I love love love this place! Their food is so simple and yet so tasty :) There are items that I never try, or kind of scared to try- lol But most of the items are very tasty! The place is very small with only 10 tables or so. They open at 10 am but they won't have everything ready... More

I loved this place for years. I even ignored the other Yelp reviews and photos of maggots being found in the food. Why a one star? Did I finally get maggots in my food? I wished! The food here is really mediocre, but being one of the very few places (like McDonald's and Del Taco) that opens a little later... More

Everything I've tried here is good. Love their giant meatballs, the chicken roll, the eggplant, the maps tofu, and the chicken. Great value too! Their 3-item combo feeds both my husband and I, with left-overs for the following day.

Their smoked cold chicken is... More

My favorite thing to eat here is the yam porridge. They charge per person for it so you get unlimited porridge. The vegetarian options are awesome and they are ready made so they are extremely fast. I love coming to this place. It's also a great option for the nights that they are open late. I frequent this restaurant and... More

Yu's Garden is one of the better Taiwanese/Chinese restaurants in an area that has lots of them. I love their great, unusual dishes, at least unusual for American palates when it comes to Chinese food. They have deep fried pig intestines, sauteed chitterlings, sauteed pig stomach, pig liver and more. It is just great stuff with amazing flavors. They have... More

Best way to get away from fast food Chinese... the prices are low, the soups are huge and they don't nickel and dime you ^_^
