Excellent food

I frequently visit this eatery for business lunches and never a disappointment. It can get quite crowded so have to beat the typical lunch crowd. Seems to get busy around 1230.

I frequently visit this eatery for business lunches and never a disappointment. It can get quite crowded so have to beat the typical lunch crowd. Seems to get busy around 1230. This is a good choice since you get to pick your own ingredients. I recommend the Chefs Special sauce. Always feel full and satisfied when eating there.

For those not familiar with the Mongolian BBQ concept, you select uncooked items from a buffet and you stack these in a bowl. (If you are a carnivore, slow down and don't overfill the bowl with rice and veggies, limiting your shrimp/meat quantity.) In addition to cooking up your selections, they provide soup and flat-breads. The price is very reasonable.

Seven of us got there about 7PM. All of us were charged the 'all you can eat' rate, even my wife that has had bariatric surgery and can not eat more than a 6 year old child. I selected beef, pork, mung bean sprouts, green onions, mushrooms and their 'teriyaki' sauce mix. When I got my food the meat was... More

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 buffet holding the fresh vegetables, noodles, and meats are clean, well stocked, and give you all of the usual choices for asian cooking, along with sauces to complement your favorite foods! Service is quick, even at... More

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.
