I have only eaten here once so far, but I think it was enough to write a short review. I think if you go here expecting run of the mill Americanized Chinese, you'll be disappointed. It seems to be more authentic. Looking inside the dining area you'll see the customers are mostly Asian Americans. The only downside is that the dinner was a little higher priced than the same dishes I normally get from the earlier mentioned average Chinese restaurants, but I think you're paying for quality and authenticity. On the flip side, the lunch specials seem reasonable. I would give it a 4.5 stars if possible, but the friendly carryout employee raised it to a 5. I'll be back soon.

Excellent Chinese food. We had the jumbo shrimp fried rice and the shrimp was fresh, not overcooked, did not taste fishy. There were bean sprouts, carrots, bamboo shoots and egg. Ample amounts. The vegetable egg foo young was also excellent, nicely cooked, lots of broccoli, flavorful sauce. The almond cookies tasted fresh. Plus they stayed open for us while we got there. Highly recommend.

I appreciate this restaurant and these people. The food is terrific, exactly what you hope for from a Chinese restaurant, and the owners seem to truly appreciate your business. I'm glad we have this place in downtown Wheaton.

Great and delightful food, I liked the mood the spot has, and the cashiers were very kind. I will surely visit here again.

If you love saucy Chines food, Fu Yuan is the place for you. Other Chinese restaurants always seem to disappoint me because their dishes aren't saucy like Fu Yuan's. The owners are always very kind and their hard work shines through in the taste of the food. I have yet to find a better Chinese food experience around Wheaton!

This place is obviously one of the most attractive restaurants in the area. Whenever I visit this place I am extremely satisfied. They preserve their high standard service and the topmost level of dishes they provide. You are always happy with this place. Very recommended.

Food is decent. Kinda dissapointed with my Jajjang-whatever-you-call-it. The portion of the sweet and sour chicken lunch special was smaller than expected. It tasted decently. The first smell upon entering is very foul. The mens bathroom smells better than the dining area. Smells like there are issues with the plumbing in the building.

The food is always good here! I would highly recommend the black bean noodles and egg drop soup, while my friends have enjoyed the Mongolian beef, Szechuan chicken, and jjampong. The service is usually pretty good, except for when it is busy, which is to be expected! :)

Solid Chinese restaurant that has been there many years. The food is good enough but not among the best Chinese in the Chicago area. Parking is easy. They have their own lot next door right next to their building. Inside, very clean and a modest but nice interior. Comfortable booths or tables. They provide ice water and hot tea. You also get fortune and almond cookies with your meal. Very quiet inside but they have soft music. My favorite is the Mongolian beef. I also love their fresh kimchi.

My favorite Chinese food. Casual dining. Inexpensive. Quality ingredients. I am picky about meat, and their chicken breast is tender-no gristle. My favorite is crab rangoon and chicken fried rice. A family-run place.

Hot and sour soup, appetizer for two, fried rice and Mongolian beef

Brandon Anderson

My favorite Chinese place in the entire world! The food is delicious and very affordable. It’s pretty quick and works well dining in or carrying out. The folks that run it I’ve been there for years and are very friendly and even recognize my voice when I called in an order. They always throw in a couple extra cookies for me too, which is kind. Kind people, and affordable delicious food, a perfect combination!

Very solid food. Probably best in the area. Unique spicy cabbage, delicious Mongolian beef and noodles. Really should be a Wheaton institution.

Wendy R.

The best in the area! They're no better fried rice!!!! Their dishes aren't too sweet like other places!

Christine Larsen

Haven't had their food for a while. Went there yesterday for lunch. I had sweet and sour chicken and hubby had chicken chop suey. Both were delicious. This is real, freshly made food, not something that is pre-made and heated up. I also had an egg roll that was amazing. Very good food, very clean and also easy for me to get in the restaurant in my wheelchair. I would highly recommend Fu Yuan!

I celebrated my nomination today in this great place. I am glad to say that we passed a magnificent evening and the place was surely one of the reasons for the happy celebration. The waiters collaborated in a pleasant manner, the cooking was appetizing and my buddies were so overjoyed. We shall surely visit again for more joyful events. thanks very much.

