Our friend who is local recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. They're slippery shrimp was amazing and there are hot tea was just what I needed today. Established in 1977 they've been a local favorite for many celebrities and government workers in the area. We will definitely be back.

I love Chinese food and haven't had it for a long time. This restaurant has me wanting more. The soups and dinners are all wonderful. This restaurant is in Korea town and a good place to have something to eat after walking and shopping. A fun place with great food.

Almost everything we've ever had at Yang Chow's from Pork Fried Rice to Moo Shu Pork. Service always excellent in a typical Asian Restaurant setting. Located in "China Town" off the beaten track. A little hard to find with a small parking lot in the rear that's attended for peak hours. Don't be afraid to order it's all really special!

Chinatown in LA at night is not an area I felt particularly comfortable with which I guessed from the surprised reaction from our Uber driver en route there. Having said that we were fine. Yang Chow is nothing to write home about from the outside, these are sometimes the best places and definitely so in this case. Excellent service and... More

This is my second visit to Yang Chow. I have a passion for Chinese food and have been to many Chinese restaurants around Los Angeles. Yang Chow is hands down the best! It's a truly an authentic Chinese restaurant, it's located in the heart of Chinatown with many nearby DTLA attractions. The consistency in their service and food is perfect... More

One of the famous restaurants in chinatown, LA. Recommended by locals, we have enjoyed the food - fresh, tasty, large portions. Visited by many celebs/stars- lots of pictures on the walls. Great value for money.

We were in Los Angeles and the Princess thought she'd like to visit LA's ChinaTown. Off we went to the 'Yang Chow'. Completely unpretentious from the outside... once you're in, it's full on old time American Chinese Cafe... tablecloth's and cloth napkins, waiters in vests - very nice. Walls are covered with pics of the famous who've lunched within the... More

I had the 3 taste entree with big tender tasty scallops shrimp and beef. She had cashew chicken with Chicken fried rice. All were super. 4 people service. Zagat awards on the wall. Constant stream of people coming in. Nothing but good here. $25 per person. Left a good tip and we will return.

We went on a Saturday night around 7 pm. I called in advance, asking if two showed up, would there be a wait. They said no. They did not ask if we wanted reservations, because it turns out they accept them. When we arrived, it was full, though we only waited 10 minutes. They like to move people through so... More
