Food was delicious! Nothing like their soup dumplings. Service could’ve been a little better, but will definitely be back soon.

Yao Fuzi is always consistently great. The food is great and is the rare Chinese fine dining establishment. Can't recommend more highly.

Traveling in Dallas area for business, we decided to avoid the TexMex scene and were delighted to find this gem of a restaurant. Attentive, helpful staff and exquisitely prepared food. We especially loved the 5 spice spare ribs which were tender and meaty. My black pepper beef with brown sauce, garlic, and scallions was perfectly carmelized and the beef was lean and tender. I couldn't stop myself from finishing this ample portion. My wife's General Yao's chicken was a nice twist on a familiar theme with Hoison based sauce, delicious breast chicken with water chestnuts and broccoli. We went for the coconut ice cream and strawberry ice cream for dessert to counter a little heat from our entrees. This was the only mediocre part of the meal. I will be back next time I am in Plano!

Yao Fuzi is always the best. From the time you walk in the drinks and the food are a unique experience. My personal favs are the Tempura Halibut and the Soft Shell Crab. There are many others to chose from. Always worth the drive from Denison Texas.

Fuzi Friday’s! That is what I call it. Soft shell crab, Shanghai lobster, vegetable fried rice, black peppered beef, snow pea leaves. We started with West Lake soup and soup dumplings. Nice red wine from St. Francis and finished with bread pudding. A great night with friends.

We go here frequently as the food is excellent. Service this time was somewhat marginal. The waitress, who wrote nothing down, forgot one of our items (kale salad). Otherwise, excellent

I took my Mom (89 years old) and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner with great wine. George, our waiter, took excellent care of us. All the staff are wonderful, including Chris, the owner, who came by our table to say hello. This is the BEST Asian restaurant in the Dallas area. You won't be disappointed.

As usual, our food was delicious. Our waiter was fine, but he did mix up the two bills between the two couples and it had to be redone. It wasn't anything to deter us from returning!

Two entrees were very salty. We left most on our plates.
The waitress was very rude, stretching across my way too close to my wife’s face.
I complained to her and told he to move to the other side. She did so, but a few minutes later she did the same thing.
We used to be regulars there, but it will be a long time before we go back

Don’t expect authentic Chinese food here. Taste wise, it’s ok. I was turned off by our server’s disappointment when I gave him the discount coupon. This never happened with the other restaurants I have been to.

Main issue : Service was not personable and rushed. This was a Valentines dinner and the reservation was for 8:45 pm. Appetizer was brought out and 5 minutes later the main dish. At the end of the entree, around 9:30, a cold approach on desert and check was presented, with the waitress visibly awaiting payment. The lobster dish, at $38, was a disappointment, my crab dish, the same. Ambience ... meh, although I did like the cleanliness and listerine in the restrooms. Lesson : Don't get greedy and take reservations at the end of the night if you won't be able to handle it with the best food and service quality.

The food was not good as we expected, especially slow braised pork dish, not fresh taste. It seems it’s cooked couple days ago. Waitresses didn’t smile in the whole service. Plates were taken away quickly even we haven’t finished yet. We were very disappointed after meal because Yao Fuzi was one of my favorite restaurants before.
