We used to go to Chu's Cafe all the time and be very happy with our order. Unfortunately these days they just seem average. The sesame chicken is dry and overcooked. Chicken Soong is oily. Please bring back the consistency!

Best Chinese food in the area. Our top picks are chicken and broccoli, sweet and sour chicken and pork lo mien. Super quick service too!

Have been going to this restaurant since it opened. Consistent, delicious food. The staff is very business like but efficient and prompt when serving. Hot and Sour soup is both hot and sour-with lots of goodies inside plus NOT a lot of thickener. Which is great. Recommend: any Moo Shu, the BBQ ribs, the green beans, the General, and shrimp...

Very traditional, but well above average Chinese food. The menu is extensive. Portions are generous, and more than fairly priced for this area. Service is professional, yet friendly and prompt. Have consistently enjoyed every menu item selected. Now this comment may sound a little different, and it is meant to be construed as the highest praise - you actually feel... More

This little restaurant on Allen Road is a favorite place to meet for lunch. Food is good and the atmosphere is very peaceful and calm. It's in the little shopping center and has plenty of parking!

Great Chinese Food - NYC style. Good Service & Good Prices. Almost old fashion Chinese Style with Tea & noodles & the works. The Soup & the House Specials are Great. Like being in China Town again! Enjoy!

Very nice people, quick service on take out. Food is consistently good. Dumplings are a great value and on the light side the way I prefer them. Fish dishes are very tasty, as is the Triple Crown combination of beef, chicken and shrimp

This is the best Chinese food I've ever had. Delicious meal from start to finish. Very nice restaurant with great service, too! Have recommended this place to friends and family for years and decided to do the same to anyone reading this. Enjoy!

Whenever we are in NJ, we make time to go to Chu's Cafe. We used to live nearby and always enjoyed their great food, and even now, 16 years later, they continue to amaze us. Everything we have eaten there over the years, and they have a vast menu, has been delicious. The staff is attentive and friendly. We have... More

I recommend the General TSO's chicken and the egg drop soup. I have eaten here several times and have found the food as good as anything from NY. This is a real problem here in West central NJ most of the Chinese food restaurants use sub standard raw materials that translates into substandard food. Chu's is very good. I just... More
