“Bland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2010

Taste some fermented black bean sauce. Taste some asparagus. (OK, you Alice Walker fans out here in California already know what asparagus tastes like.)

Now ask yourself how anybody could possibly combine these ingredients with beef and come up with a dish that's bland and flavorless. That's what they manage to do at Yet Wah.

Rice is two bucks.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

Chinese food often upsets my stomach, but not at Yet Wah. My taste buds were happy too.

“Yeh wah the best chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2008

In brief, the food was fabulous, the service professional yet relaxed and our waitress her name was Katy ,she is the best. she has great sence of humor ,We enjoyed a late Saturday dinner last weekend on a romantic getaway in San Rafael. Restaurant was still busy at 9:00 but our table was ready and our food deliverered promptly but without rushing us at all. Everyone, especially our server was so pleasant and fun, she introduced us to " ALMOND PRESS DUCK " and sizzling rice prawn and special drinks " TOKYO Icetea " and home made GINGER ALE from REAL GINGER, She treating us like we regular patrons or guests in their home. Other diners seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. Such a great way to spend an evening, we want to go back again soon.

Kind of pricey, but well worth it if you are part of a large group.
