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.

I have been there with a couple of Chinese friends of mine, who suggested this place as authentic Chinese restaurant. I really enjoyed the dinner, starting from the décor of the restaurant, which is pleasant and relaxing. The food is kind of spicy, but the level is "American spicy", so it is definitely enjoyable! I had some chicken with nuts... More

Szechuan House is where we go to experience true spicy Chinese food, well prepared and served. The wait staff is eager to explain the many dishes offered, and describe the specials of the day. Tonight we had chicken and bamboo shoots in a spicy sauce as an appetizer, then our favorite, crispy fish in pickled vegetable sauce. Yummy! These flavors... More

I consider myself knowledgeable about Chinese food. Rarely do I find a place that reinforces the knowledge that Chinese cuisines are probably the best. This place was recommended by a physician (who is Chinese) that I saw. I was bowled over with the food. Not since the days when I worked near Chinatown in NYC have I encountered such authentic...
