Three different kinds of shrimp entrees featured at Uncle Yu's - - its a full menu of yummy Chinese food - - my only disappointment was getting a fork and knife as a set up instead of chop sticks - - but it was a small issue - the food is well worth trying.

I meet good friends from Southern California annually, always for a delightful evening of talking and eating. Any leftovers are always sent home with me!! Special dishes include include wonderfully seasoned but typical Sichuan plates. Since I have been in China four times, I would prefer more heat but I realize that isn't going to be welcomed by most Americans.... More

We had a Prix Fixe menu for an event we attended. The restaurant staff and food were awesome! We were in a separate event room that was a great space.

When you start with fresh fish and produce , its usually means the food with have more favor and no after taste. I had this food to go, so it was quick and convenient.

Never had a bad meal here. The place is always clean, and comfortable. Great wine list for an Asian food place. Every dish I've had has been great...

Uncle Yu's is not a true Chinese cuisine experience but it is very good comfort food with fresh and quality ingredients. A standard take out experience when visiting family in the Walnut Creek area. Never disappoints if expectations are realistic.

This is an longtime establishment with solid food. Probably the best in Lafayette. Extensive menu. Serves wine. Lunch specials $11.50. Good size portions. Nicety: Didn't charge for the hot tea, which some places have started doing. Friendly service. Free parking. NO METERS to have to feed or worry about. 😀

First of all, the food is terrific. A lovely setting without the stuffiness of fine dining. My favorite thing about this place are the drinks. Hopefully you have a DD. If you go for the spicy dishes, definitely treat yourself to a drink.

My family are frequent flyers of UNCLE Yu's takeout Chinese food. We have tried several others, however, nobody else measures up to; the quality of ingredients, consistent execution, and quality sauces. True, UNCLE Yu's may be accurately described as "Americanized-Chinese Food", however, when you are in the mood for something other than pan-roasted cat and dog or skewered lizard; UNCLE... More
