We had been looking for a good Chinese restaurant nearby, and ordered takeout from Yin Yin. Food was really good, had sweet and sour pork, General Tso's chicken, and beef and broccoli combos with fried rice and egg rolls. Order of wonton soup also was good. Great food at a great price. We'll definitely come back here.

First time ordering from this place. It was lunch time and I was the only person in the store. The food was quite good and prices fair.

If you are looking for great chinese take out food this is the place. The meals are huge and very reasonably priced. They make each meal to order and will spice it to taste. I have eaten here for years and though I try other chinese from time to time this really is the best around. I usually end up... More

Had to try them at least once. I go to China Town a lot, so...Came across as a mom and pop shop. Outstanding egg rolls. Food is better than average and made from scratch. You do have the opportunity to watch them make your meal.
