“A Step Above Fu's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Consistent - Nice taste - excellent variety. Service is good but not over the top.

Easy to substitute ingredients.

Atmosphere is so much better than Fu's.

Not including summer, Chun Bo is difficult to get into on a weekend evening.

“The Best Sushi I Have Had In This Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is my favorite Chinese food restaurant around. The service and the servers are very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. The sushi plate specials are so good! The alcoholic drinks are pricey but not outrageous. I like the atmosphere. The one and only thing I wish they would consider would be cloth napkins. Everyone enjoyed their food, even though one person ordered a broiled steak (ugh). And one last thing...the noodles that you pick at while waiting are really THE best.

“Good food, fun atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We eat here with our teenaged daughters a lot. We really love it here because the atmosphere has that classic, Polynesian restaurant feel complete with the fountain in the lobby. We always have very prompt, friendly service and enjoy the food. Our favorites are the boneless honey spareribs, General Tso's chicken, and roast pork lo mein. The drinks are fun and they will make non-alcoholic versions for the kids. If you're looking for a fun place to eat Chinese food with the family or significant other, I would recommend Chun Bo.

“Good food, shaky service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

I have eaten at this restaurant a couple times and have enjoyed myself. it is a nice looking place with a very clean and classy, and traditional atmosphere. the food is very enjoyable for joint Asian cuisine, but my only real problem was with the service. so far I have only had one nice, interactive waiter. i have found the staff members are very cold to their coustomers.
