So much food! We ordered the family dinner for 3 and went home with lots of leftovers! Would have been enough for 6! The food is fresh, the vegetables crisp, the rice fluffy. Despite being crowded with a wedding rehearsal dinner for 40, we still had excellent service and our food brought in a timely manner. The decor is traditional... More

I heard locals a other tables telling the folks with them that this was the best Chinese to be had in Evansville. One thing to know is that this restaurant is ala... More

Yen Ching is a perpetual winner of "Best Chinese Restaurant in Evansville." And for very good reason, folks. They have the finest menu-based Chinese dishes in Evansville, Indiana. Yen Ching's lunch buffet on Sunday cannot be beaten, in my opinion. As far as a daily lunch buffet from Tuesday thru Saturday, the best in Evansville is Canton Inn (located on... More

We bought the large family dinner. Wonderful variety, very tasty, very fast service. We took it home and the whole car was filled with the fantastic aroma! The best eggrolls and crab Rangoon ever. We already have plans to dine in again

We went on a Friday night at about 6:30. The restaurant wasn't crowded and we were seated immediately and given menus . Although servers walked by us no one asked for our drink order. After a few minutes we were asked by a server what we wished I asked for tea my sister requested water. It took long enough to... More

This it the place to go for fine dining Chinese. They occasionally have a buffet, but usually it is menu only. Their crab rangoon are the best in town. Very friendly owners. Highly recommend this place, although it is somewhat higher than other places.

No matter what we order, their food is outstanding. Carryout is ready in less than 10-minutes. The outside doesn't appear fancy, but the inside is a very nice. They offer large private seating in the rear of the building. The crab rangoon is out of this world. It's the real deal w/ real crab meat. Great egg rolls, pot stickers,... More
