We ordered takeout online. It was very easy and efficient. It took about 30 minutes to get the food when they weren't very busy. The potstickers were huge and gingery which we love. The beef and asparagus with black bean sauce was delicious. There were a few tough asparagus spears. The honey walnut shrimp was good but not as memorable... More

The spicy beef was decent, although it was less beef than filler of celery, peppers and onions. The shrimp lo mein was very bland. The shrimp were nice and large, but they were few and had no flavor. Wouldn't do this place again.

I've eaten here now and then over the years. The service is unfailingly friendly and attentive. The food is consistently delicious and plentiful. I'm a fan of hot and sour soup - it's great here. On my last visit, I went with a friend and we had an excellent table by the window. We talked for 3 hours. There never... More

Simon has been in Marin [and around the Bay Area] for a long time... yet he is a regular fixture at his San Rafael restaurant and knows most of the locals. His foods offer so many flavors, and you can dine in the large restaurant or in the enclosed patio by the street. It is rated one of the 25... More

We frequently dined at this restaurant when it was located in Larkspur Landing. Food: Excellent. Service: Attentive. Two decades later, we dined for the first time at its present location on Fourth Street. We were generally disappointed. The pot stickers were served without hoisin sauce. When we pointed this out to the waiter, he directed us to the containers of... More

We went there for lunch, having eaten there several times a few years ago. At that time the food (and service) were very good. And there used to be a Yet Wah restaurant in San Francisco that is now out of business. So, there was only one other table occupied when we arrived, but we waited almost 10 minutes before... More

We dropped in for an early dinner and were pleasantly greeted and served. Large menu selection. Good tea. Nice to know that this restaurant stays open late to attract after the event clientele.

Yet Wah, while seldom crowded, is very good takeout spot. Nice variety and quick. Parking after 6 p.m. is available on the street. Service is efficient.

Because of the inviting appearance of the dining area from the street, we stopped in for a quick lunch. There is a large main dining room in the rear, and a windowed dining area with a half-dozen tables or so. It was bright and immaculate.Table cloths were an added plus. Prices were reasonable. Spring rolls and egg drop soup were... More
