“Quite honestly some of the worst Chinese food we have ever eaten”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We ate at Yen Ching one evening after reading all the good reviews. The decor was cute, and the service was good, but the food was terrible and overpriced. I ate there with my husband and mother, and we all got something different, but they all tasted almost exactly the same. The food was incredibly bland, and the only seasoning seemed to be some kind of salty, nearly flavorless sauce. This was honestly some of the worse Chinese food any of us have ever eaten, and that includes cheap, hole-in-the-wall restaurants. At around $10 a plate it was also overpriced. We will NOT be going back.

“Great Week Saturday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Got there at opening on Sat. Wow what a meal. Best Pot Stickers I have ever eaten and they had a Spicy Cashew Chicken that was out of this world.
If you have never eaten here you need to

“Love this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Everything is delicious, so we eat here every time we are in Ozark. It has a great atmosphere, terrific food, and fantastic service. The only negative was that there is a VERY strong sewer smell as you head down the hall to the restrooms and the smell is really awful in the actual restroom. Everything is very clean, though.

“This is a "Must Eat There" Resturant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Folks this is a great place to eat. The food was Superior, the atmosphere is Superior, the Service is Superior. This is the second time I have eaten at this Resturant. These folks have been in the Springfield Area a long time and have maintained a quality that says "come back".
Make a planned visit to this Resturant and you will be glad you did
