Good, not great Taiwanese food

Spending the night before flying out in the morning so this was close and had good reviews. Small place, and busy at 7:30 on Wednesday night. The row open tables were terrible. One was side by side and the other was in the aisle outside bathrooms. ..so close people would have to turn sideways... read more

We have lived in Ashburn for over 10 years and have just recently discovered Yen's. It is by far the best Chinese food in Ashburn. Pricing is decent, portions are generous. Website is a little difficult to navigate but once you do, you can place your entire order online and receive a discount for doing so. So glad we discovered... More

I've been to Yen's several times with Chinese friends and always enjoyed the food. Best visit was for Chinese New Year - great fish! Good quality and value compared to most Chinese restaurants in this area.

The food had great flavor and the portions were just right. One dish we got was the veggie lo mien - the cool part was that you were able to pick the heat level of this dish. I've never seen that before! Great place:)

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
