Chu’s has been a reliable and consistent “go too” local Chinese restaurant for many years. With recent new ownership, the food is inconsistent but mostly consistently awful. The eat in experience in the dining room is equally bad bordering on amateurish chaos. What a shame.

Chu s Cafe came highly recommended, so I was eager to try it. The place was empty at dinner time so I was a bit skeptical. We were seated right away and given water and fried noodles with only saying " four" when we walked...More

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!
