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

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Went here just recently and got in early for lunch (11:25am and the officially open at 11:30am). Try the scallops - they are excellent. They have some new items on the menu and the next time I will be trying one of them. ALWAYS a crowd. I wish they were closer to... More

Don't really need to go to Chicago Chinatown for good Chinese food when there's Yu's. We ordered the 8 Treasure Tofu Pot, Walnut Shrimp, and the Salt & Pepper Smelts. All were very good but the only issue we had was that it wasn't very hot, more like lukewarm in temperature. The portion sizes were excellent. Especially like their use... More

My family love this place. Food is excellent and price is reasonable. Try their seafood combination platter and their fried rice. On weekends, you have to wait for about 30 mins to be seated. Once order is made, their service is quick.

This is pretty much the only Chinese restaurant that I like. I don't go there often as I live fairly far but when I'm in Schaumburg it is a must stop. My favorite dish is sesame beef. No other restaurant has it.
