After doing my research about Uncle Yu’s to figure out if they were a safe place to eat at I finally decided to give them a try. They have a gluten free menu built right into their regular menu and after sitting down and speaking to the waiter I learned that all the items on the gluten free menu are dairy free as well. I am really glad my dad was there with me, because I had a hard time understanding his accent at times.
I browsed over my options and a lot of them are very similar just with different variations of meat and vegetables in a similar sauce. They listed the ingredients to the gluten free sauce at the bottom of the page which was nice. I ended up with the Chicken with mixed vegetables in a light brown sauce and my dad ended up with the lemon chicken (not gluten free). Unfortunately you have to pay for rice separately here which was an additional 1.50 per person for white rice or 1.75 for brown rice. We both ended up with the white rice and the food came out relatively quickly. I liked that they brought me out a bottle of gluten free soy sauce without me even asking.
Upon our dishes arriving I was surprised at the portion sizes. They were quite large which was nice. The chicken in both our dishes was all chicken breast which is the only way we would have really liked it so that was good. My dish was pretty bland, but it was gluten free and dairy free so I was happy either way. Wish they would have had a soup option that was gluten free or a little bit more variety on the types of sauces for the gluten free dishes, but either way at least they offer something.
They have three locations in the East Bay.
