When I grew up in RVA (decades ago), there wasn't ANYTHING like Yen Ching. Very good food. I had sesame shrimp and it was delicious. Service was a bit rough, but I think they just aren't at full staff yet (pandemic). But it's a lovely...atmosphere and really good foodMore

I ordered twice cooked pork or hot pork. They gave me beef and no pork! Disgusting! I can't eat red meat, just pork. Never again will I deal with this nonsense Don't order delivery because how do you Express your issues?

Internet order for pick-up. Did look nice inside. Kind of standard. Could have been better if we were allowed to dine inside. Ready in a timely fashion.

I've eaten at their other locations (Hull St., Midlothian Tnpk.) on multiple occasions for last 3 decades. It was always competent and instantly recognizable Chinese version of comfort food that I've come to appreciate. At the West Broad location, the food was just TERRIBLE. It...looked and tasted nothing like what we had at their other locations. Every single dish we ordered was bad except for one, Hunan shrimp and it was just OK. They gave us Sichuan beef when we ordered Hunan beef. And it was lacking vegetables that usually come with Sichuan beef. Their Mongolian beef was unrecognizable and flavorless. Their signature Yen Ching soup was also awful, nothing like their counterpart at other locations. Hot and sour soup was very bland and didn't have that rich brown color. Mapo tofu was watery and bland, utterly lacking in any hint of spice, with cosistency more like a soup. Sesame chicken was soggy and also bland. They did not even include any utensils in our carrryout order. This was by far the worst Chinese carryout ever. The hack that cooks food at this location should be fired for masquerading as a chef. Either that or their real chef was out with illness that day.More

We ordered carry out for 5. Food was ok. Not great,not terrible. Just ok. Quantity of food was very good but we all agreed that it was kind of bland. It definitely lacked seasoning. We ordered 1 white rice and 5 fried rice. When we...got our order home we only had 1 fried and 1white rice. Overall not impressed at all with the flavor of the food. Probably would not go back.More

We always have found the food to be delicious, no matter what we've ordered. Our family favorite is the Crispy Chicken from the dinner menu. Their service has always been very attentive. We've had many family dinners there, marking birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations.

I love eating there. No matter what I order it is always outstanding. My favorite meal is Double Happiness. I always have some to take home and eat the next day. I also love their Hone crispy Chicken.

The first time I went there I ordered hot tea. It was derived hot and perfect (not weak like some places). Then we ordered white meat chicken chow mien. Awesome! Each time we get the same thing but we also get a bunch of soups...and sides. We always come back for more. Our only complaint would be the volcano drink - too sugary and wrong ratio of flavors. Great ambiance.More

Decent food and reliable. Except, when my delivery order got screwed up and never came I was told it was on the way. After another call, told it wasn’t coming. So, mistakes happen. That’s understood. When I told the manager, he said ‘no problem’ give...me your credit card number and I’ll replace the order. Really! After a 2 hour wait, you want me to drop $40 on a meal that cost you $2.50? Business must be real goodMore
