Somewhat hard place to find ebeven though just over the road from Marriott Residence Inn. Service awas fine, cost was reasonable, food was good. Fairly soulless atmosphere but I was there for food not the vibe.

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant in the valley. Always authentic, reasonably priced, and flavorful. The atmosphere is not fancy, but the food is the emphasis. You won't be disappointed. Water boiled pork is sensational

We stopped by Phoenix after a week-long trip in Utah, we're desperate for Chinese food. Our friend suggested this place, we were skeptical initially, but once we saw the menu, we knew it was authentic. The dishes were traditional Sichuan style with tongue numbing sauce....More

The first time I dined here was last week. The service was poor and there was little English spoken. I decided to give them another try today. I ordered chicken teriyaki and since they only provide you with a fork I tried to cut the...More

We had dinner, party of seven. Service staff was cold but relatively efficient. Food was pretty ok. Not spectacular. Decent amount of Szechwan peppers in dishes. Service can be improved but I don't think they care.

There is absolutely no connection between what kind of oil I personally use for cooking and my review of the Szechwan Palace. Consequently I am not answering, because the question must be connected with the restaurant.
