Ma and I wanted to dine in, but the restaurant was only opened for carryout due to a broken dishwasher. The restaurant was still very accommodating. Sometimes, Chinese tastes better out of a box anyways!

Sweet & Spicy Thai Wings: Now, based on the menu description, I expected these to be tossed in a sweet and spicy Thai sauce, but it was served on the side. Bummer! The wings still tasted good, moist on the inside, crispy on the outside. Tip: Toss the wings in the sauce so that it caramelizes. This will really up the ante!

Chicken Fried Rice: Chicken, Carrots, white onion, peas and egg. Pretty standard. I did have to pay an extra 75 cents to add the egg to the fried rice which I didn’t like.

Beef in Garlic Sauce: Beef sauteed with broccoli, mushrooms, baby corn, green pepper, and water chestnut in a slightly spicy garlic, brown sauce. Pretty tasty, with a rich garlicy sauce. I would’ve like some onions, but the veggies were crunchy and fresh.

Yum Yum Express has better prices then other local Asian restaurants. The food is decent, not the best, but not the worst. Service was really good and we were greeted with smiling faces. The inside of the dining room is really nice, with bright walls, and a modern design. Yum Yum Express offers party trays which sets them apart from the rest. Stop in and check em out!
