“This really is a take out restaurant”
Review of U Like Chinese

Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 July 2015

If you try to eat in, the place has little atmosphere, food is presented in take out containers. You either buy a bottle of water, if water is your choice, or drink from a tepid water dispenser. However you certainly can eat in if you wish. The other diners will be almost all Asian, a great sign for an Asian restaurant.
Now that being said, the food is very, very good. The only other places in town where you can get dumplings this good (in smaller orders for more money, by the way) are Hua-pei and Kamp-Bo. They have a more extensive menu than most places,some things are sort of unique to them locally, with some really interesting and tasty Thai Curries.. The Sesame Tofu is orders of magnitude better than one might predict. The take out orders are huge and ready within 10 minutes. The food runs spicey. If you do not want very hot, do ask them to not make it hot. They will adjust it...sort of.
For Asian take out, this place holds its' own with anyplace in town. I visited a long time back the first week they were open. The food is greatly improved, hardly the same if you have not been there recently. Don't let the appearance of the place put you off...their food is wonderful in your mouth! If you've read my reviews, you'll recall that I love little hole-in-the -wall places...this one is worth knowing about.

Stopped for lunch at U Like. Ordered the General Tso's Chicken. It was very acceptable and taste was pretty good. It was served with fried rice and broccoli. Not the fanciest place, but I had no problem eating there.

I went to this place because they had a nice looking menu I received in the mail. The outside of the building looked out, but the inside was horrible. The service was sketchy, tables dirty and plenty of clutter around the inside of the building. The cooking area looked very dirty. Will not visit again.
