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

We were seated at front booth. It smelled like poop. Waitress was extremely rude and angry and after prodding, FINALLY and reluctantly moved us to a back booth away from the stink. Should have left then. Bad food, appetizers for two was greasy and overcooked. MuShu chicken served in soft taco shells!Poor service, crabby, rude waitress, and it seemed that... More

This restaurant has started to slowly decline. The food is still edible, but nothing exciting and sometimes it just seems tired--not as fresh and well presented as it should be. Have only done take out recently and even that was sub par.

My daughter and I ate dinner here and we were both very disappointed. For appetizers we ordered crab Rangoon and I had hot and sour soup. The crab filling was not at all sweet, but rather had an off, briny taste. The soup was overly full of black pepper and seemed very floury. My daughter ordered pepper steak which the... More
