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.

My husband and I made a New Year’s Resolution to try 12 new places to eat in 2014. Making it a special “anniversary date night” for us each month. The only rule in selecting a place to dine is that it needs to be within 60 miles of home and a place that we have not previously visited TOGETHER. So,... More

A French restaurant in Topeka, Kansas with a Japanese chef? Seems a bit odd, but hey, it works! We arrived exactly on time for our 7:30pm reservation, but had to wait 15 minutes for our table ... STRIKE 1! While we waited, we had a view of the prep area where a server was taking cherry tarts out of a... More

What a great surprise to find Chez Yasu in Topeka. The first hint was the listing in Local Eats. The food was great, the service wonderful and the wine list was a great selection. Don't let the outside appearance of this gem fool you, the food is devine

This is Topeka's ONLY high quality restaurant. Had calamari for appetizer and veal for dinner. Both were cooked to perfection. Just recently moved to Topeka and have been disappointed with the culinary options. This place has renewed my faith in Topeka restaurants.

If I had to say what wasn't great: the house salad was boring. Just cut up roman lettuce and house dressing. Still good. I also wasnt empressed with the bread. The first loaf came out hot, the rest cold and less than stellar. I had expected more as the French are famous for their breads. However the rest of my... More
