Ordered a take away meal (to be eaten at home). Sadly it was not up to expectations and all the dishes had the same flavour - a shame for they have previously been rather good. Prices have gone up and so value for money was very poor. Would I go again, I don't think at those prices. If someone was... More

Not the same. I was disappointed by the takeaway. When I call to complain. The person on the phone was very rude.

This popular restaurant has been there a long time but I re-visited it only recently after a good 3 year gap. We were a party of 6 and found it an excellent experience overall. Service was quick and friendly with a good selection of drinks. Starters pricey but we opted for the veg and chicken spring rolls which were oily... More

Ordered a takeaway after endless recommendations and the food was totally spot on! Everything full of delicious flavours and the vegetarian options were great! Collection time was only 30 minutes even on a busy New Years weekend which was perfect for all the hungry gang.

Me and my partner regularly dine here as the staff are friendly and the food is always pleasant. It's a reasonably priced place and you definitely will not be disappointed for for what you pay. It's the affordable once a week Chinese rather than a special night Out Chinese!

Yen Lin is an Indo Chinese restaurant. Food is excellent. From ordering it takes 10 to 20 minutes to arrive.9/10 Staff are very polite, and attentive and friendly.9/10 Restaurant Decor is basic.5/10 I think Decor is the only thing which needs improving. Well worth a visit to this restaurant for a meal with Friends or Family. Close to Goodmayes Station.

I live a good 40min drive away from this place and only decided to go here because it was highly recommended by someone who comes here to get his takeaway who also lives as far! The place was busy with both sit down customers and a constant stream of take away customers. So this place must been exceptional.... right?? PARKING... More

Yen Lin is a small Chinese-Indo place in Goodmayes. Came here on a Saturday evening around 7pm with family. Was quiet when we arrived but was fully packed by 7.30pm so I would advise to pre-book if possible. A variety of vegetarian items on the menu which was a pleasant surprise. We opted for Chilli Paneer, Chilli Mogo, Chilli Mushrooms,... More
