Love this place. The decor is usual Chinese, which I love. The food is delicious, the wait staff friendly. Take out is a great option.

Went to Chef Chu's twice when in the area. The first time was very good. The second time, which was 2 weeks ago, food was a bit disappointing. The service was not as friendly as the first time and almost felt ignored and at some points even rushed. This place is always very busy with a fairly long wait, so... More

Loved our dinner at Chef Chu's. The food is not your usual fair. It's more exotic. From the mai tai to the giant prawns or peking duck, the dishes are not only delicious buts works of art. The service was great. Of interest-the Wall of Importance; many famous people have eaten here too!

We live in the area and have come here many times over the years. The food is wonderful every time we come. They are especially known for their Chinese Chicken salad and lemon chicken but everything is good here. Be sure to make a reservation at night if you don't want to wait or get their take out. The waiters... More

Had a very nice, and reasonably priced dinner here. Food and selection was very broad, with some great different dishes. If you want a good chinese meal come here, if you want a great buzz and atmosphere maybe not.

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.
