Yes for drinkin' no for eatin' – What can I say, Karaoke good, adult beverages good, if Daves still there even better! As far as the food goes I have walked by the kitchen several times and doesn't look too sanitary... Someone call the health department! And I had the pleasure of being there when there was no heat.. in the dining room... there are plenty of places to eat in greenwood... But if Dave is workin' and karaoke is going then the drinks will be excellent and the vibe will be good. But of course if you walk in there on a night when the owner Wendy is working... Thats another story... I'd say unless you want a watered down cocktail and someone who owns the place standing there trying to get you to tip them constantly....run over to the baranoff!!
Ahhh, Yen Wor, such mixed feelings I have for thee. – Yen Wor is the perfect place to drink away your sorrows. The timing of this review being apropos in it's proximity to the both beloved/dreaded Valentine's Day. Yen Wor is near a friend's house and we go for karaoke on random nights when we're too lazy to go anywhere else. If nothing else, you will feel more "normal" after spending time there. I often hear that "americanized" chinese food restaurants can be some of the best places to get a cocktail, I have no idea if that's true but at least Yen Wor has a full bar and space to hang out while you cry into your beverage of choice over a love unrequited.
bland and greasy – The service was good and the food is not terribly expensive but it's very bland and way too greasy. The pork fried rice tastes like China Express in Safeway but with slightly fresher vegetables. General Tso's chicken is the worst I've had. More breading than chicken and hardly any spice. The shrimp chowmein looks like it was made with dehydrated ramen.
