Such great helpful staff there! The food was really good. We stopped in for lunch. We had a noodle soup & potstickers. Both were so good! If we ever get back to Evansville-we would definitely go again.

This is hands down the best Chinese restaurant I have visited in Evansville. The food is made cooked to order, and portions are always enough that you have another meal left over.

Yen Ching has long been a family favorite for Chinese food. Eat in or take out it is all delicious. My favorite General Tso Shrimp has a light breading which gives it great crispness and that magical Tso sauce I love so well. The hot and sour soup is tied for my favorite along with the seafood soup for two.... More

I have been coming to this location for many years. My favorite is the Sunday Buffet. It is only offered on this day and the buffet is limited but always fresh and wonderful. The rest of the time it is an order off of the menu, sit down and be served restaurant. I like the atmosphere. Truly sets the tone... More

My husband and I stopped in for a leisurely Saturday afternoon lunch. We were the only diners in this cozy place and the food was quite good but an employee restaurant paced around the entire dining room, holding an open laptop and loudly speaking on a cell phone! When our main course arrived, my husband said something to our waitress... More

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

Yen Ching Chinese Restaurant reminds me of the place that I went to as a kid in the 60s. Then food was pretty good as was the service. 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
