The food and service were great, however, the prices are too high for this level of restaurant. I won't be going back due to the prices.

We had delivery to the hotel and we were thankful. Wonton soup was very hot, but the filling was weird texture and the broth was oily. We ordered 3 egg rolls and ate 1/2 of 1. They were disappointing. The shrimp and vegetables in garlic sauce was okay. I didn't see any jumbo shrimp and the shrimp didn't taste fresh... More

I stopped in for a quick meal and was pleasantly surprised. The service and prices were great but the food was awesome! I had sesame fried tofu and fried rice.

We eat here about once a month for the Sunday buffet. Everything is good and fresh on the buffet. It is the only Chinese restaurant in Salem that we go to.

The food and service are very good. Prices are reasonable. The employees are very pleasant. It is one of the few places that is quiet with no TV's or loud music. It's easy to enjoy conversation along with good food. Highly recommend it.

I've eaten and taken out from this restaurant. The food is great and the service is too. They are friendly and helpful. We love the beef and broccoli from here. Szechuan Chinese is our go to Chinese restaurant. It is always a pleasant experience.

Szechuan Chinese has a good reputation and we had eaten there before 3 years ago. We found the service to be excellent and the food was nice. We did note that SMG was excessive; so if you have sensitivities or fluid retention issues, you might steer clear.

Clean restaurant and attentive service. Food was of good quality with many choices. Fork and spoon with no knife was a little unusual. Prices were reasonable and it seemed like a popular local spot. Good option if you are looking for Asian food, but not the "local find" that I look for when we travel.

Thank David H
