“Nice atmosphere, average food...”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Was there recently and liked the very authentic atmosphere and surroundings very much.
However, the buffet was fairly limited and there didn't seem to be many other separate choices.
The day I was there, with a group who had been there before and liked it, the noodles had a definite "burnt" taste to them. It was quite unappetizing really and colored the rest of my meal.
The waitress we had was very pleasant at least!
I would not return in a big hurry.

“Pleased with our meal”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We recently had one of our meetings at the restaurant...dinner followed by a meeting. The food was good and service was very good. Two of our members were sensitive to MSG and the restaurant was able to make three dishes without MSG. All three dishes were very good but it would be nice if they could have more choices with the food additive MSG. This is the second time our club has met at the restaurant for a supper meeting. We will be doing this again at our next year end meeting.

“They really need more staff”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The food here is generally good, but the service is really quite terrible. We quit going to dine in some time ago, and told the management that we would no longer dine in due to the service. They simply need one or two more people working there. So, after a six month hiatus, we tried take-out. A large order for 12 people. Ordered more than an hour in advance for a set time. Still had to wait 20 minutes after we arrived for pick up. Again they just need one or two more people. Sorry we won't even do take out here anymore.

“Take out tanked”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Last night ordered take-out at Leo Fu's, having eaten there about 3 weeks ago & was so impressed!!! Last nights take out was a disaster, the Lemion chicken which is one of my favorites was so tough & dry we could barely eat it!! I was so looking forward to having that!!
The rest of the food was OK, but not like when I ate in a few weeks before!! How disappointing & FOR THE PRICE i PAID FOR THAT FOOD NEVER AGAIN!!! tHE SWEET & SOUR SHRIMP HAD SO MUCH BREADING ON IT WE COULDN'T FIND THE SHRIMP!! I was a major fan of this place for years & years but now the take-out won't be happening again???

“Can almost guarantee you'll love the food.”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

Tonight we just had a hankering for good Szechwan and even though we hadn't been there in quite a while, we knew Fu's would not disappoint.
Large servings of ginger beef, moo-shoo pork and fried rice arrived promptly after ordering and all three were outstanding.
We ordered single dishes of each, along with spring rolls (2) and tea. The bill was about $50 plus tip. The size of the orders was such that it could probably have supported 4 diners. Thank goodness for doggie bags.
The menu is broad, service good and food outstanding. They had a steady stream of clients entering, many of them obviously regulars. Not hard to figure out why.
