Really good Chinese food. I am a Hot & Sour Soup snob and theirs is very good! I had their chopped pork and pepper with soft buns for lunch that was delicious. I am definitely a fan of Yen's!

This is a small restaurant tucked away in the back of the Broadland shopping center. The owners are from Taiwan, and they have a menu that have many of the traditional Taiwanese dishes (you have to ask for it, however). I grew up in Taiwan and have eaten countless Taiwanese restaurants. Though this is not the very best Taiwanese restaurant... More

I'll give you this the Delivery Guy was so nice, so friendly! The online ordering is wonderful! We ordered for delivery Hot 'n' Sour Soup, Won Ton Soup, Mongolian Beef, Hunan Chicken and Pan Fried Noodles with Vegetables. Generally, the food was swimming in sauce, the vegetables were quite overcooked. Overall, the food was fairly bland. The soups' ingredients were... More

This is our 2nd time ordering delivery from Yen's. The first time, the food was pretty good. The chicken was white meat with no gristle or fat. So we decided to order delivery again a few nights ago. My moo goo gai pan was fine, although the sauce was literally tasteless. It was just so incredibly blah. We also ordered... More

Very small restaurant with wonderful service and delicious food. The restaurant was full when we arrived (not kidding, very small), so we sat at the bar and had a wonderful time talking to the people at the bar/front desk. The wonton soup was original tasting with wontons made with the thinnest of shells and tasty filling. We had Beijing Style... More

We've been junk-food-ing for quite some time. Finding Yan's cafe is a blessing. Food was awesome. We had the cashew chicken and water spinach beef. One of the owner was very friendly and welcoming. Makes dining there more enjoyable. Definitely will recommend and return to try other food.

This is a small, think really small, cafe in a mall near the toll road in Ashburn. In spite of the small size it manages to support a full bar and some of the friendliest and most attentive servers you'll find anywhere. But, the reason most people go to a restaurant is for the food, not the help. In that... More

We've had hit or miss experiences here, but I think that's because of the language barrier when trying to figure out what certain dishes are made of. The things we love are the spicy green beans and the special meatball dish (the name escapes me), they are both amazing! We will keep trying the menu to find new favorites. The... More

This is my regular go to place for Chinese food. Food is authentic and quality here is great. Very low key and affordable. You can't go wrong with any dishes there. My favorite: Taiwanese style fried chicken.
