I've dined here 3 times and was very pleased on each occasion. The décor is very tasteful, which is uncommon for most Chinese venues. They pour a good drink and the service is outstanding. On my last visit I had the orange duck which was outstanding. I've not had wonderful Peking duck since leaving Taiwan, but with a couple of... More

Carol and I stopped in at Szechwan 123 after church this afternoon. Quite busy when we arrived but seated right around because table of two available. Despite being busy, service was good and the food was tasty and good. I had the crab raggoon along with the walnut shrimp. Service was quite good given the busy nature of the time... More

I was looking online for a "decent," Asian based cuisine in Wilmington when I came across an add for this restaurant. It had 3 stars compared to the others and was located at the end of a strip mall, but once I got there and went inside, I was in another part of the world completely. I grew up in... More

We've often eaten at this place and, given the scarcity of chinese rstaurants, it managed to satisfy our taste for "chinese." Not outstanding food, but certainly adequate. Today we went there for lunch and had a very bad experience. The first dish I ordered, "fresh" mahi-mahi, was either not mahi-mahi or it had been improperly handled/prepared. It was so pungently...

I have driven by this restaurant hundreds of times and never noticed it, so when it was named Best Chinese in Wilmington this spring, I made a point of finding it. On the corner of an older shopping strip center on busy College Ave. with minimal signage, is a little oasis. You enter a space decorated in browns and beiges... More

My husband and I live in Sunset Beach, NC but travel 50 miles when we want good Chinese Food. Around us the only places are fast food type Chinese. For us it is worth the trip. The lunch specials are very good but if you don't want something off that menu there are several others items on the regular menu... More

This Is the only Chinese restaurant in Wilmington, that would not go out of business in New York in a month. In fact, the quality here is sufficient to make it a viable competitor in New York. All dishes consist of fresh ingredients, properly cooked and professionally served. If you don't see what you want on the menu ask for... More

Visits to Szechuan 132 recently (live here) have not been that great. The atmosphere and service are very nice, but honestly there is NO FLAVOR to the fried rice or wong tong soup, and the noodle is too thick in the wong tong soup. Entrees are ok, but I've only eaten at this restaurant during lunch. Wilmington needs better choices... More
