Excellent Chinese Food

We walked to Szechuan as it was close to our hotel. The food and service were excellent. The prices were reasonable and this restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. Highly recommended!

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.

I have visited this restaurant on two occasions; once for weekdaylunch with a friend and once for Sunday lunch with my wife. Both times we opted for the buffet (less than $10!) and have been pleased with selection and service, and especially the reasonable price. There's not a real extensive selection, but plenty of variety which is more than adequate.... More

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.

I had the lunch buffet here after my coworker told me how good the food was. I was very impressed with the quality of the food. For a Chinese buffet, this was super tasty. I LOVED the pot stickers. The service was great an d everyone was very attentive and friendly. It was about $10 for the buffet and a... More

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.
