Pretty good Chinese for a suburban location. Pretty much what we expected. Good service on the phone when ordering. Accurate timing of food being ready. Super busy place. Certainly not very authentic but typical American/Chinese food. Everything looked about the same color and only tasted slightly different but our gang of 8 was satisfied.

I have ordered food from here for over 10 years. My "go to" is the sesame chicken (with white rice) and chicken lo mein. They're busy around lunch and dinner times, so don't be surprised if you call and get a busy signal. Just hang up and call again.

Enjoyed the food. Busy (which is good!). Liked having soup and egg roll in addition to meal. Will have to go back to try the items others are recommending. Could use better beer selections, but don't know if that's possible...

This place has awesome sesame chicken. I love getting it five star. Spicy. The egg rolls and hot and sour soup also are fantastic. We try and get to Woodbury once a month for yangs. It's worth it. Only downside is their closed on Sunday's.

I have been coming here for years. All the food is good, but the best is their sesame chicken. Haven't found a better place for this dish yet. Whether eat in or take out, the food is good.

Restaurant itself is a little small, so depending on when you go there may be a wait. The food is worth it though. Sweet & Sour Chicken is a great 'go-to'. (I like the shrimp myself, but the chicken is yummy too) Egg Foo Yong is tasty and portions and sharable. It is one of the oldest restaurants in the... More

Worlds most expensive Chinese takeout ever! Not very impressive either. The food is okay but not for how much they charge. Better off driving to Ho Ho.

Small seating area, so you're probably better off calling for take-out. My family and friends have been enjoying Yang's for 20 years, and we'll keep coming back.

It's as good (or bad) as any other Chinese place. I'm not quite sure what the hype is about. We had thethe chicken chow mein, kung pao chicken, and sesame chicken. (Sesame was the best of the three)
