                                                Usually love Yen,go to before all concerts. Booked well in advance on opentable and got a email the day before asking me to confirm my booking if I was still planning on going, confirmed and then got an email at 7.30pm that night saying that they could not honour our booking so lucky and surprised that we managed to get booked elsewhere but we met people who had phoned to book and got no warning whatsoever and were left with no where to go as everything was full.

                                                Booked weeks in advance for a pre-concert meal and was called 3pm on the day of the booking to be told they couldn't honour it as the restaurant would be closed. They were aware of this in advance and should have informed customers before this.

                                                Restaurant took our booking last april but we were advised the day before on the 4th june that it was closed for redecoration. I feel we should have been informed well before to make other arrangements as you plan redecoration work

                                                Was this feedback request meant to be funny ??? The place is closed so never got to eat a meal before the concert.

                                                This was booked weeks before the date and with less that 24 hours notice got an email to say my booking had been cancelled as restaurant was closed until further notice. Wouldn't have been so bad but the day before I got an email asking me to confirm I was still coming then I noticed a review 6 days earlier stating she had turned up to the restaurant to find a closed door. It was closed a week before the date I was going so why give less then 24 hours notice. By that time other restaurants in the area were all fully booked. Very poor communication!

                                                Received an email at the last minute to say the restaurant was closed for the foreseeable future. I had received an email earlier that day to confirm I would still be going to the booking. Very disappointed at having to book somewhere else with less than a day’s notice.

                                                I would like to be writing a good review however on the day of my booking I was left a voicemail saying that my reservation was cancelled because the restaurant had to close. I know that things can happen suddenly bit there was no explanation left as to why the restaurant had to close.

                                                Booked this restaurant online for a meal before a concert and when we arrived it was all locked up with a notice on the door. If the restaurant is closed you could have put a notice on your website or made the it unavailable to book.

                                                Turned up for our reservation to find the restaurant was actually closed with no notification & no alternative arrangements After looking online found the restaurant had actually been closed for the past week so why were reservations being taken ? And why was I asked to confirm it the night before We were left with no other option for food as everywhere was fully booked as expected due to the concert if notified earlier we would have been able able to make alternative arrangements Poor customer service !

                                                Ordinarily a yes to recommend but when we arrived the restaurant was closed because of a fire. No advanced notification to those pre-booked. No securing or offering to secure a booking in the other restaurants already on the same site. This meant at the last minute having to, literally, run around to try and get anywhere with limited success. There should have at least been advanced notice it was closed and given us more opportunity to secure an alternative.

                                                It has shut down! Got an email from Open Table the day before to confirm the booking but when we turned up the place was in darkness and doors were locked! Nice one Open Table...

                                                Turned up having confirmed booking day before and it was closed, no prior notice. We were informed by another restaurant that there had been a small fire. Completely understand these things can't be helped but 2 or 3 e mails in the run up to going but not even an e mail to say it was closed! Resulted in no dinner, no parking, not a good start to a night.

                                                Highly disappointed to turn up on Monday evening with friends to find the restaurant shut. No explanation just a note on the door about maintenance issues. No message or answer when I called. Surely the restaurant could have contacted guests to let them know they wouldn’t be able to accommodate booked parties. Everywhere round about was fully booked so we had to go further afield to eat which wasn’t ideal before a show at the hydro. Had great meals in Yen previous to this, but now unsure that I would book again. Not impressed at all.

                                                The restraunt was shut for a refurbishment and we went with a table booked for a or concert meal booked on line to find out it was closed after we had drove through from Edinburgh this was quite disappointing as no were to eat after being organised and booking a table

                                                Restaurant was closed when we arrived with no warning or notice despite them contacting us the day before to confirm the booking, travelled from Edinburgh to Glasgow to eat here as a group of 5 and were left stranded with no other places locally that could accommodate us. Shocking, No staff on site to explain but a few hours later lots of staff out the back door removing all the food from the restaurant! AVOID AT ALL COSTS

                                                It was closed when we got there and had been for some time. I was very disappointed as we got a confirmation email for the booking. Really bad customer service as didn't bother letting us know and then we couldn't get anywhere else close by to eat as everything was fully booked. The other restaurants within the rotunda were not in the least bit bothered and most unhelpful. Will not be booking with them again. Appalling customer service.

                                                Booked a table for 3/6/19 got email confirmation. Turned up to find restaurant closed. No email text or phone call. Apparently kitchen problems. Spoke to rotunda staff who did allow us to use parking permit but due to concert being on they were fully booked and couldn't help us further. Had to go find a table in another establishment before we missed our concert. Total bad management and will not recommend or be back!

Would not recommend Yen to anyone

                                                I normally would, but on this occasion when we went to the Yen Oriental the restaurant was closed due to refurbishment, I received know conformation regarding this, so was very disappointed on this occasion, also the other thing is that the Yen Oriental is situated on the first floor & there is no lift available for elderly or disabled people who can not manage stairs.

                                                Made the booking online. The day before we were due to go here I received another email to say please confirm your booking which I did. We arrived at the restaurant to find it was shut for refurbishment!! No one called or emailed to let me know. Poor service. Prob won't be back.

                                                I would have given this a better review, had they informed me they were closed. My husband and I booked a table at this restaurant and thankfully phoned ahead as I was stuck in bad traffic to inform them we would be late only to be told that the restaurant was closed and had been for weeks. I had a confirmation email the day before we were due to eat here to confirm I was still coming, which I replied to say I was. I have had no apology, no explanation as to why I was not informed - nothing. Thankfully my husband knows the Glasgow area and we managed to find somewhere else to eat, however it was more expensive and further away. We were going to a show at the Hydro, so had to rush our meal to make sure we made it to the show in time Not how I wanted to spend my evening. Very disappointed

                                                I'm unable to rate my experience as we turned up to find the restaurant was closed for renovations. This was after receiving an email the night before from OpenTable asking us to confirm our booking to make sure the restaurant knew we were coming, which I did. We could see a member of staff in the restaurant who didn't acknowledge the fact that we were standing outside and wouldn't answer the phone. This is extremely frustrating as we were attending a gig at the hydro that evening so everywhere around that area was really busy, hence why I'd booked a table weeks in advance. We were very lucky that another restaurant was able to accommodate us at such short notice. I understand that renovations need to happen, but please don't take bookings when you know you will be closed, or at least contact those that have booked a table to let them know in advance instead of them turning up with no warning. I chose to book Yen as I was there a couple of years ago and the food was delicious, but I won't be booking again in the future as I feel let down and they have proven to be unreliable.

                                                I was asked to confirm my booking the day before my reservation only to arrive on the day to find the restaurant shut for renovations? With it being so late, we were unable to find another restaurant before the gig which we were going to and had to settle for fast food! Not happy at all with opentable or the restaurant and will probably not use this service again to be honest. Totally ruined our night.

                                                My daughter booked this as a birthday treat and we were going to a concert afterwards.. When we got to the restaurant it was closed we were outraged as only the day before I got an email to confirm we where still coming.. Will not ever book this restaurant again.

                                                Me and my husband had the chicken satay skewers as a starter, really tasty and the peanut sauce was the best we had tasted. Our next dish was katsu chicken. It was really nice however not enough of the sauce which left the rice a bit dry. I understand that it’s meant to be this way? I make it at home but make it with loads of sauce. The portions were ok sized but normally would like more, but going to a concert it’s probably best just having smaller sized portions. We would go back anyway as we did both enjoy the meal
