I should disclose that I have never been a big fan of French restaurant food served and I have never been to France. I went to Chez with some friends who were anxious to try this place. The mussels appetizer was great. The sole and sea bass entrees came out just as described, which was bland with butter lemon sauce.... More

Pefectly good food is prepared and served here, but the traditional French preparations with butter and sauce seem a little tired. Maybe their heart really isn't into it any more.

Having eaten many times in France, Chez Yasu is about as close in Topeka and surrounding area as you can get to real French cuisine. Have eaten there many times and never disappoints. Good menu, short but good wine list except they no longer have the Chateau Bonnet wines which were excellent and moderately priced but others will suffice. Lobster... More

A little over-rated- in my experience. I've been 3 times. Never had either outstanding food or service- ambiance is nice, however.

My co-workers and I ate here for lunch one time when looking for something different. The food was very good- there is lots of seafood on the menu. The service was a little slow, but if you have time, it is worth a visit!

I was us expectantly surprised to have enjoyed this restaurant so much. As I have been living in France for the past 10 years I couldn't help going into comparison mode at this restaurant when finding myself here with a big family group. From the outside it is really not much to look at. Just to let you know that... More

Dinner was good but pretty ordinary. Nothing unusual but also nothing really delicious. The chef tends to overdo the sauces and underdo the seasoning.

We try to make it to Chez Yasu every time we travel this way. French cuisine on the prairie, and good wine list.

Try to forget that it's in Topeka. We've been there 3 times and had a very nice experience each time. The food is very good - some of the dishes even deserving of the term 'French cuisine'. Attentive service, unassuming atmosphere. It's hard to impress a snob from Lawrence, but they've done it every time. Recommended.
