Great Chinese Food

We dine in and often take out here. The food has always been great. It is family owned and operated. Will return.

All the food is fantastic and I've eaten a lot of Chinese. Walnut prawns are to die for. Always a table available. A great Benicia secret.

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 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

Stopped in for early dinner before going to Benecia Farmer's Market on same street. Ordered Braised Bean Curd and Deluxe Vegetables. Service was very quick and food was delicious. 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
