This is the BEST Chinese place that I ve found. I especially love their sizzling rice soup! My husband and I adore this restaurant and drive 40 minutes just to eat there. We ve been going there for 8 years. The food is fabulous, but the servers are unforgettable. They ve taken the time to get to know us and know our names when we come in. They even know our regular order. We only go there 4-5 times per year. If you are looking for a nicer Chinese restaurant with great staff, please consider Yen Ching!!! I highly recommend it!
Food was incredibly bland. Egg roll cabbage was tough and too chewey. Wontons were overcooked and dry. Waiter forgot our tea and was super slow. Main dishes (Ming's Beef & Almond Chicken) were atrocious... flavorless, slimey in texture... and meat was like cow-hide... Almond cChicken had way too many carrots and was equally flavorless... both dishes arrived luke warm. Very disappointed. Highly unlikely that we'll ever return. Didn't have the heart to tell the people at the checkout how bad it was.
I was looking forward to my meal until I scooped rice on my plate, only to find a used kleenex in it. I was so grossed out I couldn't eat- told our waitress, the manager brought over a banana dessert that I didn't want and wouldn't remove the cost of my entree from the bill. Just the name Yen Ching makes me want to puke.
I have heard that the food is good, but can't seem to make myself try again.
I love this place. I go here mostly to lunch as it is close by. i love the food and its great value for money we are surly up on the deal :). The food is very flavorful. I love the hot braised pork and the braised fish(dinner) is fantastic.
The dinner is also very good. NOthing to complain about this place.
We went to Yen Ching after reading all those positive reviews. However, it turned out to be a very disappointed experience. Food is not right and it is not genuine Chinese cuisine. All dishes are cooked with a strange sweet-sour-brownish sauce and do not taste right. Reception was not friendly as well. Waiter was ok, but he is not knowledgeable about the menu, therefore, he could not tell you which dish is good. If you really want to try this restaurant out, I suggest you order only one dish first.
Yen Ching has the best sizzling rice soup! The shrimp in lobster sauce is white, as it is supposed to be, not brown. The Ming's Beef and the Budda's Delight are delicious! Everything I have tried there has been wonderful.
The owners are gracious and accommodating. The wait staff is prompt and polite. Best chinese restaurant around, in my opinion.
Best items on the menu: Hot & Sour Soup, Pot Stickers, Mongolian Beef and Bejing Chicken (boneless). Amazing food no matter what you get! The oweners are family friends so we go here probably once a week. It's clean, smoke free, amazing service and great food...what more could you want? Also a great date place, business lunches, or family restraunt!
