Four of us went to Uncle Yu’s Restaurant for the first time this past Friday night. We were seated right away and our drink orders were taken. We ordered the Special Dinner for 4 that came with a mixture of appetizers, 4 main dishes and fried rice. The appetizers included prawns, spring rolls and crabmeat puff. All were excellent! After the appetizers the Won Ton Soup was served and it was very tasty. We then were served our main dishes, Mu Shu Pork, Beef and Broccoli, Sweet and Sour Pork and Prawns with Honey Walnut (paid extra) and all were very good. The meal also came with Mixed Fried Rice that was excellent. There was more than enough food for the 4 of us with left overs to go. Service was great and the servers made sure that we had everything we needed. When we first got there about 5:30 there was plenty of tables available but by the time we left the place was packed. All in all I was very impressed with Uncle Yu’s and will be returning in the near future.

Great place to bring the family. We always get the spice orange beef and pan fried noodles but there are so many pages of good food, it's hard to pick. Soups are always good as well

Hubby & I dined there for lunch mid week, and it was very busy. I’m not sure why except for reasonable price and large portions. Large variety of lunch specialties that come with soup, seasonal veggies, and rice. Mine was pretty bland except for the noticeable salt. It was a variety of fish and beef in a brown sauce. Hubby really liked his spicy prawns. It’s obvious that dishes are pre prepared. I do love their wor won ton soup, especially when I’m sick.

We decided to try the Lafayette location of this long time Bay Area dining-especially since we heard the San Ramon location had a fire and closed.
We ordered pot stickers and egg rolls, both were unremarkable and pot stickers were pretty doughy.
We ordered a Sauv Blanc and thought the $54 price for an available $21 to $25 bottle was a little high.
Dinner was shared-Kung Pao, Shrimp Walnuts, Fried rice, Scallops and Veg.
All were ok but nothing stood out and when all finished at $43 per person ( with the wine) I would have much preferred eating in at our local place vs. the venerable Uncle Yus and for a lot less.
Overall the restaurant was very nice nut was hoping for a little wow factor for the price and reputation.

We usually get take out, but have eaten at the restaurant as well.
Food is bland, even when i have ordered extra spices. For example, the hot and sour soup is neither hot nor sour....just sort of gelatinous. Main dishes have good ingredients, but again, lack flavor. Some entrees have noticeable sugar added.
