Diner Reviews
  • "Very good Asian food with friendly staff and many main course selections."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This is one of mine and hubby's favorite places to eat. It's definitely the best oriental food in Plano, and they have an excellent wine selection."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Our food and service were excellent as usual. So delicious."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "My husband and I can depend on Fuzi to always deliver great service and delicious food! Thanks for the opportunity to praise a great restaurant!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Food always good. Was disappointed that even after noting on the opentable.com reservation AND telling our server we were celebrating a birthday, we weren't compt'd a dessert or anything. Obviously, NOT the place for a celebration."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I have dined at Yao Fuzi several times and have always been pleased. The food this time was not up to par. The kung pao chicken was okay but not great and the salad was horrible. Tasteless. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Nice place with good food. Great for dates. Get the soup dumplings"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I brought a friend from out of town and she was very impressed. As always, the food is superb..."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "My husband and I dine here often and we are always pleased with our food and wine selection. My favorite is the Fuzi Prawns and my husbands favoriet is the Soft Shell Crab. I tried something new this visit, the Vegetable Clay Pot, it was delicious. My husband had the crispy spicy beef and he loved it. The curry calamari is a "must have." The service is excellent, I highly recommend Yao Fuzi. You will find the food experience is a step above the big name chain restaurants in the Shops at Legacy area."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The service was attentive and quick. The atmosphere was nice. The food amount and quality to price ratio is the downside of the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Visiting friends who had recently moved to Dallas and are still trying new restaurants. Yao Fuzi had good reviews on OT and TripAdvisor, so we gave it a try and all four of us LOVED it. As for the interior, there's just not much you can do to bring "character" to a boxy space in a shopping center. So if you can get past that...and I assume you can if you live in the area since that's where all the restaurants seem to be...then come on in for some really good Asian food! Appetizers....wontons, summer rolls (a freshly-made house version of spring rolls) and lettuce wraps...were all excellent with very fresh ingredients. Garlic shrimp was everyone's fave. Double cooked pork entree, disappointing. Banana eggroll dessert outstanding!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Average quality food. The recommended house specialty, crispy beef ($26) was mostly gristle & fat. We ordered several other menu items, no major complaints but nothing special either."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food at Yao Fuzi is wonderful. We love every appetizer that we've tried - with our favorite being the soup dumplings. The Crispy Beef Entree is amazing. We order a plate of it every time! The drinks are very good. There is an extensive wine list but my favorites are the special martinis - lots of choices and expertly made. Yao Fuzi dishes are unique and this is our "go-to" restaurant for Asian food."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Excellent food and service with a subtle quietness amid a soft setting"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Excellent atmosphere and food. Everything we ordered was exceptional. Service was great. A good place to meet friends and catch up."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Soup dumplings appetizer were amazing. When we bit into them, the soup splashed out into our mouths. The sesame chicken was crispy with a delicious sweet sauce on them."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I have received Yao Fuzi several times, we take guests here often because the service and food are high quality, the atmosphere is nice/intimate and very best part, it is not a chain restaurant - which is unusual for Plano."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Great food with traditional Chinese favorites along with Chinese dishes with a twist. Everything I've ever had here is fantastic. Don't miss the crispy beef! Wine list is extensive and pricy but there are some reasonably priced gems on there. Ask for help pairing a wine. The wine expert will guide you to something wonderful."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "A delicious meal with super service and beautiful atmosphere."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Busy on a Saturday night, make a reservation! This is smaller restaurant, but they do have a nice semi-private room that looked like it could hold 10 or so people. It was a bit loud and tables cramped imo. My husband and I shared blue crab wontons, they were delish! He ordered the crispy beef, and I ordered the shrimp lo mein. We are not super adventerous, so both quite happy with our selections. The shrimp was tender and noodles very good. The crispy beef was also quite good, my husband loved it. The sauce was a little sweet for my taste (I like spicier dishes), but again he loved it. We are definitely planning on returning. Next time I am trying the slow braised pork and the soup dumplings. Yum~"

  • "There is no place in the DFW Metroplex that serves better Chinese food. Service is always appropriately attentive. Good selection of quality wines. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Came here with high expectations. Soup Dumplings were very good but the entrees were very bland. Could have gotten more flavor from Pei Wei or Panda Express for a 1/3 of the price. Servers were efficient but not very friendly until they delivered the check."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "My husband & I go to Yao Fuzi often & bring friends with us as it is one of the few restaurants in Plano that has more creative food. The menu is fairly extensive with a lot of seafood selections. Each time we visit, the service is outstanding. The owners are always on site and everyone who works there seems to genuinely care about the way their customers are treated. One of the owners is very wine knowledgeable, asks the right questions to determine what you like & makes great recommendation. The Fuzi Pawn dish is my favorite as it is decadent & delicious. We have never had a bad experience at Yao Fuzi & we have dinner there often. I highly recommend it to anyone that is growing weary of the multitude of chain restaurants in Plano."

