A top restaurant for the area

Jimmy Jeng's Szechwan serves some of the best food in the Evansville area. This location has long been the place for great Chinese food. Across the street from the mall entrance in the south corner.

always get the dumpling. Hot tea, jasmine, great! Fantasy Pork is a wonderful dinner dish for under 10 $. this is Not a buffet. Sit down and many who come here will dress up a bit, tie not required, but you will feel under dressed in just a T shirt. Jimmy is there every day, ask about his dumpling club... More

The crab Rangoon and General Tsao's chicken were incredible, homemade versus your typical frozen food service version. Jimmy and his wife make sure to speak with each of their guests and the service is top notch. Don't be out off by their location in a strip mall, this may be the only thing that hurts them, because the food and... More

The unfortunate thing about this restaurant is that it is 'hidden' away in a strip mall. The food is phenomenal and the staff will spoil you with prompt, courteous service. The owner makes a point to speak to you personally and recommend dishes. We could not have been more pleased with our experience.

We were visiting family in Evansville, and another relative had come in from Michigan. We wanted to do something special, and Mom's friend in the restaurant business said, "Try Jimmy Jeng's." We humored her, thinking well, it' can't be that bad, even if it is in Evansville, which is known for being a backwater. From the outside, it didn't look... More

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
