It's our understanding that Uncle Yu's in Livermore has recently changed ownership. We ate lunch there yesterday and were delighted that the food was still very good (maybe a little better) than in the past, and the service was great. Wishing them the best of...More

This is the best Chinese food! The drinks are amazing and the veggies are fresh and plump! I love to pair the aged orange beef with the yutini and finish with the sorbet bomb dessert thing! It is very expensive, but very good food.

Good food, fresh. Unique items along with traditional (American-style!) chinese food. Pot stickers are some of the best around - I like the fat doughy kind, and these are them! A little high priced, but nice to get fresh Chinese.
