1:I am editing my original review (below) to… Yen Lin staff and management do not value their customers. Our group frequently dines at Yen Lin, and have been for many years! To be told a dessert cannot be changed or refunded after receiving a £4+ icy block of fruit because the company will be “losing money”…baffling! Any good restaurant knows the basic principle that the customer comes first…Yen Lin have lost their loyal customers over £4 from a £200 bill! “My favourite Indian-Chinese restaurant! Best plum sauce, spring roll, Hakka noodles, pineapple ice-cream and paneer!” (2021)
2:Loved the food, been here in 2019 and it didn’t disappoint and again in Jan 2022, still great food! Be back again in August 2022
3:Heard so many great things about this little niche Chinese restaurant close to Goodmayes Station for a number of years and took my family to visit there. Everything on the menu was halal and they don’t serve pork anymore although they do serve alcohol on the premises. I ordered the Yen Lin Chicken Soup 🍲 as starter and that was absolutely devine. I’ve been told the Hot & Sour Soup is an excellent choice and will definitely think about ordering this for next time. I ordered the Manchurian Chicken with gravy along with the Manchurian Mixed Special Fried Rice which included beef, chicken and prawn which was absolutely delicious and not greasy at all. The Garlic Chilli Chicken was another great choice and can definitely taste the flavours. We also ordered the Manchurian Chicken Chow Mein and that was one of the best Chow Mein I’ve ever had and again not greasy at all. Food is pricey but definitely worth paying extra for the quality. The staff were excellent and were very efficient and brought out all the food barely five mins after ordering and we went just after they opened at 5.30pm! Would definitely most likely to visit and also order takeaway for collection. Wish they delivered takeaway but understand if they don’t need the likes of JustEat or Uber Eats as even when we were dining, the amount of people coming in to collect their takeaway were high!
4:Really good food. Good portions. This will become a regular for me
5:The food was average. The place was over crowded which is a surprise given the food. The service was terrible and the price wasn’t very pocket friendly. We had to try it once as it came highly recommended, however, I can safely say that we have tried majority of the dishes during our visit and won’t be returning given the entire experience.
