Really nice neighborhood Chinese restaurant in Lakeview. Perfect for a low-key dinner. Casual atmosphere. Very friendly service and the food is very good. Very good value.

We arrived about 4:15 and were going to meet a few friends for dinner. The hours posted on the window stated open at 2:00pm - but they were not open. Another customer was standing in front of the restaurant with her granddaughter who called the number listed on the window. No one answered. We decided to go sit inside the... More

I am 56 and cannot remeber a place where a great hot and sour soup cost less than $4.00 and the most expensive plate is $14.95. Ok! You have to bring your wine. Trader Joe' s is a block away. Add between $5.00 and $12.00 for a bottle of wine. The vegetables are fresh; the service is excellent; and then... More

Just ordered delivery and had a very bad experience with this place. First off they said it would be 20 minutes to get my food and it took more than an hour to get here. Then I noticed that my food wasn't what I had wanted so I looked at the receipt to see that I was charged for something... More

Our group - four of us - walked into Yens' at 845PM and were immediately told that they were closing at 10PM. Um, okay. There were only two other folks there waiting for takeout and later another couple arrived with the same information given out. So the stage was set for trepidation. We were hungry and all of us have... More

Yen's offers the usual huge assortment of standard Chinese fare. Unlike some places, at Yen's the food is exceptionally well prepared with fresh ingredients (no canned mushrooms here). Food is well seasoned, neither salty nor greasy. Food arrived exactly 30 minutes after phone order and was steaming hot upon delivery. Good value for money. This is now our "go to"... More

My husband, son and I ate at Yen's on a Sunday night. It is a little restaurant in Lincoln Park with nice decor. The prices were very moderate with most dinners ranging from $10-$15. My son had spicy garlic beef which he complained wasn't spicy enough, but he likes his Asian food really hot. My husband didn't care for what... More

We go to the Landmark Century Cinema just south of Yen's all the time and never have had a place to go afterwards. Now we do! It will be a regular stop now.

I've been loyally coming here for over 10 years now. To be honest, I rarely stray from my favorite dish - Yen's Garlic Beef. It is quite amazing when coupled with the vegetable egg rolls. While over the years some staff members have slightly changed, everyone remains very nice and accommodating. Even when they are busy and packed, the food... More
