There aren’t many options for finer dining when it comes to Chinese food. Most of them are your every day casual sit-down spots or the enormous amount of quick-service grab and go that flood the city. Oh Yeah! China Bistro changes that with a nicer, sleek, dining experience. It’s been a long time since my first visit there many years ago

I stopped by with some friends and we all ordered a variety of different dishes off of the menu.
But first we started off with hot & sour soup and egg drop soup. Hot & sour soup is on my top ten list of favorite soups. Their’s was very flavorful and more on the sour side than hot. I would have liked a little more heat to it but it was still delicious.
Our group ordered a variety of different dishes like the pad thai, drunken noodles, over the mountain (kung pao), sweet & sour shrimp and more. The lunches were all served in bento boxes and ran roughly $10-11 and came with rice, soup, eggrolls and garden tempura. That was a bunch of food for roughly $10. Here’s a sample of what was at our table.
Everyone liked their meals for the most part. Probably the one exception was the pad thai which fell a little flat for some of us. The noodles were bit on the dry side and probably could have used a little more sauce or something to give it some pop. There wasn’t much heat or to be honest, much flavor to it.
Everything else was well received especially the spicy pork and over the mountain dishes. The sauce ratio was spot on in those meals and there was so much food that not a single person left hungry. Most of what we had were your standard Chinese fare but a noticeable step up from the quick service places in town.
Would I put it as my favorite Chinese place in town? Probably not in my top two but it’s up there and noteworthy.
What’s also nice about Oh Yeah is they really cater to vegetarians too if that’s your thing. It’s often brought up as a place for many people to go to with dietary restrictions.
On top of that, the people that operate the place are incredibly nice. They really take care of everyone and it shows with their constant repeat clientele.
Here’s the lunch, dinner and Chinese menu that can also be found on their website:
