The Brooklyn Paper's article "The best places to chow down outside of Chinatown" has a "shortlist of Chinese chow worth checking out if you’re not willing to make the trek to Brooklyn’s ethnic enclaves." About Yen Yen Restaurant and Bar it says
This Chinese joint isn’t just known for its food — it’s campy, well-priced and tasty. We like this place because it serves old-school cocktails like a mai tai — complete with brightly colored paper tropical umbrellas perched in the glass; it makes us feel like we’re in the 1960s, and it’s Christmas eve.
Hunan and Szechuan cuisines are served.
