This was a friday night and we were hungry and wanted to sit and eat a good meal. Stopped in no reservation no wait and got seated right away. We sat in the little patio like area. Good service and great food.

The service was excellent. The staff was obviously well trained. Sadly all of our entrees tasted the same and were a overcooked. The food was the week link on this Saturday night. Thought we would try again but too many restaurants around to go back.

Been going to Uncle Yu's for over 25 years when I first went to Saint Mary's College. Its just the place to go when you want the best Chinese food. The crab rangoon is the best ever!
