We ordered a large take out order for New Year's Eve and everything was excellent. Everything was hot, just as we ordered and very yummy!

We went to dinner/ended up at Chef Sau last night. Because we couldn’t obtain the supposedly “on-sale” “Alaskan” king crab legs from any Stop & Shop store (see my reviews on this site) and had planned to cook them for dinner last night, we more or less resorted to going out for Chinese food, giving Chef Sau a chance to...

Sloppy, messy, disorganized are words that come to mind to describe our first and last visit. Poor service, small portions and high prices also fit. A dump in a run down town. Who goes out to dinner in crumbling downtown Spencer MA anyhow?

We gave this place a few tries, but won't be back. It was just ok the first time, and just crummy on our other visits. We ordered a few of the same dishes/appetizers each time but the quality and taste were very inconsistent. My husband requested extra vegetables In his lo mein and was told No (a simple request, seemed... More

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.
