Great new ownership, love their food

The restaurant got new ownership by end of 2014. They have lots of menu selections unlike what it used to be with older ownership. We went several times after new ownership, and haven't gotten to try everything yet. Everything was good from rice dish, to pho, to spring rolls so far. My favorite... read more

Yen's is a great little restaurant that serves fresh food made to your order. My favorite is the crepe and their yogurt is wonderful.

We arrived at Yen about 3pm, between lunch and dinner, and were the only guests. Our server was very helpful and nice. I had a curry dish and my husband had noodle soup and both were extremely good. We enjoyed our meal, but the restaurant was located in a neighborhood that made me uneasy.

My wife read that this was one of the favorite restaurants of the chef of True Kitchen in Mobile so we tried it. The atmosphere is nothing special, but the dishes are quite tasty. I ordered a shrimp dish and it was very large and good. My son and his girlfriend are vegatarian so they ordered dishes without meat and... More

Great service, really good food, nice people, never too crowded, though it should be. We'll go back often.

I have eaten in Vietnamese restaurants all over the country, and this one does not merit the high rating shown here on TripAdvisor. The neighborhood is questionable -- some may feel a bit uncomfortable. However the menu is solid and complete. I elected the roll-your-own shrimp spring rolls (enough for two). Of the 20 tables on a Tuesday night, 7-8... More

Hubby and I had lunch here. Wasn't too crowded, but most of the tables were asian - always a great sign in an asian restaurant. The building is unglamorous, but it was clean, and the oriental embroidered tablecloths under glass was a nice touch. The sole waiter was a somber fellow, but he was competent, prompt and polite. The asian... More

Not the best location, but great authentic Vietnamese food for very reasonable prices that is made fresh. Lots of fresh herbs picked from their own garden.

One of my favorite places to eat in Mobile. If I could only get my wife to like it as much as I do! A friend turned me on to this place a few years ago and I am glad he did.
