We came back here in July one evening. We were greeted by the owner, Tony who showed us to our table. Well cooked food, as always and the wine list is well priced too! Always a good place for dinner or a takeaway!

Have been coming to Yau's since it was opened. Tony is a local legend & nothing is too much trouble . Food is good as London China Town (and most times better). The secret is consistency. How they do it is amazing but the food is as spot on as it was years ago. I keep imagining a little old... More

Yau's has been around for over 30 years now, and is still the best Chinese around, can honestly say in all that time, the food has always been excellent and the service spot on

A further return visit to our local and most popular Chinese restaurants. Again not disappointed and one we would strongly recommend to singles, couples and parties. Also popular with Take Away customers who were treated to a drink whilst they waited. A nice touch. Looking forward to a further visit, or even a take away.

Hands down this is the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. The whole of Billericay and beyond are regulars for a reason! We have never had a bad meal or takeaway and we have been going as long as I can remember and I am 24! Menu is incredibly varied, all the usual favourites and some other new choices... More

The Food is lovely with good starters especially the Duck and pancakes. MY favourite is the satay chicken and Singapore noodles. Some of the food can be a bit oily thats the only criticism i have. Staff are very friendly too.

Called to confirm. Advised would be there as walking toward restaurant. Arrived 1 minute later. Advised busy. Advised full. Bad communication. Food it past average. Decided there are too many other places to eat. Lost this customer.
