The food is great, nice and quick, and our kids (2&5) love it. They look after us well. Their Crispy Chicken is awesome!

I have been eating at Yen Yen Chinese Restaurant once a month for about a year now, and I am still satisfied. I normally like to order the Hot & Sour Soup (which is a little different every time I order), Shrimp canton, Asparagus and beef, and their cake noodles (which is great). I would much rather do take-out than dine in because it gets a little crowded after 6pm. So, if you are planning on having dinner at Yen Yen, try going between 5:30 and 6pm and be ready to order. If you are going for more flavor, than I would suggest that you try foods that have black bean sauce (which can be a little salty for some), and also get noodle dishes with veggies and meat as I feel that these dishes turn out to be the most flavorful. The Hot & Sour soup is amazing, however, sometimes it has a lot of heat so stay clear if you can't handle spices like chili peppers. Like I said, I usually do take out, but it is only because I live a minute away from the restaurant, but it is so worth it if you are planning on having a picnic at the park or if you are taking food to a potluck.

How lucky we are to dine in this little Chinese restaurant in Enchanted Lake, Kailua and found out the Chef is from Hong Kong and has more than 45-45 year of experiences. The restaurant is offering real Cantonese Hong Kong Style Chinese food. Highly recommended. Price is so good too.

This place has some of the best fried rice on the island (order the house special). All the other stuff is pretty good too. Always got to have some char-siu and some spicy chicken. They do have a large menu to choose from, enough to please everybody. If you’re there at lunch time they do have some specials, the oyster sauce chicken over cake noodles rocks! Quick service too, you never have to wait long.

Located in the Enchanted Lakes Shopping Center off Keolu Drive, this is a great air conditioned place to have a filling meal for a low price. It is open all afternoon. The lunch special advertised on the front window is delicious and a bargain. The Chinese Chicken Salad is fresh and huge - highly recommended. I like the walnut shrimp and the abalone soup. The service is good. They do a great take-out business. The atmosphere is so-so, brightly lit with some live orchids but the walls are pasted with all the specials and there may be Christmas decorations still up. You can't beat the price or the quantity and the quality is surprisingly good.
