Taiwanese Cooking With Love

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... read 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

This is sort of a hole in the wall in a strip mall, but the dining room is clean and charming and as you walk in, the delicious smells of the food envelop you. Prepare for some seriously good Chinese food. The menu is very extensive, and the wait staff doesn't mind explaining the dishes. It was very busy on... More

It IS as good as it gets, both businesswise and foodwise. When traveling, we have a tendency to eat at off hours and it seems to allow us to interact with management and staff. Surroundings have a fast food feel, but don't let that define your eatsperience. My husband and I shared the Crispy Sesame Beef, which was beautifully presented,... More

I'm a relocated NJ girl, and the first thing I looked for when we moved to Ashburn, VA was Chinese food. I have tried many local Chinese restaurants with Yen's Cafe surpassing all by far. First off, I'm a dumpling maniac. I LOVE dumplings. Yen's offers the best dumplings around (try their Taiwanese dumplings) - freshly made, the dough isn't... More

Accidentally stopped by that place one day and realized they have the best food ever. Very clean place. Awesome customer service. Will definitely be back.

We like the food at Yen's. Quality is good and so is the taste. Very limited seating so we prefer to do take out....no issues so far.
