Uncle Yu's has upscale Chinese food which always comes out fresh and flavorful. it is in a nice setting with a not too loud bar where they also have menu service. They serve typical Chinese dishes and specialties. Shrimp entrees are excellent. Have enjoyed having lunch and dinner with family, friends, or with my wife. Larger parties can reserve space... More

We have been dinning here for years, both in the restaurant and for take out. The spicy dishes are the best, very flavorful. If dinning there, service is very good and the wine list is fantastic too.

Unfortunately my daughter and I had the most tasteless Chinese lunch. I'll never go back. Very pricy lunch which is fine if the food is good but our food was very disappointing.

Eating Chinese and white tablecloth service are not ideas that typically go together. And that's what makes Uncle Yu's so special. The restaurant was recommended to me for a business lunch when I was on a trip to San Ramon. The atmosphere was in the direction of fine dining, and the service was quick and formal. The menu included lots... More

Cantonese food is always the same flavors and same combinations. We went out of the box and tried something different. I can't exactly remember what we ordered but it was excellent. Each person ordered something they had not eaten before. It was an awesome dining experience for the five of us. Yes, we will go back. Easy location and plenty... More

Really good Cantonese style food with fast, efficient and friendly service. Decor is a bit eighties chic but that somehow adds to the experience! Easily the best Chinese restaurant in San Ramon.

In San Ramon, a lot of places are expensive. It was the first time we ever went to this restaurant even thought we lived here for 11 years because we would constantly hear it was over-priced for the quality of food. However, I took some visitors there who really wanted to go to this particular restaurant for a Sunday lunch.... More

We have eaten here for over a decade! The food is consistent. The service is pretty good, especially for a Chinese restaurant. White table cloth, full bar make it a very inviting restaurant.

Food is excellent Americanized Mongolian and Szechuan Chinese (not authentic Chinese and not really Hunan). Tasty and served quickly and hot. Lunch specials are a real deal. They are proudly and completely MSG free. Waitpersons in formal attire, efficient, attentive, with classical politely clipped manner. Modern, clean, bright atmosphere. White table cloth. Beer and excellent selection of wines. One of... More
