We were hungry and tired after long drive, just stopping off I-20. Checked our trip advisor for something different than usual interstate food. This was a little off the route, but well worth the stop. Beautiful setting. Best Chinese food we have had in awhile. Use your GPS. No problem to find location. So nice to get delicious food quickly... More

After a while all Chinese restaurants tend to look and taste the same. Thankfully something new here. Orange rind chicken was outstanding. Excellent waiter (sorry I can't remember your name but nice tats). More than what I expected for Abilene.

This place used to be the best in Abilene as far as we were concerned. The food seemed to go downhill for a while in the early months of 2016 but it came back to higher standards. Recently however, we've had difficulty getting our order correct. The service has gotten worse. We hope they up their game and keep everything... More

I love love love their tempura shrimp and hot & sour soup. The entrees are excellent and the menu is quite diverse. The chef will modify your choices such as to omit onions, etc. Great decor and a relaxing place for lunch or dinner.

In the city that I originally came from, I got very spoiled by the high quality of Chinese food, so this review might be a bit biased. Now, Szechuan is pretty good when everything is taken together. The service is OK. The food is OK. The atmosphere is OK. But merely OK does not make a FINE restaurant. Hence the... More

One reviewer mistakenly called this a "buffet." Nothing of the sort! This is real deal Asian food worth stopping for. Nothing "run of the mill" about the way the food is prepared and how it tastes. May have familiar selections, but quality sets this restaurant apart. Don't think shrimp and broccoli could be done any better! Very economical lunch prices.... More

My husband had been told this is the place to go for Chinese food so we went here to celebrate with our kids. The building both inside and out is beautiful- it was also very clean. We were the only people waiting when we arrived and we're seated almost immediately but from then on we began waiting for everything. My... More

This restaurant is a really nice environment inside and out. The food is always fabulous, I totally recommend the sweet-and-sour hot soup it's my favorite! One good thing is the servings are big enough you can share you have unlimited rice and you can spice it up as much as you like it.
