We have eaten at Yen Ching once. A 10 out of 10 for food, service and all around niceness. Ah, but the delivery service! Our food arrives hot, delicious and timely by the friendliest delivery folks in town. Kung Pao is my favorite. The wife loves the Chicken Chow Mein. Need to include the... read more

I will never order from the Yen Ching Midlothian location ever again! Worse customer service I have ever seen. I ordered the Crispy Chicken last night and told them NOT spicy, however when I got home to eat it later it was EXTREMELY spicy so I ate the rest of my meal (chicken w. broccoli) and decided since it was...

I made a point to eat at Yen Ching while visiting Richmond, and was not disappointed. I enjoyed both the food and the excellent service, even late on a mid-week evening. I ordered an egg roll and General Tso's Chicken. The egg roll was packed full of good stuff, and was nice and crisp. The General Tso's was unique and... More

I've been here since I was a child and love this restaurant. This is the ONLY Chinese restaurant I will go to for food. The staff (manager) is friendly and even knows my name when I call in on the phone, take out, or even when I dine in. The Governors Chicken Kew is my favorite and is very tasty.... More

As we travel full time I've been looking for a good Chinese restaurant for about 6 months. The last good place was in little rock AR. Yen Ching was great. I had the honey shrimp and my wife had General Tso chicken. Both were wonderful. So much so that we will be back before we start heading north. Do yourself... More

There are many Chinese restaurants in Richmond, none compare with food quality and service like Yen Ching, specially try the Crispy Chicken or their version of General Tso chicken, delicious indeed

I had eaten here many times before but I finally talked my wife into going today for lunch and she really liked it. She got the fried rice with shrimp while I got the scallops and shrimp with rice. We were both pleased and definitely full when we left. Great service, very friendly waitress and the place was spotless. She... More

I ate here on an early Friday evening. The service was great, but I was only one of three tables so it is hard to judge. The restaurant was clean and all the staff friendly. I had the crab rangoons. They weren't sweet like I prefer, but very smooth, clearly made in-house. The general tso's chicken is well prepared. Firm,... More

We ordered Egg Roll, Shanghai Egg Roll, Egg Drop Soup, Crispy Honey Shrimp and General Tso's Chicken. All were excellent. The Crispy Honey Shrimp is in a mild, smooth and sweet sauce that was much sweeter than we expected but delicious. The General Tso chicken was also excellent. Restaurant was clean and spacious. Service was fast and polite. There was... More
