A great place for Chinese food. The lunch specials make it an easy choice for meeting up with friends and the food is excellent. There is a large glass window where you can watch the cooks prepare the meals and see the noodles made which is fascinating. I love their crab rangoon and anything they make with shrimp!

I am a business traveler and have a business not too far from Schaumburg. I travel to the States just about once a month. My first dinner on American soil is always at Yu´s. It is the best Chinese restaurant I ever found in the States. Service is excellent, friendly and fast. Portions are bigger than most and always very... More

Had not been to Yus in 2 years. They had been the "go to" high class Chinese restaurant in NW suburbs. No more. They Still have waiting list for seating, but they don't deliver the class. Service was slow and not very attentive. Sesame chicken was dry. Prices were still above average, would have expected better

This is the place to go if you are looking for Chinese food in the suburbs. Very tasty, very very busy place. I would not try to get a seat on a Friday night. Carry out is always a great option however. A little pricey but worth it really.

I was there twice. Mostly I return because of nice chinese food but everytime I was there, something was not well with the service. The cuising is slow - prepare to wait for a long time and also the staff is not very helpful in explaining the menu items.

Note to self: do not go to Yu's for lunch on a school holiday. We arrived at 1 pm expecting the lunch crowd to be gone, but the restaurant was completely full and there was a 15 minute wait. The food was consistently good as always, although the service fell short this time. The lunch menu is a great value... More

This year we decided to go to Yu's for New Years Eve dinner. Unlike some restaurants - Yu's serves from there normal menu. We ordered dinners which include soup, the appetizer tray with 5 appetizers and a full dinner with rice and tea. The food was fresh and flavorful even though we requested NO MSG. The service was very good.... More

When we arrived there were two people in the take out area, about twenty people waiting and a single hostess working furtively to get everyone seated. At first glance we wondered why one of the folks from the take out area wasn't helping the hostess but then we realized that one of the take out employees looked fairly lost and... More

AWFUL SERVICE. Left a bad taste in my mouth. This restaurant has awful customer service...even when you order for take out. I will never eat here again after the way I was treated today. I ordered food at 5:15 for takeout. I was told the food would be ready for pickup at 6pm. I got there at 5:58 and paid.... More

We visited Yu's because we had heard the food and service were excellent. We arrived and despite it being very busy, were seated within 10 minutes. The disinterested waitress took our order and we began our interminable wait for dinner. Watching others arrive, be seated and eat, as well as leave while we continued to wait, and after waiting over... More
