Szechuan is excellent for their buffet lunch, their dinner entrees, and Chinese take-out choices. Always fresh and very well prepared. Nicely packed and always ready for take-out. Week day buffet is super. We go here for lunch from work quite often, my wife and I go here for dinner or just call in a to go order. Excellent spot and... More

My wife and I have been patronizing the Szechuan (mis-spelled "Restaurant" outside!) for a good 20 years. We mostly go for Sunday buffet. The consistency, variety, and the quality of the food here is superb! What we enjoy from the buffet is virtually as good as any entrée might be...

We moved from Salem 8 years ago. Szechuan was always our favorite Chinese Restaurant, We decided to drive to Salem this week and see if it was as good as in the past. We were not disappointed. Food is still great and service was good.

Centrally located, with ample parking close by, an almost-authentic chinese restaurant that serves not only Szechuan-style cooking and a very reasonable price. The buffet ($6.95) is plentiful, but I'd prefer a' la' carte. For the evening, the tables are covered with white tablecloths.

We have been either eating here or getting takeout food (they also offer home delivery within approx 5 miles) here for about 14 years, and ADORE this place. Most dinners are about $10 each, the menu lets you know whether the item is normally spicy, pick-up can be within 15 minutes max (unless they are UNBELIEVABLY crowded, and sometimes pick-up... More
