Best place around to order a Chinese take out meal knowing that it will always be fresh and hot. No need for a long wait either. The service is really good too. I like the menu as it is varied compared to other Chinese food restaurants I have been to.

I have nothing but good things to say about Szeto's! Poor Sandy runs her little tush off nonstop because we all keep coming back for that amazing food! A+!!! And even when she's busy when I go in she has a smile on her face, and if I call in with an order for my lunch she's always made it... More

Just ok. Owner needs customer service skills. Not that great of a selection. No spicy food options. Ok food for a small town I guess. Will wait to go to a bigger city to get better food and service.

The building/location is not all that presentable but the service was fantastic and the food was pretty good. It is a great take out option...not sure it's an eat in restaurant.

Food is very good probably the best Chinese in Amherst Sackville area service can be a little rough around the edges by times but don't take offense that's just her way it is too bad they didn't have a decent area to sit and dine in

Originally from Amherst NS I now live in Toronto but would travel halfway across the country for this food which I often do. Szeto's has the most delicious Chinese food I've ever tasted. My family and I have been going here almost a decade now and will keep it part of our family tradition whenever I visit home.

My family orders from Szeto's Wok as our "first choice" for Chinese food! The food is always good quality and delicious, and prices are good. I'd advise calling in your order early, because they book up quickly, especially on weekends!

I travel a lot for work and whenever I'm in or near Amherst I always make sure I stop at Szeto's Wok. Everytime I go there the food has been consistently delicious, warm, fresh and cooked to perfection with great portion sizes! However because of this they always seem to be busy. The wait times can be long but I've... More

Although Sandy can be abrupt you just have to know how to take her, she's a wonderful lady and always friendly when I go in, just be sure to call ahead for your order, they are always busy and with good reason, best Chinese I've had !
