Love this place!

This used to be a once a week destination as a teen 30 years ago. Moved away and this was the first opportunity to return while in the area. I always thought it was the best Chinese food at the time, and I could never find another place to match it since (food wise). The restaurant hasn't... read more

Food was runny and outdated. Everything had a weird taste. The area outside is not clean or nice looking. I'll stick with lucky wok in garden city

There are many delightful dishes to choose from, and no one should go away hungry, no matter what you order. Service was delightful. It's a family business, and they love customers' kids, too. The tea was great. Pay no attention to appearances--it's a wonderful restaurant.

The Ten Yen is a staple in the Westland area, it is an older building inside and out: however, once you taste the food, it is incredible! Best sweet and sour around for miles. The food is always cooked on the premises, served hot, and with great service. The restaurant has both silverware or chop sticks, and the chinese tea... More

Okay, sure. This place is old and dusty. The carpet is worn. The decor hasn't been updated much since the LBJ administration. And never mind that "Yen" isn't even a Chinese unit of currency. This place has CHARACTER and there's something to be said for longevity. Scores of loyal customers have kept this place open for decades to enjoy heaping... More

My husband and I went for the first time in early December. It was so good that we decided to take the family there for our Christmas Day dinner! We have been back numerous times and we absolutely love everything about it. The food is great and they give so much, you have enough for another meal to take home!... More

Although it has been a couple years since I've been home to Westland, I can tell you Ten Yen has the best egg rolls I've had and their plum sauce fantastic too. I love the food and get cravings regularly. Just sad because I can't staisfy those cravings because I livve in Texas and have for the last 23 years.

I have been doing business with Ten Yen for 20 years, they are by far my favorite Chinese Restaurant around. The food is delicious as always- carry out or dine-in, and the service is fast but great! The prices are incredible for the servings you get! For as long as I have been ordering from Ten Yen I have never... More

My kids, my friend and I went to eat here. When our food was brought to the table, my friend started to eat his Cashew Chicken when he saw a bunch of tiny bugs in his food. When we called the waitress over, she did not look surprised in the least bit. The manager came over to our table and... More
