Ever want to run out of a restaurant as fast as you could without paying?.....Went out of our way to eat there with 3 friends who ate there 6 years ago and raved about it. We went on a Thursday at 8pm. Our meal was terrible. Had to add soy sauce to the shrimp and pork wonton soup for flavor.... More

Great food, fast and friendly service. We went there Sunday around noon and wasn't as crowded as what people say it would be.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and we were so glad we took their suggestion. The restaurant was very accommodating to our group (we had 8 kids and 8 adults). The staff is very friendly and the service was super fast. The menu is extensive and the food was delicious. Some of the best Chinese food that... More

over one month on from our holiday and our dinner here is still a highlight! We had the slippery shrimp, orange chicken and chicken and cashew and I'm not sure I could pick a distinct favourite as it was all delicious. The only let down was the steamed dim sims but the rest of the meal would have me going... More

This restaurant got great reviews in our guide book. I thought it was just ordinary the Sizzling rice soup was tasteless, the special Shredded Beef just had a bit of a salty flavor and the Cashew Chicken was forgettable. The much recommended Slipper Shrimp was very nice if a bit too sweet and a huge portion. The staff seemed bored.

Found this Chinese Restaurant on TA and wanted to try it. We, of course, ordered the signature dish of Slippery Shrimp and yes it is really as good as most of the reviews report. The Hot and Sour soup probably the best I have ever had, outside of some fabulous soup I had in China. A large portion and like... More

Coming from Japan as a tourist and visiting LA's Chinatown for the first time in 41 years, I was expecting to enjoy some good ole American style Chinese, but this was more authentic and almost the same as what we can expect in Yokohama's Chinatown. Still, I'm glad that they gave us fortune cookies! Nice and close to the subway... More

The food is very good just dont expect traditional Chinese Food, which might be a good thing or a bad thing just depends on your taste. Must tries are slippery shrimp. Also like the pork fried rice. Dumplings are ok. Servings are large great for family. Services is always fast. I find the inside a bit depressing. Oh and they... More

Came across Yang Chow via Tripdadvisor and so glad I did. Friendly service, huge (American-style) portions and super-tasty food. Would have no hesitation in visiting Yang Chow again.

I stayed at the Best Western Dragongate in Los Angeles because it was in Chinatown and I wanted to visited Yang Chow restaurant. I had written down this restuarant (I read trip advisor reviews)before leaving Idaho on my trip , the hotel clerk recommended it also. I was able to walk to the Hotel from Union Station, check in and... More
