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

Been there a number of times in groups and as a couple. Food always great in flavour and portions. From the outside you would not realise it is quite spacious inside. Very relaxing and standard seating and tables. Don't let that distract from the food. Can sometimes get a little warm inside but I guess that's why they need to... More

We were greeted by a young lady who was very polite and relaxed, straight away we felt comfortable. The choice on menu provided many dishes and very reasonably priced. Serving sizes were generous. Staff very friendly and constantly checking everything was ok, drinks etc, the chef/owner even came out to see how we were. He even gave us a pot... More