  • "Very good choices on the menu and the food is prepared just right."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Love this place. I've taken business guest there at least 10 times and they are always surprised at the uniqueness and quality of the dishes. I think the fact it doesn't look like much from the outside makes it seem even more special. Make sure to try the crispy beef!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Never knew who our waiter/waitress was as no one ever came by our table to see if we needed anything or make sure the food was OK. We had ordered a bottle of chilled wine which was very nice. The table next to us also had wine with a bucket of ice to keep it chilled as did several other customers who had wine. No one brought an ice bucket to our table or inquired if we would like one for our chilled wine that sat on the table warming up. The food was good but the service needs to be spruced up! Disappointed needless to say ......"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Always a treat. Mongolian beef is killer here. Very tender with a little kick of spice. Kids love the soup dumplings and mild mongolian beef. Wife loves the XO shrimp. Every dish has been very good there. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Seeing that this has been rated higher than another Shanghainese restaurant, we had great expectations. We tried the Xiao Long Bao, which did not have the delicate skin that its supposed to have and did not have enough soup to come out of it. Next was the Lion's Head Meatball, which was one of their chef's specialty and higher priced product, but was fairly bland. The fried rice and double cooked pork was ok but not special. Once again, we may have come in with great expectations, but for the price that you pay for, I may have done better in the take out area near the place I live in."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Ordered Shanghai (xiao long bao) dumplings were OK but not as thin, hot or liquid filled as we are used to. Meatballs (Lions Head) were tasty and interesting texture---surprise cuisine. Shrimp in tea leaves were subtle, flavorful and well prepared...a highlight. Noodles (za jiang mein) had a moderate heat (spice) and may come across as more akin to Sichuan than Shanghai. Everyone ate them though my wife found them too piquant and I found them just right. We did not explore the Americanized menu but it looked sure to please. Overall, this is a great Dallas find that satisfies multiethnic levels of sophistication and has great ambiance and a sophisticated wine list and nice bar compared to other Dallas Chinese restaurant. Try it!"

  • "We have been coming to YF for years. The food is always top notch and service attentive. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Not your typical Chinese food restaurant where you question the quality of the food, nor is it fast food here. The crushed red pepper beef was awesome as usual, very tender and one would know it was a quality cut. The kung pao chicken, same - white meat. We always enjoy our dinners here."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "I was introduced to Yao Fuzi b a friend and immediately found it to be my new favorite restaurant. The food is incredibly fresh and delicious - different than your usual Chinese and so much better with new flavors and combinations. The staff makes you feel like family and takes great care of you. This was my first visit for lunch and I'll definitely be back. Not your usual lunch place, Yao Fuzi is quiet and welcoming with lighting that relaxes. I found it to be a respite from the busy day. This is Plano's best kept secret. I'll be back again very soon!"
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The food here is great but the dishes come out 2 seconds after you order. We wanted to enjoy some wine and drinks and a few appetizers but they were swarming around us to order and bringing things out almost immediately after. It was not a relaxing, dining experience."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "A distinctly different Chinese restaurant with dishes served nowhere else in the Dallas area. The menu selections are delicious, light, and tasty. The surroundings are elegant, and the staff is friendly and eager to accommodate you. Truly a unique experience."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This was easy to rate, because everything was good; not great, but good. The young man who seated us was very nice and attentive. Service was nothing special, but good. Hot & Sour soup was very good, as were the crispy wontons that came with it. Combination fried rice was VERY bland. I had to ask for soy sauce and hot mustard. Would I recommend this restaurant? I suppose I would because there was really no reason NOT to recommend it. However, I think they could step up their game a bit."
    Dined on 3/20/2014

  • "Bar none fresh food great service but busy before 830 pm"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We have searched far and wide in this area for decent Chinese food. Yao Fuzi by far surpasses our expectations. The food is authentic, delicious and beautifully presented. It is not inexpensive but it is worth every penny. Coming from New York, our expectations are high for good Chinese food and Yao Fuzi fits the bill."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We consider this place Asian-fusion with interesting takes on a typical menu. We love it and they never fail to please. They are very accommodating to those with spice intolerance making typically spicy dishes not spicy. The staff is friendly. The only complaint is that they are so good, the place is always packed and it is sometimes difficult to get the reservation time you want. Don't miss the curry calamari or the shredded pork and aged tofu!"
