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

This is the best place to get Chinese. It's the best tasting in Mankato and it is reasonable. They're renovating the building now but will reopen in the same strip mall. Their cream cheese won tons are a steal.

Not really authentic chinese food. Dishes looks good, but they can taste real horrible or salty. Don't judge a food by its looks. Chef may customize cooking to customer's request. Cashier asks for tips. Isn't tips given willingly by customers and not asked for??! Lolx

Our favorite local Chinese restaurant; it's just what a neighborhood Chinese restaurant should be. It's not the best Chinese food we've ever had; there are better places in the Twin Cities, not to mention places like Vancouver and San Francisco which are much more 'authentic'. But when we want a quick meal out it's where we usually head; good food... More
