Excellent DIY Asian!

C. I. Chu's is one of those hole in the wall places that you find, if you're lucky, every once in a while.

The place is beautiful and a very decent one. You build your own bowl mixed with vegetables, seasonings,and choice of chicken, beef or seafood.They also have different soups to choose from.

We had lunch here with friends. It is nice that you can pick out your own veggies and meat, plus you make your own sauce and you can watch if being grilled. The ingredients were fresh and the selection was good. We enjoyed the process and the food was quite good.

I had a mixed opinion of this place. The food ingredients included a great selection of meats and vegetables. One of the noodle choices with whole wheat which was unique and something I have not seen and other places like this. I was pretty disappointed by the sauce choices compared to other places like this. I've seen a much better... More

Not a bad Mongolian BBQ, but not a great one. Adequate choices, but not overwhelming. Service is okay. Prices are okay. Not terribly quick.

An excellent place for those times when you cannot decide where to go to eat. Once you visit the Mongolian BBQ, you just walk past all the meats, the veggies, and pick the ones you fancy and leave it with the chef. It is cooked right then and brought to your table. And what's more, you even get to pick... More

Went here today with my family. Wasn't impressed with the food. I was shocked when we paid almost 40$ for two grown ups and two toddlers.

Try to get there for lunch about every other week. The choice of fresh vegetables and meat are exceptional. And I love their directions for making your own sauce. The Garden soup and sesame bread are nice additions.

I've been to quite a few Mongolian grills, and this one wasn't the best, but was far from the worst. They had a great assortment of veggies - more than normal, in my opinion, and I liked that they had pineapple. I haven't seen many that offer that, and it was delicious. The sesame bread was good, but a little... More
