This type of review is so hard to write. The food from here was great; the prices seemed really high. At first I thought it was because I went in to order off of the menu for take-out. You know how sometimes you order fast because you are just sitting in the front? I thought I had possibly done this... More

Yen Yen is a local secret that deserves a broader footprint within the unique eateries in/around Peterborough, NH. The food is typical Chinese fare, but cooked to perfection. Take out is very popular with the locals, as is the after work pub environment where a colorful group of blue collar workers take up residency most late afternoons. A "Cheers" type... More

So I wanted some general tso/gau chicken . This place actually serves it correctly with several pieces of broccoli on the side. The hot and sour soup was ok and the crab Rangoon's were alright.

I was hesitant to try yen yen because it is a place that seems to have a reputation for being a grimy, drunk hangout. I knew some people who ordered from here pretty regularly, so I figured I'd try some pretty simple food items--fried rice, wonton soup and crab rangoons. The crab rangoons were ok, have had better elsewhere. The... More

I went with my family to this place because I was told the food was good. WELL it wasn't. We ordered crab Rangoon for the table which was deep fried cream cheese. The Peking ravioli was ok but the tea tasted weird I had the hot and sour soup and sweet and sour pork. I barely had any of that... More

I was hesitant to visit Yen Yen, but my favorite restaurant closed and its owner Bruce went to join his brother at Yen Yen. I had great service, delicious food, and pleasant atmosphere. I found it very pleasant and enjoyable. I hope others who did not to try it again. Addition of Bruce has made a huge difference and I... More

I've been coming here for perhaps 20 years. In the early days the food was fresh and sparkling, one of the nicer Chinese restaurants I have been to. Unfortunately, the last 7 or 8 years the place has gone downhill quite a ways. Most of the entrees are The only reason I still come is that they have egg foo... More

Haven't had a bad meal here but the, apparently one of one, waiter hardly ever speaks and is most unfriendly. He rarely speaks or smiles and behaves like he wants to find another job. One of these reviews says '. . .we were greeted with ice water . . ' We are usually greeted with an ice waiter. brookfieldresearch@gmail.com

We always seem to do take out, but inside seems nice friendly staff, hot food, favorite won-ton soup in the area.

Ate dinner here since 3 of the oriental restaurants listed for this area on our GPS had closed. Guess this is not an area for Asian food. Anyway, we found the restaurant to be average, but acceptable. We were greeted with ice water, and a pot of tea. Good start. The menus had seen better days. I think i would... More
