“This is not a restaurant!”
Review of Yam Kee - CLOSED

Just want to point out, this is not a restaurant, it's a fast food chain and the concept is about precoocked, stored under heating bulps, walk away with snack box! Don't expect anything else!

We were looking for an inexpensive meal in Kristiansand and discovered Yam Kee while visiting the shopping mall Sandens. The idea seems to be an easy meal on the go as you shop or in between. Prices around 50-60 NOK. Great idea.

The place is clean, the ladies behind the counter were nice and knowledgeable. You may sit down for a small additional fee. The tables were clean and welcoming.

You can choose between some "classic" Asian sauces such as tikka marsala, sweet & sour, thai peanut sauce etc. There is also a small selection of rice or noodles with or without additional flavors. Unfortunately both my company and I chose the fried version of noodles. Together with the noodles hoi sin sauce with beef and black bean sauce with chicken.

The black bean sauce was not that bad, but quite sweet. Together with the fried noodles it felt a bit sickening which is why I would not recommend anything but plain rice or noodles together with this dish. My company had even more problems since the hoi sin sauce was downright unbalanced and sickening sweet.

Since I think this is a chain store the sauces may not be prepared locally. If they are, I would advice the chef to taste the food before serving. It can make the difference between success and failure.
