This is not your usual, small family restaurant. It is large and upscale. Service is very professional. Food is good. Prices are high.

If you like standard choices prepared well this is definitely the place for you. During lunch hour, it's very busy but there's quick turnover. If you want to host a large crowd or a private party, reserve space upstairs in the more private area.

Ate here with my adult daughter, her husband and 2 yr old grandson. They seemed very accommodating to families, crayons and pictures to color and general tolerance. The food was more tasty than I expected. Cooked and seasoned well. Hunan chicken is what I got and it had a perfect spicey kick.

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
