Jimmy Gao's Szechwan with Dann and Ashley! I have been here before but, not written a review for it. So... long over due, here it is... As a starter, we ordered the Fried spicy Calamari. It came with a spicy mustard and a sweet & sour sauce, for dipping. "Spicy girl, huh?", our server said to... read more

My wife and I stopped in for dinner on Friday after thanksgiving. We like eating at local places in the cities we visit, so a quick scan of TripAdvisor led us to Jimmy Jengs. Once we walked in, we were greeted by a friendly staff and ushered to our table. Our waiter was very polite, friendly, and very helpful with... More

This restaurant was a favorite for me while in college in Evansville from 2001-2005. I've moved back as of 2014, and this restaurant, while under new management, is JUST as tasty and delicious. The meat is of very high quality, which makes everything taste better. My favorite dishes include: 1) Wonton Soup- this is light and tasty and delicious. NOTHING... More

My husband and I had heard good things about this place...all I can say is yuck! I have never had Chinese food cooked with that much rice vinegar in my life. The food was so saturated with oils you could not taste the difference between chicken and beef. They accidentally brought us the wrong appetizer, then charged us for it... More

This is in my opinion the best Chinese food in Evansville. The staff is friendly but efficient. I like the pork lo mein and the shrimp in coconut.

This place is awesome! The service is so quick and efficient. We ordered and within minutes our soup came. Before we even finished our soup our entrees were served. The food was delicious. We will definitely be back!

You've got to try the dumplings! Really! This is a nice sit down restaurant with super nice staff. Usually the owner, Jimmy, is there and is kind and personable. But lets get to the food. Soooo good!! I've tried several dishes and loved them all. At this point my favorite dish is the Empress Chicken. It's sweet and you can... More

I picked up food here to go one afternoon around 4pm. The place was empty, but it was right before dinner time so I did not expect there to be a crowd. I ordered crab rangoons and sweet and sour chicken with fried rice to go. The service was very friendly and greeted me as I walked in and waited... More
