Food rubbery and tasteless. Good service but do not go here to eat if you want tasty food! Overall very disappointed.

The food is always great in here. I usually visit if I am going to a concert at the SSE Hydro, so the restaurant is always busy but the staff do a great job to serve this good food very efficiently. I would even recommend this restaurant if it was away from the SSE Hydro. I have been around 3/4... More

Booked here for a pre concert meal on Friday 7th April. Got the feeling they wanted you in and out as quick as possible. The waitress who served us was not very chatty and rather sour faced. Food was nothing to rave about and was never offered a second drink!! When we were leaving a young girl standing at the... More

This was my second visit to Yen since being gluten free and on both visits I have been extremely pleasantly surprised at the selection available for gluten free and the knowledge of the staff. I find Chinese restaurants to be variable in what is available for gluten free, but Yen even provides gluten free battered sweet and sour and crispy... More

As a change from pre theatre Italian restaurants we went to the Yen as we were going to a show at the Hydro. The starters were OK but three out of the four main courses were served cold. These were duly sent back and returned eventually hot as they should have been in the first place. However the delay put... More

Would highly recommend Yen Oriental, had a lovely meal here on Thursday night before heading to The Hydro. The restaurant is part of the Rotanda and is right next door to the Hydro and SECC. Excellent value for money and service was quick and attentive. Will be back.

Has a good value lunch option up until 1500. Unforturnately we were just too late. Prices seemed reasonable but portion sizes were very small so relatively expensive in comparison to other oriental restaurants.

Great dinner at Yen after visiting Science Museum. Quick service, polite staff, and the food was amazing. We've shared a starter platter with great choice, then crispy duck with pancakes- new experience for us and loved it! Singapore noodles and Sezuan vegetables as side were great too. Enjoyed with our kids very much. Would recommend.
