A friend of mine and I went here for the buffet today. We arrived at about 1:10 pm on a Tuesday, and found that already about 20% of the food serving trays were empty. They were never refilled. Frankly, there aren't all that many serving trays in the first place. Some of the flavors were pretty good, and the onion... More

My favorite Chinese place. Great food, I pick up carryout about once a month. Like most Chinese restaurants the restaurant is outdated but the food is fabulous!

Eat here occasionally, but order and pick up often. Humble, modest decor, but really excellent Chinese fare. Don't get to go often for lunch but they have a killer buffet for a modest price. Have been going here for at least 15 years.

I used to eat here about once a week, and we still either get take-out or eat there whenever we are in the area—which isn't often enough! I've only listed my very favorite dishes, as I've yet to have anything here I didn't really enjoy. The atmosphere is pleasant, the staff friendly and eager to please. The food is generally... More

Nothing special here, but you can always expect good traditional Chinese food. Staff is friendly and it's a good dependable local place.

It was expensive for Chinese food. The food was ok, but not great. Delivery was not very quick. They used to have a lunch buffet that was ok.

I have been going to Szechwaun Kingdom for years. The Chef learned his trade in Singapore and proves it in the dishes. The Szechwaun Kingdom uses fresh food items. I have tried many items over the years. I like their Pot Stickers. For lunch, they have some good items. The Princess Chicken is white breast chicken in a really good... More

Food here is of two types: tasteless and bad.I have literally never had a worse Chinese meal other than in Budapest, Hungary back in Evil Empire days.

We ordered seafood tofu. Tofu was lightly fried just right. Big scallop/ shrimp / soft fresh fish. Not too salty. We ordered to go, come with two fortune cookies and two almond cookies and a pack of jesmine green tea bag.
