To be fair, Yen Ching was a great restaurant a few years ago, until being sold by the owner. The new proprietors have turned the once great place into, for lack of better word, a dump. The food is bland, the atmosphere terrible and the...More

My family went here for dinner on a weeknight. The appetizers, entrees, and service were great, and we enjoyed looking at the pretty decorations and dragon statues. The tea was darker than my husband and I are used to, but if we lived the it...More

I can't believe how many negative reviews this place has! I live on the North Side of Dubuque, and this is the only Chinese restaurant on our end of town that delivers - literally! The lemon chicken and crabmeat rangoons are amazing, I can't say...More

If you're in the mood for Asian cooking, this place won't disappoint you. They've got it hot and spicy and sweet and sour. They'll give you pork, beef, chicken or a combination of all three. They have seafood, great appetizers like crab rangoon and egg...More

Yen Ching is a chain of forgetable Chinese restaurants. It is over-priced and the quality is at best mediocre. The ambiance at this location is nothing special and while I consider the employees hard working and dedicated, this is not a place beckoning a return...More

Our kids usually love any crab rangoon, but these were very greasy and strangely tough. Lunch entrees were average, but the fried rice served with the entrees tasted stale, like leftovers reheated.
