hits the spot for Chinese

This is one of Richmond's best Chinese restaurants. The food is always delicious and served piping hot. Dishes can also be cooked to your specifications. We've been there many times, and on our recent visit we decided to try two new dishes. We ordered the shredded beef and the shrimp with... read more

I can always count on good food, and when I ask for something special to be done for my food they do it just right. I have always been treated with kindness. The atmosphere is always good. Not to fancy but just right. Never have I had a bad meal.

Great place to eat but not for Christmas Day! Place was packed with only two waitresses and minimum staff to run. In addition, though we have ordered the same dishes here as before, they burned the fried rice making all food inedible. While taking the issue to management, they indicated their was nothing wrong despite leaving 3/4 of the food... More

During a trip to Richmond, my wife and I went to the Yen Ching restaurant because of the good reviews in Tripadvisor. Our high expectations were exceeded. The server was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable, and made excellent recommendations. The food was outstanding, cooked to perfection. The decor was beautiful, with many booths instead of the usual big open space. This is... More

The service here is great. We are greeted and seated promptly, and we get great service. The ambience is wonderful. The food is delicious. This is the way Chinese restaurants in America have stayed open and popular year after year. All of these new Chinese type restaurants just don't compare to the well operated traditional Chinese restaurants. This restaurant has... More

Good Chinese food is somewhat of a rarity; it took us a few years to find Yen Ching but we've been going back ever since. Everything is freshly made and the proteins are real animal and in textures/shapes/colors that one would expect to fund them in; no chewy mystery meat or wondering if you're eating grade C poultry. I would... More

This place is consistent. It was cold when we went here, and the hot tea warmed us. There were three of us, and each enjoyed what we ordered. I've been going here over twenty years, and I have enjoyed everything when I dine here.

We go to Yen Ching often. It is our go to for Chinese food. The food is excellent, they have a lot of variety and the service is very good. The owner is polite and friendly and greets the customers with a smile. Great food and great service. Who could ask for more?

The service at the restaurant used to be adequate, but I am not sure what has happened in the past several months as the place has truly become rude. Simple orders are messed up and when you bring this to attention, either language or other reasons are given as excuses. Never an apology or even a sense of ownership for... More

This is my go to place for soup when I feel like I'm getting a cold. It's a favorite Chinese restaurant with an extensive menu. Beautiful atmosphere makes for a romantic date.
