To the previous reviewer... This is classified under breakfast likely because they serve dim sum. I have dim sum at just about every restaurant that provides it and I do have to say this was the best I've had since Peking Garden was open. I highly recommend Yangtze and have actually eaten here before knowing they even offered dim sum. Their entree's are excellent! This is authentic Chinese cuisine.

Expensive Garbage!
We had been going to this restaurant since 1994. When it recently (2007/2008?) changed owners with all new chefs(!?) the quality and value really nose dived. The ingredients have been changes to ultra cheap. The taste has gone down the tubes. My family, my friends, and I used to go here at least once a week. That has since tapered off to once every few months because of the change in quality/taste. Now we would rather go to Panda Express even though it is a much further to drive.
Don't try the Kung Pao Beef, I guarantee that you WILL BE DISAPPOINTED! (Unless you really wanted a few cups of peanuts with a little beef thrown in.)
The prices have gone way up to try and compensate for their loss of business due to the recent lack of quality.
I'm really mad at the new owners for destroying what was once a great restaurant! I can't imagine it will be much more than another year or two before it goes completely under.

Pros: comfortable sitting and friendly staff

Cons: the dinning room's a lil bit cold sometimes

.

they already change owner and all the chefs on three years ago, can't you taste the big different than before? the chicken feet taste weir ,the rice noodle roll looks like creamy mud, size so small. the moo soo pork is so bad , the worst I ever have, I won't go back anymore.
by the way , Best Dim Sum awarded to Jun Bo Chinese Restaurant in 2006,2007,2008.
looking for the winner of 2009!

I'm sure if I liked the food items more it would have been better (I'm a chinese food and sushi fan, I thought this would be ok) but the majority of the food looked gross and weird, I didn't want to try it. The few things I did try I thought were kinda icky, didnt think anything was good. This is my own opinion though. After about a 15 minute dining experience, my bf and i left and paid $25 for i dont even know what. This is definitely my personal opinion as the other reviews rave about this place. If you want to try dim sum and you dont want to be disappointed, I wouldnt go here unless you go with a dim sum professional who might be able to help you pick out the items based on what you already do like. Just looking at them didnt help us pick them out.

I totally disagree with "nirv" in that review. The Yangtze has excellent food, etc. and has won awards for their Dim Sum and Best Asian Restaurant and I think that is more important than one bad review. We have been going to the Yangtze since it opened in 1982 and surely wouldn't have kept such a faithful return if the food and service and ambiance weren't up to par. We go there once or twice a week for either dine in or take out, and Dim Sum at least twice a month. All the staff are very friendly and attentive and go out of their way to be of help. The majority of reviews are giving 4 and 5 stars, so they must be doing something right!
We have been to other Asian restaurants just to compare, but always return to the Yangtze.

I'm a huge fan of typical Chinese food: Chicken Chow Mein, chicken fried rice and Cream Cheese Won Tons. I tried all of these in 1 trip to Yangtze a few weeks ago and was disappointed because nothing I ordered was better than the Great Pearl in Brooklyn Park. (763) 566-1990‎.

The food was very salty and the cream cheese won tons especially were pretty terrible. They were too hard, small, and difficult to eat. The won tons found at the Great Pearl are the best I've ever had in Minnesota. You can shove an entire won ton dipped in sweet sauce and your eyes will roll into the back of your head because they're so delicious.

Not only was the food at Yagtze below my expectations, but the price was $12 more for the same amount of food at the Great Pearl ($37 compared to $25). So if you want better Chinese food at a lower price, try the Great Pearl. It's located right across the street from Whitle Castle on Zane/Brooklyn Blvd.

My family has been going to Yangtze for the last 24 years and has never been disappointed once. We have tried everything on the menu and their Dim Sum is the best in town. Highly recommend their fabulous Spicy House Shrimp, Volcano Chicken and Imperial Beef. Yangtze is GREAT for any occasion.

The Dim Sum on Saturday and Sunday is great! If you are adventurous try the chicken feet.

I have never ever had a bad dish at here! The pan fried noodles are incredible so are their egg rolls and vegetable and tofu soup. The service is always great, you know you are going to have a fabulous meal when you go there!

I've only tried the dim sum here. Having only tried the dim sum in 1 other Chinese restaurant, I shall not give a comparison. But, can say that some of their dim sum were decently cooked. In particular the ha kao(shrimp dumplings) and siew mai(pork dumplings). Other selections weren't too impressive. The cheong fun(flat noodles with pork in them) were too thick and not fradrant enough. The egg tarts were also not delicate, too hard.

Another stripmall jem. I you feel like passing on LeeAnnChins for a night, go here for a little more dough and enjoy! Frankly, I found the service to be professional, attentive & helpful; never rude, but maybe a little pushy if I were to find any negatives. The ambience is darker in the eve, romantic, if not a little smokey from the smoking section.. but quite a decent place to take a date for great reasonably priced food. I've been here several times over the last 7/8 years, never had I felt disappointed for the money. Entrees are generous portions, enough for two people per item. Seasonal chinese specialty dishes are nice and seemingly authentic. (I'm not Asian) Order to taste/spice if you're sensitive. Priced a little higher than one $, but eat well for 20.00 for two.

We're at a disadvantage in the Twin Cities when it comes to good dim sum. Yangtze is one of a very few choices, and I'd put it at the middle of the albeit short list. The dining rooms are packed on weekends, and the later it gets, the slower the carts get. The secret is to arrive early, before the rush. The dishes were fine, but very heavy on shrimp. I felt like Bubba in Forrest Gump ... shrimp balls, shrimp wraps, shrimp dumplings, shrimp shrimp shrimp...

Went to Dim Sum this past weekend, and it was wonderful! The food was incredible. We experienced none of the delays or lack of service mentioned in other reviews. The food carts came around frequently, service was friendly, and three of us stuffed ourselves for under $40, including tip. We will definitely go back again. A tip: Get there early, when they open.

This had one of the poorest Dim Sums I have experienced, even for MN. The ambience and overall food quality is average, but the service was also incredibly poor for a weekend rush when I was there. Stronger chinese restaurants can be found in the twin cities - the stip mall location is not ideal either.

I really like this place. However, it's a bit far from where I live. I've been there numerous times and especially for dim sum. If they serve dim sum..they're authentic Chinese. Do you know how difficult it is to prepare this speciality??? If you get a chance, try this restaurant out. AT LEAST try the experience of having dim sum ONCE in your life! Don't worry..it's NOT SUSHI.
