Tucked away Chinese gem behind Ryan Park shopping center.

We like the Taiwan style fried basil chicken. Not too healthy, but really good. We have nearly every time as one of our selections.

We rarely miss a chance to either irder in or go to this small, family restaurant. Everyone has a favorite-- mine is orange chicken and crispy beef. Others love the pot stickers, salt and pepper chicken, and the won ton soup.

We went to Yen's in our search for great Chinese. I have to say, the dumplings were amazing. but that was it. orange chicken had too much breading and was bland and my seafood dish was just okay. Probably won't go there again but glad we tried it

I visited Yen's with a friend after work. I had General Tso's chicken; he had Hunan Chicken. Our appetizer was vegetarian spring rolls. The meal was very tasty. I would have liked some vegetables with General Tso but otherwise it as good. The staff is from Taiwan and while they gear their meals towards Western tastes, one can easily order... More

Love me some Yen's. Been going here since the opening. Orange - Eucalyptus tea is the best with the honey-sugar. Best Egg Drop and Hot/Sour soup around. The Seafood soup is outstanding. We have tried about everything here and are regular's with the Pork/string beans, Yen's special Rice and Sesame Chicken. Sauces are light and flavorful. Lunch menu has a... More

This is our "go to" place for Asian fare. While it is a small place that is off the beaten path the food is outstanding. Don't let the small strip mall fool you. It's all about the food. Every dish is made fresh to order with just the right amount of seasoning. Vegetables are fresh and cooked to perfection. A... More

I love this place. its very clean and the food actually looks like real food. some places serve stuff that looks like it came from a box frozen and reheated. this place you know is fresh and made right there for you. they take pride in their food and it really shows. its not your standard restaurant for Asian fare....

On a whim our son, my husband, and I decided to try the food at Yen's Café. They gave us a large menu where items/meals were very clearly laid out and we noticed that they were reasonably priced. The menu specifically pointed out which items were spicy/hot which is important for those of us who should not be eating spicy... More

This place got pretty good reviews over on Yelp, so I order some take out. Kung Pao chicken and Combination Fried Rice. The rice was bland and not fully mixed with all the ingredients. Seems like it was rushed through. The KP was bland and greasy. The location is dark and small but the staff is friendly if somewhat hurried.... More

Tiny Chinese restaurant in suburban setting with very good food. We were two couples with twins and considering the size of the room, the staff went out of their way to be accommodating. They brought high chairs and even provided child proof bowls and silverware. The menu is extensive with various teas and a wide selection of both typical American... More
