We have been going to Chef Chu's for family celebrations, family gatherings for ages. The food is consistently good. The senior Larry Chu still comes to the restaurant everyday, even though now his son Larry Junior is the one running the place. Senior Larry will greet old customers personally, and suggest menu according to the group, always a good combination... More

Los Altos locals and folks from other parts of the Bay Area come to Chef Chu's for consistently good Chinese food. The owners are incredibly friendly, and the service is efficient. There's often a wait, but the restaurant is bigger than you might think, so you won't wait long. You can order to go or have food delivered via a... More

We have been gooing to Chef Chu's over 30 years now! Excellent Chinese food; really original Chinese. And not overpriced like many of the high-tech new places offering medium standard.

I hadn't been to this restaurant for maybe 15 years. It is possible that if you order the few dishes they are famous for such as the chicken salad or if you are a VIP in the field of politics, sports, etc getting a pro cooking for you, you would have a better opinion of your meal that I do....

We often go here to eat, but decided to have take-out from here twice this week. The first time we chose random foods that we did not know and some was disapointing. This time we went for the regular ones that we know and love and were happy. We particularly like the lemon chicken, kung pao prawns or chicken, and... More
