We tried this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend and really enjoyed our meal. The menu is diverse and we tried six different entrees. Overall the food was very good. We liked some dishes more than others, but the plates were empty at the end of the evening. Good size portions. Enjoyed the spring rolls and crab wonton appetizers also.

Order was wrong and server didn’t check to see how our meal was to correct until 20 minutes had last. Ordered Lo me in noodles and it had exactly 5 pieces of beef in it. Actually counted as it was shocking to see so little in the meal. Other vegetables include a few shaved carrot pieces and some green onion slivers.
Will not return. Way overrated!

$15.00 for glass of house Chardonnay is ridiculous. Food only average so overpriced. Have dined there before and feel success has ruined what was a good dinning experience. Won’t be back.

This is a favorite spot for the wife and I so when a friend was in town on business it was a no brainer to grab a table for dinner and some catching up. Everything on the menu is great but I really like their take on Cashew Chicken. Their beef entrees are also always excellence as is the Sesame Chicken.

I have always loved the food at Yao Fuzi but had an unexpected wonder happen on this visit. I asked the bartender if he could make me a French 75 and not only did he comply, it was the best I have ever had. It was even better than the one I had recently at a French restaurant.

Consistently excellent and consistent food. The Spicy Beef is our favorite....and don't miss out on the Tempura Halibut. There is a quality wine list with a good range of selections. The staff is attentive without being intrusive and the serving cadence is well done so you feel neither neglected or rushed so you can enjoy each course and your dining companions. The noise level is such that comfortable conversation is easily accomplished.

As always, it was delicious! We are regulars there, and we get the same things every time! Why change perfection?! Nearly all of the servers there know our usuals, so we don't need to repeat them each time! The food, service and comforting atmosphere are what keeps us going back there, It's one of our favorite places to dine at!

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.

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.
