Just OK Chinese food

Visiting from Cherry Hill NJ I was a bit surprised to find what is considered to be very good Chinese food for LA. The restaurant was very crowded on a Saturday night and seating was tight. The wonton soup as well as the spinach tofu soup were both in a tasteless broth which was just a bit above... read more

First let me say: this is the best Chinese food I've ever had. On top of that, it was one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had! When I think about a classic, old school restaurant in LA, this is it. Upon walking in, you feel right at home and immediately begin to think about how many famous people... More

They service was excellent. You get a LOT of food, like a lot. I loved that they brought us warm tea. The food was good. I wish I would have gotten their slippery shrimp though. I heard a lot of good things about it.

I had the Szechuan Orange chicken, pork fried rice, and broccoli, a pork fried dumpling and I tried a chicken wing. It was all very good and I will definitely go back there again. I also recommend it because the customer service was excellent. Definitely worth it. Just know if you have picky children they do not have a kids... More

Yang Chow's has been a China Town restaurant that continues to have excellent quality food at a reasonable price. I've been going there for 40 years and I have never had a bad meal.

Have visited twice in the past month. Great Chinese food and good service. Valet parking behind the restaurant. We liked it so much the first time, we took friends with us last weekend who said it was the best Chinese food they'd ever had. Slippery Shrimp is not to be missed. Great assortment of Gluten Free options.

This is a popular restaurant with good reviews. I can see why. The food is fantastic served in rather large portions. We over ordered and left quite a lot. The service was friendly and efficient. A sound option for Chinese in LA. I would return.

Listen, you have to seriously think before you review. Sometimes it's hard, but you need to steer people in the right direction and that doesn't mean, just post good reviews and say nice stuff. Slippery Shrimp...look up the reviews. (people brag about this dish) It is a very sugary, deep fried, shrimp dish with very little spicy heat to offset... More

We went there at 3:00pm, but it was still full of people. The slippery shrimp is very good, even when it turns cold.
