Haven't tried the place for sit-down yet, but the take-out food was decidedly mediocre, esp given the price. We'll probably keep looking.

We have been eating at Chef Chu's since 1970, and it gets better and better everytime we eat there. Larry Chu and his children are usually there, so be sure to say Hi. THey are an amazing food and restaurant ICON in the Bay Area.

There were 6 of us in our party so we had the opportunity to taste several dishes. Each was creatively prepared, cooked perfectly, and absolutely delicious. The service couldn't have been better. We felt well taken care of, even with a rambunctious 2 year-old aboard! Cheerful decor and atmosphere, we were able to hear each other and carry on a conversation even though they had a full house). I highly recommend Chef Chu's and his exquisitely prepared dishes.

We have eaten here for many years and never had a bad meal. The service is always excellent and the atmosphere is nice. We often eat upstairs where it is a bit quieter. Take out is good too.

My aunt lives near here, and loves to talk of the celebrities that make a point of dining here when in town (even Justin Bieber is on the photo wall). So we had to come! We order family style so we could try a lot of dishes. The wonton soup and spring rolls were great starters, and we split their famous Chinese chicken salad (a meal in itself with thinly sliced fried chicken bits with icebergs lettuce, rice noodles and carrots).

For entrees we had Mongolian Beef and Prawns with Fresh Vegetables. Portion sizes weren't huge but it was enough for us (each person received a large bowl of white rice but brown was available). Our server was quick and friendly, and kept a keen eye on the entire dining room. They do a brisk takeout business, so if the wait for a table is too long, consider this option.
