“Chu's Delicious Cafe”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The only place for chinese food in the Bedminster/Basking Ridge area in my opinion. I order in or take out at least once a week. My only gripe is the burnt wontons every time!

“Convenient, Reasonable and Better than Average”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I chose "average" as a rating only because I didn't feel that I could make it a "very good". But it is certainly closer to "very good" than "average".

As for the restaurant itself, the food is good, from the soups to the appetizers to the entrees.

For residents of The Hills community, this is a great alternative to going "off the mountain" for a good meal, especially after a long day of work.

They have a full range of menu selections, typical of most Chinese restaurants. These include the simple rice and noodle dishes, to the more exotic chef's specialties.

There is little more than one can say about this restaurant. Try it, you'll like it.

The walls were the tables were dirty, gross. Service was poor, i ask to be seted at one pm two of us for table of four and was denied. My observance their were asian descents seat at tables of four and they were two guest. I suppose their are new ownere and the restaurant is done.

“Food quality decreasing.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I have been going to Chu's cafe for several years. In the past, the food was very good and consistent. Lately, however, the food has lost it's consistency. Some dishes, particularly from the special Chinese menu, are still very good, but others have been mediocre. On a recent trip, the Sesame Chicken was overcooked (burned) and gristly! I also bit into a large chunk of bone in this supposedly boneless chicken dish. The remaining meals at the table were average. Many of the appetizers have been coming out greasy. if you order a soda, be prepared for a tiny bottle.

The service tends to be very good and the restaurant is efficient enough to get in and out for a business lunch. I hope that they get control over the kitchen and the food quality returns to what is was a few years ago.

“Chu's - best Chinese food in Basking Ridge and excellent service (frequent customer)”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The service is consistently great, as is the food, and the cleanliness. I am not sure why any one would go to any other Chinese restaurant and town. There is one closer to me that delivers but this is worth the drive.
Wished they delivered but they would probably need 6 drivers bc most locals LOVE this place.

There is no bar, and the patio is okay
