Yip's is by far, hands-down, bar none, the BEST Chinese restaurant in the US. I have been eating here consistently for over ten years and I would not hesitate for one moment to pit it against any Chinese place in NYC, Chicago, LA, etc. "Fresh" is an understatement. All dishes come out piping hot. Granted, if the buffet is not during busy hours, some of the dishes might be a little stale or old. However, all you have to do is ask Sam (the owner) if she will freshen it up and her husband the cook will make a new batch immediately.
Don't be fooled by appearances, as so many people in Anderson are by the exterior of this business. Sam reinvests all of her profits in keeping prices low and providing top quality food. Therefore, she hasn't really spent much on the building. I think it gives the place "charm" but others are turned away by it. It's not terrible, but obviously needs some major repairs.
You also will not find a friendlier atmosphere. Sam treats all of her customers wonderfully, and if you start showing up on a regular basis, you will be treated like family. She will remember your name and always what you like to drink.
One more thing, she keeps a garden in the back with all kinds of vegetables and uses them in her dishes when they are in season. How can you not love that!
