This restaurant was right across the street from our motel, which is why we went there.

It was clean and had nice decor. Service was very good. Had a pretty good menu, which also offered American food (in case there are those in your party that don't like Chinese food)

We ordered Spicy Pork and Garlic Chicken, with steamed rice.

The rice seemed ultra dry - as if it had been precooked a while ago and then rewarmed. Both dishes were very tasty, athough I wouldn't call the Spicy Pork 'spicy'. The spice was extremely mild. Both the pork and chicken chunks were extremely tender and the garlic sauce was good. Vegetables in the dishes included diagonally sliced celery, which was very fresh, and Chinese pea pods, also very fresh.

Lum Yuen has all the standard Chinese food on the menu. It is very carefully cooked and not oversalted and they don't use MSG. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous. Have been there several times and enjoyed everything we ordered. Family style service available if requested.

Craving chinese? NE Salem location offers two lunch specials during the week. Today I had the Green Bean Chicken which came with Pork Fried Rice and two Crab Puffs! -- $5.75 i think. So much food I took some home for dinner. Hot tea is included. Service is friendly and fast. Great option if you are looking for something fresh and quick for lunch. Would highly recommend. Their menu includes american dishes like hamburgers and fish and chips, but I have never ordered the.

This long time Northgate Chinese eatery offers several things consistently: friendly service (same staff for many years), fast service (my meal was ready in less than 10 minutes), affordable prices ($6.50 lunch special), and large portion sizes (I was full eating half my meal). I ordered the daily special: sweet and sour shrimp, pork chow mein and pork fried rice. Honestly, the food is right down the middle in terms of Americanized Chinese cuisine. The flavors are familiar and safe - this is probably Salem’s most popular Chinese among seniors. Not a lot has changed here in decades and there’s something to be said for knowing what you will experience.
