Good Food & Prompt Service

My wife and I have been here twice. Each time service was prompt. The food struck me as unusual at first, but then I realized they were using genuine fresh ingredients. It's a flavorful departure from your typical Chinese restaurants. I'm no authority on the authenticity of the dishes, but you... read more

Sushi is excellent, great value for price. Order online and you will get a free item. Always ready on time and we have never had a bad dish. If you dine in, do the pu-pu platter for fun. The fish are fun to watch too. Highly recommend.

We have been to this restaurant many times over the last 3 years and the food has been consistently good, better than most Chinese restaurants I have been to. The decor is also a step higher than most Chinese restaurants with white tablecloths and clothe napkins. I highly recommend it.

Some of the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. I have since left Salem and still get intense cravings for this place - their egg rolls are amazing!

We order lunch frequently from Szechuan for the office, and it is always very tasty. I have tried several different luncheon specials, and they have all met my expectations. Good egg rolls and very good hot and sour soup.
