The food is hot and delicious. I had ice water, hot tea, and generals chicken with egg roll and fried rice. The service was excellent and the food was fresh and delicious.

I have been having lunches, and an occasional dinner, here for years. Yen Ching is the standard for Chinese restaurants in the Peoria area. Somehow they have managed to keep up the quality over many years and several owners. The food is always the same,...More
