My girlfriend and I ordered Walnut Shrimp and Governor Chicken from this place. The shrimp only had 6-7 actual shrimps and the rest of the container was filled with stale deep fried noodles (see picture!). Not only that, the sauce they used was so bad...that we ended up throwing the shrimp out. The chicken was over-breaded and tasted like it was not freshly prepared. This food was also wayyyy overpriced!!! On top of the bad food, I also noticed that the staff was unfriendly when I came in to pick up the food. I am African American and I hate to say it...... but the lady at the front was a lot more friendly with the other customers walking in than with me. This is pretty sad and I wouldn't have expected this type of treatment at a restaurant like this. Don't waste your time or money here. There are a lot of other Chinese restaurants in the area with better food, better prices, and a better atmosphere.More

This place is so underrated. The food and staff is awesome! The place is super cozy. The service is prompt and everything is so delicious and fresh. The carry out is also very good. The containers keep everything warm!

House of Szechwan has awesome food! I've going here for years and I really love their Mongolian beef and their beef egg foo young, my two favorite dishes! I always get good service from them and great food!

Very nice, comfortable, colorful interior, Chinese themed, sets the pace and expectations. Excellent Chinese and Filipino cuisines, and great soups not to be missed. Lunches are a special deal, with tasty, sizeable egg roll, soup and entree. Use one of their coupons, as they do...advertise. Clean kitchen / cooking area visible from take-out order area. Entrees tend to be large portionwise, but make for a nice second meal at home. Good lunch and dinner values. Craig & Judy Kopstain, Mt. Prospect, ILMore

One dish we ordered was bland and tasteless. We were ready to chalk it up and never come back, Our waitress went out of her way to change our first-impression of this restaurant. She had the kitchen re-make the order. The second iteration of the...dish was delicious. We were extremely impressed with their desire to make us happy. These folks know hospitality. We will return.More

Chinese food that the Mrs. and I enjoy is the change in our restaurant experiences and delights. We have had their Chicken Wonton soup along with their shrimp egg rolls always a crowd pleaser

What a rellief to find a true Oriental restaurant instead of Thai or the trendy sushi places. There used to be a lot of these types of restaurants in and around Des Plaines. Now this is the only one and, certainly, not to be missed....The service is stellar and the atmosphere is very nice. You must know that the lunch menu does not include all the items that are available. If you want chow mein or chop suey they will make it for you. Just ask. They are very flexible with requests for no salt, MSG, etc. At lunch exceptional egg drop soup is included. And, as always, tea and fortune cookies so you get a three course meal for one price. Try it, you're sure not to be disappointed.More
