When the dinner arrived it was much larger than I expected. It had a very good but not overpowering flavor. I had trouble finishing... read more

You will be impressed as soon as you walk in the door with the elaborate decorations and great aroma. It's very well kept and the details in the wall art are all gold and unlike any other Chinese place I've been before. It didn't stop there because the food was so authentic tasting and out of this world. We ordered... More

Great Chinese food with a ton of selections, this gem on South Green River Road is overlooked by many who head to the buffets but this family owned restaurant goes out of its way to offer excellent food at good prices. The beef and broccoli is a local standard and prepared fresh and hot. The interior of the place has... More

I travel for a living. I am all over the US. I have yet to find a restaurant for Chinese as good as Yen Ching. I live in Evansville and travel out 2 - 4 weeks a month. I have tried many different restaurants while traveling and they just don't get it quite right. When I am home for my... More

My favorite chinese restaurant in Evansville. So many wonderful dishes to try, not matter which one I get, I am not disappointed. Also, have to get the egg rolls. My son loves the combo fried rice. We usually get carry-out, but the restaurant always looks nice.

This place has some of the best food. Their fried rice and crab Rangoon are definitely the best I've had. Great atmosphere and such polite workers!

The staff is always friendly and attentive, and the food really is the best Chinese cuisine in Evansville. The orange beef has an excellent balance between sweet, savory and spicy, and the crab rangoons are generously-stuffed and always cooked perfectly.
