We have been eating there for over 2 years and have loved it every time. But suddenly there was a shift in wait staff and management. At least one waiter is definitely running a scam and possibly another or someone in the kitchen. Do not eat there unless you enjoy being treated like a thief. Will never go back.

I am a fan of cashew chicken. So when I saw they had cashew chicken with shrimp it was a no brainier. The price was $12.95 and a was expecting an average serving. When the dinner arrived it was much larger than I expected. It had a very good but not overpowering flavor. I had trouble finishing the plate. I... 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.
