Calling for delivery here can be a difficult process. Absent a website where each listed dish has a corresponding description and photograph, it is extremely difficult to determine how some of these dishes are prepared during any telephone conversation with the staff. With this type of food, the variations and choices in how they are prepared are sometimes very important. Similarly, it was difficult to get straight answers about ingredients in the dishes asked-about. Good? - The dumplings and wonton soup were great. Not so good -- General Tao (chicken isn't soft enough and outside batter isn't crispy-fried enough -- plus -- odd additional ingredients and too much spice), Almond Soo Guy (tough and dark salty sauce used instead of a better gravy-like sauce), rice - dried out quickly. Delivery was relatively quick and prompt.

Ate here frequently while in university. Eating here 15 years later and things haven't changed much. Food is still good - had soup noodles and service was prompt. An added bonus is free parking next to the restaurant - its often a pain to park in Chinatown.

Have been going for years. Best dish is the Braised Beef Brisket Noodle Soup. Nice tender meat with a good amount of vegetables. Cantonese Chow Mein & the Rice Noodle with beef in soya sauce was tasty with a good amount of meat. Can't go wrong if you keep to the old standards.

We were hosting a dinner in our suite for some business colleagues at the Albert and Bay Suites and they recommended Yang Sheng as a good place for chinese take-out. We read some reviews on line and were not sure so went to the restaurant to place our order. The service from the lady who took our order was excellent. Delivery was exactly on time. Our guests enjoyed their meal and all remarked on how good the food was for quality, taste and freshness. Our order was complete as ordered.

On the negative side the food was not piping hot but a little better than warm. The restaurant itself is very tired looking and you would not want to take guests there. However, you will not find better take-out. Their menu is on line so you can review all pricing and options there.

We will definitely keep this recommendation on file for the next time we are in Ottawa and need to do this again.

I picked up ake out when I called on my grand-daughter in Ottawa.
The food was wonderful BUT I just read on the internet that Mr. Warren Kinsella cstates that they served BBG Cat with rice.
He is a reporter that I respect- a musician as well!
How closely are the Ottawa restuarents policed by the dpartment of health?
I am really troubled by the Kinsella report. This restautrent is close to where my grand-daughter lives- it is certainly a favourite- up until now!
