The food was good, if a bit bland. Very nice varied menu. They put down a basket of crispy sugary noodles that were addictive. Almost could be dessert. Hot and sour soup was served very hot, as were the egg rolls. Nice fried dumplings that...could have used a dipping sauce. We split a serving of stir fried noodles with chicken, beef, and shrimp with vegetables. My mistake, in that I was expecting crunchy noodles like in Vietnamese food, but the peppers in there were still crunchy. Very quiet, attractive restaurant. Not the best Chinese food I’ve ever had, but a pleasant dinner.More

Tonight the two of us felt like Chinese food for dinner. The vegetable roll was a great starter. Then we had a mu shu beef and a mu shu vegetable. Excellent choices.Friendly service. And we could engage in pleasant conversation. A lovely evening.

My wife and I had lunch here during a recent visit to Highland Park as we happened to see their sign and Chinese food sounded good for lunch. They gave complimentary sweet fried wontons. This would be a better offering for dessert. Not something before...the meal. We started off with an order of Crab Rangoon which was quite good. We ordered two different main dishes which we split. The food was good. The portions were very generous, enough for two people. Good server. Restaurant was clean.More

Small restaurant with big performance. Very cozy & friendly atmosphere. Food is among the best Chinese in Lake Count, IL. This is a definite "staple" for us in the "Chinese" category. Family business, and it shows...

Unpretentious restaurant has been around since 1985 -- offering dine in; carry out (compostable take-out bags); delivery; and catering options. The food is very good, the portions are large, and the service is wonderful. I especially recommend the home style tofu, which I haven't found...anywhere else. Lunch specials.

We recently picked up take out from Little Szechwan in Highland Park. We have tried many of the surrounding restaurants and heard good things. Overall, we enjoyed the food. We ordered mongolian beef, sesame chicken, eggrolls, combination fried rice. Everything tasted fresh and had good...flavors. we would return.More

When our daughter lived in Highland Park we would dine in or do take out from Little Szechwan. The meals were high quality and cooked to perfection. Today we happened to be in Highland Park and I suggested we go to Little Szechwan for a...late lunch. We were promptly seated by Sue who also was our waitress. The food came out promptly and was excellent. The only thing I was surprised at is they charge for tea.More

Little Szechwan is a comfortable, friendly establishment. The ingredients are fresh. Options are sufficient to please a vegetarian. I would say the menu is designed to please the less adventurous palate, i.e. not a lot of flavors going on and perhaps not the most authentic...when it come to Szechwan Chinese cooking. Still the food is good and Little Szechwan is worth a visit.More
