Tucked in a small area up the hill from a sprawling shopping center this little gem serves great food, the service is very accommodating and the price is budget friendly. We were there for lunch on a weekend and the specials are all delicious and varied. A great (and quiet) destination for a pleasant dining experience

If you heed the reviews on Yelp, you can't go wrong. Food is freshly made, tastes good, and better yet, the service is genuinely friendly. It's too bad that so few people stay to dine in.

I order lunch for the office from Uncle Chung's. They have a large variety of dishes. Something for everyone. Food always tastes fresh, short wait time if any at all. Calling in ahead is definitely worth it. The restaurant is very clean. Nicely spaced tables. Great atmosphere.

We have eaten at Uncle Chung's for many years. I am always impressed with the quality of the food and the excellent service from the staff. We have celebrated many a special occasion here. The Chinese Chicken Salad is a refreshing delight and we always order the Walnut Prawns. Prices are in line with what you would expect. If you... More

We stopped on our journey from LA up to Pismo. There is a lunch buffet til 2. We were a bit late for it but it looked good. Lots of veggies and meat options. They have affordable lunch specials. You can get some orange chicken with soup, egg roll, steamed or fried rice for $9. I would love to try... More

The service here is some of the friendliest and most attentive service I have ever experienced. The food is okay, nothing special. The decor is interesting; lots of Chinese decor but a few things left over from whatever it used to be - pastoral European scenery. Lots of parking and the restaurant is towards the back of this shopping center.

I've been enjoying Chinese food here for years and they've never disappointed. From the service to the quality of the food, it always earns top marks. The chicken salad is the best around. If I were on an island and could only eat one salad the rest of my life, the chicken salad from Uncle Chung's would be it. And... More

This restaurant is very close to my home. I wish they had delivery service but they do not. So it is a short drive to pick up my order. The food is made to order and is hot. The taste and value are average. I have yet to eat at the restaurant but if you do try and get a... More

Stopped in for lunch with friends and we were totally blown away with a great meal. The vegetables were very fresh and each dish prepared perfectly. We started with pot sticker, definitely made in-house, beef with green beans, Princess Prawn & Chicken Misu and combo fried rice. For me the only weak dish was the combo fried rice, but everything...
