Great Chinese food & friendly service

The food here is pretty good. We usually get the Yenchim soup, pan fried noodles, Yenchim chicken, and Mongolian Beef. The soup is minced chicken with minced water chestnuts in a dark flavorful broth. The entrees are cooked to perfection every time we order. Service is friendly and fast. The... read more

Always a consistently well done meal. Menu is extensive with something to please all. Staff is friendly, quiet and efficient. Food is prepared as ordered and is fresh and tasty. Been there many times with extended family and they always seem happy to set up for larger party and treat the kids as honored guests.

Was this one of my best dining experiences - no. Is this the most requested restaurants from my children? Yes! Not even a close contest. We frequented this restaurant once a week as my children love the food here before moving out of the area. The service is second to none. My children loved the fact the waiters knew what... More

Not a mainstream eatery, not easy to find but worth the effort. Friendly staff, quick and efficient service during a busy Friday night a great choice for a family evening. I ordered the Yenchim Combo with shrimp, chicken, and pork in a basic brown sauce. For $12 It came steaming on a large platter with enough food for two or... More

This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can get authentic northern style chinese food. The green onion pancakes, pot stickers, and yang chow fried rice are awesome. To get the authentic stuff, you need to order from the chinese menu. There's a more american style menu and that food is good as well. It just depends... More

I have been eating here since i was in high school and now I take my kids here. The food is consistent and the service is great. I am hoping my kids will be taking their kids here. It's Chinese comfort food. Their pork fried rice is pork fried rice. Nothing special or crazy - just good old fashioned pork... More

Great lunch special for about $5-$7 served with soup (egg drop or hot n sour), main dish, rice, & egg roll. They have been in PQ for over 20 years and it is good family style food at dinner. Yenchin beef or chicken is a great dish to share or have for a lunch special.
