    Eating at the bar at Yamo gives the satisfaction of feeling like you’re grabbing a quick bite on the way home from work in Blade Runner

    Limited seating space. These noodles with beef were amazing & very filling. Mango salad is eh... and it's spicy. They only have / sell bottled water.

    Delicious and super cheap. There is one line for both dine in and take out, so make sure you're in the right place in line. Get the house noodles with beef and a Mexican coke

  • Ben C.

    Love the house noodles and spicy cold noodles. There's barely any seating in the tiny hot space, so be prepared to find somewhere else to eat. I recommend Dolores Park a few blocks away.

    Comparable to Mission Chinese in greasiness, but less expensive. The cold noodles were great, but more lukewarm than cold.

    Sarah · April 18

    Expect to wait 15-20min for takeaway. House noodles are crazy good.

    Tea salad is great (and spicy). The fried rice special is delicious. Well worth the wait and smoke.

    One of the best if not THE best Tea Leaf Salad's I've ever had. Yamo House Special Noodle #protip: mix it WELL, let it sit for a few minutes and THEN enjoy (oh, and NO PICTURES! tee hee hee)

    Starry Kitchen · February 9
  • Joshua H.

    Eating in or taking out, Yamo never fails to satisfy. They've changed their tea salad recently though, making it sweeter. Chicken noodle soup, house noodles, and samusas are all good.

    Chicken curry with noodles

    Don't take the angry asian ladies personally, it's part of the experience

  • Jonathan E.

    Tea leaf salad, cold noodles, and the chicken noodle soup are favorites but you can't go wrong with anything here. Splurge and order half the menu; it will only cost $30.

    Love this place to death.

    House Yano noodles with beef

    I hate having to beg them for water since they aren't the friendliest.

    Chad Pugh · November 15, 2014
  • Ian S.

    Forget $4 toast. If you've only got a few dollars to spend save it for dinner here.

    Ian Silber · November 9, 2014
  • Lindsey D.

    Authentic and delicious. Small place but worth the wait. Tea salad and house noodles with chicken (or beef)... AMAZE. 🙌

    Lindsey Duff · November 6, 2014
  • Henry W.

    Hit or miss at times. You will smell like oil after you leave.

    Henry Wu · October 11, 2014
  • Marina M.

    Chicken salad with hot perfectly crisped chicken, crunchy wide noodles, red onion and chili. Known for good, cheap food and no frills service. Always a unique experience. Those ladies are badass OGs

    Cheap, hearty, and delicious. I've been won over.

    Good value but the portion is small.

    Don't try to take pictures in here. Just got yelled at trying to do so.

  • Doris C.

    I agree about house noodles and tea leaf salad!! Both amazing. Take away or snag one of the few seats at the bar (smoky but totally worth the yums!)

    Doris Cacoilo · September 4, 2014
  • Kylie

    The ladies are mean, there's generally a line, and everything is $6. Definitely go for the tea leaf salad.

    Kylie · August 26, 2014

    The tea leaf salad is crunchy, sweet & spicy all at once! The chicken noodle soup is with a splash of coconut. The house noodles are tasty/oily while the chicken noodles aren't. Skip the spring rolls. Read more

    house beef noodles. fish curry. mango salad.

    Joshua Nguyen · August 12, 2014
  • Mark B.

    House noodles are great. Skip the sriracha and add the chili oil instead.

    Mark Brenneman · August 10, 2014
  • Jeff W.

    Get there early to avoid the line. Maybe go in a pair (or alone) and order noodles with chicken, dumplings, and tea salad. Cash.

    Jeff Weinstein · August 9, 2014
  • Jimmy H.

    The grease soaked crabby old ladies who make the food are amazing, and so is the food. It's also cheap as hell.

    Jimmy Hooker · August 7, 2014
  • Noah T.

    Amazing noodle soups!

    Noah Tizzle · August 7, 2014
  • Matt D.

    Stay patient. Don't rush anyone. Get some noodles.
