We are from Napa & were going to be in the area & wanted something different . Found them online, read Trip Advisor reviews so we tried. At First Lady that sat us seemed harsh, however it is a different culture. Glad we stayed. Food was very tasty & a lot so don't over order. We had a meal for... More

We had a group of 7 for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. They had a round table available for us and brought menus and water. Lunch menus came later (they serve from the lunch menu on Saturday). Orders were promptly taken and all questions regarding vegetarian preparations answered. Soon, food began to appear. Since each person ordered separately, some people... More

i like this place for take out chinese. Often i will just get it from Panda at Southhampton cause it is easier and cheaper but , i prefer take out from this place. This definitely better than the one on Columbus. Not too sure about the one above the sports bar on 5th east?

I have been a customer of Szechwan House since 1998. In all my visits I have never been disappointed. The food is prepared well and very delicious.

We tried them all and Szechwan is our favorite of the Chinese restaurants in Benicia. They have a huge menu and everything we've tried has been very good. We always request no MSG and always get it. Favorite items are Walnut Prawns, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Hot and Sour soup is the best! Eat in or take out. Lots of... More

Vegetables were cooked perfectly with good variety including baby corn, water chestnut, fresh mushroom, bamboo shoots, broccoli and carrot in a light sauce. Bean Curd dish was about 1/2 vegetables and... More

I think that this place is ripe for a restaurant impossible intervention. The white rice that came with our meal was clearly really old, dry and stale. The place was deserted on a Friday night - bad sign. The other “hot” food was marginal. I don't even want to think what the food and kitchen looked like. We will not... More
