We have been visiting in chow for probably 30 years now. They have a few signature dishes which are the slippery shrimp, crispy beef and green beans. It's hard for us to venture out and try some of the other dishes yet we always seem to try. We are big soup dumpling fans also and when we tried them this... More

We went to have dinner at Yang Chow after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is quite small with a cosy touch. We didn't have a reservation but we got a table straight away. We decided to try their slippery shrimp, house chicken special and the pork dumplings- everything was delicious! Big portions, they let us take home the food... More

I ordered the Scallops with Hot Garlic Sauce. I would rate it a 9.9 out of 10. The heat level was 3 out of 10 (thus the -0.1 pt on rating). So if you like it hotter, ask them to spice it up! Amazing...I have never had scallops perfectly cooked in a Wok. They did it. For $18.75, there was... More

Went here with my boyfriend who is LAPD and these guys are known for the places to go to eat. It was very clean and right in China Town. Highly recommend the Slippery Shrimp! Portion are generous and the food is outstanding!

Best Chinese Food! Highly reommend the "slippery shrimp", "3 ingredient Kung pao" and "3 ingredient with snow peas".

Just north of downtown Los Angeles sits Chinatown. Yang Chow restaurant is so quick --so fast and so good I will be coming back here many many times! The service was excellent, the place was clean; obviously has many repeat customers, but if you're traveling and you want authentic Chinese, Yang Chow is the place to go. It is also... More

You'd never know it by looking by the outside of the restaurant but this place is very popular and the food was REALLY good. It was part of our package for the Rose Parade Tour. Man, they kept bringing food and bringing food. It was all very good and hot from being freshly cooked. Everything was so tasty. 5 stars

We've been eating here for 25 years. Always the spicy won ton soup, slippery shrimp and green beans in pork sauce. If we have children or others who don't want spicy, then we get an order of lemon chicken. Consistent quality; prompt service. Busy at times, so make a reservation if in doubt. If William is there, I enjoy a... More

Having had a meal at a neighboring restaurant the night before we thought we would give Yang Chow a shot. Upon arrival having walked from our nearby hotel, we found an extremely long line out the door waiting to get in. Being a nice evening we decided to wait which turned out to be approximately 45 minutes. Unlike the night... More

This is a Chinatown icon with pictures of celebrities who have visited an all. Unlike the restaurants in Chinatown New York City, this one is more organized and very popular. The waiters are courteous and efficient. The juicy dumplings are dryish but have a good taste.

Thank Euggen
