We had the Mongolian beef. It was greasy and gloppy. The rice was fine, as was the vegetable dish. I won't be back. It seemed like the building was old and in need of refreshing.

Ate here a week ago and had a great meal. Soup, pork fried rice, and Mongolian Beef were delicious! Waitress was attentive and answered all of the questions we had about the many different choices. Will return.

I practically grew up in this restaurant. My family went here a couple times a month for everything from birthdays and special occasions to just dinner. Fittingly, Lieu's set the taste bar for my opinion of several dishes: almond chicken, sweet and sour chicken, Mongolian beef, chow mein, mooshu chicken, and egg flower soup. These are my favorite dishes and... More

Great food and atmosphere at a reasonable price. Servings are generous and could be shared. Large parties can be accommodated.

This used to be a flavorful and lively place. Tonight we decided the clientele was "senior" because The food was so incredibly bland. We could not tell if the garlic chicken was chicken or tofu. The pork was flavorless. This is a formerly proud restaurant needing to be retired.

Since my last review, Lieu's has closed and then re-opened. Unfortunately, not much has improved ... and to some extent, the food for the most part was not very good this time ... nor was a couple of the dishes even remotely authentic for that matter. These dishes had a Korean bent to them.

Trusting Trip Advisor comments many times before, we went with great expectations. Food was terrible - greasy, bland, lukewarm etc. A bucket on the floor was catching some waterleak from above despite weather outside was warm and sunny - all YUK!
