The enticing menu, which boasts occasional seasonal additions like crab and corn soup, regularly features delicate steamed sea bass, lightly crisped lemon sauce chicken, tender and rich Szechuan lamb, an array of seafood (heavy on shrimp), and distinctively flavored vegetarian selections. Gary Chu’s family dinners make an economical option and enable sampling of a variety of tastes and textures. Nestled into the handsome and peaceful jade and black dining room and you’ll be taken care of by the efficient staff.

“Delicious Birthday Lunch”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Not your typical Chinese take-out. Starters included Wor Won Ton Soup and pot stickers, both very good. Ordered family style, fried rice, Chow Mein, Kung Pao chicken, Mongolian beef and Walnuts Prawns!!! All delicious and enough to feed 5 adults. Service was ok, waitress quiet, busser attentive.

“We will not return”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We were in the mood for PF Changs but found Gary Chu's at the address we had for PF.  So we tried it. The woman who led us to our seat and waited on us  was just this side of rude. She did help me find the 3 or 4 things that were gluten free on the extensive menu. I had sizzling rice and chicken soup that was passable and my husband had a prawn dish that he said was "blah".

Rude service and below average food does not add up to a return visit.

“Pleasant Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

The food is very good and the portions are enough to share. It would have been nices, hpowever a large group came in to the adjacent room with lots of kids....who were out of control. And no one did anything to advise their parents to quiet them down.
