When I was living on 35th Street, Chef Yu was probably the best bet for dinner since there weren’t really a lot of great restaurants in the part of town. The restaurant is actually really formal looking, and it will probably surprise you how much food you get for what you’re paying (most entrees are $9-$13). The food is great and one entree can easily feed two people. My favorite is the Kung Pao diced chicken, which for some reason is not on their dinner menu (only their lunch one for $6.50), but you can still order it which is more like $9 for dinner.
