We were staying at a local hotel and wanted to eat in the room. We stopped to get a menu and took it to the room. I initially found the prices to be expensive in comparison to our New Jersey prices but once I saw the dish sizes I understood. We actually had to divide the meal in 2 because... More

I love coming here for the lunch buffet. It's not the biggest one out there but the selection is always delicious. The price isn't bad at all and it's great for a date with your loved one. Or if you want to bring the whole family. They also make a really good scorpion bowl (just in case you were wondering)

We had a Great waitress. The food was good. Fair prices. Had the special combo meals and couldn't finish it all. We enjoyed the scorpion bowl. There were 10 of us and we all enjoyed our meal.

The buffet is small and not kept filled, went there at 12:30 pm and there was 5 empty dishes, there is very few choices, so 5 missing item's doesn't make it a good deal. The kept saying they were going to refill, but on a lunch break how long are you supposed to wait.

It's been many years since I've been to Yen Yen. Today I had the luncheon buffet, which was approx.$9. It's not the biggest buffet but there was certainly enough choices for me. Many of the dishes were chicken. The egg rolls were delicious. There was also a small salad bar. The service was very good. I went in towards the... More

Some things never change, thank God. Yen Yen for 30 years has continued to satisfy. Don't be fooled by the location in a strip mall.

Stopped in with a friend for a lunch buffet. The buffet doesn't have all that much to choose from, but each item was quite well cooked and tasty! The buffet starts with a nice hot soup of choice (I got the hot and sour) and a pot of tea if you like. We both enjoyed the buffet very much and... More

I enjoy eating at the Yen Yen with my family. The food is well prepared. The atmosphere is comfortable allowing family to talk, laugh, and eat a good meal. The staff does their best to ensure your meal time is perfect.
