Yen ching is by far the best chinese food in Evansville! But don't let the food fool you, this is not a fine dining experience! In my 5 years of living in evansville I have eaten at yen ching hundreds of times, and each time hoping to be treated better. The asian servers poor water too quickly, often spilling it on or around you. They don't greet you with a smile, but rather stare at your blankly, expecting you to know they want your drink order. And by the end of your meal, you could be waving your hands around & standing on your chair to get your check, and BELIEVE me, they will get to you when they WANT to get to you. If you are willing to put up with being treated like an intrusion, the food IS great thought. Kate
Best Chinese in town (well, along with Shing Lee). Yen Ching has Szechuan dishes, as well as Contonese and Mandarin. Service has never been too slow or unfriendly, and the food is always delicious. Best Ma Po Tofu I've had in years. The red and gold decor is fabulous, as is the stamped tin (?) ceiling and artwork. Order the potstickers--well worth the wait of 15 minutes it takes the kitchen to prepare them fresh. I've tried many entrees here and have never been disappointed. The lunch special prices are unbeatable. Dinner is just a little pricey than some Chinese restaurants, but the quality and portion sizes are well worth it.
Thank goodness we finally have a restaurant in Evansville that has something for everyone. Only one thing was missing. They needed lo mein noodles on the buffet. Other than that it was absolutely perfect. Even a vegetarian would be delightfully surprised. The Mongolian Bar was my favorite . Incredible! All of us agreed this restaurant will catch on big. Thank you so much for a wonderful dining experience. We will definitely be regulars of this fantastic restaurant.
