It has been some years since visiting Yet Wah in San Rafael, and it seemed the perfect choice for a night out and taking in a movie at the Rafael afterwards (Bab'Aziz). Yet Wah is a classy place, with linens and understated yet elegant decor. I was greeted warmly and given a great seat by the window. As a single diner, it was nice to have the option of noticing the street activity.
I ordered the Scallops with Cashews which also came with water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and fresh snow pea pods. It was all melded together with a light garlic sauce yet each of the ingredients maintained its own fresh flavor. With great service, delicious food and an upscale decor, this is a great date night place to visit, or anytime you want an elegant yet casual atmosphere with great Chinese food. It's also one of the few late night dining options in Marin.
