Stay away... we don't eat there. It's dirty. The entrance has piles of old newspapers, magazines and drycleaning hanging just as you come in. We did take out and wish we hadn't because if the front looks like that what does the back look like ? This place could use a restaurant makeover - where is Robert Irvine ?

Staff is always friendly, great Chinese food. Best place to get big portions for pretty cheap prices.

I called to placean order and like instructed on the menu, it states to mention any food allergies in the party. I advised them that my daughter has a severe shellfish allergy and asked about cooking food separate from shellfish. The gentleman stated that there is no seperate fryer for any foods, but that each basket is rinsed between frying.... More

We ate here about 5 months ago and were disappointed. We've had much better Chinese food elsewhere. Wouldn't go there again. Service was very good, but the food wasn't worth the money.

Regrettably, Chef Sau has definitely gone downhill since our last visit. We stopped in to place a large take-out order to bring home for company; we waited about 15 minutes. We ordered chicken fingers (extremely greasy), crab Rangoon (very good), pork fried rice (greasy and the pork pieces in the rice were so tough that they were inedible), chicken lo... More

Chef Sau is my favorite Chinese restaurant. The food is fresh & authentic and the mai tais are excellent. The owner Mike is very accomodating & friendly. The wait staff are also great, Andrea is the best! Overall, it's a nice & relaxing atmosphere with friendly staff and fantastic food & drinks.

We have been patrons for many years. Talking about lunch for today: The lunch menu is strait-forward, and value priced, but ask for any "special of the day" that may not be on the menu. Often you will get a pleasingly different appetizer or selection that is not usually available. A very good range of specialty Scotch whisky's are available,... More

I used to go to Chef Sau for dinner, but the food quality has taken a dive bomb over that last year or so and every time we "try" it again, we wish we didn't. Don't waste your money here, you and you're stomach will end up regretting it. Besides the crappy food, the owners and staff are not professional.... More

Clean, laid back atmosphere and decor with sports memorabilia on the walls with two large-screen tvs. Excellent, non-greasy food. Will definitely return to sample other dishes offered.
