Our family went to Chef Chu's for lunch and the food was fresh and delicious. We shared Prawns in Lobster Sauce, the Green Beans,the Almond Chicken, and the Broccoli Beef. All were very good. Great service.

This is by far the best Chinese place I have been to since I moved to Bay Area last year. I ordered lemon chicken and it was amazing. Everyone on our table appreciated the quality of food

Had most enjoyable Chinese meal at this restaurant. All the flavors are unique and if you are lucky enough to have leftovers, it's great in scrambled eggs or omelet.

We eat here every time we are in the Palo Alto/Mountain View area. Entry has hundreds of photos of Hollywood stars who have eaten here. Food is excellent, fresh and prepared beautifully.
