Had a craving for Chinese food so asked friends on Facebook for ideas. This win out. We just don't great Chinese food restaurants in Salem. Seated promptly at 11:45 on a Friday, water was delivered with something black floating in my water glass. Took about 10 minutes to get order placed. Food was out in less than five minutes. Hot...

Fast and great combo plates at lunch. A favorite stop on a busy work week. Most combos are $7 -$8 range. Staff is great too. Very clean establishment, Recommended to me by comforter worker.

The very best Chinese restaurant we have ever eaten at, and we have enjoyed their great food and cuisine for approximately 40 years. Also Rosetta is the best server, Carl is the best chef and Jenny is the best hostess. We go back as often as we can, when we are in Salem, Oregon.

I have eaten here since they opened in the early 70's. Best Chinese food for the money in Salem, or as far as I am concerned.

The good - large portions, friendly staff. The bad - do not expect authentic Chinese food. I should have known that the food was not up to par since there were no Asian customers when we walked in. However, after being on the road for 10 hours, I wanted something more substantial.

The food was very good. Portions were generous. Hostess sat us promptly and the waitress was attentive. This restaurant is obviously a local favorite as it was very busy and several other Chinese restaurants we passed were not busy at all.

We attended a long graduation at the fairgrounds and were very hungry! This was the first place we came to so we thought we would take a chance. And we're glad we did! The place was clean, the service was fast and friendly, and the food was very good and plentiful. We ordered family style and there was more than... More

Lum Yuen has always been a favorite spot when we are doing the "Where do you want to go?" wars! We usually just do carry out. We order one combination and an appetizer and always have plenty left over. It is consistent and dependable. It is yummy, too!

This is our most favorite Chinese restaurant in Salem. We have taken three Cambodian guests to Lum Yuen's and they loved it too!

This experience was just terrible. Period. The only thing Chinese about this place was the name. Terrible taste. Both children COULD NOT EVEN EAT THEIR FOOD! They ordered wonton soup and OMG, it was like a salt lick! Just gross. I ordered our waitresses "favorite dish" and oh my, I took one bite and that was it! Terrible, terrible, terrible!!... More
