They have a good lunch buffet. I love the Chinese chicken and sweet and sour pork. Good variety and it's good for large parties.

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 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?

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
