I eat here often and like everything on the menu. I prefer to get takeout. They are very accommodating and can easily make adjustments.

Great place for lunch. Food is consistently excellent. Hot and sour soup is one of the best I have had anywhere. Friendly staff as well. Great value for your money. A must stop for lunch when I am in Dubuque.

I've been to Yen Ching many times, and I am always pleased! The service staff was friendly and helpful. The food itself is always good, they do a great chow mein! I would definitely recommend this place, it's a personal favorite.

The Chinese was just pretty bad. Edible, but not enjoyable. Dubuque has a surprisingly decent amount of options when it comes to Chinese, so best... More

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 restaurant a little dirty (not in the good, small Chinese restaurant kind of way). 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 would easily be considered our go to restaurant for Chinese sit down or take out.... More
