In most respects this is a typical strip mall Chinese restaurant. There really isn't any ambience or decor to speak of. What distinguishes the Szechuan Chef is that the food is quite good, the servcie amazingly quick and the price quite reasonable.

I LOVE Szechuan-style deep fried fish. I have tried it everywhere and I have found only two other restaurants, one in Oregon and one in NYC, that makes it as good. It's crispy. It's spicy. It is just plain delicious! Their hand-shaved noodles are also wonderful. The other dishes we've tried are yummy, but do yourself a favor and try... More

Szechuan Chef is simply the most delicious, authentic Chinese food in Bellevue. I've visited China and even Szechuan Province, but the food here is better! From the Maupo Tofu, the Chong Chang Chicken, and the Dry Style Wontons, everything on the menu is delicious! Yes, the food is spicy! And boy is it good!

The service is wonderful and so is the staff. The food can be dazzling and beautifully presened. However the restaurant needs to refurbished, beginning with the horrible entrance door. Don't let that stop you. Inside is drab, but clean. They do an incredible job with undercooking the uveggies in the dishes. Be sure and order a side of Dry Roasted... More

The food here is delicious and has the right combination of flavors to make a great dining experience. I would recommend the shrimp fried rice and the noodles, which were amazing!

Arrived on a Wednesday around 5:30 pm. When we walked in there was only one other couple seated in the restaurant. As we came to the door no one was there to greet us. a gentleman walked out from the back counter and stood by a table. We assumed that was his way of telling us to come sit down.... More

New Issaquah location. We were pleasantly surprised with our take-out order at the Issaquah location. We have dined at the Bellevue location for lunch many times. Always consistent food, tables can get very busy during the lunch time. Tonight we had their almond chicken, vegetable fried rice, hand shaved noodles and garlic green beans. When I called in my order... More

Six of us had dinner with several dishes. The seafood tofu soup was good as was the sliced fish. Other dishes ranged from average to poor in taste. Service was just adequate. I would not go back as there are several other Chinese restaurants in Bellevue that offer far better food and service.

A true Szechuan food in Bellevue. I was there for lunch and I got a great Mandarin fried chicken with fried rice and sweet an sour soup with abundant tea for less than 10 dollars. Quick service. Great.
