We try to go here at least once a month or we order their take-out. A staple to us is the Happy Family. Lots of good, freshly made food and we always have leftovers. Limited bar and yes soda is served in cans. Atmosphere is not too pretty- think disco meets the 80's, but we go for the quality of food.

Ok, If you are a tourist as I was, probably not a great place to eat. It is in a bad part of town, away from the Gorge and the Rainbow Bridge area. We drove there, just cos, we had time. The only reason we went there was because, the owner lady told us the previous night that she could not seat us for an hour, nor could she fulfill a take out order for an hour. So we figured, the food must be that good. The place was something else before it was a restaurant and looks it. The menu looks like a very standard trifold Chinese menu, that you can find in thousands of other Chinese restaurants around the country. But the food was surprisingly tasty for a restaurant in such a bad neighborhood and one that looked quite unwelcome from the outside. The food is not stupendous, that we would go out of our way to eat there again, but it wasn't disappointing either, that we came out cussing our decision to go. The egg drop soup and the egg plant tofu were very tasty and didn't taste ordinary. The vegetable lo mein was very good as well. The food is w levels above "Not Bad". So go expecting that.

We ate in the lounge. The restrooms were scary. They were very dark and there wasn't any lighting over the stalls. Drinks are served in the cans and the coffee is instant. The food was below average Chinese, one member of our group ordered sweet and sour chicken which was tasteless chicken enclosed in what resembled a hush puppy. Definitely will not return to Chu's.

My husband and I ate here for the first time with some family and we had a great experience. We ordered the "dinner for 8" and were overwhelmed with food. The meal was served family style. There was lots to try and share and even more to take home for leftovers. We all walked out stuffed and happy! I can't belive I never ate here before, I will be back!

This restaurant serves authentic Chinese food, not the pseudo-Chinese foods one normally finds at American chain restaurants. Yes, they do have sweet and sour chicken balls and fortune cookies for the uninitiated (or for those who prefer that sort of thing). But if you have a more adventurous and cosmopolitan palate, ask the charming hostess for whatever the Chinese patrons at the table next to yours are having. You will not be disappointed.
