Stopped here for a mid week lunch and the place only had a few customers. Ordered the cashew chicken and beef lo mien. The service was good, portions were large and in my opinion the food was average. Price was under $20.

I highly recommend this place. Stopped here for lunch today and got the orange chicken which the man behind the counter recommended and it was delicious. This is a must if your looking for Chinese food, ESPECIALLY ORANGE CHICKEN!!!

This is one of the best quality Chinese restaurants for the windward side. ALWAYS good with excellent service at a good price. Never miss with this one.

Stopped here for lunch after a morning at Kailua Beach. I ordered the Kung Pao Chicken lunch special, which included steamed rice and 2 crispy wontons for $6.75. My daughter ordered the Shrimp Fried Rice, and my wife ordered a chicken dish, which I don't recall. All 3 dishes were generous portions. The shrimp in the shrimp fried rice was... More

We got takeout for a large family gathering. We ended up throwing most of it away. Although the crispy gau gee was good, the rest of our order was inedible. We had Mongolian Beef, some noodle dish that they recommended when we asked for lo mein, sweet and sour spare ribs and orange chicken. The food was bland and overcooked.... More

Nearly empty just past lunch; should have been a clue. Brusk waitress: should have been a clue. Tasteless chicken vegetables; should have been a clue. Industrial tasting sweet sour pork; should have been a clue. Tainted Old Greasy Egg Rolls: case solved.

Well, I cannot comprehend how this restaurant warrants "best Chinese in Kailua". How bad are the others?! :-/ We decided on Chinese take-out when hurricane Ana put the cabosh on our anniversary plans in Waikiki. But, hey! we're flexible and up for an impromptu take-out/DVD evening (it has been 22 years after all). The first thing that struck me is... More

Nice local Chinese restaurant, you can find it in the Enchanted Lake (not lakes) shopping center. We enjoy the friendly atmosphere, great prices, large menu, good portions and you can eat in or order take out. Not a five star restaurant but we are very happy to recommend our favorite Chinese restaurant for their great quality, quantity, price and friendly... More

The food is great, nice and quick, and our kids (2&5) love it. They look after us well. Their Crispy Chicken is awesome!

I have been eating at Yen Yen Chinese Restaurant once a month for about a year now, and I am still satisfied. I normally like to order the Hot & Sour Soup (which is a little different every time I order), Shrimp canton, Asparagus and beef, and their cake noodles (which is great). I would much rather do take-out than... More
