Because the San Ramon Uncle Yu's burned, we ate at this location...but we have been going to the San Ramon one as long as it has been open. The menu is the same... and the same deliciousness! We ordered Chinese chicken salad, honey walnut prawns, Kung Pao three combo, ten ingredient Hong Kong noodles, string beans and Peking chicken...there were... More

I live nearby so I'm a take out customer, at least once a week. They cook the food, put it in a container and I eat -- no effort on my part and nothing to clean when done. I'm stuck on pork fried rice and their soups. This restaurant has been a local successful restaurant for years, and there are... More

We were blown away. Our prior GF Chinese food foray to a large Chinese food chain left us VERY unimpressed when it came to their GF menu. The portions were small, expensive and frankly had little to no taste. Had the food been good, the portion size and price would probably not have mattered all that much. So - needing... More

Three different kinds of shrimp entrees featured at Uncle Yu's - - its a full menu of yummy Chinese food - - my only disappointment was getting a fork and knife as a set up instead of chop sticks - - but it was a small issue - the food is well worth trying.

I meet good friends from Southern California annually, always for a delightful evening of talking and eating. Any leftovers are always sent home with me!! Special dishes include include wonderfully seasoned but typical Sichuan plates. Since I have been in China four times, I would prefer more heat but I realize that isn't going to be welcomed by most Americans.... More

We had a Prix Fixe menu for an event we attended. The restaurant staff and food were awesome! We were in a separate event room that was a great space.
