“True Oriental Experience”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

The Ten Yen is a staple in the Westland area, it is an older building inside and out: however, once you taste the food, it is incredible! Best sweet and sour around for miles. The food is always cooked on the premises, served hot, and with great service. The restaurant has both silverware or chop sticks, and the chinese tea is flavorful and served hot! It is one of Westland's best kept secrets. Don't be surprised if it is not crowded, most of the time customers order out, and in VERY large quantities. By the way, serving portions inside the restaurant are always more than adequate, and you will have plenty for another day! Great restaurant.

“Giant portions.”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Okay, sure. This place is old and dusty. The carpet is worn. The decor hasn't been updated much since the LBJ administration. And never mind that "Yen" isn't even a Chinese unit of currency. This place has CHARACTER and there's something to be said for longevity. Scores of loyal customers have kept this place open for decades to enjoy heaping portions of Almond Boneless Chicken, Chop Suey, and other favorites served up plentifully and cheerfully amid an atmosphere that drips with faux-oriental ambience. And speaking of dripping: Make no mistake, this is strictly deep-fried American-style "Chinese Food." But man, it's tasty. And those portions have every Chinese restaurant in town beaten in terms of size and value for the money. Seriously, folks, there's a LOT of food for what you pay. Ignore the run-down appearance of the place, the lack of culinary authenticity, and the proprietor's apparent insistence on storing cleaning supplies in full view of the lobby. This is the spot to be if you have a "yen" for gorging yourself on American Chinese food.

“Great Food - Great Service”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

My husband and I went for the first time in early December. It was so good that we decided to take the family there for our Christmas Day dinner! We have been back numerous times and we absolutely love everything about it. The food is great and they give so much, you have enough for another meal to take home! The service was wonderful. Our favorite waiter there is William. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves Chinese food.

“THE BEST Egg Rolls”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

Although it has been a couple years since I've been home to Westland, I can tell you Ten Yen has the best egg rolls I've had and their plum sauce fantastic too. I love the food and get cravings regularly. Just sad because I can't staisfy those cravings because I livve in Texas and have for the last 23 years.
