This is THE dumpling place to go!! While you are there get the green onion pancakes. We never make it to the menu-- we eat dozens of dumplings and calm it dinner! The pork and cabbage, hot or small juicy are the best! They serve beer..... What more could you want!?

this used to be a favorite of ours, but since the owner sold out and moved away, we don't think the food is as good. we used to love the apple shrimp but have tried it twice and don't think the current owners or cooks are doing the same things. to us now it is just another oriental restaurant, nothing...

Tried it a couple of months ago and was very pleased. I have now been going about once a week! Their style of cooking is a little different from the typical Chinese restaurants and is delicious. I have been trying their spicy dishes and the Dragon Beef and Crazy Beef are my favorites so far. Very friendly and attentive staff.... More

We chose this restaurant based on the customer reviews and we were VERY pleased! The atmosphere is nice and the service is superb! They make you feel very welcome and comfortable and will joke around with you. The food was absolutely wonderful too! I would recommend anyone in the Evansville Area to eat here!

We visit this restaurant when we have a craving for sauteed green beans wrapped in a thin flour tortilla. They are delicious. The ambiance is inviting and comfortable. Jimmy is always there. However, I think the name of this location may have changed. Check your local listings...

This is my second time to try Jimmy Jeng's and was not disappointed. Both times my wife and I arrived a little late and it's almost like having a quiet dinner just the 2 of us. The service is spot on and the food is great! We think it's the best won ton soup that we have ever had. Everything... More

I liked this restaurant for three reasons, the waiter was friendly and the food is delicious not to mention how quiet the place is.

I've never been inside but I've enjoyed the food several times. I've called ahead and ordered take out several times. Each time the food has been very good. Always hot and fresh. Portions are large and phone staff was pleasant.

Jimmy Gao's Szechwan with Dann and Ashley! I have been here before but, not written a review for it. So... long over due, here it is... As a starter, we ordered the Fried spicy Calamari. It came with a spicy mustard and a sweet & sour sauce, for dipping. "Spicy girl, huh?", our server said to Ashley, when she asked... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner on Friday after thanksgiving. We like eating at local places in the cities we visit, so a quick scan of TripAdvisor led us to Jimmy Jengs. Once we walked in, we were greeted by a friendly staff and ushered to our table. Our waiter was very polite, friendly, and very helpful with... More
