“Delightfully Tasty Chinese Meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

We eat at Yu's frequently, as the food is authentic and delicious and the staff is very friendly. My favorite is the Moo Goo Gai Pan, and my husband loves the Chicken with Peapods. The sauces are very tasty and the food is very fresh tasting. Very nice quiet atmosphere as well. Highly recommend!

“Awesome orange chicken! (It's not really chinese, but...)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2011

This place has an all you can stuff yourself with lunch buffet. The dishes aren't marked--but they are all good to great! The place is another ma and pa outfit and the staff is mostly or all family members--and they are Chinese. Entrees are fresh and you can specify how hot you want the "hot" choices.

The atmosphere is not good. Clean and sterile, fluorescent lighting and no decor. But, that's not why people flock here at lunch and line up for takeout in the evening.

“Best orange chicken I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2010

I cannot speak for any other dish on their menu, but Yu's has the absolute best orange chicken I've ever had in my life. (The fried rice is pretty good as well.)

My wife and I have gone to Yu's probably a dozen times and have gotten the orange chicken just about every time.

The atmosphere is incredibly bland, and there's usually only one or two overworked servers at a time, but it's totally worth it. Typical dishes are about $6-$8, and you get enough food that you can take it home and have a full meal the next day as well.

The buffet is quality over quantity - only about 10 things to choose from, but they are great.

This place is truly a hidden gem.

“Craving chinese food?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2009

Yu's is my favorite in Mankato. Great food on the hill without the hassle of driving to the mall for Leann Chin's which is just another over-priced chain. Orange chicken is my favorite!! Affortable pricing, especially the lunch buffet. Must try at least once.
