We loved everything about this restaurant including the decor, spacious booth seating, delicious food, and great service. The chicken chow mein was our family favorite (includes 3 kids under 10) due to the perfect fresh veggies and excellent flavor. We will definitely dine there again.

We had not been to Yen Ching for a couple of years and took some friends there some trepidation. The food was great, the atmosphere unchanged, and the service was efficient and pleasant. All of our dishes were well-prepared and were served quickly and well-spiced. We will be back again very soon.

The food is ALWAYS good here but the hot and sour soup is exceptional. We order it by the bucketful. I've even brought my own pot to be filled when my husband was sick and wanted soup. We are never disappointed with the food. The waitstaff are always helpful and friendly. It's our go to place. Make it yours too.

This is simply a jewel in Tacoma. We've been eating wonderful Chinese dishes at Yen Ching for more than 20 years. We've NEVER had a bad experience! Hot and sour soup, sweet and sour pork, beef and broccoli, and chicken and garlic are our favorites. The wait staff is super courteous and friendly. It's the best part of Tacoma's International District. You will NOT be disappointed!

Everybody loves a good Chinese meal. Regardless of the frequency of your personal tastes, when you want to treat yourself (and all of your important others), this is the best place to go in all of Pierce County. From the time you walk in until your departure, you are in for a real treat. It matters not what you order, everything (and I do mean everything) from appetizers through desert (if you are up to it), will be served at the appropriate temperature and will be exceptional. This establishment has been in Tacoma for over 20 years. I really don't know how well it is known. Regarless, once you've been to the Yen Ching, you'll be back, and you'll tell your friends. It's that good.
