Yen's is a small and unassuming restaurant in the back of a strip mall. But don't let that discourage you. The best are usually the least obvious. The food here is really tasty, and if you're familiar with the Taiwanese flavor of Chinese food, you'll appreciate the authentic flavors and dishes. Make sure you try the Yen's Special fried chicken - little bite size tasty morsels of chicken. Other great dishes to try: blistered green beans with pork, salt and pepper pork chops or fish. So many tasty dishes here. This is one the best Chinese food places in the area if you're looking for real Chinese food.

This was such a jewel of a place, I used like taking my friends out there for a quiet dinner. But recently it become to busy, the food quality has degraded and the service has been far from what I expect of them. I hope they improve soon for the loss will be ours.

I live in the area and Yens cafe is my go to comfort food - atleast once a week. The food is always consistently tasty, very clean and very good service. Portion sizes are decent the the mango-passion tea is the best. Would highly recommend

Unlike the same old Chinese take-out menu, Yen's has an extensive menu that you won't typically see elsewhere. Because it's Taiwanese, the flavoring is a bit lighter, not heavily spicy and has a good seafood variety. The hot and sour soup is one of the best you will have anywhere as well as the quality of the rice they use is fantastic. The soup is spicy and robust with tofu, pork, bamboo shoots, egg, wood ear mushrooms, green onions and it's terrific. I like the Macadamia Shrimp, which is a very lighly sauteed shrimp, onions, bell peppers, carrots and macadamia nuts that tastes very good. One of my favorites here is the Hot and Sour Soup noodle, which is a mega bowl of my favorite soup with noodles!! Amazing.
The other recommendations include Taiwan cabbage with pork, Singapore noodles, braised fish in sauce, crispy whole fish with ginger and scallions. It is a family run place, only seats around 20 I think so there may be a wait. The wait is worth it.
They also offer a variety of teas steeped in a wonderful tea set on a votive to keep it warm. It will keep your whole family filled the entire meal. They also have smoothies and bubble teas so after dinner, there's some goodness there too.
