We've been going there for years and have always enjoyed it. They also offer very efficient and accurate takeout.
I went to Chef Chu's for 3 times. It is an excellent Chinese restaurant in Mountain View. I like the cod and lobster cooked by them, although it is about $50 for one serve. It might be famous among upper lever because I saw many photos with important persons. I did not give 5 stars because the price is generally... More
I stopped at Chef Chu's for lunch only because of convenience, not because I knew anything about the place (unusual for me) and was not disappointed. I told the hostess I was in a hurry and the waiter appeared within two minutes of my being a menu by the hostess....he had been told I was in a hurry and my... More
Very popular and very crowded. Good food and service. Reasonable prices. Be prepared to wait. Can be quite noisy at busy times. More suited to families, as opposed to business.
Mikhail Gorbachev. Justin Bieber. Margaret Thatcher. Benazir Bhutto. George H.W. Bush. Jimmy Carter. From the framed, signed celebrity photos on the walls, it seems like Chef Chu's is "hot stuff." With so many good Chinese restaurants in the Bay Area, what makes Chef Chu's a stand-out? First off, they make good food. Our Hot and Sour Soup was probably the... More
I started going to Chef Chu's when my Dad's real estate office was above it - sooo many years ago. Just revisited it again - after being away for 30 years. I am so glad I did! They have incredible Chinese food, and I was happy to see that the main dishes I loved were still fabulous! They have grown... More
The sit down area is pleasant, on the higher end for a chinese restaurant. Service is nice, waiters are attentive. The food quality is consistent, seems to use less MSG if any, definitely less than the typical chinese place if that matters to you. I would come back again when in the Palo Alto area.
Chef Chu has won many awards for outstanding Chinese food. He has written several cook books as well. If you have a chance, he occasionally does a special banquet in the private dining room, where you will experience some very unique foods. Be prepared to wait a little, as this is a very popular place. Try the fried won-ton chips... More
We visited this restaurants after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It is a very popular restaurant. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype. Staff is friendly and service is good. We were even served small, tasty appetizers while waiting for our table. The food we ordered was bland. The appetizer, barbequed pork, was overcooked and lacked taste. Main courses,... More
Everytime my wife and I are in the area, this is a must visit. Been going to this restaurant for over 30 years and it has never disappointed. Good service, excellent food - what more could you want!
