It's been a long time since we've had such a good Chinese meal. We started with the Wonton soup for two. It had a nice over tone of sesame oil and a tasty clear broth with flavorful veggies. The topper was the Sesame Chicken. Imagine small chicken tenders which were Really tender. Loved it. We were camping nearby and got... More

I went with my mom to celebrate her birthday. The service was good. The food was also good. It was a friendly atmosphere. The food was reasonably priced for a lunch menu.

I was just informed by my best "foodist" friend that this legendary Oriental cuisine titan has returned to the Gateway area (same location) after a rather-mysterious absence. They boast gourmet selections and a Sunday buffet that is concise and just right for after-church outings. My favorite dish overall is the mu shu shrimp, but you do have to ask for... More

Yen Ching offers an extensive Chinese menu, including several appetizers, soups and combination plates. Everything is delicious. My wife and I particularly enjoy their Sunday buffet, featuring many chicken, beef and pork options, two kinds of soup, crab ragoon, egg rolls, noodles and rice. A great dining experience!

I have been going to this restaurant for at least 20 years I usually go at lunch which is very decently priced and always appreciate that the tables are set with linen tablecloth and napkins and has a very lovely dining room. The food is consistently good and I love their hot and sour soup.

This is clearly the best Chinese restaurant in Clinton. They've been around for more than 30 years. The food is pretty good, nothing to complain about. The dining room is a little dark and in need of a facelift.

I am from Springfield, MO...home of Springfield Cashew Chicken. Was missing the flavor of home when we went to Yen Ching. On the menu, they have their own version of Cashew Chicken...made my day. It has a lot more garlic and more soy than Springfield's version, but still very good. We tried dumplings, won tons and both our entrees were... More

Friendly staff. Best Chinese cuisine in Clinton. If Chinese isn't your thing, there are better dining choices around. Prices are not out of line - fair, but not a bargain. Decor could use a little updating and lighting could be brighter.
