I've been coming to this place for some 20 years now and I've always been very pleased with the food selections as well as the service. The ambience is modest and typical Chinese but boy you have to try their Steamed Fish, Bittermelon Beef, Chicken Asparagus soup and everything else. The friends I've invited over have become regular patrons because like me, they simply love the food. Lina, the owner makes sure excellent service is maintained because she is constantly and proactively around. Oh and the cost of their food is such a good deal for anyone!

Love the food and the service... I have been coming here with my family for 8yrs and I've never been disapointed..

I was taken here in 1997 on a first date with my future husband. Although we have moved to various locations in Los Angeles, we could never find the same experience in the new neighborhoods: great food at a reasonable price, friendly and efficient service and always being greeted with "So very nice to see you again!" We love this place and make sure we visit every time we are in the Silverlake area..

I live in the area and as one reviewer said, it didn't look inviting. But I got soup to go a couple times for lunch, then tried the dinners. Everything is fresh, not at all greasy, and it's tasty. The portions are generous, and the last time I went for take-out, the place was filled up, maybe cause they had taken a week off and people missed it. The woman is so friendly and remembered me after just the first time. And the service is good. We like both kinds of noodles and the Chinese broccoli.

On the recommendation of a good friend, we drove from Pasadena to check it out. It didn't look like much from the outside and the neighborhood was a little run down, but once inside I could immediately see why my friend was so insistent that we try it out. The food is some of the best Chinese food we have had anywhere and the prices were almost very reasonable. Chicken fried rice, WonTon soup, and Chow Mein for four for less than $30. The waitress; Lena was friendly and quick with our order even though she was the only waitress and appeared to be running the place. Hope you like it... and keep it to yourself because I don't want it to be crowded the next time we go..

We've going there for 30 years. It's a small shop but the food is terrific and the prices are very reasonable. Try the Lo mein and fried shrimp. The fried won-tons are a nice addition to your meal. Limited seating. Don't be put off by the dumpy neighborhood. Very friendly staff.

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in all of Los Angeles, including the historic Chinatown. This place serves several Chinese delicacies in generous portions. Once you step inside, you will be greeted with a friendly hostess who has worked at Wah's for 35 years. Serving all the food by herself (small restaurant), she does so quickly and always with a beaming smile on her face. The food is delicious. I would have to recommend the House Fried Rice, War Wonton Soup, and some steamed fish. And some fried chicken if you've got a bit more cash to give. Everything on the menu is very cheap and you can easily feed (and fill) a family of four with under $25. This is a family-run business, as you'll notice. An aging couple runs the kitchen while their daughter, who is fairly advanced in years herself, is the hostess. The place's atmosphere and general outdoor image does leave much room for improvement, though. But since it's a little out of the way and generally uninviting to those who don't know of the wonders that await them inside, the place is rarely full. That means quicker service!
