You can't argue with the huge ...

You can't argue with the huge popularity of this place - it's an institution. The good news is that the food portions are VERY generous and pretty darned tasty. It's just not *great* - other Chinese restaurants in the Chinatown area can lay claim to that title.

But the heck with semantics - you'll enjoy your eating experience, particularly if you get the very sweet slippery shrimp. If you eat at the restaurant, do

Slippery shrimp and Szechuan is great!

Although Yang Chow's can be crowded and it appears some people have issues with the staff that has not been the case for us. The food has always been well prepared and HOT which is a must for me, I hate food that comes to the table lukewarm. In regards to other restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley that are better I would agree that you can probably find some that are excellent but that doesn't mean the food at YC's ... view more

Unique dining experience in Chinatown

Everyone from sports stars, city officials and Conan O'Brian have eaten at Yang Chow. The slippery shrimp is to die for.

MSG Hazard!!!

Beware! This place uses MSG on everything. If you're like me, it will ruin the rest of your evening like it did mine. Stay Away!!!

I planned my fiance's surprise birthday party (2/28/09) at Yang Chow. We expected 45 guests to attend. Reservations were for 8pm. If not enough guests showed up to fill 4 tables at 8pm, they were going to take the tables away after 8:15.\r
At 8pm none of our 4 tables were ready. At 8:30 one table was ready. When asked what they planned to do about our hungry unseated guests, they said very rudely they had n

Great food and ambiance - well worth the trip to C-Town

My friend and I came here for the first time and everything was WONDERFUL!!! I called four hours ahead ot make reservations, and sooooo happy I did. When we got there at 7, there was a line to the door and we were seated immediately. There was already water and tea set out which was nice. We had Moo Shoo Chicken and the Slippery Shrimp, BOTH WERE SOOOO GOOD!!! One small quip I have is that they should include ri... view more

Sometimes I Crave Slippery Shrimp...

I've been to Yang Chow about 7 times now and I always get the slippery shrimp. I've had bites of other peoples food, and I never really like it (hence the 4 stars, not 5) but the shrimp is so good, that it's worth it just for that dish! I hate to be cliche (everyone loves it) but it really is the best.

Not what I expected!

Canned mushrooms in the wonton soup! YUCK. Cups had bleach smelling residue. Noodles were flooded in sauce, cooks were yelling in the kitching the whole time.

Sooooo tasty

We ordered family style for a group of six and every single dish was excellent. We had the slippery shrimp (everybody's favorite), the dry sauteed string beans, beef with mushrooms and bamboo shoots, house special chicken and the combination fried rice. The dishes did not arrive all at the same time, but since we were all sharing, this was no problem. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this p... view more
