Food was great, service was very cold but efficient. She clearly didn’t want to be there.

75 minutes for a table was a bummer especially since we were consistently ordering but I’m glad it was busy for Cheu enough to need the table back. Definitely plan your meal and drinks ahead of time if you’re going on a date because they’re supremely strict with their 75 minute table time

They've done a great job with the outdoor area, the staff was sure to turn our table heater on and confirm we were comfortable. Food was delicious and came out within minutes.

Cheu is my favorite spot in Fishtown! The food is delicious, drinks are creative and well made, and staff is fantastic! The owner, Connor, is one of the friendliest and most welcoming people in the business. To top off all these great things, their happy hour is the best! If you are in Fishtown and don’t hit up Cheu you are missing out.

As always, Cheu/ Nunu was a great experience. We had a reservation at 9pm, and last call for food and drink was at 9:15 -- it was a bit awkward. Perhaps I overlooked it, but we could've arrived earlier had we known!

Service and food is always great! They allow guests to order food from both Cheu and Nunu. It was cold outside but with heat lamps and sitting in between the two buildings helped it feel not as cold.

My Sister and I decided to dine here due to a notification I received from open table about Philadelphia restaurants offering outdoor seating during the City's mandatory closure.

The street parking is horrible! I would arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your reservation so you can find parking. I also suggest rideshare or catching public transportation. Our servers were Charlie (Manager) and Angie and they were very pleasant and accommodating.

We dined during happy hour. The prices were cheaper so this allowed us to try various dishes. The food was very flavorful, left us wanting more! The cocktail Apple saki smash was absolutely delicious; we had 3 each! Only thing that was a blah moment was the side of their dragon roll, it was small for the price. We are looking forward to going back to dine.

We are big fans of Cheu since becoming hooked on their first funky little place on Washington Square, now closed. This was our first trip to Cheu Fishtown, located in a historic renovated horse stable, with a big red door. They seem to have adapted well to urban dining in the time of covid, sharing an array of outside tables on the wide sidewalk and a pleasant open courtyard with Nunu, the restaurant next door. The food was just as delicious as the original location, with many, if not all, of our favorites still on the menu, and many interesting new additions. Their dumpling choices are amazing, the Brussels sprouts tangy, flavorful, inimitable. And the main attraction for us, huge bowls of miso ramen with succulent pork shoulder, fresh arugula, halved soy eggs, a flavorful, complex broth, and those perfect hand pulled ramen noodles. Although we couldn’t view much of the restaurant interior due to the current covid situation, we could experience the bathroom, which was a mini getaway in itself! Cool, hip, funky - with Cheu’s signature street art aesthetic. Highly recommend this spot.

I went here for a happy hour with a friend and we had a fantastic time! We sat in the outdoor area between Nunu and Cheu and the ambiance was perfect. Music was hip and trendy, lighting was really unique and the care taken towards customers and staff in the midst of COVID was extremely thoughtful. As for the food, we had access to both Cheu and Nunu’s HH menus which were AMAZING. We got the skewers, cheese fries, and wings. Absolutely delicious. We also ordered some cocktails which were SO good. The HH deals were priced okay. Service was superior. All in all, incredible experience and will be coming back for more happy hours. Looking forward to trying their dinner!

The cocktails were unique and delicious. The fried chicken steamed buns are awesome, along with the spicy chicken dumplings. The Brisket Ramen is out of this world. I would eat that broth everyday if I could. My wife loved her Miso Ramen, which isn't normally my thing, but it was crazy good. The pork was tender and the broth was on par with the Brisket Ramen. Will definitely be back for more.

My favorite ramen spot. They're doing their best to cater to the current standard with outdoor dining. The street is a little busy right now but you can still have conversation and eat dinner with friends.
