We have enjoyed our lunches at Yang Ming for years. Will miss the restaurant. We will probably make the trip to Cin Cin s often as we can.

I’ve had meals there fairly regularly since 1998 and am very sad to see them go. My favorite dish, as with my wife, was the shrimp in black bean sauce surrounded by eggplant. This was the best Chinese restaurant in the extended area. It will be missed.

Sad to see that Yangming is closing its doors. Really good Chinese food, with a variety of choices and healthy menu options. The steamedcrab dumplings were delicious and the sauce just wonderful. Our entrees - 1) shrimp and scallops in lemongrass sauce was delicious, even though I couldn't taste the lemongrass. Plenty of shrimp, scallops and veggies in a light sauce.2) Wok seared brandy miso shrimp was the best choice, great sauce, 3) angel hair pasta and shrimp, the appetizer size was plenty. Overall, great food, great service.

Another delicious meal at Yangming, but alas probably our last with the imminent closure next weekend. We have enjoyed our visits to Yangming for the past 20+ years, and wish Mr. Wei the best of success in his future ventures.

Keep in mind the noise level is in direct proportion to the restaurant celebrating Chinese New Year. This restaurant is wonderful. I have gone over the last 2 decades many times to celebrate so much in my life and am so sad to see it closing. I really hope the next owner does well for it and considers hiring back the wait staff. We’ve all gotten to know them over so long! My dad always looks forward to getting Richard for a waiter. He remembers their orders every time they go. The staff there have been there for a long time and are always so knowledgeable, pleasant, and on top of their service. I will miss it here, and so will the rest of my family!

Yang Ming is closing. It is our very favorite restaurant
on the entire Main Line.
We will miss the Best Asian Food in the US.
We will miss the gracious Host, so accommodating, friendly and the Best
Lastly, we will miss the extraordinary waiters.
Always the most professional.

Thank You, Yang Ming for all the wonderful Dinners and Special Occasions you gave us.

Yangming is a good restaurant. I've had one of the best vodka martinis I've ever had there. It is supposed to close after the February 2 dinner and I am so sad. It is perfect for me - location, parking, food and service.

I will miss it very much and many of my friends will also.

Simply wonderful food. ( Re: Open Table scheduling) Timing was inaccurate. I called the restaurant for an earlier time and it was easily available. The restaurant filled by the time we left, but it hurts attendance when Open Table says there are only later times available. In the future, I will call the restauant directly...

We've been going to Yangming for many years, take-out usually once each week. The food is very very fine and prepared nicely. Far better than anything in Philly's Chinatown. The only negative is that if you sit at the bar they always have Fox News on - enough to spoil one's appetite.

The food and cocktails are always excellent and you can carry on a real conversation because table cloths, carpets and draperies absorb the sound! It's a great value for the price. I especially love the roasted pear salad.
