Really great food!!! The amount of food was amazing!! A little pricey but worth it. Sweet/sour soup was just perfect! Only thing was my father-in-law was upset there were no fortune cookies, otherwise it would have been a 5.

Large selection and we regrettably only ordered two dishes. As we waited all the dishes coming out looked so good. We are going back and eating in. Duck most likely is in our future.

We have gone here for years. Last month we scheduled a dinner party for about a dozen people and the food, service and overall experience was OUTSTANDING. Very highly recommended!!

Very poor quality food. I believe that I am a fair reviewer and I prefer to praise over pointing out weaknesses, however, this place's food was so bad that we left and ate elsewhere. We ordered three dishes and I tasted all and they were...all bad. Let me describe the quality of chicken this way: Take a chicken thigh or breast and trim all the bad parts off and use only the bad parts in the dish. The flavors were poor too; the Kung Pao tasted like a sour tomato dish; I actually had to spit it out on a napkin. Not sure if there is some redemption in their noodle dishes and that's why people would rate higher but this is the worst Chinese food our family has ever had, and we have eaten Chinese food in many places allover the world. Our lunch check for three dishes with steamed rice was $35 and I couldn't pay fast enough to leave. Would not recommend to and enemy.More

We decided to take out for Mother's Day and ordered from YenYen. They pack everything up perfect and always double check, include sauces and utensils. The walnut shrimp, crispy Peking duck with bun and sauce and crispy gau gee are my favorites but the beef...and broccoli and lemon chicken are great too. We didn't do any noodles but their shrimp fried rice is yummy. We are lucky to have them in our neighborhood.More

Stopped here for a mid week lunch and the place only had a few customers. Ordered the cashew chicken and beef lo mien. The service was good, portions were large and in my opinion the food was average. Price was under $20.

I highly recommend this place. Stopped here for lunch today and got the orange chicken which the man behind the counter recommended and it was delicious. This is a must if your looking for Chinese food, ESPECIALLY ORANGE CHICKEN!!!

This is one of the best quality Chinese restaurants for the windward side. ALWAYS good with excellent service at a good price. Never miss with this one.

Stopped here for lunch after a morning at Kailua Beach. I ordered the Kung Pao Chicken lunch special, which included steamed rice and 2 crispy wontons for $6.75. My daughter ordered the Shrimp Fried Rice, and my wife ordered a chicken dish, which I don't...recall. All 3 dishes were generous portions. The shrimp in the shrimp fried rice was the frozen baby shrimp you'd buy in your local grocery store. Not a big deal, but they weren't seasoned at call and they were barely room temperature. My wife complained that her dish had very little flavor, while my Kung Pao Chicken was fairly good. On the positive side, service was quick and the dining room was clean and comfortable.More

We got takeout for a large family gathering. We ended up throwing most of it away. Although the crispy gau gee was good, the rest of our order was inedible. We had Mongolian Beef, some noodle dish that they recommended when we asked for lo...mein, sweet and sour spare ribs and orange chicken. The food was bland and overcooked. The beef seemed as though it had been boiled for a very long time. The vegetables in the noodle dish were mushy. My mother-in-law called to complain about the horrible food. They refused to remake any if it. Instead they offered a discount off a future order, which is useless because we'll never order food from there again.More
