We were looking for something a bit more authentic vs "Tex-Mex" Chinese and the Szechuan House delivered. The menu was unique with many offerings I haven't seen since my business trips to China. My wife went bland but still enjoyed her meal. I had to pick out a few of the red chiles from mine after an initial round of... More

Szechuan cuisine is best recognized for its mouthwatering use of spicy chili and peppercorn. A well-known adage describing Szechuan cuisine goes, “one dish, one style; one hundred dishes, one hundred flavors”. Szechuan Cuisine started its seasoning tradition of "paying attention to the taste" and "attaching importance to pungency" as early as the start of 16th century.

We had moo shu shrimp, pork & pickled green beans and chicken with asparagus. Wow! Pancakes and shrimp filling were perfect - temperature, salt, mushrooms, sauce, shrimp. I REALLY liked the delicate pickling of the tiny chopped green beans plus it had the perfect amount of heat. The chicken was Soooo tender and asparagus were very fresh and perfectly cooked.... More

We have reviewed this restaurant almost three years ago, in October 2011, and stopped by again, frankly by a sort of misunderstanding. The restaurant offered discount vouchers on Living Social, so we checked the on-line menu. Well, the domain of Szechuan House in Hamilton is for sale, so the restaurant doesn't have its own website. We had to rely on... More

There is a wide variety of authentic Szechuan Chinese offerings on the menu. We tried spring rolls, egg rolls and scallion cakes for appetizers which were all very good. I tasted three different main course dishes that I thought were all very good as well, a Singapore Noodle (thin noodles sauteed with mild yellow curry, chicken, pork and shrimp), a... More

Menu in Chinese and lots of native Chinese folks there - tells you the food is great. I love that those who know go. While the decor is a bit goofy and the tables pretty close together, there is enough staff to really provide great service. We ordered standard stuff (egg rolls - skip them), general tsao's chicken (skip it)... More

My 3rd visit here...over the timespan of a year or so.... DIRTY. The men's room was dirty, the toilet was dirty. At the table, you looked up and there was dust on the window treatments, in the corner. Supplies (kitchen and cleaning) were stacked visible to customers near the bathrooms. My take...they don't care. I went for the Dan Dan... More

Do NOT go here if you are looking for Americanized Chinese food. If you crave HOT & true Schezuan dishes, a menu with genuine choices with use of all animal parts and you don't know where to start?? Go! My Chinese friends took us here and now I am spoiled. I go alone... Be fearless if you love HOT/Spicy dishes... More

I had lunch here today with my co-workers. Quick service, but really greasy food. This is a "truly authentic" place?

So far Szechuan House in Hamilton is the best szechuan food I have ever tasted in the US. It is even better than some szechuan restaurants in my home country. It is truly authentic, and so delicious.
