I have traveled to Saigon several times in the last 5 years and Yen Restaurant has the best Pho in town. Be sure to get the Satay version with spices and peanuts. Ask the owner what is good on the menu and he will suggest dishes that match your taste. Always a good experience.

First the negative - it's in a could be scary part of Mobile - bars on most of the windows, some shady looking people walking the streets, but nothing to be too scared of.... Service is sometimes slow - it's often one or two servers for the entire restaurant - when they aren't full it's no big deal, when they... More

If you are looking for authentic Vietnamese food, this is the place. From the outside it is just a well groomed cinder block building. But inside it is charming place run by a gentleman who will go out of his way. Everything is prepared fresh with the most wonderful sauces. The wontons melt in your mouth. Really delicious

I had stopped going to Yen when it was under the previous owners due to the slow service and the length of time it took to get our food at lunch. After hearing that there's new owners, I decided to stop in and check out their menu. Pho Yen has quite an extensive selection of dishes. The one that caught... More

The restaurant got new ownership by end of 2014. They have lots of menu selections unlike what it used to be with older ownership. We went several times after new ownership, and haven't gotten to try everything yet. Everything was good from rice dish, to pho, to spring rolls so far. My favorite was the satay pho soup noodles. Really... More

Yen's is a great little restaurant that serves fresh food made to your order. My favorite is the crepe and their yogurt is wonderful.

We arrived at Yen about 3pm, between lunch and dinner, and were the only guests. Our server was very helpful and nice. I had a curry dish and my husband had noodle soup and both were extremely good. We enjoyed our meal, but the restaurant was located in a neighborhood that made me uneasy.

My wife read that this was one of the favorite restaurants of the chef of True Kitchen in Mobile so we tried it. The atmosphere is nothing special, but the dishes are quite tasty. I ordered a shrimp dish and it was very large and good. My son and his girlfriend are vegatarian so they ordered dishes without meat and... More