Great service and delicious Szechuan Shrimp. The meal came with hot green tea and your choice of rice and soup. Everything was just $10, not including tip.

Amazing food and such sweet employees. I come back again and again! They have a great selection of food and personable service. I came for my birthday a year ago and it was my favorite meal. So excited to be back again (:

Tyrone Williams

last night was our first time we visited this restaurant. But It is surely not the last time. We enjoyed the evening a lot with the excellent service, with the excellent cuisine and booze and with the friendly price. We will absolutely come back again.

The best Chinese cuisine of downtown Wheaton! I have lived here for two years and this is my go-to spot. Family owned and operated very kind & friendly staff. The woman there is always serving tables and getting carry out orders out, she works hard and is very polite. Food is always hot and delicious. I have only had carryout but cute and clean dining area as well. I 10/10 recommend if living or visiting Wheaton.


Hot sour soup very yum

I have been here a hand full of times and can say nothing has impressed me here. The food is ok. The egg rolls do not taste homemade. They are rather small and tasteless. The other dishes dont seem to be anything out of the ordinary. As a matter of fact it tastes bland. The only thing I would say that is better than decent was the egg foo young. The ambiance is dated. The water smelled like he or his clothes hadn't been cleaned in a few days. He remelled of body odor which kills the dining experience all together. Not all that welcome of a place. Not sure why there are so many positive reviews. Maybe this place was good once upon a time, but not so much these days.

Solid if unspectacular. Standard Chinese fare, good service, plain interior and decor. Hot and sour soup is good. Few vegetarian options.

Leigh A.

Always consistent and very good! They have the most flavorful fried rice around. I would go there just for that! Love the pan fried noodles and the Happy family!

Love love love. The house tea is so good. Fresh vegetables in the dishes. I like the almond chicken and the hot and sour soup. The portions are very generous. My husband and I share a dinner and add a soup ( because one soup already comes with the dinner.) We have a delicious dinner for about $13. Fortune cookie says “ You will find a hidden gem on Liberty Drive!”

My niece says if she were to die today this would be her last meal. It's good Chinese food that has been consistent for 20+ years. It's American Chinese food. It's not amazing but this place does it well. They have some Korean dishes as well which are good as well. The lunch specials are amazing and a steak. Dinner is a little pricier but well worth it. They also have their own homemade kimchee (a little on the sweeter side but will please most of the eaters and is a good intro to kimchee.

Jonas Terrell

This place is worth a try. They have big portions for convenient rates. Regularly well kept and with awesome vibes. Highly recommended.

American Chinese food that is served with forks. We were given hot black tea and water to drink. I don't even know if they offer other drinks, I didn't see any on the menu. The egg drop soup is the best I have ever had; very strong chicken broth and large egg pieces (We almost thought they were wide egg noodles). The General Tao's chicken and Hong Sue Tofu were very good and the wait staff was very nice, we will definitely be returning to try other entrees..

Abraham Sung

Lunch Special is great here especially in a sunny day

Chris G.

Expensive but fresh and tasty. I went to a couple other local options as they were 15% less expensive for same basic food order: pork efffuyoung., General chicken, egg roll, won ton soup. Fu yuans food is better!

Landen Juarez

Had a great experience in here with my girlfriend. The food comes out quickly and the service is just excellent. Prices are affordable.

Susan Isacson

Delicious meal everything we ordered was outstanding eggrolls vegetable fried rice chicken egg foo yong sesame chicken out of this world and Kung pow shrimp

Hyo-Kyung Lee

They have Korean-Chinese menu items such as Ja-Jiang-Myun and they were all good and authentic. I thought I were in Korea at the first bite.

Regina J.

This is our favorite place for Korean-style Chinese food. We usually order Samsun jajang, tang su yuk, and gochu jap chae - all so good, especially with the spicy cabbage that comes with the meal. My father prefers this little place to the larger well-known establishments Koreans frequent closer to Chicago.


We have eaten here and have ordered out many times and have never been disappointed. A family favorite is the hot and sour soup.
