Good food

Really kind of a middle of the road Chinese place. They use some kind of odd oil for cooking, otherwise I would have given them better.

The thing I've noticed about Yu's on my several visits is that you kind of need to know the menu to not end up disappointed. The lo mein has super thin noodles, not what I'm used to and the beef portion in my order was ridiculously small. Pork fried rice was serviceable and close to what I consider traditional, but...

By far the best chinese food in the area. Fresh ingredients prepared to order. The restaurant is newly remodeled. The dining area lacks atmosphere, as a result we mainly go for the takeout. which is fast.

My son and I stopped in for lunch. They had did alot of remodeling. The food needs some work too. My egg roll was cold and not at all fresh. The beef and broccoli tasted burnt, chicken teriyaki was black. The only thing we got eat was the lomein.

Love this place. We usually stop here when in town. They have the best orange chicken I have ever had. The service is always quick and the prices are reasonable.

Everything that I've had here is great!! I have to get the cream cheese wontons when ever I go. Almost everyone in my family orders the orange chicken and its pretty amazing my favorite is beef with broccoli. The portions are easily big enough to share and the prices are fair. It's a must stop place if your in Mankato... More

The best part was the food tasted fresh and did not make us feel ill. No sign out front, so it was a bit difficult to locate but we found it! Very nice service, relaxing atmosphere where we were able to chat and carry on a conversation easily. Nice variety on the menu. Added bonus - the prices were very... More

Recently ate at the newly reopened Yu's located be the MSUM campus. The decor has been updated but the food is still outstanding. Good portions with a fair price. Due to building construction they don't really have a sign out front but that should be back soon. A Mankato must stop!

I love Yu's! I used to not care for Chinese food but my sister made me go once over 11 yrs ago and I fell in love with it! I love the Lemon Chicken! Along with the Cream Cheese Wontons and Egg Roll. I also like the Chicken Fried Rice! My daughter loves the BBQ Pork Lomien and my husband... More
