We have been to Liu's before with a lovely meal, but today the dishes were average and the staff was having a problem with service. Sunday for lunch, we got a table right away, but no one took our order for at least 15 minutes. Drank alot of tea! Other tables were having the same problem. Finally, we flagged a... More

It is best to go with someone who knows the variety of food offered here. Dumpling fans will be very happy as you can get all sorts of steamed or juicy dumplings (in broth). I was surprised that they use MSG but they kindly left it out of all food served at our table. Most dishes seem to have pork... More

We have been looking for a Chinese Place since Gu's left. If you liked them, you will like Liu's. We went with friends and such a good sign when the Chinese are filling up the restaurant. I was so glad to see that they had pictures of some of the dishes. Also, the menu is in American and Chinese. A... More

Had a craving last Wednesday and went, but they are closed on Wednesdays! Went today and the place was packed. You know it has to be good when predominately there are Asians eating there. Servings were generous and tasty. Had the pork pan fried dumplings and orange chicken. Excellent and had plenty to take home!

We got both types of the soup dumplings and both were amazing! We can't wait to go back to get more dumplings. The dumplings were so great as an appetizer that we ordered mainly more dumplings as our meal. We also ordered green beans, however, which were also really good. Can't wait to go back

Just tried Chef Liu for the first time. I highly recommend the seaweed appetizer, I could have made a meal of just that. Also enjoyed the pork, shrimp & leek dumplings and the scallion beef. Service was fast & friendly. The dining room was very clean and inviting. And prices were very reasonable. It's a bit of a drive from... More

We have dined here a number of times and had a bad dish. Last night we shared some hot & sour soup and leek pies as an appetizer and I realized I could make an entire meal out of those 2 dishes. The leeks appeared to be young leeks and were very young and tender. To my taste, the hot... More

Tried the Chinese restaurant and loved the presentation of the food, the price, service, and large menu. Tried a few dishes and thought all were average or slightly over. Good place to try if you want to check out a new place but not exceptional for taste by my taste buds. Got a few other choices of Chinese restaurants I... More

Chef Liu was an excellent choice for Sunday afternoon birthday celebration. My absolute favorites were chicken fried rice, eggplant with garlic sauce, and green beans. I am usually a fan of steamed buns but I did not like either of the bun orders. Service was excellent and the place was very clean.
