Been driving by this place for years and was always intrigued by the décor externally. Finally one day out looking for some lunch I decided to go in and give it a try. Turns out there is more to see on the inside then on the outside! What a cool little gem of a place. The food is also very... More

Ive been eating here along with my family for almost 20 years and have always had great food. We carry out and dine in often. My grand children like to eat in due to pleasant setting. The owners and their family will take great care of you. I recommend the Mongolian Beef and Vegetable soup. The price is more than... More

Tae Fu is beautifully decorated. There is a large menu. The family dinners are a great way to try a variety of dishes. Mongolian Beef is fantastic, so is the sizzling rice soup.

I was craving Chinese and needed it delivered so I chose this place based on its online rating. I made the mistake of ordering some things that I knew would not travel well, but even then, I was very disappointed in the quality. The chicken dish was completely bland with no distinct seasoning and overall generic. The rice noodles that... More

Tae Fu definitely ranks among the best Chinese restaurants in the Chicago area (and we have been to many). The decor is like you would find in Chinatown - very ornate. The egg drop soup is a must - rich and tasty with shrimp and many other ingredients. And the pot stickers are excellent. There is a dim sum menu... More

My wife and I ordered the dinner for two. This is our standard order from a Chinese restaurant. The soup is called Sizzling Rice that is broth with bits of chicken and shrimp, mushrooms and some kind of greens. At the table they put a pressed rice block in the broth and it sizzles. Very tasty. Then seriously good egg... More

Our food was delicious. We were patient and polite. Service was not fast but once the food came you understood. It tasted as if it was just made. Sounds stupid but we all have been there with bad microwave or reheated food. This was fresh and delicious. Friendly staff. Great setting, service, and food. Another nice point about this experience... More

Wonderful service... We had 5 adults but got the Meal for 4 ($50-60) and it fed us all. The Pot stickers were great, but the Mongolian Beef was superb! Best I have ever had. Do not judge the food by the decor.... (a word to the wise)

I've been to several Chinatowns -- Boston, San Francisco and Chicago -- and I've traveled to China. Of all the Chinese restaurants I've been to, Tae Fu reigns supreme. I've quite literally been going to this venerable restaurant for 40 years now. l opened in the late 1970s and has been going strong ever since. The restaurant was probably last... More

Hot and sour soup had shrimp and beef in it. Unique presentation. Orange Chicken was not and tender, large portions. Small building but well worth the trip.
