GREAT FOOD, TERRIBLE PEOPLE SKILLS

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... read 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.

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.

The best Chinese food in Amherst, Nova Scotia. We normally get " dinner for two ", good price,plenty for leftovers. Like other reviews, must plan ahead because they are so busy. If you want takeout Friday, Saturday or Sunday order in the morning or you will be out of luck! We never did eat in so can't comment on that.

Szetos has the best Chinese in town, but I find myself going to Woos lately because if I don't plan ahead, I feel like I'm being a huge pain in the butt when I call or walk in for food. I understand they're busy, and it's great how she can keep a handle on phone orders/waiting on customers and everything... More

So good, that if you are considering Zeto's call in advance, because due to popularity the call in takeout line can sometimes be long...but worth the wait!

The food and service was great, they're busy even on the snowiest day (April 1st and it's a snow storm!!) We got sweet and sour shrimp, fried rice, singapore noodles, and almond ding guy! It was delicious. Just next time, I'd ask them to pack the sweet and sour shrimp and the sauce separately!
