I wanted to try Peking Duck at a luxury restaurant while in Taipei and Yen did not dissapoint! Excellent quality and very attentive and friendly staff. They recommended pre-order but the whole duck was available even though we had not pre-ordered.

W Taipei is clearly not where it's at, at least not at 8pm on a very rainy Saturday night. We had a nice cocktail in the empty bar on floor 31 then moved into Yen proper for dinner. An odd vibe, half empty and half the tables occupied had kids running around, the other half incessantly on their mobile phones.... More

The food, view and service was really nice but didn't feel it was worth the money. The serving sizes were small and although the food was different and unusual didn't think it was so amazing to justify the price. Do recommend the wasabi prawns!

The view, although great, is not the best thing about this restaurant. The food is exquisitely crafted and the service exceeds even the great service that I've come to expect from W Taipei. Must try if you ever have the chance Thank you, angie, for making an excellent night unforgettable.

This restaurant went out of its way to be accommodating in reservation and service. I'm impressed. I made reservations on line and requested a window. The restaurant responded with window availability. Problem solved. I'm seated at the window. I'm finishing a Hendricks martini. Andy, my waiter, has solved ordering issues with a smile. Too much Peking duck? No problem. Andy... More
