“Best yam porridge and dishes around!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

My favorite thing to eat here is the yam porridge. They charge per person for it so you get unlimited porridge. The vegetarian options are awesome and they are ready made so they are extremely fast. I love coming to this place. It's also a great option for the nights that they are open late.

I frequent this restaurant and their service is extremely friendly. I sometimes crave the food here.

“One of Irvine's Best”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Yu's Garden is one of the better Taiwanese/Chinese restaurants in an area that has lots of them.

I love their great, unusual dishes, at least unusual for American palates when it comes to Chinese food. They have deep fried pig intestines, sauteed chitterlings, sauteed pig stomach, pig liver and more. It is just great stuff with amazing flavors.

They have a lot of familiar dishes for the unadventurous like Kung Pao Beef, Lamb (or Beef) with Scallions, etc, but the true greatness of this place in their off beat items.

You can order off the menu or they have a dozen dishes already done that you can choose from.

Cash only up to $20, then you can use a card.
