Not yeally a restaurant as it's a takeout

The Chinese food here is arguably the best in town and they make great pizzas but it's sort of like Seinfeld's Soup Nazi. Order in advance and you are okay but when things get busy it is a coin toss. One person makes the pizza so you get those between orders and there are a lot of company orders... read more

5He food is always hot, fresh and good. The staff who takes your order is aggressive, rude and quite off putting. Her lack of customer service savvy is legend in this town. It is only when we really crave Chinese food that we manage to tolerate her crazy rants.

I called the restaurant 8 times, first 4 times it was busy, the next 4 times, they would not answer. So I decided I would go inside. The girl was in back doing up orders, so me and my family decided to sit down and wait, well when she FINALLY came out, she asked me, "well are you waiting for... More

The food from Szeto's never fails to impress...however, the service is another thing. They will take their phone off the hook if they are busy. Some days you have to call an order in by noon if you want it for supper. My thought, if they are this busy...hire more people. Once my Mom asked for Singapore Noodles, and the... More

The food was basic Chinese stuff. You get a good portion, but there isn't anything special going on. I am not sure why so many people like it. It was worth the first try, but I probably won't be back. If you love Chinese food try the ribs and beef and broccoli. The chicken schnitzel thing was just okay.

In my opinion this restaurant is really meant for take-out only. Not a great dine-in option, and looks like a converted corner store. But who cares, its the food Im after. Great food, all made, prepared, and cooked onsite. Excellent taste, great prices. Best chow mein I've had in forever! Absolutely ZERO complaints on the food or price. BUT, do... More

Szeto's Wok has the best Chinese food around. I know people who ordered there food for their Christmas party which was in Riverview, NB. You get good size portions for your money. I advise here to anyone. we eat here often.

Service is excellent and the food especially Chinese is the best this side of Moncton and Truro. They are very busy but wait times are not usually all that long..

We waited inside this place for 45 minutes and wasn't waited on or asked if we even had an order or even acknowledged. I understand they are busy... But we are still people.
