It's been many years since I've been to Yen Yen. Today I had the luncheon buffet, which was approx.$9. It's not the biggest buffet but there was certainly enough choices for me. Many of the dishes were chicken. The egg rolls were delicious. There was also a small salad bar. The service was very good. I went in towards the... More

Some things never change, thank God. Yen Yen for 30 years has continued to satisfy. Don't be fooled by the location in a strip mall.

Stopped in with a friend for a lunch buffet. The buffet doesn't have all that much to choose from, but each item was quite well cooked and tasty! The buffet starts with a nice hot soup of choice (I got the hot and sour) and a pot of tea if you like. We both enjoyed the buffet very much and... More

I enjoy eating at the Yen Yen with my family. The food is well prepared. The atmosphere is comfortable allowing family to talk, laugh, and eat a good meal. The staff does their best to ensure your meal time is perfect.

Years ago the Yen Ye3n had a decent sized buffet with decent food. (not the quality of Boston etc. but still OK) I went for the $9.25 buffet last week. Tiny offering of variety and just a waste of money. I had 4 different chicken dishes. All were way over cooked, hard and dry chicken. I had a few other... More

We visited here fro dinner. The restaurant itself was nice. Clean, well decorated, family friendly. The food costs were a few dollars more per meal then I would expect for a Chinese restaurant and the flavor of the Chinese food was unique. Not unique in a bad way but it not the flavor I expect from typical American Chinese food.... More

For a little town we have a surprising amount of Chinese restaurant's. This is the one we always order from, fair prices, good food and great portions. That's it, simple and straight forward. They also have a buffet in the afternoon as well.
