The last time I was in there, I ordered shrimp with my meal. I was told that I would be charged extra for the shrimp. When my meal arrived, there was four little dinky shrimp about one bite each. I haven't been back since. In the past, the food as always been good.

This is our go to restaurant for an Asian style food. For those expecting authentic "Chinese" cuisine, this is not the place for you. This is the traditional AMERICAN CHINESE restaurant that is just like the Chinese American restaurants of the 1940s and 1950s. The food is usually very well prepared and hot. The menus has the combos, the Suey and Chow Mein and great deep fried shimp.

If you're going here for fancy, or "California style," Chinese, you'll be disappointed.

Yen's food is cheap and tasty. That's all you gotta know.

You should not order the Mongolian Beef, it's all MINE. You can't have any. Order something else.

The prices on the menu are not current at all! I ordered the number 7 over the phone to learn it was $2 more when I got to the restaurant for pickup. I won't be going there again for awhile even though the food is delicious. I just can't help, but think of how many bean burritos I could have gotten at Taco Bell.

Our family loves Yen's. We order the combination Dinner A for 3 and can easily feed 5 people. We especially love the Egg Flower soup, the 10 ingredient LO Mein, The fried rice, BBQ pork, and more.

If you are over 55 they have a great senior menu for $6Th.50? You get 2 choices w/soup. We have the egg fu young and s/s chicken. Not only is delicious but we both have enough to take home for another meal. Also if you use the to-go menu and it shows soup included, be sure to take your own container--you get lots. we have been going there since it opened as yan's and only been disappointed 2 times--they took care of the problem right away. WE love the staff and enjoy going there a lot

Honestly, since we moved here from California last year, I have yet to find any palatable, "REAL" Chinese food. If there is such a place in Oregon, please shout it out - tried this place based on reviews, but was sorely disappointed. The chow mein was bland, the noodles "tough," and there were only about 5 small pieces of chicken in the whole thing. Apparently you have to go to Chinatown to get "real" Chinese ... I don't get it, when the people who are cooking the food here in Tigard are obviously "real" Chinese people!!! Please respond if anyone has any suggestions as to where to go ... and please don't say "Wu's" because I did that once and ended up spending $65 on takeout for 3 people, and had to throw out the leftovers because no one in my house (including my 2-year-old) would eat it ...

I agree with CF - this is not the best Chinese food I've ever had. But if you like hole-in-the-wall places with a decent price and huge servings, this is a great pick. I do not think the food is bad at all. My boyfriend and I have been eating at Yen's for over 5 years now and have consistent results every time. We almost always get the same combo, and in all these years have never experienced a change in recipe or service.

Not only was the food the absolute worst chinese food that I have ever eaten, the tea was incredibly weak and the service was extremely poor. I realized that I would never eat there again, after I took 2 bites of my hot and sour soup. Unfortunately, I got another chance to taste it as I was driving towards home on Highway 99W and had to throw open the truck door to vomit uncontrollably.

If you are going here expecting top notch food for a average of about $6.00 Per person for a combo.... Then you are at the wrong place. Like everything else you get what you pay for. It is not the best I have ever had but the price and the service its not too shabby. They have a great lunch combo its fast, fresh and affordable. I do not go in here expecting high quality food. However it is very consistent and better than most. I will keep going back because of this.

I love their coconut chicken, honey walnut shrimp and Every time I go there I always order their honey walnut shrimp. Plus their waiters service is great, they always serve food with a smile.

yen's Chinese Restaurant is good. this is our favorite place to have dinner. My family has been going to yen's ---for more than 5years .the kung pao chicken and fried shrimp is very good .

review_stars 10/17/2011 - Chimmi Kata
Their fried rice is awful. I mean it.

The Kung pao is not edible.

The service was absolutely terrible.

The bathroom was the only thing authentic Chinese, And I honestly mean this in the worst way.

Also, paid extra for something and did not receive.

Yen's is a favorite restaurant of ours. The food is just like I remembered growing up. I love the fried shrimp and the fried rice. Great Chinese food, great staff.

review_stars 12/27/2010 - Frank
It gets 1 star only because 0 isn't an option. This is easily the worst Chinese food I have eaten in my life. I don't know how others can rave about this place, makes me wonder if they've actually eaten decently prepared C food before.

The fried shrimp was well prepared. The hot/sour soup was decent. The beef and broccoli was just barely okay, although there wasn't much beef and the broccoli was undercooked.

The fried rice was way over cooked to the point of not being edible. The hot/sour chicken was a platter of deep fried dough covered balls with some sauce poured over the middle of the pile - not even covering all pieces of chicken, much less actually cooking the chicken in the sauce. The kung pao chicken was an undecipherable pile of chicken, nuts and vegetables (my wife thought they mistakenly gave us cashew chicken). The pan fried noodles came out as a heaping plate of plane, sticky spaghetti looking noodles - very unappealing and bland.

The general vibe of this place is that they make up for lack of quality with sheer quantity. If you want to feed a small family with one side dish and a single combo plate and don't care what the food tastes like, this is the place for you.

This is our favorite place to have dinner. Yen's Egg Flower soup has become my "comfort food" - in fact, I have a bad cold today, and hubby is stopping there after work for me! We've NEVER had a bad experience at Yen's. If you haven't tried it, you're REALLY missing out!

Love it

My family has been going to Yen's for more than 20 years. They are truly a family business and have every-time we go there we feel that we are part of their family. The food is outstanding. They have food they haven't changed on their menus, and they bring in new items for those of us that like variety. But from week to week we always find our family and friends like going back.

Finally found a good chinese restaurant in the close in SW neighborhood. We ate there last week and were impressed with the "fresh" "hot" food we ordered. Cooked just right not over cooked. Shrimp were perfect. Very good.

The won ton soup is the best we've ever had and we have gone there for years to get it. Everything else is SUPER greasy and we usually toss it right off the bat. Somehow we keep trying though as the soup is so good!

review_stars 05/14/2009 - Warren
If you like Mandarin or Generals chicken, they have some of the best. The fried rice is top quality. You get allot for your money. I drive from Vancouver WA, about 45 min each way at least once a month and sometimes more than once a week. I have been returning now since 2001.
