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.

Best Chinese buffet in Abilene. Great food. Lots of choices. Always fresh, because the food moves fast. Nice wait staff. A lot of other Chinese buffets seem to always be hot inside. This place is cool, so you can enjoy your food. A little pricey, but it's all you can eat. Go hungry. I really enjoyed with my friends.

Always,always the best food. Have never been displeased. Great wait staff. Never a long wait to get a table, even when they appear busy.

Very overrated. The entrees are average and nothing exceptional. Service is average. Management seems to be over impressed with their facility and their food. Lots of very self serving awards decorating entry way make the place appear a little cheap.

Szechuan offers a lot of food for a reasonable price. Each dish is easily shared by 2 people. You can watch the cooks prepare everything, which is nice. My daughter who has been to China said much of their menu is very authentic and not Americanized. They are usually friendly and the atmosphere is formal enough to wear a suit... More

What a find in Abilene! Delicious Chinese flavors. I started with the Szechuan Wontons. With a hint of spice, they are addicting. The hot and sour soup had just the right mix of spice and sweet-sour taste along with fresh vegetables. For your main course, you can't go wrong, but I'll steer you towards Chef Huang's Regional Specials. With these... More

My husband had the chicken curry and I had the chicken fried rice. We loved the fish pond outside as you walked in. We also liked seeing an open kitchen which was very clean.
