My wife and I have been eating here for over 20 years. Always had great food, with the hot and sour soup being the best I've had anywhere! Had my first visit since the new owners. Sadly the soup recipe changed along with the ownership! VERY disappointed! I would not buy it again. Always a bummer when an old favorite... More

For years Sam Chen has owned the Szechuan restaurant in downtown Johnstown and recently retired. The new owners have the same great menu, the same great prices, and the same huge portions. The Szechuan fish is one of my favorites and the new owners make you feel right at home.

It's not fancy, or huge, but the food is outstanding. Doesn't matter if you have the buffet or off the menu everything is hot, yummy, and PLENTY! And if you're looking for a great drink, have one of Sam's Volcanoes. But don't drink more than one or you might not make it home! And every Mother's Day, every mother gets... More

I've been here quite a few times and always ordered off of the menu-- never tried the buffet. The food was always hot and fresh. The biggest complaint I've had were the egg rolls have both shrimp and pork in them and I don't like shrimp so I have to miss out on those. They don't make just pork ones.... More

This place has great food. They have a second restaurant on Scalp Ave. as well. Great service. I especially like the Hunan chicken and shrimp.

While most Chinese restaurants have gone to a stricly buffet cuisine, SZECHUAN in Johnstown still retains the traditional oreder-off-the-menu-and-be-served way of dining - FOR DINNER. Lunch is buffet style, although with somewhat limited choices. BOTH are very affordable. A full liquor bar is offered with both bottled and draft beers. Dinner menu slections are numerous, and everything tried has been... More

Johnstown has little to offer in the way of varied ethnic food. As Chinese goes, it's ok - I've had good and not so good meals there. It's reasonably priced, and open when a lot of other places aren't downtown.

All the locals know this is the place for Chinese. Huge portions and great value. Best hot and sour soup and general tso's anywhere!
