"After 39 long years of serving the community his beloved food, Cho is finally moving on with his retirement," the post reads. "There are no immediate plans for reopening in the near future. We apologize if this inconveniences anyone."
The post quickly drew comments from loyal customers lamenting the closure but also thanking Yu for decades of dim sum and memories.
"I've been eating Cho's potstickers since 1986," wrote Tyler Aguinaldo. "My kids grew up on them. I knew this day would come at some point ... Congratulations on your retirement Cho. You will be sorely missed!"
Paul Kern, who said that he has eaten there since 1983, described how Yu always remembered his customers.
"His memory is astounding," Kern wrote. "Palo Alto/Los Altos just lost more of its quaint, small town character, and in my mind, there's not a lot of it left."
Until Jan. 25, Cho's is open at 209 1st St. in Los Altos daily from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
