    Can't say enough good things about Cheu! We had to move our reservation up, they were super accommodating, we ended up getting in rght before Happy Hour ended and they made sure we could order everything we wanted from that menu. And WOW - the creativity of this menu, the execution of every dish (truly cooked to perfection) - I cannot wait to take everyone I know here (mostly so I can justify going back as much as possible). The rangoons!!! The pacman!!! The Land & Sea Roll - then the RABBI roll. Italian hoagie eggroll... I could go on and on. WOW.

    First time here at Cheu. Very cool atmosphere, friendly hostess, good food and service was proficient. But if you’re looking for personality and a welcoming server…. You’ll be disappointed. Our food and drinks came out fast but there was zero personality to any of our servers. They were almost robotic. Food was good, but we live in CC and have Sampan and Double Knot around the corner with servers who actually engage. Probably won’t be back to Cheu but hopefully they school their servers how to be way more engaging and energetic.

    Great birthday dinner date for our friend! Food was delicious, the butternut squash rangoons (I think that was the name) were divine. I’d order 2 plates next next time!!! All our food was delicious, wings, sushi, black pepper yaki udon, miso ramen chicken lettuce wraps, miso cod fried rice!!! No disappointments. Delicious food and sweet staff and service. Will be visiting again! Happy hour pricing could be a bit better compared to the food portions, but overall worth it.

    First time here. A couple of my friends recommended this spot. Parking wasn’t too bad. We lucked out with some off street parking, but there’s also a nearby parking lot. Food and drinks were amazing!! But I was more impressed with the service and how quickly the food came out. We were seated at 6:30 and out the door by 7p. No long waits. We didn’t feel rushed either. We could have stayed longer too. Def 10/10 in my book.

    It says it's a noodle bar but very few noodle options. I didn't find the menu very appetizing. We stared at the menu for a while and nothing jumped out so we just ordered a salad. On the plus side, the beet and avocado salad was yummy.

    Food here has definitely gone downhill from the previous location. The sushi rolls from the Nunu side are pretty flavorless and overpriced. The Cheu side is still good, but not as good as it used to be which is unfortunate!
