They were very friendly on arrival and our entrees came out pretty promptly. When it came to mains, my friend... More

Wanting to just have an easy night out, we booked into Yen's, having small number of reviews we didn't know what to expect. We were greeted well, but once we sat down we received lack lustre service and poor drink service, our gut feeling was "here we go, this will be interesting'. We ordered and our Entrees came out, both... More

We have been going to Yens regularly for more than 15 years. It is often our choice of venues for family birthday dinners as we are always warmly welcomed by David and his staff. (It was my choice for my 60th birthday for 55 people) David will always make sure everybody is satisfied and is appreciative of our visit. Food... More

We found it to be a very friendly atmosphere,the staff are always very friendly and the owner comes around to make sure that everything is to your liking and it is not to much trouble if you want something that it not on the menu. We would recommend this to everyone

I, and a group of friends visited for dinner and we were placed on a dais to the left of the entrance. Each time the door opened a cold breeze came with it. As there was only one other table taken in the restaurant couldn't understand why we had to be near the door. Staff were friendly and obliging. Food... More

On a few occasions I have recently had take away from Yen's in Croydon. The food is always freshly cooked and delicious. This is not a fancy restaurant, but is rather the typical local neighbourhood Chinese restaurant. The service is friendly and quick and the food is reasonably priced.

we revisited yens and found since our last visit prices had increased. The quantity of food had decreased. It was very disappointing We have enjoyed this venue but we cannot justify going back. A meal for 2 with 2 entrees, 1 main and l small rice was over $60. It is cheaper to go to local pubs
