Better options are out there. Ordered lucky 7 for $26+ entree that was supposed to have lobster. Two Lobster were in the sauce but smaller than the shrimp (lol) and tasted funny. Mu-shu pork was tasty. Overall, not much to highlight and won't be back.

There are Szechwan-style restaurants that understand the cuisine is spicy, but has its own special flavors. Then there are those restaurants that throw a lot of red pepper onto the food, and call it “Szechwan”. From what I ate at the Szechwan Restaurant, I can put it into the latter group. The Ma La Chicken and Scallops I ordered was... More

My husband & I have been coming here for over 12 years now. I cannot find better pot stickers around here. Nancy knows when we walk in, she heads to the kitchen to get them started; I don't even need to ask. The egg rolls are crispy & light, not heavy soaking in oil. You can ask them to put... More

After traveling to China I came back and realized that Szechwan Restaurant is the closest Chinese food I've had in America.

We love Szechwan at any time of year as the dining room is on the second floor of the building, and it's nice to look out into the downtown area, no matter the weather. Szechwan also has a very nice bar. The service has always been good, and the quantity of food offered is such that we often take home... More

Went to this place with a co-worker for a business lunch. They offer traditional menu items and a buffet. I selected the buffet and was not disappointed. There were eight entrees to choose from. This food at this place is outstanding and well worth the asking price.

This was a wonderful experience. The food was out of this world. I had hunan chicken which was very fresh and flavorful. My husband loved his pork dish as well. Portions are large and at a good price point. The place is newly remodeled and the atmosphere is very nice. The service is also very friendly and helpful. A definite... More
