“Nice!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We were there for lunch, party of 8, during the weekday. Service was fast and prompt as always. lunch menu came with the side rice and soup, but dinner menu was available also. it has been 4 years since last time I was here, maybe I was expecting too much. This visit did not have the wow factor like the last time. Don't get me wrong, food was delicious overall but just felt like it was missing something. I will be going back for dinner before I head back home........ If you love Chinese food, this place is a must!!

“Nice meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We went here with our family of 10. We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. The service was attentive and quick. We choose about 8-10 dishes and everything arrived promptly and was delicious.

“Solid Choice in NW Chicago Suburbs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Yu's Mandarin is located in a strip mall with ample parking. Featuring a subdued and tasteful Asian decor, the restaurant is large with a main dining area and sizable rooms to the left and right of the main area. The extensive menu offers a wide variety of Chinese dishes as well as a solid selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. We have enjoyed many of the appetizers and entrees and always found them to be substantial portions made with flavorful, high quality ingredients. Unlike some other reviewers, our service experience has been a good one with servers quick, friendly and professional----particularly impressive given that the restaurant is usually full. While the food and service at Yu's are top-notch, there are two additional reasons that dining here is a special experience. First, is the see-through kitchen. Spanning the length of the main dining area, the glassed-in kitchen has several woks immediately adjacent to the glass wall where, if one is seated relatively close, you can watch the chefs in action. The second factor that raises Yu's above the ordinary is that they make their own noodles----a factor that becomes readily apparent when one enjoys any of the noodle-based dishes. A "don't miss" aspect of this restaurant is the noodle shows that are presented every Friday and Saturday evening, when chefs demonstrate the fascinating process of creating noodles from a large block of dough. If you find yourself northwest of Chicago and craving Chinese cuisine, Yu's is a very solid option.

“Great food and show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

This is a very entertaining restaurant with the chefs cooking for you behind a glass wall in the dining area. And added bonus is on weekends when the one of the chefs makes those noodles of theirs by hand in the dining area, not to be missed. All items are high quality and very tasty, my favorite appetizer is the cold calamari salad, really good and spicy. Have never had a bad meal here, but wait can be long on weekends, so get there early.

“The Best Chinese Food in Metro Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Whenever we visit the metro Chicago area, Yu's is a must. The food is fresh and delicious. You can watch several chefs in action with the large window. Every dish we ever tried is unreal. Service is very quick, but you don't feel rushed in this busy restaurant. Large portions. This is a must if you are in the area.
