Great food & excellent service - not to be missed for Chinese Food

Excellent food, great prices and outstanding service. They use a little cart to bring the food to your table. The Hot-&-Sour soup is outstanding, full of flavor and light in texture, not too much starch to thicken it up, like other places. The Egg-Roll is very good, lots of vegies inside, the skin... read more

I had eaten at their downtown location (now closed) but this was my first time at this location. Downtown was just okay. This College Road location was much better. I had a chicken/steak dish. with fried rice. Many restaurants over cook the chicken and steak for this type dish. Their chef did an excellent job. The size vs price was... More

We stopped in here on a weeknight on the way to a movie. Service was fast, enabling us to make the start time. I asked about something that they don't have on the menu and they offered to make it for me, very nice. Everyone liked their food. Chicken fried rice was nice in that it wasn't greasy.

My wife and I have lived in the Wilmington area for over a year and have been looking for a really good Chinese Resturant. By chance while picking up our new vehicle I asked our car salesman if he had a good recommendation. He suggested the well known Szechuan 132. We were both pleasantly surprised at how good the entire... More

New offering of Hawaiian Shrimp Egg Foo Young was excellent. Lo Mein was very good as well, as usual portions were ample. Egg rolls are very good as was the hot and sour soup. Joe and his wife are eager to please and will prepare off menu requests, even on a busy Sunday lunch visit.

I love the duck here. It is prepared several ways. My favorite is the duck with the orange sauce. It is flash fried and tender. The appetizers are great as well. If you want authentic New York tasting Chinese food, this is the place! I thought the prices were very reasonable as well.
