Just ok. Owner needs customer service skills. Not that great of a selection. No spicy food options. Ok food for a small town I guess. Will wait to go to a bigger city to get better food and service.

The building/location is not all that presentable but the service was fantastic and the food was pretty good. It is a great take out option...not sure it's an eat in restaurant.

Food is very good probably the best Chinese in Amherst Sackville area service can be a little rough around the edges by times but don't take offense that's just her way it is too bad they didn't have a decent area to sit and dine in

Originally from Amherst NS I now live in Toronto but would travel halfway across the country for this food which I often do. Szeto's has the most delicious Chinese food I've ever tasted. My family and I have been going here almost a decade now and will keep it part of our family tradition whenever I visit home.

My family orders from Szeto's Wok as our "first choice" for Chinese food! The food is always good quality and delicious, and prices are good. I'd advise calling in your order early, because they book up quickly, especially on weekends!

I travel a lot for work and whenever I'm in or near Amherst I always make sure I stop at Szeto's Wok. Everytime I go there the food has been consistently delicious, warm, fresh and cooked to perfection with great portion sizes! However because of this they always seem to be busy. The wait times can be long but I've... More

Although Sandy can be abrupt you just have to know how to take her, she's a wonderful lady and always friendly when I go in, just be sure to call ahead for your order, they are always busy and with good reason, best Chinese I've had !

Thursday, February 11 our father passed away. My sister was home from Calgary and wanted Chinese food so I told her to order ahead, if not, the same old record of rudeness from Sandy plays about how busy they are. It's getting pathetic actually. Phoned was off the hook for sn hour, when she finally got through she odered. I... More

I will never order from this place again! Sandy is plain RUDE and if I treated customers the way she does I would be embarrassed! Never be late if you just happen to be eating in because if your food is on the cool side it's an inconvience for her to go warm it up! Never ask for her to... More

The Chinese food here is arguably the best in town and they make great pizzas but it's sort of like Seinfeld's Soup Nazi. Order in advance and you are okay but when things get busy it is a coin toss. One person makes the pizza so you get those between orders and there are a lot of company orders so... More
