What everyone says about the sweet dumplings is true - they are sooo good! So eat at Jimmy's at least for the dumplings! But you can't go wrong with any of their entrees. The flavor of the dishes seem so enhanced and just a notch above to similar restaurants. We had the Kung Pao Chicken and the Imperial Chicken. They... More

Had the meal I was served at JJ's been purchased in NY, San Fran, DC or other major metro area, it would have barely registered on the culinary scale. In Evansville, it warrants a 6.5 due mainly to context. Service was excellent, bordering on overbearing. My calamari appetizer looked more like calamari bites. Small pieces, over breaded, Taste OK, not... More

In a world where there is so much mediocre and often bad Chinese food, Jimmy Jeng's Szechwan is the answer! The ambience is that befitting the high-class restaurant that it is and the service is second to none. Beware - There's no stale, Americanized buffet junk there. This is delicious cooked to order, authentic food that is customized to your... More

We have been to Chinese restaurants in San Francisco's Chinatown and many other large cities across the US; none of them compare to Jimmy's. We live about an hour and a half from Evansville, but make the drive multiple times a year simply to eat at Jimmy's. His service is unparalleled; Jimmy and his wife Tina are always at the... More

My son and daughter spent more than a year living in Taiwan, so they were very pleased to find Jimmy Jeng's served food that is very much like what they ate in Taiwan. The food is excellent and fresh and the service is excellent. Tucked away in a corner in Eastland Plaza, be sure to look for it when looking... More

Food is always delicious and high quality!! Friendly staff too!! I often have to order carryout, but it is always hot, correct amd on time. The last time I was at the restaurant itself. The service was great! I prefer Jimmy Jeng's over amy chinese or asian cuisine in town.

Ate here on a recent visit with my daughter. What a great find. All the reviews are acurate. The husband and wife who own provide wonderful service. The decor is a step back in Chinese resturant time, cute as can be. Food was fresh and quick and pleasent service. Highly reccomend.

I have never been to this restaurant when I have not been greeted/seated by the owners themselves. Jimmy has a talent for making even first time customers feel like they are the only people in the room. The food is fresh and wonderful. I highly recommend the dumplings if you can take a little heat.
