I hadn't been to Yang Ming for almost 20 years. It is still as wonderful as I remembered, maybe more so. The food was delicious, the service was very friendly but unobtrusive, and the atmosphere was elegant. My family and I celebrated our son's graduation from St. Joseph's University there and had a wonderful, relaxed and delicious meal.

My mom & I went here for mother’s day 2 years in a row. This place is great the food is delicious and the prices aren’t bad. They gave me and my mom a flower for mother’s day which was a nice surprise. The hostess was sweet & sat us quickly.

The food is always delicious! We had a wonderful evening.
There seemed to be only one wait-server in our area. He did is all from removing dirty dishes from vacated tables to cleaning and setting the table, to taking our order, and bringing it to the table. He did a smashing job, however, with an upbeat attitude and made us feel very welcomed!

As always the food was excellent. They have a great variety of both appetizers and entrees which are great for family style eating. My one complaint is around the service. While our server was nice and tried to be attentive, he/she had too many tables to really quickly address our needs. I waited about 10 minutes for a glass of wine - which is way too long. I know that it was a Saturday night, the night before Mother's Day but feel that they should have anticipated the large crowd and staffed appropriately. However, this will not prevent me from recommending it or going back.

Friendly, attentive service, and lots of menu choices. All of our appetizers, entrees, and drinks were very good, with the only complaint being that the shrimp in my Pad Thai was way too salty. Conversation was somewhat difficult because of the noise level in the full dining room. I had mentioned in my comments on my Open Table reservation that this visit was a celebration of my aunt’s 94th birthday, but apparently no one at the restaurant saw my note. This was our first visit — we will go back again to try some of the other interesting menu items.

We have been going there for a long time and this meal was below par. Sauces have changed, Black bean
Shrimp had more bell pepper in than ever an easy,no jalapeno, cheaper way to fill up the dish. The wild pepper chicken had a major change, chicken was not the same and to many red pepper flakes we in it, the past had black pepper.

We were at Yang Ming to celebrate my son’s birthday. Our service was amazingly attentive! The food was fresh, delicious, and tastefully prepared. All our entrees were excellent. The Peking Duck at Yang Ming is well worth the trip—authentic, fresh, tasty, and chef carved table-side. I highly recommend Yang Ming! Thank you.

It's a staple/go to place for Chinese food for my family, took my mom and her 2 friends and some others to dinner and honestly was not great. The waiter whisked away so quickly, one of my guests asked for a soda and the waiter was gone so fast, he couldn't have heard her, and I had to practically yell repeatedly to call him back, he did not stay around long enough to hear the replies when he asked what drinks we wanted and I was embarrassed that he left without asking my moms friend what she wanted. That happened once again when my husband asked for a drink and waiter came and left so darn quickly before husband had a chance to request another drink. Food was a little on the bland side this particular evening... My guests hardly ate anything.

Arrived on time for our reservation for six and were seated at a nice table in the back of the restaurant, which is much bigger than it appears. It is a big place. The service was slow and very attentive, but not a problem. The menu is extensive, but not overwhelming. It has everything you could want and more, but was manageable. The “hot and spicy” dishes were just that, but were not overbearing - they were for people who can’t eat hot food. If you like hot food and cans can handle it then you should order it because it is quite good. The portions are quite large and they served both white and brown rice to the table. We even ordered dessert, which took some time to prepare. It was good but not worth the wait. The restaurant was worth the drive and we would go again as it was minutes from the Blue Route - just past Villanova - and had plenty of parking.

We were welcomed when we arrived, even though we had two adolescent boys with us and arrived late for a Saturday dinner, when they were fully booked. They seated us quickly and responded promptly and willingly to whatever we requested, even helping the boys figure out what to drink. They had counted on a cola, but that was one of the few things Yang Ming did not offer. They finally came up with an unusual sort of lemonade which the boys happily finished off.

We shared most of our choices. And even though we were trying a number of dishes, and several were interesting combinations of ingredients to and cuisines, everything they brought we all enjoyed. Food is well prepared, clearly made to order, and abundant enough that as much as we enjoyed our choices, there was plenty left to take home.

I have been there for lunch and dinner. The food is always freshly and well-prepared, and the service courteous and friendly. Great place for families, though they also have more intimate seating for dates. Did I mention banquets? Somehow they manage all of this excellent food and service with banquet hall events going on as well.

WE went there as I saw them on Fox 29 Good Day Philadelphia celebrating Chinese New Year. There was a whole fried fish - one of my Cuban husband's favorite meal when we go down to Miami. So I made a reservation and we went. The fish did not disappoint and the sauce served with it was delicious! Everything was wonderful, service was very attentive, and it was worth the drive from NJ. The even treated us to a free dessert for our anniversary. We will go back.

Going to Yang Ming is a special occasion for us. The food was wonderful. We started off with 2 Spring Rolls each. I had the Caesar Salad with pears--should have ordered two of them, as it was that good. Next, the chicken with coconut. There was so much, I took some home for lunch the next day. Two of our friends came along-their first time. They said that they'd be back.

Have always enjoyed dining there when we visit an aunt in the area. Food is always exceedingly tasty. I love the seasonal specials and find that they are willing to "step out of the comfort zone" in combining interesting ingredients. Service is excellent and friendly. Atmosphere is very comfortable. For a neighborhood restaurant it deserves a "5".
