"Restaurant was understaffed. Food was served in the wrong order - drinks and lst courses at the end, no tea at all (though it was ordered at the beginning). Drinks were weak and insipid. We have had much better experiences at Chu. This was something of a disaster and definitely a great disappointment."

"The hostess was as sweet as could be, she knew that I called ahead to say it was my Father in-laws 93rd birthday!!
We got seated right away.
The food was great, a little slow in coming, but that's what made to order is all about!
They brought a special desert after dinner and sang happy birthday , what more can you ask for?
Priced well!!!

"Their food was really good and so were their cocktails. They have an extensive list of martinis and they know how to make them, which is always a plus :)
We had their tuna tartare, stuffed eggplant with minced pork, and oxtail. All were great tasting, presented beautifully and good portions. Definitely would return. Rockridge is a great little town in general!

"Chu offers well seasoned Chinese food with high quality ingredients and lots of flavor. Service (on Chinese New Year, with a full restaurant, was good in spite of the fact that the restaurant appears a bit understaffed. Pan Pacific wontons were delicious, crispy and full of tasty filling. Kirin Beef shortribs were wonderful. Tender, garlicky and very generous portions. We did not care for the Sichuan Prawns on this visit, they were overcooked, which was too bad as the sauce is spicy, hot and delicious on previous visits."

"We had the pleasure of dining at Chu on Christmas night. They were still busy when we arrived for our 8 o' clock reservation, but we were greeted and seated promptly. We started with cocktails and the special oxtail dumplings, which were deliciously tender and beefy. Next we tried two very different but equally tasty soups: mushroom and chicken with spinach and Hot & Sour. While the mushroom chicken was light and clean tasting without being bland (the slight hint of ginger was wonderful), the Hot & Sour was a well-played symphony of flavors. For our dinner we ordered the Mongolian beef and the special Ants Climb Tree noodles. Both dishes were fantastic. I especially liked balance of the lightly charred chiles with the beef. Overall, everything about this meal, service and the ambiance of Chu was exactly what I would expect from a highly regarded Michelin reviewed restaurant. Chu exceeded my expectations and I will absolutely return."

"We've eaten here before and it was better. Service was slow. Brought brown rice although white ordered. Took forever for drinks to arrive. Wait person slammed plates on the table and disengaged. Service ops abound!"
