Yen's - basic chinese formula done exceptionally well.
I must say i really appreciate Yen's. It's not inventive, pioneering cuisine by any means. But it is chinese food done exceedingly well. The flavors are balanced, and the kitchen obviously takes great pride in what they do. Today there is so, so much bad chinese food out there, that it is truly refreshing to find a place like Yen's which does what it does great! This is an excellent restaurant for basic chinese food- it is WAY BETTER THAN CHEN'S on clark street.
Very good chinese food. The waiter was very friendly and they totally were willing to work with me when I wanted to change some things about my order! The prices are great as well. My boyfriend and I usually pay around $20 for both of us. In this area that is a bargain
Best Shrimp & Chicken Fried Rice.
Let me just say that I am not a fan of Chinese Food but my husband loves it. He took me to Yen's on one of our first dates, over 13 years ago and I love this place. We have been coming to Yen's for a very long time and the carry out is always as good as when you are dinning in. The Foods is excellant, the shrimp rolls are to die for and the food is never greasy. I have turned many people out to this place and they just keep coming back. Charlie and the rest of the staff are great. Highly Recommended.
Great food, great prices, great service. I have ordered Yen's for delivery several times and have been impressed on all accounts. The food is delicious, and having just recently moved from New York City (where good Chinese is plentiful), I have to say that Yen's is one of the best. The prices are also very reasonable and the service is quick and friendly. I have not yet dined in the restaurant, but every time I walk by it seems inviting. Try the orange chicken - delicious!
Great Chinese food!!.
This may be one of the best Chinese restaurants in Chicago. A combination of delicious sauces, quality meat/seafood and fresh vegetables. The restaurant itself is very clean and pleasant. I would definitely recommend dining there with the attentive service. I will not eat Chinese food anywhere else!
Its just ok.
I went here recently and had the orange chicken, it was alright and all, but there was a big piece of bone that I nearly choked on. The service was so-so, after seeing other reviews, perhaps they were having an off night.
BEST CHINESE EVER!!!.
We order from Yen's about once a week, it is by far the best Chinese food we've had and that includes Chinatown. They put lots of veggies in their dishes and everything is really fresh and perfectly spiced.
Excellent Chinese food.
The Chinese food here is very good---especially enjoyed the sesame beef and spicy pork. Service is also very attentive but allow a lot of time as they can get slow when it gets busy. If you're in Lakeview, the best choice for Chinese cuisine. Visited again in August 2007 and everything was as great as previous visits.
