Just finished eating here with my family and overall, it was a good experience. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. We ordered egg rolls (vegetarian)and were pleased with the amount for the money. I ordered the General Tsu's Chicken and my wife had the Vegetable Lo Mein. My boys had lemon chicken and egg drop soup with pork.... More

We get takeout from Chinese Szechuan at least every two weeks. Their food is reliably good. Our order never differs - moo shu pork (with two extra pancakes), Mongolian beef (extra spicy) and steamed rice. We also ask for their house Hoisin, mustard, and sweet and sour sauces. They are so much better than packets! Along with the order they... More

My family and I went here it was very good they do have dishes like orange chicken but it's not that kind of restaurant. It serves Szechuan dishes like cold spicy noodles, pork belly (it's good), and Many meats vegetables and soup.

My wife and I eat regularly at this restaurant; in our opinion it is one of the two best Chinese restaurants in Pleasanton. The food is well prepared. We particularly enjoy the lemon chicken and the vegetable mushu. Service is generally very prompt and always very friendly.

We've gone here about once a month for ten years. It stays pretty much the same except the prices have gone up some. The people are the same too. It's near our home. We get take out quite often. The menu is extensive but the seafood is almost all shrimp and prawns. Try their items marked spicy.

I visit this hidden gem in Pleasanton so often the staff knows me and my friends and what our favorite dishes are! Always, always we order the black bean fish filet, then peruse the menu and pick something old or something new. They never disappoint. The prices are moderate, the dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients and always tasty. They... More

Always happy to get back in the Bay Area as Chinese food in southern Oregon is wanting. Food here is not good and we threw away most of it. Very sad.......

As soon as we sat down in this restaurant, our server brought us glasses of ice water and a pot of hot tea with cups--a very welcome start to our meal. The day's lunch special, Malabar prawns, and the eggplant in hot garlic sauce were both exceptional--generous portions, perfectly seasoned, reasonably priced. Smaller and less well-known than some other local... More

Picked up food to have in my hotel room and was pleasantly surprised. They sure give you a lot of food for the money. I liked the crab rangoon - probably my favorite part of the whole meal. The General Tsao chicken had a ton of meat in it. The folks were friendly when I picked up my food and... More
