Yen Ching has been around for many years and it Is still the best in the Indianapolis area. In fact their food is better then most restaurants in Chicago's Chinatown. Thank you Yen Ching!

This place sucks. The food caused the squirts and it tasted like crap too. Go a few blocks down the road and eat at Panda Express if you must have Chinese.

I used to live in Indiana and even when I come back to visit I sometimes run in here. From my experience the food quality is good, but the service I get is consistently great. I'm not sure how business has been for them as of late but I always enjoyed my time here quite fondly.

Met a friend at Yen Ching for lunch. The service is good, the food comes out fast, and is good. I had the cashew chicken and asked them to spice it up a bit, which they did and it was really tasty. The Hot & Sour soup is the best in Indianapolis.

Four of us met for dinner. We were treated excellently. Our server was wonderful. I worked in a Chinese Restaurant years ago. The Food at Yen Ching was better than expected.

This was my third time eating at this restaurant, but the food was just not that good. The varieties of the buffet were ok, but the food wasn't do good. I wouldn't consider this restaurant as authentic or gourmet. I'm surprised this place was chosen as number one local Chinese restaurant in Indy in 2013. Maybe I have to try... More

The food was good and came quickly however the waitress was not exactly.the friendliest. Owner came and explained the.food we had asked about since she couldn't reply. She paced the floor a bit.before.we were finished and after we paid.she said "you go" .we thought this.was strange. She didn't seem to want to be there at all.

Used to love this place. perfect, affordable and generous lunch special. Several years ago, the restroom started stinking from sewer gas. Owners have done many things to try and stop the smell ( some that people told them to do which was not safe or productive) I finally explained it is an old building and all the new buildings and...

We were staying at the hotel next to this restaurant, so we called in a to go order. The egg drop soup was very good and the szechuan scallops were excellent. Crab rangoon was good, don't know if they don't provide the sauce that usually goes with them or if they forgot to put it in so was disappointed with... More

In the 1990's, it was great to go to Yen Ching on Michigan Rd. The food was good, freshly made, hot, and authentic. The service people friendly, the place buzzing nicely with diners, but still a few tables open -- thus, not frenetic. Even 11, 12 yrs ago, groups like book club had dinner there, and it was fine. We... More
