and the evening.

It isn't hard to find a Chinese restaurant in the Bay Area ;), so what makes me comment on Chef Chu's? Having had many lunches and dinners here over the years, what stands out is the consistency: the ingredients are of excellent quality, the service is always friendly, accurate and speedy and the food never fails to delight. Hard to... More

My wife used to go to this place 25 years ago. It has grown but the same family runs it. This is just real good Chinese food. Good menu and good service.

Arrived late from an East Coast flight and had dinner at Chef Chu's. The Chinese food was awesome - late night,; great service. Exceptional Chinese food - you can't go wrong with selecting Chef Chu's.

We got to Chef Chu`s at 8:15 and was seated by 8:30 - told to call ahead and put our name on the list - this worked perfectly. The service was fast and food excellent - they have a great operation going on there plus Chef Chu greeted people present which was great

We had a great evening at Chef Chu's celebrating a 50th anniversary with 6 people. We selected several dishes and the waiter was great about serving nice portion sizes for everyone for every dish. We had Won Ton soup, hot & sour soup, chopped chicken salad, mu shu pork, lamb chops, mongolian beef and eggplant. All were wonderful! We will... More

Comparing to most Chinese restaurants, Chef Chu is a very unique one: (1) the restaurant is owned/operated by the same person, Lawrence Chu, for over 40 years from its first day, (2) Lawrence himself is a good cook and yet enjoys interacting directly with his customers, (3) he is also actively involved in community activities, and (4) food there is...
