A bright spot in Topeka

Simple atmosphere, great service. Food did not disappoint. Went for lunch and the place was pretty busy, but the service was spot on. It feels cozy, like someone's house. Would definitely go back.

It's a good place where you and your close friend could have a good experience for French cuisine. It's surprisingly delicious.

Been coming to this little French restaurant for many years. Never gets old. Enjoy turning others on to it. Most are surprised a place of this quality exists in Topeka KS.

Don't know much about French cuisine but the lunch we had is surprisingly affordable and good. The service is friendly and prompt. We order from the lunch menu: soup is fresh, and the special Martini for $7.95 is yummy. The beef tongue is tasty and the liver entree is tender. They are not big in presentation so just go and...

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!
