The staff was friendly. The food was delicious with generous portions, but most of all fresh ingredients. We had the pork fried rice that actually had nice chunks of pork. Will return next time in the area.

Took a large group of teens for dinner - menu was expansive, great choices plenty of items to choose from! Shrimp was delicious and spicy, dumplings were tender and filled with tasty beef and pork. Fried rice was delicious! Service was spot on, very attentive and I can't stress enough how fresh veggies and the whole dishes were overall!

The smell wafting out drew us in and the food was quite good. Much better flavors and options than expected-- definitely worth a stop.

I've visited Szechuan many tomes over the past 20 years to eat in for lunch and dinner, for parties we have hosted in their downstairs room and for take out.

A friend and I had lunch here, two luncheon specials with soup and rice. She had chicken, I had spicy beef. Both dishes were good, but nothing really stood out. Service was polite and prices were reasonable. It's a nice place to have a meal.

Food is quite flavorful with many choices for all when you come to visit. There is no problem adapting some of the dishes to your personal tastes (mild or hotter as you request).

My husband and I go here on a regular basis. The best Chinese food around. We drive about 45 minutes to get here but it's well worth the drive. Food is always yummy and it's ready in no time. Service is great!!! 😊
