Yan Yan's cuisine offers authentic and tasty Chinese food, served in traditional Chinese dishes, with rich and appetizing flavors and aromas.
Let's warm up with Hoisin soup, taste the steamed fish in sweet sour sauce, go for the chicken or beef in satay sauce or try our noodles, stir-fried with shrimps or seafood and fresh vegetables.
We immigrated to Israel from China in the 1970s and chose to settle in Haifa. In 1984, after years of assimilation into the Israeli society, we opened a restaurant downtown, under the name Sini. The restaurant was named after two of the family daughters – Si and Ni. Today our restaurant is called Yan Yan, and Si is the one who runs it.
A little hop to China
In Yan Yan we offer diners a homely and cozy atmosphere with personal service. Our menu dishes were shaped to the taste and desires of our regular customers. Many of them grew up on Yan Yan's kitchen and celebrated family events there, from childhood to adulthood.
Every day many regular customers arrive here, including Haifaians addicted to Si’s Chinese food, Israelis who travel in Haifa and wish to enjoy oriental food, many tourists and Chinese who miss their homemade food and more. We invite you too to try and indulge in tastes, aromas and sights that will make you feel you've have just hopped to the Far East.
